I'm heading up there in the morning as well...  If the Corvette holds up for the weekend and I don't have to fix "stuff", maybe I'll actually get to watch the TA cars play...  They are soooo much fun !  Charlie

I took these photos of a "new" '67 Camaro Z-28 which had previously been running with SVRA.  I think this may have been its first time running with the HTA group. I believe the owner's name is Johnny Romano. This is the car formerly campaigned by Lake Underwood in '67 and Dean Alles in '68-'69 in the original Trans-Am series.

Thanks to everyone who contributed to the photos! Especially liked the 'film' stuff.

Jon,
Thank you for the link to the race. I also liked the 'little' cars such as the Alfa, and Datsun 510. Im really starting to appreciate them…after all John Morton was very successful in his 510.

Thanks for the link Jon.  Some of those cars brought back a lot of memories, especially the 2nd gen Camaros and the Dekon Monza.
