It all started last week with a post from writer, Jeff Olson, staking claim to his picks for the Top Ten Historic Indy 500 Cars. Fans jumped in with an overwhelmingly response via Facebook, Twitter, and the IMS blog to approve, disapprove, and most importantly, share their memories of the best-looking cars to race in the Indianapolis 500.
While it became clear that picking a perfect top ten is nearly impossible, fans had fun commenting back and forth to share their picks and the IMS staff had a great time reading them! Here’s quick glance at some of the fan-submitted picks for the best-looking, historic Indy 500 cars:
Thanks for sharing your picks for the best-looking historic Indy 500 cars, keep an eye out on Facebook and Twitter in the coming months for an exciting announcement from the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for a fun, fan-driven contest where your picks and memories will decide the winner AND give you a chance at some pretty cool prizes.
In the meantime, watch for the latest article from Jeff Olson on the IMS website next week– fans of the 1982 Indy 500 will hear about A.J. Foyt’s ill-fated efforts to pull out a win. Or keep the conversation going right here, what do you think of our fan picks for the top ten historic Indy 500 cars?
