I've posted an add and 50 photos in the classified section of Race Desert Baja Offroad Racing Memorabilia Collection 1968-1995 NORRA HDRA SCORE

My 70 father is battling prostate cancer and I'm selling to help with his medical bills. I was working on a goal of having a small Offroad museum collection, but have sold off the trucks and buggies I had and just have this collection left. I would also like to potentially find a buyer who would to purchase it, and donate all or parts of it to the Offroad Motor Sports Hall of Fame in Jean, NV since they are a non profit and this could be a good year end tax write off for a business, I'm not in a position financially do do that but there probably are folks on here who would, please tag, share and help spread the word. This collection needs a good home to preserve, display and promote in the community.

Hello Thanks for the interest. I have received a number of emails and calls about selling pieces but at thia time im interested in selling it all as a collection, it took me 20 years to get this all together, or I'd like it to be purchased and donated to ORMHOF, or someone that can display, preserve and promote it together. If we get to the first of the year and no prospect for that happending then I may sell off pieces.

I have started a list of who is interested in what, as people contact me I will keep a record, you can message me what you are interested in and will keep you in mind.

Fun to see. I can’t help but to note that one of Walker’s bedsides is sporting a Fresh Air System sticker- Very valuable

Going to try and make an effort to sell the collection again, I had to take a few months to focus on family and work. Dropping the price to $10k and will personally deliver the collection to the buyers door in the lower 48 states US. I just posted a new add in the Classified Vintage section
