From my personal collection, this is an interview with Payton Cramer and also Dick Guldstrand. These were
printed in the August 67 issue of Raceway magazine, which was connected with Riverside Raceway.

Red arrow in "Late News" section of Competition Press & Autoweek shown below points out that Dick Guldstrand and Dana Chevrolet
have parted ways. This is as of October 28, 1967. Guldstrand went on to open his own shop down in Culver City, CA.
Click here to see some pics of Guldstrand's shop preparing James Garner's L88 Corvettes for the February '68 Daytona 24-Hour race.

The above noted Dana Chevrolet Camaro can also be seen here in a support race during the 1967 Laguna Seca USRRC weekend.  Photo from the Dave Friedman collection, with the full set of the Laguna Seca weekend found here.  Many more A-Sedan cars to be found within this set.

Though I like all the DANA Camaro detail, it's also great to see their tube-frame McLarens.  The small block Chevy with the side-draft Webers, bolted to a Hewland LG-500 transaxle, which is sitting on top of a wooden shipping container labeled ELVA (who produced the "customer" McLarens), is pretty cool too.

Great stuff.  Thanks.

Photo taken on the streets of London, April 1967. This is the "sister car" to the Dana Camaro
driven by Dick Guldstrand. It was built at the same time by Bobby Joe McDonald at Dana Chevrolet
and it was driven by car owner and driver Thomas F. Lynch. It ran as car #28 at Sebring and then
left immediately afterward to race in England and Europe over the summer and then returned
Stateside to race in the Las Vegas 350 Trans-Am in the fall of '67. Raced by Tom in Trans-Am thru 1969.

Jon, great stuff

Dana really had a full plate in 1967 with the Z/28 Trans Am car, the 427 Camaro drag car, the 427 street cars, the ELVA, the L88 Corvette LeMans race car, and running the dealership.

maybe was too much, as they seemed to taper down in 1968

the L88 at LeMans
