    I have some old pictures including the High Plains Drifter Mustang II funny car, I'll dig up the pictures and post them... I even have one showing the Bandimere tower when it was black and one story, I think the track was an outlaw track at the time.

    Is this Frank Estes in the roadster? I think it is but I'm not sure.

    Does anyone have a picture of his orange 55 or his brother Jim's blown 56 Chevy CC/Gas wagon?

    Back in the late 80's I worked at Super Shops with, I think his name was Brian Pierce, Peggy's son, from what I can remember at that time, she was still in Denver, and his father was a mechanic in Alaska. I know it was their son, because, my dad had a project 56 Vette, we were talking about cars at the shop and mentioned this Vette had a traction bar set-up under it. The next day he showed up with pictures of it back in the day painted purple, and the home made bars were visible under the rocker. The car was sold off a few years ater. Also early on in the thread 35window mentioned the Frog, it's in Littleton down the street from a friends brother. The owner told the brother that they hurt the rear axle the last time out. The car is buried under boxes and has not left the garage in years.

    Holy $hit!!! Dallas Schneider is one of my dad's best friends. They are both really into truck pulling now. Dallas still lives in Longmont and pulls a really neat alcohol injected and blown 2wd pickup called the "Good Times." I think he used to run a couple of drag cars under the same name. I always hear people reminiscing about Dallas' days as a drag racer; it's really cool to get to see a pic. These are all before my time so thank you all very much. My dad always tells me how he used to take his '63 impala SS and run it at CDR. Thanks again for posting these!

    Neat stuff. If that Vette had what looked like scoops on the fenders ahead of the doors with switches in them, thats the one. Those were for the electric door latches.

    Been doing a little research since this piqued my curiosity and found out Rick died in January of this year in Alaska and Brian lives in North Carolina. Haven't found anything on Peggy yet, though. Lisa, Brian's sister still lives somewhere around Denver.

    Dang what a hijack (sorta).

    LaunsToyShop-I've been looking for Rick and Peggy Pierce on the web and ran into your post. I own the 56 Vette you are referring to and have a Pennsylvania title from 1966 with the Pierces name on it. It sounds like your dad owned the car at some point too. Any information or pictures you have would be great. My son and I think we have found Brian Pierce in North Carlolina but have not heard back yet. It would be really great to get some pictures of the car when it was being raced. We just got done rebuilding the car red with a red interior and a 327 with 4 speed. I bought the car in 1988 from a guy in Arvada who needed some money to put in a lawn. It sounds like it wasn't to much different than when it was in your dad's garage. All in primer, no engine or transmition and a bunch of boxes. The windows still had decals including one from Rocky Mountain Dragway and a painted number 109. I think I might still also have the homemade traction bars reffered to in another post that have a small piece symbol painted on them.

    I have been wondering what happened to that one. That car used to be called "Rasputin" when Rick had it. It was maroon in color and had electric door latches, hence the switches in the vent intakes. He ran a 265 with a 4 speed in it. I know he won a trophy or two with it. He and Peggy also had Roger Guzman's MG Roadster and a '63 split window Corvette. They were our neighbors when we lived in Aurora, so that's how I know them. I don't know what ever happened to Peggy, their son Brian and their daughter Lisa.

    Somewhere, maybe at my folks place, I have a gazillion slides I took from Century 21, Bandimerer's, CDR and wherever else. Going to have to go on a mission.
