I didn't phrase that very well. I don't believe that he did the filming for the entire movie, just the part that was on the track at Riverside.

Maybe I didn't make it very clear either, but the car with #50 only ran at Mid Ohio, so somewhow it ended up in Ford film also.

I used to send my racing films to Old Cars Weekly to post for me but the person that dowloaded it to YOUTUBE doesn't work there anymore.

Thanks, Tim. Even though blurry that one picture looks like Frank Search's '68 Camaro spinning in front of Dick Hoffman's '67 and Gerry Gregory's '69 at the '69 Riverside Trans-Am.

Here are a couple of photos of Mark Donohue's Camaro at the '67 Marlboro Trans-Am.

The red #92 camaro being dirt-tracked is Rusty Jowett.  He was a leading independant driver in 68 and 69 with 13 top ten finishes including some top fives. He also had a 2nd and 3rd in 2 Nascar baby grand races.  He wrecked his 67 camaro at the 68 Watkins Glen T/A race - I was following him when suddenly he went off track and rolled the car a few times.  A 68 car was then built from a Penske body-in-white with much help from Donohue. Rusty was very fast but did not race in 70 and only once in 71 - often wonder what happened to such a promising racing career.  Paul Nichter from Buffalo was the next owner and racer of that 68 car. "Nick" used to tell me just to "drive the wheels off that camaro" I was racing.

June 1967 Mid-Ohio Trans-Am. George Follmer, standing in the driving suit with Firestone across
the back, is substituting for Mark Donohue who is driving at LeMans for the Ford team. Roger Penske
is crouched on the other side (red shirt) discussing the rear brakes with a crew member.

That is a very neat shot Jon, it looks quite sparsely populated, is this during practice ?
