The web site about the 1973 Indianapolis (Indy) 500 Mile race!
In 1978 I read an article in an car magazine covering a 1973 Cadillac Eldorado convertible - I immediately fell for this car! Long sweeping lines and fantastic design and I knew that I wanted one from that moment. Little did I know it would take me over 20 years until I got mine.
But through the years I learned that Cadillac Eldorado was chosen as pace car for the 1973 Indianapolis 500 MIle Race - the Indy 500, the worlds largest singe sport event! And that Cadillac made a limited series of replicas/copies of the pace car - the car that was used during the start of the race and also to slow down the race cars when there was an accident out on the track.
I started gather information from the 1973 race which was one of the most "dark" of all the Indy 500's - lot's of accidents including a couple of fatal one's. This is the web site I have put together to describe som of the race but mostly to try to keep track of the 566 pace car replica's that were built.
