    Switch to open wheelers for a minute. If someone in 1931 had predicted the Indianapolis winner of 1963, they'd probably have got it about right. But two years later they'd have been way off target as nobody would have anticipated rear engines.

      The "futuristic" Indy car that was on the cover of the 1992 program hasn't quite panned out either...

        Fascinating wheel covers.

        Did the illustrators from Speed Racer get the call to do the artwork?

          That has a bit of a BLAT Eagle vibe to it

            It seems that all motorsport artistic futurists, even knowledgeable ones, design a car for Bonneville. Future race car designs place aero above all else. The thing has to get around corners.

            Back when Larry King had an overnight radio show, Dan Gurney was his guest on the eve of the 1981 500. A caller asked what the race car of the future would look like, and he said that if he knew he would build it.
            You have the IndyCar you deserve.

              What doesn't make sense to me is that they have the wheelbase shorter on the right side of the car. I would think you'd want the left side with a shorter wheelbase to help the car pivot better through the corners.
