Default Jim Beckers Anglia - The Kidd

Here are 2 shots taken at Denvers Lakeside Speedway of Steve Beckers 48? Anglia. This car appeared at countless auto shows and I imagine that it was at the drags a lot too. I don't know cus I was always a toilet bowl racer....

The two things I do know about this car is that it was a real eye catcher and was lettered by Denvers legendary Ron Avers. I remember the CARC (Colorado Automobile Racing Club) bringing in a drag car every now and then during trophy presentations and after the track was cleared the guest drag car would be allowed to do a burnout in front of the grandstands. Fun to watch for the 3 seconds.....but otherwise....YAWN!!

Thanks to Mark "Kappy" Kaplan for the use of these photos.

Louie Allison says the owners name was Jim....Ron Avers says it was Steve....so you pick.
