I was at the SAAC-38 Shelby convention yesterday at Fontana and saw a couple of sets of magnesium D-spoke wheels
for sale by J Bittle. A set of 15x8 and a set of 15x10. Phone number contact is (858) 495-3395 for those with any interest.

Man... I wish I had known SAAC was at the Auto Club Speedway, I'd have gone too.

I saw the U of P camaro at Legendary Motorcars (near Toronto) some years ago.  It was there for some time. Currently being raced?  Can't tell who is the current owner from the HTA blurb.
Their information is sometimes way out of date.

Robert, I don't know who the current owner is. I wold agree that I don't think it is currently
being raced. I haven't seen hide nor hair of it for several years.

   The Pitt Camaro is owned by John Miller in Richmond , Indiana.  Spent several days with him and David Tom at the Mecum Auction here in Indy in May. They co-own the Smokey Yunick 1970 454 Camaro

Thanks, Mark. John Miller was involved with running that Camaro back in the early '70s, wasn't he? How come it's not being raced anymore?

   John has sold his printing business in Indiana and is building a home in Florida, so time ( and money ) are a bit short right now.

That's understandable. Thanks.

You never know what you might find in a neighbor's garage. How about an old GT40?

Just thought I’d update on my earlier post about the Edelbrock/AMC re-introduction cross-ram.
IT’S HERE!

The current Owner of Pete’s Patriot, one of the original SS AMX’s, has a business, “Patriot Racing Products”. He worked with Edelbrock to re-introduce the STR-11 cross-ram with only a limited number available. I think it’s remarkable that Edelbrock was able to work with a small company to re-tool for a short run of a product like this. There are some changes to the new STR-11 in order to differentiate this from the desirable and valuable originals.

That GT 40 was bought by the same guy who is a regular on chasing classic cars with Wayne Carini. He finds all sorts of rare cars, and has a pretty nice collection from what I understand. That would be a neat find.
