Continental Divide Trans-Am coverage from Competition Press & Autoweek. (Jon Mello Collection)












Article below implies that the two Z-28s from Ron Tonkin were destroyed in a towing accident. They probably sustained
some damage but they were repaired and sold during 1968. Just who they were sold to is unknown by me at this time.




Other interesting articles from the same CP&A issue.

Continental Divide Trans-Am program, courtesy of Frank Dihartce. This is an extremely hard
program to find so I'm grateful to Frank for sharing this with us from his personal collection.

While searching through www.gettyimages.com I found a couple of pictures of the Jerry Titus Mustang that were taken at the Trans Am race that took place at Crow's Landing, Modesto, California on September 10, 1967.  Interesting sticker on the front passenger side of the car that reads "Shelby: Race Raped"  This seems to be a re-working of the "Race Prepared" sticker.  I don't remember ever seeing this before.   I certainly don't think you could put something like this on current race car, not very politically correct.  Was it an inside joke of some sort?

For more info on each picture click on the following:
