Reading David Tom's Trans-Am book, it does not sound like the body that was dug out of the snow bank when he bought it was savable. That there are no pictures of a car when he showed up to buy it, just a handful of parts, is very telling to me. I would not personally pay a million or more for a car like that but maybe somebody would. Just my 2 cents worth...

Smiley..  not even if I HAD a million to pay..  Smiley

there was more then one Smokey Yunick 1st gen Camaro. They kind of blend the history together so it hard to tell what that car is or was

I know that smokey had three '68 ? bodied camaros at bonneville to break records. I believe two were 302's & one was a 396. from what I understood in the article these were slightly modified Z'ders to start. I couldn't gather from the article if any of them were the car he raced at daytona & sebring. jon has posted scans of that issue of popular science, january '68 here in one of the threads.
