I have been kicking around the idea of video tape or a card set for over ten years now. I wanted to do it to honor the pioneers of my favorite sport but never could seem to find a way to get it done. I had many preorders for a card set I was planning in the mid-ninties but it never got past the planning stage but it seemed to be the most popular format for my project.

I have decided to do at least the prototype card set on line and share it with my friends here. I'll post a new card every few days so keep checking in to see the latest one. They'll all be the same size and format so that you can print them out if you would like. Here is the "title card" submitted for your comments.



These will be mostly '50's and '60's cars from my collection built by myself, my brother and a few close friends. I hope you enjoy them and please leave me some feedback comments on whether you like them or any ideas you may have about the series. All the photos are ones I already have in the computer. If I do a "real" printed card set I will shoot all new images but that is way in the future, if ever.

Consider this an early Christmas present. Because, since there are around 100 cars, it will probably be close to then when I get the last ones posted. LOL

Sounds good to me as I always look forward to your photos. Another idea would be to make a 'slide show' for a screen saver.

mitchum, you and gators interest is subjects is very close to my own interest, so anything you guys post is welcomed by me. i love seeing well built models of REAL race cars, not these newfangled racing "machines" they have nowadays!]ApproveApproveApprove

I went to a "gentleman's club" because the sign said they had all the hottest models. I thought it was a hobby shop. Man, was I ever disappointed.

It's a great idea...if you can keep the old drivers and/or their families from taking too big a piece of your action. I'd love to collect those.

Thanks everyone for the feedback and encouragement. I'm fine tuning the layout and will try to get the first one on by the weekend. I'm doing a new cover card too. Thanks for the concern mishalah but I've got a good relationship with all the early racers and families I've met. They seem to understand that I'm in it for the same reasons they were. That being I love it and permission or money never been a problem. Besides, this is a free gift from me to everyone who loves the old cars and drivers enough to look at and save the pics.
