Bob Jane is a famous australian race driver. Jane won the Australian Touring Car Championship in 1962, 1963, 1971 and 1972. His 1971 ATCC win was in a Chevrolet Camaro ZL-1 with a 427 cubic inch engine. Jane was forced by a rule change to replace the 427 engine with a 350 cubic inch engine for the 1972 championship but the Camaro still managed to beat the opposition, which included Allan Moffat's famous Boss 302 Mustang. Of the 38 races he started in the ATCC, he finished on the podium 21 times.

The kit is a monogram street machine that i swapped the wheels, gutted the interior and added the rear 'drop tank'. the flared rear wheel guards were made from aluminium sheet. decak sheet from pattos place. i built it about 3 years ago.
