Todd Shaffer 1996

Post by CH_88 » Sun Jan 12, 2014 12:54 pm

This is probably a long shot but I figured I'd ask anyway. I'm wondering if anyone has any pictures of the car that Todd ran at the end of the 1996 season that was white with black lettering? I remember they ran that paint scheme just for the end of that season and then returned to the white/red paint scheme in 1997. I had a small photo of the car that was taken by Art Ruppert that I bought when I was a kid but I don't remember where it ever got to.

Art Ruppert passed away quite a few years ago, it'll be tough to get it from him...

Art was a friend of our family for a long time. We sort of lost touch once he quit going to the races but he was a helluva good guy. I hope his collection of photos made it into good hands because there's a ton of history there. The wall of my dads man cave is covered with photos that he took. He was very good at what he did.

there is a video/dvd , a nationally made thrills and spills type dvd, which has the black and white 88 Shaffer car from the grove that season which was either 95 or 96, I can make a copy of the dvd or I can still frame the images of the car and upload them for you

That would be awesome if you could. Thanks man. I have no idea where the photo I had got to. I'm sure its somewhere packed away but I've yet to find it. I thought that car was sweet looking.

They ran Eagle chassis in 1998. Pretty sure that was the first year Eagle was in business?
