That's really cool.

When we visited Italy a few years ago we took a day to visit the Ferrari museum in Modena, and the Lamborghini museum outside of Bologna  Ferrari was definitely worth the stop, Lamborghini was not much more than a small showroom. However, Lamborghini offers factory tours but we didn't have time to take one.

Thinking the Cobra they're standing by is Aspenbubba's.

EDIT:  Upon further examination of the pic, I don't think that is his but he does have one.

I'm just a looker. That pic was at the R & M auction at the Arizona Biltmore designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. The car in the background is a Cobra but not mine.

53 years ago, I was in the grandstands with my father for the Indy 500...

4 years ago, I was able to drive a stock car on the IMS with the Richard Petty Driving Experience...my 12th speedway...and the last weekend RPDE would operate before merging with a far inferior program...



I have since retired from the sport...  ;)

Helio wins his 4th 500 in a very good race...

Roger Penske, who let him go 3 years ago, owns an Indy team, the Indy Series AND the Speedway.  Some humble pie to be eaten, methinks...

Only 135-ish...

The NASCAR cup cars generally go 180-ish at Indy, but they had set up cone gates to make you scrub off speed in the flat corners rather than put it into the fence.  I was disappointed as I had gotten up to 168 on the high banks at Daytona and expected similar speeds, but no such luck...
