    New Indianapolis 500 History Website

    Hello everyone.

    I wanted to let TF members know about the website I've been working on, which is finally ready to be seen.

    http://www.wibc.com/500history.aspx

    This is our new online History of the Indianapolis 500 webpage. It's still a bit of a work in progress, but for now, it will have audio and photos from the greatest sporting event in the world.

    If you use the scroll bar for "Best Of Talk Of Gasoline Alley" you will get the new online vault of the great Donald Davidson's answers on drivers, team owners, and more.

    Eventually it will have around 10 years worth of answers in a permanent, online archive.

    If you use the scroll bar for "Indianapolis 500 Memories" you will get highlights from the last 60 plus years, plus other special items.

    If you use the scroll bar for "Indianapolis 500 Interviews" you will get comments from drivers, team owners, and 500 legends on a variety of topics.

    This has been a bit of a labor of love for me, and I have hundreds of hours to go before I'd consider it "done" but for now enjoy.

    Please feel free to leave comments here or send me a PM, because I'd like to know what you'd like to see on the site to make it better.

    Please keep the comments coming, is there anything else people want to see?

    Would the expanded photo section be valuable?
    Of course any photos would be great, you know how I really like the FE cars.

    For me the "golden years" were the 60's, and to hear the interviews makes me spend WAAAAY to much time on the pc.

    You've hit a home run here my friend.
