Here are a few more from Riverside in the mid 70's I believe, you know when a camera was a potato...

I am wondering if anyone can tell me about the blue GMC that garner is leaning on. Clearly tons of vic hickey accessories and if I'm not mistaken that was the truck used in the pilot of rockford files. Was that garner's truck? Anyone know its whereabouts or fate? It's the only picture iv ever seen of that truck. Really appreciate more info if possible

No idea on its whereabouts today, but I'm pretty sure that truck was featured in either Off Road magazine or Four Wheeler in the early 70s. Definitely a Hickey build.

Found a few in my own collection of photos from back in my days shooting for various off road publications.

Randy Salmont, Baja in Barstow 1984, not slowing down for a road crossing not far from the finish line.

Most of my older stuff was lost in a flooded storage unit, I have very little left. I will look but don't expect much. Can you tell me about the color of the car, the names it had on it?

Not a picture and not too vintage but Krieger and I doing some old school class 8 racing in our early 20s

Came upon a debris field I think it was Barstow way back when and just figured it was the Krieger 8...since nobody else could have left such a long yard sale...looked ugly...loved that truck.
