I think it was Fishbacks chenowth 1600 (might have been a Neth car.)You guys nailed it with the Rough Riders, Robby's Valvoline, Ivan's, Steinberger's and Riviera. The artists that did paint work back on the trucks and buggies back in the day were soo creative & talented as compared to the computer generated vinyl graphics of today. Other favs include: Dailey's 5/16, Tideman's 1600, Bob Gordons Millennium, Red/Black Riviera AWD buggy, Day Gang's 16, Dejongs Manx, Herbst basic red, LVDC (white) and I forget who it was (Bro G will remember LOL) that had the 1600 car that was green on one side and orange on the other. I always liked the cars you could see a mile away. There were a ton of cool buggies out there that had killer paint, not only trucks...
A few of my other favs (some were real, some fantasy, others took creative liberty):

Don't forget one of the earliest groups: TEAM MODERN MOTORS, that fielded cars in Class 1,2,5,and 9 for:, Ivan Stewart, Bobby Ferro, Johnny Johnson, Dickie Lee, Andy Devercelly and others. The Team was owned by Paul Speights and managed by Guy Jones and later Scott McKenzie. Greg Lewin was a fabricator/mechanic. Many great relationships with Jim Connors, JN Roberts, Kitty O'Neil, etc. Ground breaking organization of the mid 70's.Rich Minga had a group team, where the cars were all painted his colors and race the Baja Concepts logo on them. The “group or club” concept helped teams team up to pit each other, get better costs on parts etc. Rich was in his class 5 Porsche, Ken Stroud with in class10 which at the time was beam cars (pre12) and I don’t remember the others, but they had 6-8 cars in the club.
I’m actually surprised we have not seen this concept used today? Maybe because we have more Pit Clubs you can hire at the races, that these “Sage Council” concepts are not needed or desired anymore?
