No, works for me. You do know that you have to pay a fee for an on line library card don't you?

By George, you're right!  I zoomed in on this 1969 Z/28 from the '69 model year launch in '68 and notice the tires are Firestone Sport Car 200s...

Wow look at the differences...
No drip rail trim, no 302 on the ZL2 hood, rear stripes on the deck lid edge, rear stripes to rear glass trim is 3-4 inches.


Black stripes on a NON vinyl top car, probably been discussed before as found in some of the pics at the GM photo store. I like the combo.

That is a '69 car shown to the press before they were available to the public so there are some things about it that are different than a production car such as the color of the stripes, the location of the rear stripes, the cowl induction hood (that would not be available until later in the year), no 302 emblems on the hood, and the lettering on the tires.

Joe, that is actually up in the Quebec part of Canada at "Le Circuit Mt. Tremblant" near St. Jovite. The pictures are misidentified as being Elkhart Lake/Road America but I flagged the mislabeled ones, adding text to ID the right location and certain people in some of the shots. Hopefully the Stanford people will use that info and relabel them eventually. They are the first 15 pictures in the link below.

yenkomark, I think you are talking about the blue maxi ? I believe that car was built with some input from penske's shop & donohue ? sunoco blue with pinstriping. 350/370hp LT1. corvette brakes etc...etc. was written up in the july '69 issue. and I think a full test in the august '69 number. I imagine that mr. mello has instant access to those copies in his library ! have mine in my hot little hand, tried to scan and post but no can do ! Huh

James, I hadn't thought to look for unlabeled photos like that so now I've got more searching to do. Thanks! Smiley

I believe the #34 car is Skip Barber's red '68 Z that ran as #56 later at the '68 Bryar Trans-Am. Here's another photo of it... https://revslib.stanford.edu/catalog/tq104cr5147

The three or four you hadn't seen were from the 1968 Sebring race.

How bout the 15 Penske 67 body with 68 Grille & SS hood, is that the car which was wrecked early in the 68 season?
