Neat picture.  In this one, the fenders haven't been opened up....hmmm....is it an early pic?  Also, no front bumper.  SCCA rules stated that bumpers that weren't part of the bodywork were removable.  But wow, what they gained in weight loss, they probably lost in aero.  :^)

shadow ahead, that's the same picture I found, but you beat me to it ! I belong to the canadian motorsport history group forum. I will try and see maybe some one there has something related to the AMX. it's funny how there seems to be little info on some cars. like I said to smkz28, I wish I had taken pictures of everything in the paddock ! but when your 16 or 17 you don't think that way. that someday these will be important cars.

Yeah, found this photo awhile back and then refound it again! We know everything when we are 16 and 17, so who needs to take pictures? :D

Mike Scott from Canada sent me these two pictures which were taken by his friend Adam Papp. They are of the
Bannerman sponsored AMX driven by Bud Tucker. They were both taken at Mosport. Adam thinks the b&w one
is from '69 and the color one is from '71.

Jon, I'd like to say I am grateful, and I hope I speak for other road race aficionados that len toward the esoteric that not only is your site a splendid example of quality articles, pictures, and associations working together to provide a glimpse,but also sometimes gives a sense of the experience of a bygone time in American auto competition.
  The Mosport pics are an example of the rich friendships you must certainly enjoy and it is exciting to be a member here and to stumble upon these treasures pictorial and the implicit relations behind the scenes. Thank you, Sir.

Steve

Steve, I appreciate the kind words. Thank you. This forum is meant to pay tribute to a very special bygone era, to share stories
and information from that time, and to "share the wealth" with others so they might come to enjoy it like we have. There are
things that I have learned by sharing my stuff that I would have never known if I had kept it all stashed away for just my own
personal enjoyment. I have had numerous people tell me the same thing so that has made it a rewarding experience.

I also agree.  Thanks for the inclusion of this 'not Camaro' stuff.   Its hard to admit it this but, I just saw two AMX pictures that I have NEVER previously seen, and they were on the Camaro T/A website.  Way to go, guys!!!

Thanks, guys. Here are two more Adam Papp photos from Mosport in 1971. Nice, picturesque setting for a racetrack.
The Camaro seen in the photos was driven by Peter Wiseman for Fossman Racing and it had Castrol GTX sponsorship.

I'd like to come back to the Mosport AMX and discuss afew things. But first, while I have it in mind, check out this '95 Hemmings article: http://www.hemmings.com/mus/stories/2007/06/01/hmn_feature17.html
Look at the lead picture with the #6 RR AMX as well as the text near the bottom of the article mentioning it. Note the tire sponsor on the rear quarter panel in the photo. Also the red rear bumper. Later today sometime I'll post a photo I have for comparison.

Thanks, Jon.
Check out the photo below and look at the tire sponsor. Check that out against the Hemmings article photo. Also look at the driver mirror and the red rear bumper:
