Gordon Johncock's 1973 Indy 500 winning car
This is the car Gordon Johncock drove in 1973 to the first of his two Indy 500 victories (the other being 1982). I had to break another LEGO purist law and glue the two vertical fins on the rear wing ... two important decals needed to be placed there...without them the car would not have looked right.

Quoting R. H. Its nice, but you lose me at the spoiler.
I know what your saying and it was a tough call to glue two pieces of styrene on the spoiler for the vertical fins. At 1/25 scale I just couldn't find a better solution, however I am completely open to suggestions. ***Note: The last three Indy Cars I've made are a gift for an executive down at the Izod IndyCar offices. I wanted to make the, as accurately scaled as possible so I crossed my "purist" line-in-the-sand.

R.H., I, too, would've preferred more purist rules but, sadly, LEGO doesn't make pieces that would have looked quite right in making the rear spoiler possible. About the closest that Brian could have done in following completely purist rules would've been to had some of those 1x4 LEGO bricks that had studs on three sides but even then, it would've been too long by a stud for the rear spoiler and it would've ruined the perfectness of the LEGO sculpture. Anyway, good job, Brian and to TLG, if you see this out here, please make pieces that are made like this for future TLG sets! Also, R.H., you shouldn't be so harsh on Brian. He's an AMAZING artist and there's no need for that kind of jealousy over MOCs on here. Besides that, it's much nicer and better to be nice and say positive things about the MOCs of someone on here.

At first I didn't even notice that second one wasn't LEGO! Very good work on it!

Its nice, but you lose me at the spoiler. I'm okay with sticker for looks, but not when they make up the structure. The engine and front bit are very good, though.
