The Camaro’s Temporary Retirement
Martin Thomas hung on to the car after it was retired from racing in 1973 and he maintained it for nearly 20 years. In the first half of the 90s, the Camaro was rebuilt for a triumphant return to circuit life. A 5.7L V8 gave an update to the hardware under the hood to make sure it stayed competitive. This was matched to a Muncie ‘rock crusher’, a four speed with a close ratio that could handle the new power.
The Second Owner To Present
Martin hung on to the car until he sold it to the current owner in 2004. The lucky new owner carried on the 1968 Camaro’s racing legacy by taking it to many more events. These included the Aston Martin Owners Club Masters as well as the Heritage Grand Touring Cars. It could also be seen at events hosted by the Classic Sports Car Club.
