    Indycals has what you're looking for.

    Looks an awful lot like an Indy car to me.

    Poor guy in the Hellcat a really bad case of Cranium Rectumitis.

    Also remember that those cars were pushing the v8-60 flathead to 200. That motor started out at 156 cubic inches. Talk about horsepower per cubic inch ratio.

    Numerous Lance Sellers 1/25 resin Indy car kits at $110 a piece. Most for plastic , $100 for a sealed Hot Shot monogram midget a year ago. Most for large scale ,$50 for a Toro Rosso F1 car, 1/8 Scale off Craigslist. I really want to build the 1/8 car, just need to find space and time.

    Me , I'm the opposite of some of the guys here. Danny , with multiple engines is going by sheer brute force. Me, I'm a Speed Demon type of guy, small car , single engine. The different combinations that run the Salt sure make things interesting.

    I bought mine after waiting a long time. It's a Chris Etzel Speed Classics Stutz Blackhawk. Simple curbside resin kit, but I've always been fascinated by Frank Lockhart's jewel. When it got re-issued, it's the first thing I bought.

    I guess that sailed a long time ago wasn't the SS Lindberg.

    What I'd really like to see is that made in America decal placed on EVERY kit round 2 produces.

    I bought the dirt tires and wheels, and a Stutz Blackhawk today. The Offy is with the white metal like Chris had. These are beautiful kits, and money well spent. I missed them the first time, I won't this time. What's really neat is that they're packaged like the originals. These guys have big plans , and I hope they work out. If you're an open wheel modeler, this is a great time to be building.

    Sorry no photos. I picked up a Stutz Blackhawk Etzel kit (my holy grail) , some Etzel Halibrand dirt wheels and tires, and some old Speed Age magazines. This was at the IPMS show in Indy. American Racing miniatures is doing a great job on the Etzel stuff. I know where I'll be spending more cash.

    Do I agree with that.
  14. Racephoto1 added a post in a topic American Racing Miniatures to Re-releaseChris Etzel's Speed Classic kits   

    Fellow Etzel fans, these kits will be available at the IPMS show, in Indianapolis, at Raymond Park Middle School March 15. I can finally get my Holy Grail, Stutz Blackhawk.
  15. Racephoto1 added a post in a topic Are rally drivers the best in the world?   

    If you want an overall driver as best, Foyt or Andretti, sorry European fans. Dirt , Indy, Daytona , 24 hours of Daytona , 24 Hours of Lemans, , all real world conditions. This was AJ.

    Dirt car Champion, 3 years later Formula 1 champion, Indy, Daytona 500, 12 hours of Sebring,Pikes Peak,, real world conditions. Mario.

    Of course this is all subjective.

    The interesting part of Rally Racing is the use of spectators as guardrails. I guess they don't tear up a car as much as real guardrails.
