Guys for us to create this forum and to make it viable is going to take
many many folks... Wendy's comment in BRN and our continued use will make
it Viable... when folks sign on there has to be some content each day.

along that line I would like to suggest that we start a discussion on a
subject we can all have an opinion about...   

There is an opportunity to submit a Name to the nominating committee of the
International Motorsports Hall of Fame in Talladega Alabama...  There are
several Hall of Fames out there but this is the only one that is truly
international and is the only true Non specific Class of Motorsports Hall
of fame... there is coverage by Espm Tnn and Speed Vision on the induction
ceremonies each year...  Some of the Inductees include Stirling Moss, Phil
Hill, Donald Healey, Ralph Earnhardt, Lee Petty, AJ Foyt, 

The list goes on and I would be happy to copy it for all to see... I have
been involved in getting Donald Healey nominated and inducted and know the
basic procedures.
It takes time and might be a two year event... but what I am saying is I
would like your opinion about who we should nominate should we chose to do

I know who my heroes are and I know who I would nominate if I had the
let me know who yours are... and if you think this is a viable Idea...
