While I don't mind talking about unique and special cars built by various Chevy dealerships, a discussion along those lines should be in its own thread and we need to guide this thread back to vintage, original photos of Trans-Am cars from the late '60s and early '70s. Thanks.

While searching for something else on the internet I stumbled on this cover for the January 1971 edition of Stock Car Racing magazine which features a pit stop for the 1970 Penske Javelin of Mark Donohue.  It mentions an article entitled, "Javelin: A Racing Success Story."  I don't recall seeing this cover.  I searched through the 1970 and 1971 season review threads and didn't notice it.  If it is here somewhere, sorry for the repost.  If not, does anyone have this magazine or the article?  I found the picture at a web site that shows the covers for most editions of Stock Car Racing magazine issued between 1966 and 2008.  See them here: http://home.comcast.net/~racestats/SCRMag.html

Here's an ebay auction with a photo of Ed Leslie, Jim Hall and part of a Chaparral Camaro in the foreground. Taken at the 1970 Lime Rock Trans-Am race.

jon, great photo ! looks like the car is coming through tech, post race. can of bud on the hood, and a sweaty ed leslie. that's troy rogers leaning on the car with cap, who we lost in may of last year. hall's main fabricator, he was responsible for the build of the chaparrals, and also pretty much restored the cars for the petroleum museum in midland. and sandy hall in the pale yellow jacket.

Mike, thanks for the added detail of who some of the other people were in that photo.

Harley Davidson legend Cal Rayborn raced a '67 Z-28 for a short time and had it entered in the '69 Riverside Trans-Am. It ran during
practice but for some unknown reason did not make the race.
