I think there were two class 8 Fords. A 1978 and a 1980,. Is Steve Spirkoff still around? He would know what happened to them.

Yes he is. His son Jeremy is now running Spirit Racing, and Steve is primarily working on Hot Rods at the same shop.

I Talked to a Guy from New York a year a go he stumbled across one of the JD Brand Pre Runners. and repainted it the old JD Brand Paint Scheme. I believe the 1980 F 150 that Gary Paige Crashed at Riverside was Rebuilt before they closed and John Gable Bought it and later totaled it. I heard that the UMP Short Course Car was in the Midwest being used for SCCA Parking lot stuff. the Class 3 is probably hidden in storage somewhere.

Talk to Spirit racing, I believe they have one of the Ford Prerunners or know where its at. This is info from a few years ago but info none the less.
