I took these pictures of an early 2nd generation Camaro at The Hawk vintage race weekend at Road America.  Is this what the car looks like now?  I don't recall seeing another early 2nd generation Camaro at the event.  I meant to go back and take more pictures of this car and the 1st generation Camaro parked in front of it but we left the paddock area and never went back.  I also saw it on track but my camera battery was out of juice by that point.

If it's not the Greenwood/Hoffman car does anyone know more about it?  I don't recall seeing this one before.

I've never seen the red Camaro before. I'm sure it's not the ex-Greenwood/Hoffman Camaro but other
than that, I don't know anything about it.

According to the entry list shown on the website, it does appear that Ed Wheatley will have the car there.

The Camaro belongs to Sam LeComte......I can see my brother in the background of the photo!  They took several cars up there.  Jody O'Donnel finished third in the big Corvette race;  all were pitted together, all from Dallas.

The red Camaro is the ex-Gene Felton, IMSA Hilborn-injected small-block rocket.....   I really don't know much about how it's set up now, or then; but VERY fast...  Sam says it's scary... ;)

I love vintage races, and some guys have this now, but I wish ALL the cars all had a little poster near it that described its history if there is any, weather significant or not I think itís interesting.
Whether itís the low-buck racer that had been racing his í70 Mustang, with his family for over 20 years, or the big dollar cars like the Greenwood Vette, I like the history.
Some cars are re-creations of vintage cars, which are also cool, but if it has a past Iíd like to know a little without needing to research a few cars I find to be interesting.

I got a chance to meet Ed Wheatley this weekend and see his car in person. Ed's a nice guy and his car really looks nice.
It's great to see this car finally returned to its original paint scheme after so many years. Here are a few shots in the paddock.
