Here is another ad for Castrol XLR congratulating the 1970 Trans Am Championship winning team of Bud Moore and his drivers Parnelli Jones and George Follmer.  It obviously appeared after the season was over in the fall of 1970.

This doesn't look like it came out of a magazine, but it's pretty cool all the same.  It was posted by "Greg Beaver" on the Historic SCCA Pro Racing Trans-Am Series Fan Group on Facebook here: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=105465366166383&set=o.109038482465812&type=3&theater  The "ghost fold marks" might indicate that this was a brochure, but I'm not sure.

Here is another one from Castrol XLR talking about the 1970 Trans Am Championship winning Bud Moore Ford Boss 302 Mustangs.  This one might have been a poster due to the faint folds that are barely noticable.   It was posted by "Greg Beaver" on the Historic SCCA Pro Racing Trans-Am Series Fan Group on Facebook here: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=105879929458260&set=o.109038482465812&type=3&theater

Cool ad Jon!  Interesting that they would feature a picture of a "fabulous" 1967 Z28 in a publication that was produced during the 1968 model year (July 13, 1968).

Looking at the Berger ad again, what is an "Amaro?"  I looked up "Amaro" and "Berger Amaro" on the internet and couldn't find anything relating to cars.  On the other hand, Amaro is an Italian Herbal Liquor.  Was this just a typo of the word "Camaro" or was Berger selling alcohol too?  LOL!

Great Z28 ads Jon, I have never seen either one before.

Both of Jon's ads show the same 67 Z with what appears to be a rear spoiler Shocked that was not an option for 67 Wink

Wow... a dealer closed on Sunday's???

Yes, it's very curious that Chevy had a rear spoiler in mind for quite awhile, but never released it as an option for 67.
