If it sounds too fishy that $350,000 dollars is needed to put a sticker on a racecar in the Indy 500, that's because there's no car, no sticker, no Indy connection, but a couple of crooks.

[Tux500.com a Scam? Maybe the Author didn't read about it on The Indianapolis 500 Website. I don't think they put scammers on that website. - Scott]

Before you donate money to tux500.com, linux-blog.org, or lobby4linux.com, swing by and read this post. Over 30 links to evidence of repeated forum spam, linking to links they themselves placed, phoney car models, phoney thermometer pictures, and more! Comments are disabled while I attempt to wheather some kind of post attack. - sorry!
