Some pictures that I took of Pro Stockers back in the '70s and '80s along
with a clip from the Diamond P video "Decade Of Thrills" Note... the last
photo, at 6:43, before the video clip is one that I took from the
grandstands at the '83 US Nationals showing Lee Shepherd in the lead at
that point. But as the video shows, Bob Glidden drove around him to take
the title. Great Racin'!!

Bill Bagshaw's NHRA Pro Stock "Red Light Bandit" 1970 Hemi Challenger
This 1970 Hemi Challenger was owned and raced by Bill Bagshaw in NHRA Pro
Stock drag racing from 1970 to 1973. The car made its debut in 1970 at the
NHRA U.S. Nationals, and won "Best Engineered" at the event. It was
featured in the November 1970 issue of Hot Rod magazine. John Gastman of
Roanoke Motors Chrysler/Dodge in Roanoke, IL owns the Red Light Bandit. He
purchased it from a private owner as part of a package deal back in 1994.
In January, 2011, Gastman called on Bucky Hess, and his son Travis Hess, at
Bucky's Ltd in Martinsburg, WV to restore this historic race car. Bill
Bagshaw, the original owner and racer, provided an enormous amount of
information to Gastman and Bucky during the restoration of the Challenger.
Bagshaw became part of the restoration team when he agreed to rebuild the
Red Light Bandit's 426 Hemi motor at Ron Shaver's Racing Engines in
Torrance, CA. Using pictures from magazine articles and build pics, Bucky's
fabricator, Cole McAllister, expertly returned the body to 1970 condition.
The talented artist Nelson Grimes re-created the lettering to "as raced"
appearance, using both gold leaf and white gold leaf materials. The final
product is stunning.
