This past weekend my wife and I celebrated 5 happy years of marriage!  As if spending a weekend away together wasn’t enough, my wife gave me this book (thus showing her immense love for her geek).

A little Cycle Karting Inspiration

Surprisingly, there is a big picture of some great vintage Indy car on every page.  I read it through last night and really enjoyed the history, like the first ever rear view mirror was used in the Indy 500.  I also enjoyed all the pictures, that I suspect it will be very helpful in determining what lines I want my build to take and how work the suspension if I feel adventurous and decide to fiddle.  I will mention there are no Bugatti’s pictured, you’ll have to pick up a book on the Grand Prix for that.

Next up, cardboard prototyping the dimensions I laid out in tape previously (thanks commenter Steve for the tip).
