Here are some pix from LA and the GNRS roadster show. The first models are by Clyde Morgan. The wire wheels are amazing, have no idea how he does it. Dig the vulture on the coupe. They are all cast in pieces and each car and base weighs about 75lbs.
Here is his web site ... http://clyderossmorgan.com/index.html
The second set of Indy race car models are also 1/8th and they were in display cases at the Peterson museum.
The #98 was done by John Snowberger http://www.johnsnowberger.com/
The #14 was done by Ron Fournier (super famous metal worker). http://www.fournierenterprises.com/About%20FENT.html
The #3 was done by Don Oreck (I don't think this is the vacuum cleaner guy) but I can't find any more info on him.
The last pic is of Gary Nichols standing by the grand trophy. He sent me these pics.
