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.

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.

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."
