Trans-Am coverage from Sports Illustrated magazine. (Jon Mello Collection)
Mark Donohue had a full roll cage in the car for the first time at the Bryar race. He also had thinner gauge sheetmetal
from the doors forward according to his "Unfair Advantage" book, which was specially stamped out for him on Fisher
Body tooling in a one-time deal. Unfortunately, the sheetmetal was destroyed beyond repair when a broken LH rear axle
caused the car to crash into the wooden barrier coming out of the final turn during a Saturday practice session. I do
think the hood ended up being saved.
