'70 Javelin TA in Hemmings Muscle Machines

The '70 Javelin TA is in the January issue of Hemmings Muscle Machines magazine on newsstands.  This Javelin, of which only 100 were made, was built to fulfill the homologation requirements of the governing SCCA Trans Am racing series in the late 60's and into the early 70's.  The Javelin, piloted by Mark Donohue, came in second place in 1970 just behind the Boss 302 Mustang (this series had the Pony cars from each manufacturer represented by Camaro, Firebird T/A, Barracuda, Challenger, Mustang and even Cougar).
