    Paul,
    This could be your next move as they need good men at H-M at this time. (You could be living a dream! )

    In 1969 General Motors certainly got hit hard with this fine !

    "1969 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am
    1969 had marked the sales debut of the Pontiac Firebird Trans Am however the car's smallest engine was well over the 5000cc maximum set by the series at the time and it was not used in the 1969 championship. In using the name Trans Am, a registered trademark, General Motors agreed to pay $5 per car sold to the SCCA."

    Jerry Melton also photographed the Hollman-Moody Ford Challenger at the recently opened track at the Michigan International Speedway in April 1969. An SCCA event was held to sort out the new track before the first race of the Trans-Am series in May.
    The infield course that linked up with the high speed banked oval had been designed with input from Stirling Moss.
    With all of Jerry Melton's photos of these two events at the speedway there is almost enough material to write a book including some that I covered last year in a thread about Horst Kwech.

    Would like to see that Ken H, - but between " Her indoors " and Moss Motors - would you have the time ??.

    Thanks for all your " inputs ".
