Yes, Andy, how about a Firebird bumper so people will quit asking me to make one for them?

New body looks great!

Yep. After getting whupped on by the Mustangs the first 4 out of 5 races of the 69 TA season the Penske Camaros came back strong and beat the Boss 302s the last 7 races. I was at Mid-Ohio that year and saw the Mustangs lose their first race when Bucknums Camaro didn't come in for his last fuel stop and Parnelli couldn't catch him in time to take the win. Seems Penske put the Camero fuel on ice before the race and was able to get enough in the car to avoid having to make his last pit stop. Another famous Penske unfair advantage tactic he became famous for.
