I will be writing a few articles on off road racing cars in the next few months. My goal is to have one in depth article a month about them on my website. The first one will be on the AMC Ramblers, which I am researching now.

If you have any photos or stories about the Class 6 cars, feel free to post up!

it would be really cool if there was a V6 buggy class for those people who think
class 1'a have too much power and class 10's have not enough power, like a transition class

(at least i think that would be cool)

200: Thanks, I appreciate any help I can get!

PLS: PM to Jim already sent! :)

Nelson & Rick: The website is www.offroadaction.ca It covers all aspects of vintage 4x4's. A lot of times I will do a quick blurb about a link I found but I am trying to write more complete articles. I have some photos of the Novas, Coats Camaro, Spy Ranchero, Shwaffor (sp?) Chevy's, the Saab, the pacer, etc. What I would eventually like to do is have a seperate article with photos and information about each one. That is where the incredible amount of knowledge that the RDC membership has comes into play...

Here are a few more photos. Some are from the other old photos thread...sorry for any repeats from there.

Here is a good question for you. Rod Hall raced Class 6 once...what race, what car, and how did he finish?

Also, have a close look at the Saab photos. They ran the exhaust up above the passengers side door. This was apparently because of ground clearance issues.

I will post some of my old pics tomorrow, I have tons that are on 35mm slides and have no idea how to get those to digital.

Some of the newer printer/scanners come with a template that allows you to scan slides. If not you can take them to like Wal-Mart or Walgreens, they can usually scan and print and/or copy them to a CD.

Looking forward to reading about all of the Class 6 cars! Drop me a message if you think I can help with anything. :)


Here are more pictures of the Jodan Brother's Class 6 El Camino.

Thanks to a longtime family friend for posting these in the
CatchYourEye Motorsports Garage.


I also have more pictures on my HubGarage page.

We also ran the Class 6 Datsun 710... I still need to locate some pictures of it.

I do not think it is McQueen. Erik Carlsson (on the right) was a world famous SAAB factory rally driver from Sweden. They raced the Saab in 69 & 70, placing 3rd and 5th respectivly. I am not sure what year this photo is from. He won or placed in the top 3 at pretty much every major rally in Europe & Africa in the 50's & 60's.

TRMKARS, thanks for the photos! I was hoping that you would see this post. You can bet that I will contact you for some more information!
