  4. Some more vintage race cars in the infield at this year's Indy 500.

    The current owners were with most of the cars and at one time or another they had a lot of them started and running!

    THANKS! Looks like two more Two Man cars that I didn't know still exist. Number 4 Russ Snowberger Hupmobile finished 5th in 1932 and the orange Gene Haustein Hudson finished 15th in 1933.

    BZNEIL,

    Nothing new. That's just exactly the way Edmunds did it! (NOT!)

    I'm very impressed! Should be a great looking piece! Keep up the good work.

  13. JGMagoo1939, fine pix. What was the car count for only the vintage, dirt/Indy, roadsters ?? Were they allowed any track time?? If you have more pix, please post them. Thanks,

  15. Thanks.

    I have a few more. I think the total number of vintage cars was maybe 35 to 40.
    Sadly, I don't think they ever did a track-drive as a group while I was there, as they have in the past. One of my best memories was from a few years ago (I think '05) when they had all the vintage cars run maybe 8 or 10 laps together and I got to hear Bob Sutherland's beautifuly restored Novi run. There were no Novi's in the vintage group this year. ;o(

    [​IMG] Real or a new clone, I really don't care this Model T Ford FWD car is a piece of work! Does anyone have more info on it? They were an early 1930's Midget setup.
     
  18. A few more from the Indy museum. At $3 admission charge, this is the greatest BARGAIN of the whole trip!!!!

    At the very end of the day they ran the vintage cars for 5 laps & there were lots of pictures taken both amature & professinal . My first year at the Speedway was 1952 & to get to see some of the cars from that era really took me back to those wonderful May 30th mornings when we would journey to the speedway from Ohio to see the 500. Yes I was there for the 500 this year & although its much different today & surrounded in much controversy its still a great spectical.

    Rustynail,

    Yes, we will be at Oberlin this weekend! Really looking forward to it. To answer your question, I build my own engines. Really nothing to it. I have a good machinest and you can get SBC stuff just about anywhere. That particular engine is a .030 over 350 with 461 (double hump) heads, 11:1 pistons, and a steel crank. Plenty for what we do! (and pretty much what we ran in "the day")

    I think that "74" car is beautiful and very close to the type of replica car I am trying to create. Do you have any more information on it please? I love the nose, the tail, the exposed frame, and the clean lines.

    Pics from Pikes Peak International Raceway (PPIR).

    Last Saturday we (CVOR) got to run the vintage cars during the car show at PPIR. The Richard Petty Driving Experience guys had the big track, so we got to use the infield 1/4 mi. Really a pretty nice set-up. Pretty flat, but with plenty of run-off in case you mess up. We got plenty of track time, and I think everyone had a good time. Skip Roberts brought out the roadster and made some shake-down laps. Would have loved to have seen it out on the "big" track. Maybe someday!
