Bobby Unser's car. I remember seeing the Eagles run at Indy in the early 70s. They ran with the old Offenhauser ("Offy") engine when it still could compete against the Ford Cosworth. It was a great time. There was such a great variety of cars and engines and driver personalities. Nice work. Interesting choice to leave out the tires and spoilers.

Thanks Mark. First time out with my new markers.
I can remember seeing Wide World of Sports on the Saturday for pole qualify in 1972 and it was unbelievable. There was not the available information then like there is now. Every one in 1972 qualified faster than the pole was the year before. Bobby Unser had one lap that was almost 200mph. The fastest anyone went the year before was a high 179mph.
Take care.

Yeah, '72 was the first year they allowed the bolt-on rear wing. It increased the down force dramatically on the rear wheels. They were able to go much faster in the turns.
