Kurt Strecker Viva Broncos 1969/1978

Greeting Bronco crew;
I am Kurt Strecker, and was around from the beginning, building and racing the old Bronco. At 64, I have a great amount of history, info or chat. Bill Stroppe, Parnelli, NORRA or Score beginnings, etc. I had a shop, Lakeside, Ca., and created a line of Bronco roadsters for desert runs, sand dunes, baja racing and manufactured all the fiberglass parts originally, as well as the original disc brake assemblies and power steering adaptions for Saganaw/Ford. Just thought I would offer up any comments needed. Raced the Baja, the hard way!
regards, Kurt Strecker

Welcome Kurt.

If you are looking to talk Broncos, you have found the right bunch! One thing you will find is we love old photos, so please share anything you have and build yourself a photo gallery as a new board member.

Kurt, glad to see you on here, I've read alot of cool things about your trucks and seen many neat pictures - I bet you have more to share! I own one original STroppe Racer (an early one, metal rear flares, Minor/Bayer/Loomis/Unser/Jones), and co-own another(Hall/Fricker's old racer) with a friend who is also on here. Can't wait to hear some/any stories you have! How many of your built Broncos have you located? Have any yourself?

Welcome Kurt, like everyone has said lets see some pics. Also do you know UB(uncle bob) he's a racer from your time era and lives out there by you. I don't think he is on this list but belongs to the southern california bronco list. He always has some great stories and has even sent me some old decals he had left over from his racing days. great guy. Again welcome. good to have ya.

Welcome Kurt! Glad to see you on the board. I had a chance to talk with you many years ago when you lived in Scottsdale.

Looking forward to hearing your stories and seeing your pics you might have to share with us.

There's a gentleman in your neck of the woods that I believe owns your old racing Bronco (or one of them).

Todd Z.
