Tom Gerdes' ATV RACING PHOTOS "1980 NATVA Summernationals outside of Ashtabula OH. They are taken on the pit side, so the visibility of the whole track wasn't able to be taken. I'm in the buggy coming into the pileup at the berm just visible to the right of the cone. (I think). "

The photos show the Argo 8x8 AATV with a 10m telescopic mast at a trial location on a beach near Heysham nuclear power station in north west England". Photo #1, #2and #3.

Dan Grover shares
a nice story with all of us:
I only have
these 8x10 photos left. A buddy of mine at the time had a nice camera
and he was an amature photographer. We wanted to get the classic mud
shots. (PHOTO 1) So on
a cold dismal rainy winters day in New Jersey my buddy and I set out
on our task. We had to talk my mom into driving us to get gas. At the
gas station we told the attendent our intentions, as he stood there
shivering in the rain; He looked at us and Said, "Simple Shits." Its
still a standing joke today with my buddy Chris. So we set out to do
a photo shoot. We took about 10 pictures but unfortunately I only have
3 left. The bummer, that is missing is one that showed me doing donuts
where you could see mud clumps hanging on the power lines, thrown up
from the wheels. In fact before we did the shoot in weather that wasnt
fit for a duck. We switched the tires for maximum mud throwing capabilities.
The good one that I have is a classic full speed into giant mud puddle
shot. Can't even see me, the water shoots clear out of the frame. (PHOTO
2) Tricky shot to set up because my buddy had to literally jump
out the way and it was lucky the puddle slowed me down! I sold the 400
Chief when I was seventeen to buy a car. I think it was in 1979 or 80.
It was such a part of my life and I think about it all the time. Unfortunately
for me, now my strength has declined to the point were I dont think
I could drive like I used to. If I was rich though: I would track one
down and restore it. I always tell people if you knew me as a little
kid I always had either a fishing pole or a wrench (to fix the ATV of
course) in my hand. I looked at all the articles on ROUTE6x6 and I never
saw Charlie Baldwins name mentioned. I am not positive but I think he
was a two time Grand National Champ, I not sure of the years. He had
a dealership, Baldwins Tractor and ATV center in Pennington New Jersey.
He won with his Gittin Gotcha. I know he put a JLO 760 with an instant
reversing transmission into it. Made wheelie poppin real easy".
Cool Story Dan, Thanks a lot!

Corky Story has a really nice PHOTO of their HUSTLER is a snow scene. "We got ~5" of snow here in NC & were able to really test out our Hustler right! It has been restored (inside & ouKohler mot) - an 18hp tor - and we call it "Toad". Corky Story Granite Falls, NC"
Think you have snow????? Hank Protzel "Nice site. Anyway, I have an "85" Argo 8x8. I have made a nice covered shell for it to help keep the snow out. As you may have figured out I use this in the snow a lot. 12-15 ft normally. I have tracks for it. It works great in the snow. " PHOTO 1, PHOTO 2, PHOTO 3, PHOTO 4. Anyone have a shovel???
Harry John Dusseau III sends us more cool photos of the Humphrey NY ride: FIRST PHOTO a red MAXII with tracks, SECOND PHOTO the red MAX V taht was converted to run on propane, THIRD PHOTO a blue plastic bodied MAXII and the LAST PHOTO: Swampy's MAX V. Harry wrote "last picture is of a guy's really sharp custom-made rollcage for his MAX IV. His first name, I believe, was Paul, but everyone called him "Swampy." He rode with my cousin and myself, along with two other MAXes on the all-day ride on Sunday. The rollcage was very nicely done. Heavy steel pipe, custom bent and welded. HUGE cargo rack over engine. All painted to match the upper body. He put an 18" section of heavy-guage mesh wire between the front bars to keep branches and other debris out of his face. A very nice vehicle, and a very nice man. He ran three tires off the bead during the Night Ride the evening before, and the folks in his "group" helped him switch his tires around, (with one donation), so he'd have solid tires on all four corners in order to make it back to camp!" Thanks Harry!
Tim O'keefe sends in these cool PHOTOS of Pete's ride on NJ on April 1st weekend!

Here are some photos to post on the site if you'd like. Sent in from Brad Dunn: I took them this past weekend. The area is about 5 miles from my house in Monrovia Maryland, That's about 35 miles North East of Washington D.C. Here's a short description of each. Picture of Max in swamp area next to a pond which I found by riding some trails just off the creek. Never would have found this on foot.. Max and very swampy area leading to the pond. Took photo and then drove through this area, (no problem). It's the first time I've ever been stuck and believe me I've been looking for places to get stuck. And stopped to clean up my boots and come-a-long after getting unstuck. PHOTO SET thanks Brad!

guys! Well after looking over your site and seeing all these wonderful
machines I decided to send you some pictures of my adventure one cold
fall day. My son and I where out on my trap line when we decided to
cross the beaver pond because we did not feel like walking around as
usual, because there no trail around this pond the only way is to cross
water or walk on the beaver dam. Well all went until we tried to get
out of the water, the dam was to steep and the back end of the argo
went under water and did not have the power to pull itself out of the
pond. so it sank, luckly I had a chain saw and was able to cut a log
very quickly to prop up the front so no water would get in the motor.
To get it out was another story, we had to get friends and cut a new
trail in form another direction to get to the pond, then we tried pulling
it out with a winch on a Polaris 6X6 and it wasn't strong enough, so
we had to get all six guys riding on the Polaris for enough tracktion
and barely pull it out. once we emptied the water "very Cold Water"
we started it again and drove it back to the trailer. Some trip. That
was a 6 wheeled argo and now I own an older 8 wheel argo with a 440
Kohler in it, a much better machine. Your web site is excelent, and
fun to look at, I wish I was there playing in the mud to. Up in these
part we mostly have muskeg bog, and these machine are very handy to
have. Cochrane, Notheastern Ontario Canada 4 miles north of the 49th
