Do any of you realize this was the first car to run at the Speedway that had INDEPENDANT suspension on it????? next time u see it or if u ever do see it check out the front suspension!!!
I have an autographed photo of Johnnie Paesons in this car in 1950. I want to know what the value is? Does any one know who I could contact? I also have seven others of other racers from the 50′s
just whatever you can get for them.Some one will pay $2 and another might pay $50. Depends on who sees you have it for sale. Try e bay. I have approx 85 signed pictures of Indianaplois 500 winners. What others do you have?
