We have a thread for Class 6 and Class 4...so lets start one for Class 3! I know I and others have posted most of these somewhere on the site, but here they are again...

There is a ton of photos on my vintage 4x4 site at www.offroadaction.ca & I have thousands on my remote hard drive that is out for repairs. Hopefully they can recover them!

Great pictures Wes, takes me way back.
Here is a pic of my old Jeep 344. It started as a CJ7 and was a copy of Don Tobias' (402 above). After a role in '87 it was rebuilt as a Scrambler. This pic is September of 2009 while Ox and I (Fandango) are headed west over the pass of the best Wendover course ever. It runs as a 4400 now and its getting a new engine for this season.

Love the shots of the Balch Pathfinder. Where is it now?

Brad Russell, son of Class 3 icon Ray Russell sent me some photos. I posted these at http://offroadaction.ca/ray-russell-jeep-cj-7-desert-race-jeep-photos and it led to commments from his co driver Warren Baird and other people that used to race against and pit for Ray. Some pretty interesting comments there...

Gud Racing has recently purchased the Holman, Moody, Stroppe, Hearst, Sealund, KbarS race bronco and is restoring it to it’s former glory! Check out the link to see the Ford Bronco in it’s different stages, from a stock Bronco, to a mildly modified version in the late 60′s and early 70′s, followed by a lengthened body and frame. The history of this unique fiberglass body Bronco is incredible!

The class 3 photos just keep on coming! I heard years ago that the Don Tobias Jeep was built by Ray Russell and it sure looks that way to me seeing those pics. Went to the local photo bar today and preran the scanner. E Gud's avatar is from the '83 or '84 Mint. I was standing near the people in the background. Lots of people went big that day but KbarS and the El Camino went biggest. The Adams Jeep rolled there on lap 2.

Here is seven shots from the 1982 Barstow Classic. Sadly they are pretty rough.

Nice Pictures Wes! The bronco raced both class 4 and class 3. Do you think I should start a thread on it?


Here it is in the beginning.
