Robert, keep us posted on what you find out from Al Richards.
Below is a photo of the Gagnon Spring Firebird during a Wednesday practice session for the St Jovite
Trans-Am race. This is the last known photo of the car before Jerry Titus took it out for a test run and
crashed it. There are conflicting stories about whether this car was rebuilt later or scrapped and several
of us here are working "behind the scenes" to see if we can come to a definitive conclusion. There are
a bunch of stories of cars that got wrecked in Trans-Am and were they rebuilt or were they replaced.
It's part of the "fun" of researching the old Trans-Am series. Lots of mystery and intrigue for those who
care to delve deeper into the subject.Dick Brown Collection
Here are some Montreal Gazette newspaper articles (courtesy of Chad Raynal) which discuss the
midweek (pre-race) crash of Dick Brown's Firebird by Jerry Titus. The Firebird was replaced with
a '69 T/G Firebird and we're not sure of the details behind who paid what for the car. This
new '69-style car was orange rather than the previous yellow/green and research is pointing
toward this orange car being the car used by Guillermo "Bill" Ortega at the Wolverine Trans-Am
earlier in the season.
