    Anybody that doesn't think Trans Am is alive and well, check this out...
    35 cars in the TA2 class race just finished at Sebring.
    Top 3: 1st Camaro, 2nd Challenger, 3rd Mustang.....a good mix of all three makes in the 35 car field!

    On March 25, 1966, the very first Trans Am race took place at Sebring. This week-end the 2016 Trans Am Season kicked off at Sebring as well...
    [​IMG]
    Britain's Autosport Magazine celebrated the race 50 years ago....

    One the cover was a picture of the field about to take the green, with AJ Foyt's #4 Mustang leading the way (and the first 16 laps) next to him was Ed Diamond in the #5 Mustang. The #5 car was owned by Nagel Ford, they celebrated the 50th birthday with this...

    Absolutely! Actually I've been searching through every sim trying to find suitable models. No sim is off limits as far as I'm concerned...

    If you can't find any, we can just build our own models. :)

    I totally agree, I just wish it could be sooner than later. I've already collected a ton of images from the Sebring TA2 race on Saturday.

    Patience grasshopper. :) Just at the halfway point on another mod. lol But if you wanna put those images to use, and focus more on it. For each model, find clear hires shots in 4 different views. Front, rear, side, and top. And make sure they are close up and centered. The better quality pictures in those views the better.. :) Anyhow, will come back to this topic at a later time. Also remember we want the years to be 2016 or 2017.

    LOL!! I'll also talk to Spindoctor, he's been modding for over 15 years, and the original modder of the Vintage Trans Am mod, to see if I can talk him out of semi-retirement and have him help out too.. :) Will see, but no promises on that part about Spin. :)
