Chevrolet Camaro Z28 1972
Product Code: C3219
Over the winter of 1971 - 1972, GM engineers Dick Hoffman and Dave Horchler of H&H Racing prepared this 1970 Camaro for competition in the SCCA's Trans-Am Series. This car was the third and last of three Camaros built by them for the Trans-Am Series.
Dick Hoffman competed in four Trans-Am Series races in the 1972 season and had two very respectable finishes, coming 5th at Sanair and 7th at Mosport. This Camaro was noted for being painted bright yellow with progressive black and red graphics and large numbers. It currently races on its original and very rare Motor Wheel "Spider" wheels. The number 48 was uniquely chosen because of them being the fourth and eighth letters in the alphabet, as are Dick Hoffman's and Dave Horchler's shared initials.
