  • Old Indy Garage Door Pic?

    Anyone have a really good picture of the old green and white indy garage doors? I have looked on the net and cant find a good one. Suppose I could make the trip over to the museum but wont have time until december...would like to get the pic before then.
    Thanks
    I'm gonna wiggle it at 'em, you cheap [email protected]@rd. Be prepared, because when I yank it out, everybody in that audience except my wife is gonna be runnin' for the exits.

    Unless someone beats me to it, I can get you one at the museum this week. I should have a pic already at home, I think.

    I think they also have an original door setup (or a re-creation) at the Panther shop down by the airport, don't they?

          Do know how to get into the archive of photos at IMS? Back in 2000 I worked the pits with Treadway racing. It was a favor from a friend Skip Faul. Anyway on Carb Day they wanted to practice pit stops so they had a backup car on pit lane and asked me to get in and keep my foot on the break while they jacked the car up and practiced changing tires. The IMS photographer took several photographs and gave me his card but I never went in to get the photos. I know how dumb huh? I have heard they keep all of these photos archived. Any help would be great. Thanks

            There are also a couple of photos on the Dryer & Reinbold site in their photos section under 2010 Driver announcements. They have some original doors in their shop.

                Thanks to everyone...in the process of slowly putting together my sports theme viewing area in the basement, the viewing room is next to the basement utility area seperated by a 3 foot door. Was looking at it this weekend and thought it might look cool to paint the door like the garage doors. My wife is the painter in the family so wanted to pass a pic along to her to get her opinion.

                  here's the link to the historic 500 photos on the IMS site (they really make it difficult to find!!) I put the page at the end of the link on the 1940s
                  http://www.indianapolismotorspeedway...s-500/page/30/
                  found this one right away- imagine there are many more in the 50s section

                        The Photo Shop is on the second floor of the Hall Of Fame Museum. Go in there, and ask to see the proof sheet books from 2000. Find out what the date of Carb Day was that year (the proof sheet pages are arranged chronologically). There will probably be 40-50 pages of thumbnail-sized photos to look through. Do you still have the photographer's card? It should tell you the photographer's number, which will help find the correct page, because the pages are arranged chronologically by Photographer Number. If no luck in proof pages, they might be slides. (They were still shooting slide film then). You might be eligible for a discount as a team member if you still have your hard card. Hope this helps!
                        So long, and thanks for all the fish!
