30 min vid on Camaro history

Vid quality isn't great, but I found this to be very interesting esp. the short interview w/ Mark Donohue and Roger Penske in circa 1968 along with footage of Z/28 racing in the Trans Am series. Enjoy!

Great vid. Mark Donohue is one of my automotive idols, his book is a great read if you haven't already.

Read that several years ago "the unfair advantage" and it's a great read. He was a very special person committed to both driving and engineering. If you like trans-am racing or inside racing history its a must read......
