Vintage Indy 500 Race Car Show
After the Indy Lights race ended, we wandered over to the Museum
east parking lot where long tents were set up, protecting a large
contingent of old Indy 500 cars that were owned by individuals.  

We spent an hour walking around looking at them.  

Here are some photos, mainly of cars from my favorite era - the
small rear-engined cars before wings.

We also saw Johnny Rutherford and Bobby Unser looking around too.
Don Freeland's 1956 Phillips/Offy
Mario Andretti's 1965 Brawner Hawk
1967 Bobby Unser's Eagle-Ford
Rick Muther's 1968 Gerhardt-Chevy
Rick Muther's 1974 Coyote-Foyt
Peter Revson's 1973 McLaren M16C
1934 Diamond T
Art Pollard's 1971 Scorpion-Ford
Cale Yarborough's 1971 Mongoose-Ford
David Hobb's 1974 McLaren M23
Gordon Johncock's 1966 Gerhardt-Ford
Joe Leonard's 1969 Eagle
Cardboard helmets were handed out to children today.
They also were worn by the dorks in the crowd.
Lone Star JR had a look around too.
1966 Gurney Eagle
Roberto Guerrero's 1987 March 87C
