This section of Landy's website will take a closer look at the years before his racing career and after he hung up his helmet. Landy always said that he lived his life in periods of 15 years. After serving in the Army Air Corps, Landy spend about 15 years pursuing his dream of driving a race car. When he sold the #17 he built a cottage on the bay of Green Bay and spent weekends building, fishing and hunting for the next 15 years. That was followed by a move out west to California, with horses, bowling and more building.

I can still remember the day.....1960, Dad called each of his kids into the room and asked us what he should do, continue his racing career or sell the race car and buy a cottage on the lake. That was a "no brainer" for a five year old boy..."Keep racing Dad." I don't know how my siblings voted, but I'm pretty sure my Dad had already made up his mind, or more to the point, probably already sold the midget.

Use the links on the left and enjoy your travels through time with pictures and stories about Landy's jam packed life away of racing.
