Lotus at Indy

Having been a Lotus owner I have to have a special day just for the Lotus of Indy. I am going to start with the type 38 that won. To see a fantastic painting of the car go to Car-A-Day.
Nose

Goodwood stickers.
I just love the bundle of snakes.
This is the type 29 that Jimmy Clark got 2nd in 63.
Very simple but effective.
The office.
The type 56, the turbine powered car. This was Graham Hill's. He qualified 2nd and was running 4th when it broke a suspension member. Certainly a different design for Lotus and a car I still haven't made up my mind if I think it looks good or not.

Thanks for stopping by. Yes I have heard it. It's more of a whoooosh. I will be posting more pictures but tomorrow is Carburation day, what ever a carburator is. There is also a 100 mile race for the junior series. Nothing like spending an uncrowded day at the track.
