Indy Cars of the 1950s

Step into Gasoline Alley during one of the most evocative and exciting eras in the history of the great Speedway?before those pesky rear-engined bugs took over.

From his own photos of the 1956 Indy 500 and 1958 Monza 500, as well as other material in his collection, Karl Ludvigsen presents a panorama of the fabulous Indy racing cars of the 1950s. These were the years of the Kurtis Roadsters, the lay-downs, the first Watsons, the formidable Novis, the V-12 Ferrari, the Bardahl-Ferrari, the Blue Crowns and the invincible Offys. Stunningly sharp photography shows the cars, their engines and their designs in amazing detail.
