Penske Trans Am Camaro – Mid-Ohio 1968
I was there but didn’t shoot this picture:
Penske Trans Am Camaro – Mid-Ohio 1969
I was there and shot these:
Above – Note the brake cooling holes in the door latch pillar and the stock upholstery panels – Sorry about the quality, it is a digital scan of a 35 mm shot of a projected Super 8 movie
Above – Winner Ronnie Bucknam
Above – Saturday practice – the front spoiler has not yet been painted red
Above – Donohue out of gas after a “fuel mileage test”. The tow vehicle is a factory show Scout 80 – the George Barris “Python”.
January 23, 2023 – In response to another request for Scout Python pictures:
These are the only other pictures I have. As noted in the comments, I worked at IH when the Python was built. The Course Marshall at that Mid-Ohio Trans-Am race in ’69 was a Scout engineer at IH (note the IH Engineering sticker on the vent window). He was able to borrow the Scout for Course Marshall duties.
The engineer was Lee Wilson, a racer and avid race fan.
