    Vintage Indy 500 Color Photos?????

    Does anyone recall the web address of those amazing color photos of Indy from the 40's or 50's, I believe they were mentioned here about a year ago? IIRC, it was someone who was a photographer, and so was their father who had taken the pictures. Brilliant kodachrome (I think) of all the types of pics at the track that we usually just see in black and white. Thanks in advance!

    Could you be thinking about the fabulous stuff that "Walter Zoomie" posted a while ago that his dad took during the '50s???

    Maybe it was Zooom's, but there was a definite website, I think. The colors and resolution were ridiculous. Not firstturn, but thanks for the link. I'll kill half a day looking at that stuff.

    I can't remember the poster's name, but it was something to do with his father's pictures and the name Winterlink comes to mind. Great shots of the bricks, pits etc. That might be what you're thinking of.
