Roger,

Your post reminded me of a couple of photos I took a couple of years ago while walking down North Frankin Street in Watkins Glen, NY. It was taken during the annual Vintage Festival. The sidewalk in the area is dedicated to competitors at the F1 facility. Not sure if they have been posted before.

Here's a nice video of Dario driving Jimmy's Indy 500-winning car and talking about the car and driver.

Trevor,

 

Wasn't there some question as to whether or not the #82 car displayed at the Indy museum was actually Clark's race car?  Something about the Tech sticker wasn't quite right.  Saw the car several times at LOG a few years ago.  They brought the car to a downtown mall for display Friday night.  Regardless the car looks great.  Dario's drive give us rail birds a first hand look at what the drivers of the era really had to deal with.

IIRC, the Lotus in the Indy Museum is/was #83, not Clark's winning car.  #82 had been in the Ford collection ever since the pictures were taken after the race, in complete time capsule condition, and not restored to running condition until done so by CTL a couple of years ago for the Indy demo, Goodwood, etc.
