Trace Chalmers
1967 Chevrolet Camaro
Originally driven by Ken Deckman

This Z-28 Camaro was ordered new through Alan Green Chevrolet in Seattle, Washington, by Ken Deckman.

Ken Deckman drives his Z28 to an 8th place finish at its second Trans-Am race, Pacific Raceways, Kent Washington.

Prior to this car, Ken had campaigned Corvettes with a fair degree of success. Ken had Nickey Chevrolet in Chicago build up the original motor to racing specs. The first Trans-Am race for the car was at the Mission Bell 250 in September 1967.

Ken ran the Trans-Am series every year, well into the 1970's, and finally put the car away.

Bob Morton was able to buy it from Ken in 1987, and restore it back to how it looked in it's 1960's heyday. The complete race results for the car in the Trans-Am's classic era is as follows:
