1968 Chevrolet Camaro

1968 Chevy Sunoco Camaro Tribute

Rides from the want ads

Excellent pictures and information in this want ad.

History: Mark Donohue’s and Paul Van Valkenburg’s timeless book, The Unfair Advantage, revealed how Roger Penske and Donohue painstakingly modified their Camaro team cars to be wicked competitors. when it comes to famous race car Camaros, few are as iconic as the Sunoco (referring to the Sun Oil Company) Camaro. Back in the ’60s Sunoco/Penske was, for all purposes, the Chevrolet factory team in Trans-Am racing. Backed by Rodger Penske with Mark Donohue behind the wheel, they crushed the competition in 1968 (in a ’68) winning 10 of the 13 races that year. LeRoy Gane was the car’s crew chief for drivers Donohue and Craig Fisher. In 1969 they switched to the new body style and again won the championship by placing first six out of 12 times. The reason they didn’t dominate as decisively in 1969 compared to 1968 was that Ford caught up a bit in the performance department with the introduction of their ’69 Boss 302 Mustang.

The Sunoco Camaro is powered by a big block detuned race 350cid V8 engine, with a 4-speed transmission. The engine was fully built with a street tune, however, very surprised the car drives exceptionally well and is not too loud for street driving which is what this Sunoco Camaro was built for. It has power steering, power brakes, fully detailed engine bay with custom pieces made especially just for this car.

The Body is in great condition and has been sandblasted, coated, and painted during restoration. Paint is of very high quality and has a mirror finish to it. Body is rock solid, and all detailed undercarriage. The Body is straight as an arrow. During the restoration process, it received all new mounts, new door seals, all new chrome pieces, new weather stripping, all new lights, bumpers, grill, all new bolts and nuts all around, all new windows etc.. Incredible amount of attention, and detail has been placed in this car. Underneath all floors are in excellent shape. I encourage you to see all the detailed pictures I posted.

The interior was all done brand new during the restoration, Seats, door panels, dash, and carpets etc. Custom Sunoco steering wheel with center pad, roll bar, full TMI interior, racing rpm gauges with pod, fire extinguisher and more. Also, have an extra seat.

This car will turn heads at every corner!

Harley-Davidson shares tank

big earnings miss

Harley-Davidson shares were marked 10.7% lower in pre-market trading following the earnings release, indicating an opening bell price of $32.7 each, a move that would wipe out all of the stock’s gains for the past three months and value the Milwaukee, Wisconsin-based group at around $5.4 billion.

The motorcycle maker is battling declining sales as its core riders age, particularly in the United States, its largest market.

The Volkswagen Beetle

“The People’s Car”

The original concept behind the first Volkswagen, and its name, is the idea of a people’s car – a car affordable and practical enough for common people to own.
Volkswagen the name, which is literally “people’s car” in German.

The engine fires up immediately without a choke. It has tolerable road-handling and is economical to maintain. This small cars air cooled engine has great power and gives the feeling of strenth considering its small size.

The Beetle featured a rear-located, rear-wheel drive, air-cooled four-cylinder, boxer engine in a two-door bodywork featuring a flat front windscreen, accommodating four passengers and providing luggage storage under the front bonnet and behind the rear seat.

The last Beetle was produced in Puebla, Mexico, in July 2003. The final batch of 3,000 Beetles were sold as 2004 models and badged as the Última Edición, with whitewall tires, a host of previously discontinued chrome trim, and the choice of two special paint colors taken from the New Beetle. Production in Brazil ended in 1986, then started again in 1993 and continued until 1996.

On January 17, 1949, the first VW Type 1 set wheel on U.S. shores.

The Stinson Black Crow

1910 Elgin National Trophy Race

The relationship between automakers and the race track has always been with us.
I found a record of this car in a couple of races, they may not be the one mentioned in the ad.
This ad says “No Mechanical Troubles” the race results I found say it did not finish.
