Yep Vogue Tyres. They have been around for almost a century. Expensive high end tyres. They invented the true whitewall around 1919. When I worked in a Pontiac dealership in the 70's Vogue Tyres were a option on the Gran Prix and Big cars. As I remember it added about $800 to the price tag. What was interesting is the way they were mounted. They didn't remove the wheel from the car. They had a vertical bead breaker that grabbed the origional tire and worked the tires on and off with tire spoons.
Their target today is Caddy's and Mercedes.

Go for it Dinger!!

You kinda gave yourself away in the C'mon man thread about the curb feelers.

This guy won the first [B]powered[B]race at Indy, before it was paved with brick. He had a speed/time record that stood for 40 years, N.Y to L.A.

Who is he and where is he buried.

It might be Ray Harroun. I know that he raced at Indy before the first 500 and he participated in long distance races. He also won the first 500. His car sit on a pedestal in the Indy museum.

Maybe.

Nope. If I gave too many more clues it would just be too easy.

Yeah but the buried part of it makes you research it. I'm trying not to.

Ok I did . I'll pass on it.
Makes sense who it was. Did you know he started out in Vaudeville before he began racing?

YES. he's buried where probably half of Americas automotive pioneers are buried. I was just reading about him in my fave Mag, Hemmings Classic Cars.

There was a article on him a few months ago in The Old Motor site. Very informative, very interesting. If you haven't been there do so. Great stuff!

A very cool site, BB, thanks! I love the history of our hobby.

One more clue and if you can't get it after this. you'll never get it. There was a very famous race named after this guy. There was a movie about the race.
