Valero XT Factory Test Footage
Contributed by Sam Baker, this video was sent to Ron Baker by Howard Pipkorn. It is footage of one of the very first production Valero YTs (initially called a Valero XT in the video). May 27, 1985.
 
  Family J Class Footage (later became J Production) - Venturas
Another video from Sam Baker. Circa 1974 - 1975. Probably Joliet, IL. Several HydroStream Venturas, an Allison and a Tunnel (Possibly a Kitson). Ron Baker is in the Black Ventura #49. Larry Guimond is in the Blue Ventura.

Ron Pratt's V-King with Merc Bridgeport
One of my all time favorite clips: a rearview shot by a passenger in Alaskan Ron Pratt's Bridgeport EFI powered V-King at 100 MPH. This very engine was eventually sold by Ron to me and run on my V-King for several years. What a sweet motor!
