Searching for 1969 Camaro ran in SCCA Midwest Council
« on: October 02, 2013, 07:02:42 PM »
Searching for a '69 Camaro built and ran by Fred Braun & Scott Shadel in SCCA ASedan / GT1 during 1970's.   Car was later owned by Lou Carroso and Joey McDougan (sp?).  Last I saw the car, it was sitting outside behind AutoConcepts at Blackhawk Farms raceway, Rockton, IL. It was painted a deep pink color. 

I have spoken with Lou, Joey, and Ray Irwin, from Blackhawk Farms, recently.  Lou was able to inform me that he received a call approx. 3 years ago from a gentleman in WA that was looking to purchase the car because he was looking for the rearend that was in that car.

Ten years ago, I spoke with a person named Kelley, from GA. Email address is no longer valid, and unable to contact via phone. At that time, I thought he had possession of the '69, but I was only able to recover 1 email with information, which was defunct.

If anyone may have information about the car, I would be grateful.

Jay,

I don't know anything about the car but there are a couple of people who check in here periodically that might. Best of luck in your search. Are the photos below from when Fred and Scott were running it?

John - These photos were from the week it came out of paint/ body; circa 1970.

I attached the only photo I have on track.  I will ask Scott for any others.

Spartan Performance was the sponsor on the side of the car.  Spartan Perf. was owned by George McQuisten; a Goodyear tire distributor; he started as Acorn Tire out of Chicago.

Thanks, Jay.  Maybe the track photo will be helpful to someone who will remember something about the car.
