Nice find. Yeah, I knew most of the driver's mentioned in the articles. I always wondered what happened to them, too. I won 1st place @ the Grand National in Monroe, MI 1972 in the B Stock Class.
Still waiting for those pics of the inside of the pop up camper Lance.
I found these on the route 66 site. If you want a better document, mine are not to clear i had to scan them. It was a conversion thing(jpg-bit). Seemed like the Attex was the machine of choice during those years. Never even heard Argo mentioned. I liked the one called triple trouble it too was different. What caught my attention was the one jumping, i thought that it might have been your ride. It was a fellow by the name of Scott Slonaker. Check with you later, hope the neck is O.K.
I posted some more camper pictures in the Gallery. Its pretty much ready to camp. It's not perfect, but even a 10 year old pop-up is rough around the edges
What year model is the camper and you may or may not know what year they stoped making them? Just curious. The one you have is the first i have ever seen, but never saw attex machines either.
Anyway, nice find. I like it and it seems to be in pretty good shape.
I replaced the front stabilizer jacks last night and tried getting some rust stains off the canvas. No luck on the rust stains. The biggest reason I wanted this camper is it will fit on my ATV trailer with my ATV.
The people in the Bigfoot are Jr. Mckay (Ray Mckay's brother) and Brian Doran (a neighbor). This photo was taken in the East Palestine city lake around 1978-1980 about 1/3 mile from the factory.
My first 6-wheeler, and still a work in progress. It's a 295 Wild Wolf
I got off a friend who put a ton of work into it. Now it's my turn to dump in buckets of time.
