I agree! Your Trans-Am Camaros section is an incredible read. The narratives, interviews, and vintage photo's are truly an asset to CRG. Thanks for the hard work Jon!

I couldn't agree with Marty more, but it is an asset not just for the CRG, but to all of the car community!!! Jon Mello is doing wonders for our vintage history.

The CRG website is the premier website for factual information and history on the 1st-gen Camaros. With few exceptions, all efforts have been focused on the stock, as-built production line cars. This new Trans-Am section is meant to provide facts and information authentic to the era in which these 1st-gen Camaros were built and campaigned on road race tracks (up through the year 1972, after which the T-A rules changed). I have been very fortunate so far to have had a lot of help from others who have provided a treasure trove of old photographs. These historic photographs have been a huge benefit to us all and I am very appreciative for the positive feedback that I have received regarding this project. Thanks to all of you.

I didn't see an official new guy intro segment.  I am more partial to the AMC racers in this series but I do appreciate and photograph all racers from the era and series. Hello!

Never really had the chance to see anything in regards to the trans am races. All that I have read is very interesting and always gets my undivided attention. Drag racing was fun but this kind of racing is way better. It's a shame there isn't much of that going on theses days. I use to watch the IROC races when I got a chance but that isn't the same is it?
