The race report for Bridgehampton, courtesy of Mike K (Swede70).





The rolled over Camaro of Paul Nichter is the same Camaro raced by Rusty Jowett in '69.
It was not destroyed by this crash and still survives today.

Car Life magazine went out of business and obviously did not continue providing coverage of the 1970 Trans-Am
season beyond the Donnybrooke race. Now we go back to Laguna Seca thanks to Hot Rod magazine and Mike K (Swede70).

This report covers the Road America Trans-Am, where we lost racing great Jerry Titus.

Remaining SCG coverage of the 1970 Trans-Am season, courtesy of Mike K (Swede70). For those
of us who are Camaro fans, it was not a great way to follow up the glory of the '68 and '69 seasons.

Bryar race report from Competition Press & Autoweek, courtesy of Robert Barg.























(That is not Craig Fisher's Firebird in the photo above. I believe it is Gordon Dewar's Camaro.)
