Muscle Car Monday: - Indy/May #2: '67: Whhhooosshhh!! Turbine Power Fail 10 Laps From Changing History
The STP turbine cars were amazing machines, and beautifully put together - just too advanced. The car dominated and was sidelined by & a 10 cent part failure - total crap luck if you ask me. Andy Granatelli & Parnelli Jones were the real deal and deserved far more than Indy ever gave back, and good on them for never being afraid to try new things.
Love the Team Granatelli STP p.j.'s!
The turbine was a sensation, very fast, brilliant design, and a pretty car to boot. It made 1967 one of the most exciting Indy 500's ever. Too bad the cars are so LAME now. They lost me years ago, so I wallow in youtube.
It looks like Parnelli got over it!
