Handy Andy Camaro
« on: May 22, 2013, 12:43:44 PM »
Does anybody have pictures of the 1969 Camaro driven by Paul Jett? It was orange and said "Handy Andy" on the rear fenders. I saw it at the MIS Trans Am in 1971.

Here is one of Paul Jett's #97 in the garages at the 1971 Riverside Trans-Am. Dave Dralle's ex-Penske, ex-Woods Camaro is in the background (#62).

You're welcome, Mike.  If I find any others, I'll post them.

Anyone know what happened to this car? - raced against it a few times.

No, I don't know what happened to it.  Paul Jett also raced a Mustang with Fred Van Beuren in the '67 Trans-Am series.

The #97 orange Camaro of Paul Jett and the red #32 Dodge Challenger of Dick Brooks visible on the left.
Bob West's blue Mustang is on the right. This photo was taken at the 1971 Riverside Trans-Am.

Another shot of Paul Jett's car as seen in an old Hot Rod Yearbook.
