Hello folks,

For those attending the Monterey Motorsports Reunion this weekend, on Saturday, at 2pm, in the Trans-Am alley, at the big red Edelbrock transporter, we'll have a "track talk" session on some of the unique parts that were made for these cars in the glory days of the Trans-Am. 

The overview will be provided by some of the members of this forum (Jon Mello, Robert Lodewyk (Sixteen Grand Sedan #56) and myself (OCTARD).

The discussion and part overview will last about an hour, and be on some of the special parts that GM made for their Trans-Am racers.  Special focus will be on varying GM crossram manifolds, crossram and single four cowl plenum air cleaners, etc.  The individual items discussed will be off the vehicle for better viewing and individual inspection.  Please drop by and learn a little bit about what makes these Trans-Am cars so special, by some of their parts. 

-Chad

Thank you all for the kind words.  I really appreciate it.

There is a plan for more of these "Track Talks," and I will work with the next presenter(s) to help them come off even better.  Future "Track Talks" will be on a variety of different brands and topics related to the Historic Trans-Am era, with a presenter who is knowledgeable on the subject.
