Yes, that sounds right - Ron Weaver was the Corvette driver.  Will try and find out more info re Doug Weaver and his camaro.

Chad pointed out to me that Flickr now has photos from the Dave Friedman Collection on its website.
The link below has images from both the 1967 Sebring 12-Hour and the Sebring 4-Hour Trans-Am
intermingled together. Lots of great stuff here.

Here's a photo personally taken by Mike Scott (group/7) back in 1969 at the St. Jovite/Mt. Tremblant Trans-Am race.
It shows Donohue's car after rolling off the scales, which is part of the tech inspection of each car prior to the race.
Many thanks to Mike for sharing this with us from his personal collection.

Lothar Motschenbacher was brought in to drive the John Martin #4 Javelin at the '69 St. Jovite Trans-Am. Here is his car
in the line for getting weighed. Lothar had a solid 4th place finish, however this was the race with the huge crash that
took out 3/4 of the factory-backed Mustang team, plus others. Thanks to Mike Scott (group/7) for sharing this with us.

Mike Scott pointed out these interesting Can-Am photos at http://www.flickr.com/photos/buell/sets/72157627941013859/
that interestingly included an interior shot of one of the ex-Jim Hall Camaros. This would possibly be the Mo Carter car due to
the red floor?

You're welcome, Mike.

I'm remembering the Chaparral Camaro dash as being metal not plastic. I'll have to ask around to be sure.

I stand corrected. The piece that holds the gauges is fiberglass.

I received some very nice black & white photos today from Don Struke. He took these at the 1967 Marlboro Trans-Am,
the first victory for Penske Racing on the Trans-Am circuit. Many thanks to Don for sharing these photos with us. We
can't get enough of old-time photos around here.

Wow, great site  Smiley

My dad, Robert Clemens, raced his Silver #71 1970 Camaro in the Trans-Am Series in 71 and 72.
Here is a picture of his car...1971 at Watkins Glen.

Hi Robin,

In case you missed it, there is a story about this car on the HTA site under roster.  I remember this car from racing against it at the 72 Glen T/A race.

I can also remember your dad racing at Waterford Hills, but can't recall in what car(s).

Thanks for the compliment. It nice to have you join us Robin. Pretty neat to have a
dad who raced a nicely prepared Camaro in Trans-Am back in the "Glory Days". Smiley
