He turned one into a prerunner, put a windshield on it. He sold the Tundra prerunners that he got from the T-Force team, one to BJ, the other to Toby Price I believe.

Pflueger's Porter TT- was recently bought at ran at Laughlin a few weeks ago.
Jesse James TT Porter - didn't John Marking buy it?
Vildosola Geiser TT (chassis #2 I believe) is used for doing shows/exhibitions.
Rick Johnson TT- someone ran it at the Baja 500. 72L was the number. Rob Reinertson was DoR.
T-Force SPD- Cantina Racing has one.


Where is Josh Baldwin's Geiser at? Still have it? Sell it?

Where is the old Dave Ashley Duralast single seat TT? That one was always a personal favorite of mine.

What about the Hunter class 10 cars that were built in house by them? They were very high end exotic builds that only raced a couple of times before they pulled out of racing completely.

Rob Reinertson owns the old Rick Johnson TT, we are currently freshening up the engine for the thousand. Crankshaft has Herbst 2004 engraved on it. Rob also owns Big Mac.

Does anyone know what happened to the original #66 & #68 Jason & Josh Baldwin TT’s with cantilever rear suspension? I heard Jim Baldwin had them both prepped & stored away somewhere after Jason’s death, but that was many, many years ago. I assume someone knows about them?

66 is still in Wisconsin, not complete, not restored. 68 was junked in Jim’s Laughlin crash, 86 is complete, not restored, resting in Az. The #86 Baldwin Gieser was sold, raced as #27 Klim truck in BIT, sold now RST owned.

We’re they sold? Who in Wisconsin has it? Who has the one in AZ? Would be great to see one of those trucks restored right down to paint job and raced at NORRA, or just put on display for all to see. The suspension on them was amazing to look at. The details and holes punched & dimpled was incredible.
