These are the homologation papers filed with ACCUS, the American affiliate of the FIA, to have the Camaro
certified as a legal Trans-Am car. While the Z-28 itself did not meet the minimum production total of 1000
cars produced, the Camaro SS was certified as a "Group I" car (which did exceed the production total) and
the Z-28 was classified as a "variant" of the SS and was classified as a "Group II" car. Group II was the one
that qualified the car for Trans-Am competition. These sheets were provided to me by Matthew Prendergast.
Many more pages to follow as time allows.

Thanks for the question, Phil. You can read some information on that hemi-head 302 Chevy engine at the link below...

On looks alone, a very impressive piece. However, it did not deliver the horsepower to match its looks.

Has anyone seen or does anybody own some of those clear plastic '69 headlight covers? I swear I saw a set somewhere maybe 20-25 years ago but have not seen anything since.
