Content Description: 

Tom Sneva was the fastest qualifier for the 1984 Indianapolis 500 in this car. It went out of the race with a broken rear suspension on lap 168 while running in second place. The car is representative of design trends that began in the 1970s and are still seen at Indianapolis today. Front and rear wings generate downforce to help the car hold the road. The radiators are mounted in pods on each side of the car. The bodywork under the pods is carefully shaped to create a lower pressure area that further sucks the car down to the track. The chassis is a monocoque that uses both aluminum and magnesium. Today's Indy cars still have wings and side pods but the monocoque chassis are now made from carbon fiber. Engine: Ford/Cosworth V8, turbocharged, double overhead cam, 159 cu. in., 740 hp
