    Yet more old T/A!

    Quite a few more pics here, sadly some no longer visible but still enough to get a flavour of TransAm in the day. Enjoy!

        That crash (St Jovite) arguably cost Ford the championship in '69. If you read up on the history of that period's TransAm, it is explained how badly that crash set back Ford's racing effort for that season. HTH

            Great link, Martin.

            I have this book which is excellent:-

            http://www.amazon.co.uk/Trans-Am-Pon...992522&sr=8-10

            Actually, I have two copies and at that price, I ought to sell one.

            Nice to see some photos of Allan Moffat and the Lotus Cortinas (he also drove Cougars). He went on to campaign the most successful TramAm Mustang ever in Australia.

              Slightly off topic, but does anyone know any more about this rather painful sight (as seen on Rods'n'Sods);

                No, but from the look of it I'd say it was modern day, not in period. Shame, some nice machinery got tangled up there. Someone will have a big bill!
                EDIT: Ooh! Just noticed that Orange Mustang ('70?) is number 3.

                  Agree it's modern Martin (hence off topic), but surprised it's not been discussed before. By the looks of things there's at least one more car behind these five too...

                  What's with the low wall ??

                    Remember reading this on the Boss 302 site with more pictures, at least ten cars involved from memory.Warm up lap ! (they had not started to race)
                    Best wishes.
