I came across a few cool pictures on Flickr that were posted by Chris Kennedy.  Click on the following links to see them since he has disabled the ability to download them:

1) AS Chevrolet Camaro driven by Warren Agor during SCCA Runoffs at Road Atlanta, November 1971: https://www.flickr.com/photos/chrisk48/9681240538/in/set-72157635389415953


2) Group of 22 photos of the Trans Am/F5000 event held at Watkins Glen on June 7, 1972: https://www.flickr.com/photos/chrisk48/sets/72157635315418611/


Sorry if this is a re-post.  I don't recall seeing them before.

Thanks for the 72 Glen photos.  It was the last T/A race for old and getting tired 67 camaro warrior. We were dnf with "engine problems".  Not a good way to end our run.

Thanks for posting those links, Scott. Some really great photos there which we have not seen here before.

Those wheels on Agor's Camaro looks small in comparison to the Minilites on the Boss Mustang. I'm sure
they're 15" diameter but with the blacked out spokes they somehow present an illusion of being 14's.

I found some more great Trans Am pictures on Flickr.  Someone named "Carrera RSR" posted 65 color photos of Trans Am events held at both Laguna Seca Raceway and Riverside International Raceway.  The pictures are mixed up but they include shots from 1969, 1970 and 1971.  I will post the photos of the Camaros here but click on the the following link to see larger versions as well as the rest of the fantastic pictures: https://www.flickr.com/photos/wheelock_steve/sets/72157644148754046/

I know I have never seen these before because they contained two great pictures of a Javelin AMX pace car at the 1971 Riverside events that I posted in the Trans Am Pace Car thread.

These first 4 pictures were taken at the Trans Am event held at Laguna Seca Raceway in Monterey, California on August 24, 1969.

2 more from Laguna Seca 1969

Notice the white 1967 Camaro RS along the fence directly above the #1 Mustang.

The second picture is interesting because it is a sign that used to say "The Hot Spot Mustang Corral" but a Camaro fan altered it to say "Go Camaro The Hot Spot Mustard Corral."

While the pictures from my previous posts were from 1969, the next 4 pictures were taken at the Trans Am event held at Laguna Seca Raceway in Monterey, California on April 19, 1970.

One more from Riverside 1971

Is this one of the ex-Sam Posey Challengers?  I recall someone looking for a good picture of the car during its post 1970 season.

Thanks, Zombie. It has already been posted and we are aware of the website but for some of the newer visitors, it's not bad to be reminded of what a great resource that is for vintage car and racing photographs.
