 Just a note on the Jerry Thompson & Tony D  Corvettes... Jerry was in B/P at that time. If I recall correctly, Tony led most of the Runoffs @ Riverside in A/P later , but was passed on the last lap by a 427 Cobra. I think Jerry was 6th in B/P

The John Mahler GT-350 was originally owned by Arnie Fick from Chicago.  John Mahler sold it to Bill Paul and it was the last GT-350  to run in SCCA National competition into the 1980's.

John Greenwood's Corvette, which actually ran in Trans-Am in 1973 due to the new rules which were more in line
with the IMSA series, which had become more popular as the Trans-Am series lost the factory supported teams.

Warren Agor ran a 454 in his 2nd-gen Trans-Am car in 1974 because the 5-liter (305 cubic inch) displacement limit was eliminated starting in 1973. When the
Corvettes and Porsches were allowed in Trans-Am in '73, wheels went to 10" wide and the displacement went way up, that spelled the end of a great race series.

2nd-gen Camaro of Paul and Kenper Miller ran a 460 cubic inch big block in the 1974 Trans-Am series. This car is the Todco-built Camaro
raced by Dick Brown in the Trans-Am series in '71 and '72. (Now owned by Kerry Hoctor)

As promised, here are a few pics of my brother's 69 A sedan car.  It was built in the early 70s by Dick Fisher of Wisconsin.  I believe it ran its first AS race in 72, Central Division.  He won Cen-Div in this car in 1976.  This car is also registered with the Historic TA group.  TA-025, if I recall.  This car will be for sale in the coming months.

Another angle....this car has a real 302, though not originally a Z/28.  He also has a genuine GM crossram that hasn't been installed yet.  Car is race-ready, just needs some minor tweaks to be "at its best" visually (paint chips, etc).  This car has been raced with Corinthian Vintage Auto Racing for the last 15+ years, one  of the most 'vintage correct' organizations out there.

Just curious...  Who drove this car in the Central Division in the 1970's?  What was won in the Cen-Div in 1976?

The car is painted "as raced" in '72-76...   Dick Fischer built/owned/drove... It won Cen-Div Championship in '76.   Was usually #18 or 81.     Was listed for sale in Autoweek after championship....   without the logbook in front of me, other owners were ( probably out of order)  Dr. Norm Hoeffleur (sp?)  O.M. Malsbree,  Dan Beatty, who brought it to Texas, painted it red w/ white stripes #70    I may be forgetting one, too....    Ken

Did it win the Cen-Div Regional points championship in 76?

My father won the Cen Div AS National points Championship in 1976 in his 1969 Camaro... 

He raced his 1969 Camaro in the Central Division from 1974 thru 1984.  His won the Central Division AS (and later GT1) points Championship in 1976, 1977, 1979 and 1980.  He finished 2nd in Central Division Nationl points in 1975, 1978 and 1981.  He finished 3rd in Central Division National points in 1974, 1983 and 1984, and finished 4th in 1982. 

He won the Runoffs in 1980, finished 3rd in 1981, finished 4th in 1977.  He competed in the runoffs in the Camaro from '74 thru '84 (except '82).

He won the June Sprints in 1977, 1979 and 1981....

(All in his 1969 Camaro).

All told, he raced from 1955 thru 1999....

I'm away from all my materials, but the "photocopy" of the front of the trophy that Dick Fischer sent me reads something like " 1976 Central Division A-Sedan Champion"   with drawings and names of the tracks... I don't think Mr. Fischer ventured to any "national" races. The ad in Autoweek with the checkered flag photo reads basically the same thing...   I'm sure it was a "points total" regional Championship.    Ken

I remember Dick and the car...  He must have won the Cen Div regional points Championship in 1976 - it wouldn't suprise me at all, as he was very quick.  It's a beautiful car!
