I'm curious if anyone has any access to Images of Team McLaren's Indycar efforts during 1970-73. I absolutely love those years and finding photos, at least good descritpive ones are terribly difficult. I have an autographed Peter Revson image from Indy '73, and a few yearbooks from '74 on. But 70-73 are pretty bleak. Lots of great stuff during those years, Poles at Pocono and Ontario & Indy. Especially the images at Ontario. . . .If there ever was a place truly ahead of its time, that was it. I remember going to several Indycar, F5000 , and NASCAR events there. I didn't realize it at the time what a truly fantastic place it was. Revson, Johncock, Hulme, Rutherford, Chris Amon. And all in Fantastic McLaren orange with GULF Logos. Even the '74-'75 team cars with CARLING and ALLIED POLYMER were awesome. Love to see some links, or images if possible. Thanks much.
Try Rob Nuezel's site yesterdaysnuez. Great stuff! I bought a few from him at reasonable price. Pete Lyons has a few and then try the Indy500 site under photos and then year and driver. Artemis Images has lots of photos and then of course the Indy Museum photo shop. My M16B was at Indy community day last year and some good photos appeared various places. This year the M16C will be there, both Revson team cars.
I don't mind emailing you a few shots that I have but not other people's shots that are copyright. Aaron.
