Kurt,
Thanks for posting that photo of Marie Claude Beaumont and Michele Dubosc’s Tour de France Camaro on display at the Paris Motor Show in October 1969.  I didn't know anything about this car, so I decided to do some digging.  It seems that only a few weeks before it was displayed the #44 Camaro RS/SS 396 was driven to an eleventh place overall and first place in the T+2.0 class in the 1969 running of the Tour de France Automobile.  The event took place mostly in France but it did visit Belgium to run at the Spa-Francorchamps circuit and Germany to run at the NŁrburgring circuit.  Here are the details:

"From September 18 to 26, the teams covered a total of 4,936 km divided into 6 stages, which included 20 special tests:

Nice - Nancy stage → approximately 1,425 km, with 7 timed specials: Col de l'Orme (10 km), climb to Mont Ventoux (21.6 km), Col Bayard (6.3 km), Chamrousse circuit (17, 2 km) and the climbs to Mont Revard (10.3 km), Ballon d'Alsace (8.85 km) and Rainkopf (20 km)
Nancy - Reims stage → Ī650 km, with 2 special stages: NŁrburgring circuit (136.86 km) and Spa-Francorchamps circuit (282 km)
Reims - Dieppe stage → Ī 258 km, including the special on the Reims-Gueux circuit (274 km)
Dieppe - Vichy stage → Ī 1,228 km, with 4 special stages: Rouen-Les Essarts circuit (130.84 km), Bugatti circuit (169.38 km), Cap Frťhel (8.6 km) and Magny-Cours circuit ( 50km)
Vichy - Albi stage → Ī 800 km, with 3 special tests: Charade circuit (241.65 km), Col du Minier (21.25 km) and Albi circuit (155.4 km)
Albi - Biarritz stage → Ī 575 km, with 3 special stages: Col d'Aspin (12.15 km), Col du Tourmalet (12.35 km) and Nogaro circuit (52.75 km)"

Thanks Kurt!  By the way where did you find the photo you posted?  When I was searching I never did find that particular picture.
