"Tak's Toy" was a German Ford Taunus. It resembled a miniature '40 Ford tudor sedan. If I remember correctly it ran C/A and would pull the front wheels with every shift. It was bright orange. Tak bulit the engine in our #29.

Happy to see these Al Beeson pics! I have a few mid-'60's Figure 8 listings where Al is listed as owner of #86, #186, & #286. But he always seemed to sport the #286 when he drove.

Here's a few more I've dug up from the "Revolution"....


(Voorhis collection) Chuck Tuffield #43 lifts two wheels in the East turn trying to catch
Jack Voorhis #32 during 1968 Englewood action.




(Van Gundy collection) Bill Van Gundy and clan from about 1972.




(Chris Martinez collection) A great color pic from 1971 of Lucky Bieckman (left) and crew.
That's Porky Swan #24 and Jim Noska in the Ivan Chamber's owned #175 in the background.




(Jay Newton collection) Jay Newton picks up this win during the mid '60's.




(Voorhis collection) Jack Voorhis thrills the crowd by rolling his Figure Eighter in front of
the grandstands.

Jerry Lee, I continue to be amazed at the number of F-8 cars/photos that you come up with. That was quite an era. Keep 'em coming!

Thanks buddy I needed this!
Chris: I am Jeff Urquhart son of "Sonny"-Leonard Urquhart, he passed away this year and I am looking to see if there is any pics of him when he was young in any of the pics you have access to? I also would love to find pics of Chucks cars painted by Sharon Mercer my aunt? the Charlie brown/Snoopy. I do remember you and the respect my father had for you. as a adult I was able to put a car on Lakeside and a short stent at Colorado national, selling my car to Tim Mercer witch he ran for a few years. I hope all Is well with you and its great finding a Sr member of Colorado's racing community as you here. Thank you for any help
