1966-1971 Trans-Am Cars: 2011 Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion - Steve's Camaro Parts

The Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion is part of the Pebble Beach Concours weekend, and last weekend's classic races have already brought out braces of Can-Am cars, Jaguars new and old, and these Trans-Am cars from the heyday of the muscle car, from 1966 to 1971.

Created by the SCCA, the Trans-Am series brought the musclecar era into full flourish, even lending its name to the Pontiac Firebird Trans Am. It made names like Donohue, Gurney, Penske and Parnelli Jones household names--if you were lucky enough to grow up in that kind of household.

A Demanding Race Circuit

Few racing circuits present as difficult a challenge to drivers and cars as does Mazda Raceway
Laguna Seca. Its 2.238 mile length and 300 foot elevation change includes 11 turns, highlighted by the notorius " corkscrew." In operation since 1957, Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca is one of the world's premier racing circuits.
