Well, it's been 40 years since the Summer of "Super Camaro" ! The Summer that the Ramchargers became the first 6 second funny car, the Summer that Dwane Ong won the first national event in a rear engine top fuel dragster, just the year before we had landed on the moon, Apollo 11 launched the same day my baby sister was born, "Woodstock" happened ! and "Super Camaro" was under construction. I'll always remember that Summer of 1969 ! Forty years ago, the "Super Camaro" ran Detroit Dragway, Motor City Dragway, Milan and Kansas City, Missouri, where it made it's only full track pass, 7:83@200.89 mph !.............I am so desperate for any photos or memories that anyone may have, I have been on an Internet quest since the year 2000 and in that time I have found Two photographs and one for sale ad, had a model built and met a "million" wonderful people, including all of you ! ........the legacy of the "Super Camaro" will always live with me and I hope my son and someday grandson, but for now, please keep me in your mind and know that someone truly appreciates your thoughts !!!......................Thank You All.......Perry S. Wyatt Jr.
