The intent and purpose of this forum is to educate the 1st-gen Camaro enthusiast about the road racing history of their favorite car and the people involved with racing them back when these cars were new or only a few years old. Many special parts were made specifically for the early Camaro to make it not only competitive with its rival ponycars, but a winner. Here, we have a lot of respect for our competition because they helped make our car better than it may have otherwise been. This forum is meant for discussion of 1st-generation '67-'69 Camaros not only from a historical perspective, but also is open to discussion of their involvement in Historic Trans-Am racing, as seen on the www.historictransam.com website. We also hope to feature interviews and profiles of the people who originally owned, drove and/or engineered these special pieces of racing history. The intent is to grow this forum and topic of discussion to the extent to which it so richly deserves to be done.

Hello Robert, nice to see you here.  I will give Craig Phillips a nudge and get him involved, or would you like to do that ?

Now we can talk about the real race cars,  without the interuptions of open wheelers.

Just spent a weekend with a bunch of Camaro buddies and were talking about the TA cars and Chad's car and then I get an email from Chad about this.  Great addition to the CRG site!
