looking good. Does the white car have some racing history since it has the roll bar in it?

Yes but your going to chuckle when I tell you that it was used in hillclimb racing in Pennsylvania and also rally racing somewhere where they used to have cone racing in a big parking lot that was a timed type of racing.I cannot find any documentation on this but the person that owned the car back in 1968 told me that his father raced the car in these scca sanctioned events.If anyone knows anything about the hillclimb  events in PA. or has any names of the drivers that did this kind of racing in Pa lmk.I cant say the last name of the person that I spoke with but if I see his last name on a drivers list I can verify it.The car still has the holes in the rocker panels that the exhaust hangers were mounted to in front of the rear wheels.

I am obviously a fan of red, but the looks of the white one with the driven hard look is really cool.

Did any Camaros use deep dish mags like the RORs on Moffat's Mustang or the mystery mags on subsequent private ownership pictures of Donohue's Javelin?

     In Trans-Am (1972 and earlier) you were required to use a wheel no wider than 8". I believe a 10" wide wheel was allowed beginning in 1973 but the Trans-Am series was not the same at that point.
