Buick Camel GT Car

001-1buickgtp

 

For you performance Buick enthusiasts, sketches and photos of the Buick Camel GT car (Morgan Performance Argo JM16 GTP) campaigned by the Morgan Performance Group in 1985–86. Racing photos courtesy of Racing Sports Cars. My involvement was limited to a sketch of a paint scheme. I don’t know why the rendering shows rear fender skirts unless the photos of the prototype provided for reference had them. The car competed at Sebring in 1986 (DNF); the 1984 Camel GT500 in Charlotte (10th); the 1984 Coco-Cola 500 (5th); the 1984 Camel Continental at Watkins Glen (DNF); the 1984 Michigan 500 Camel GTP (7th); 23rd 1985 Annual SunBank at Daytona (17th); 1985 Charlotte Camel GT (6th); 1985 Lumbermens 500K Camel GT (10th); 1985 Camel Continental (9th, 1st in Lights).

 

 


 

Buick LeSabre PPG Staff Car

Another Buick promotional vehicle, this time a PPG Staff car. Kind of ridiculous now. Now that I think of it, it was ridiculous then as well.

This Oldsmobile Calais rendering developed into a modeling project at Diversified Glass Products where Gary Clark and I modeled the flared fenders. I found a few photos of the resulting race car on the Racing Sports Car site.
