HISTORY OF THE CAR AFTER FIRST TEAM
Ran the latter part of 1986 in SF Region GT1 group. Switching to the regions Super Production in 1987 we took the championship. 1988 to 1992 we ran selected SCCA races and west coast Trans-Am and IMSA races. My best finish was 4th in the IMSA AAC series at Delmar Raceway.
CONDITION WHEN RETIRED (OR FOUND)
I acquired the Camaro in 1986 as a roller out of a barn somewhere in the mountains of California. In 1988 we updated the car to SCCA/IMSA new rules and specs and updated the body for that year. In 1992 after running a 4-hour endurance race, the car and I retired from racing. Parked in the trailer since then, I extracted it from the trailer over the winter to which I’m in the process of a total ground up rebuild to be 95% correct and race ready this summer.
