  • CA SSP lover Charles Ricks

    Does anybody know Charles or have any contact info. for him? He used to own a CHP SSP and an AF U-2 chaser SSP. He and I used to keep in regular contact and about 5 years ago he disappeared. Thanks!

      I own the 1988 CHP he first owned before he bought the 1992 CHP EVOC Mustang. Here iis where I first saw my car in his garage with his '92 Michigan SP car in 2000:



      I haven't been in contact with Charles for years but did run into him at a car show around 2012. I've got an email address for him that I'll PM to you.

        I've always thought that picture of my MSP SSP along side of your CHP SSP when Charles owned them was pretty cool. They were "neighbors" of one another many years ago .

          Thanks everybody for the help, last I spoke to him he was working on a book and I was wondering what happened to it. I may be interested in picking up the project if its not too far gone.

            Not sure about his book project but I know he did sell his photo collection a few years back.

                The entire photo collection was sold to Darryl Lindsay, one of the organizers of the Ripon show. They are in good hands. He has been slowly selling reprints of them (and many others) on eBay.

                I agree, I think the Charles' book project is stone cold dead.

                  If they went to Darryl they're safe for a while...what a shame about the book. We need a good book!

                    A couple of years back I heard a rumor that someone associated with the CHP was writing or was going to write a book but I never was able to confirm and so far have heard nothing more.
