My colleague, Lou Costabile and I had the honor and privilege of visiting legendary indy race car builder Bob Mckee at his shop, McKee Engineering, in early 2015. Bob shared some amazing memories, photos and stories from his time capsule.
We saw a historic 1952 Indy race in the final stages of restoration. We even did an interview with the current owner of that car, Herb Lederer. We covered the car's history and close-ups of its features in that video story. That interview and the one here with Bob McKee can both be seen on the My Car Story channel of YouTube.
Getting back to the Bob Mckee video... did you know that Bob built the very first "practical" electric car in the 1970's? That's how Popular Mechanics Magazine featured it on their cover in the early 70's!
Did you know that Bob also built a "Jet Powered" Indy Car in the 1960's? The "The RX" AKA Turbine Experimental was apparently so good and so fast that it was seen as having an "unfair advantage" over the other cars. As a result, it was banned from Indy Racing. Master builder McKee also built a car for actor Paul Newman. Newman became a serious racer alongside of his acting career.
Dick Smothers of Smothers Brothers fame was another Indy Car client. Bob also built race cars for two NASA Astronuats.
Bob McKee has some wonderful stories to tell. Some of them are in the video on this page. Enjoy the show and please...remember At a Glance Marketing for your Marketing Video needs.
