If you're still looking for a 2012 calendar, you may want to pick up the one from Automemories. It's a "1956" calendar because the dates are exactly the same as for 2012. (Our calendar repeats itself every 28 years, so two times 28 is 56 and 2012 - 56 is 1956.) Each year in this calendar series, for the month of May, they show the Indy pace car. Unfortunately the cars shown each month are artist drawings and not photos. But each month has a little write up on the car shown. And at least they got it correct that the De Soto pace car was a Fireflite and not an Adventurer (a common mistake that even the Indy 500 100th Anniversary book got wrong!) I got my Automemories calendar at my local AAA office, but some insurance companies give them out too.
