    Coke69z11 asked in 2005 if there were any 500 festival Camaro's left out there. I can say yes there is, because I own it. The picture is attached. Looking for help to authenticate it if possible.

    That's cool... I don't know anything personally about Pace cars but know someone who is fairly knowledgeable on them. He works with the Indy 500 every year and may be able to help. He's not a member here though. Also another member here '70COPO' may be able to help?

    Thanks, would like to get in contact with someone that has worked at the Indy 500. So far all my research has ended in a dead end. Have been to Indy museum and contacted the Festival office in Indy for possible vin number lists of the cars or any documentation, but I was told they don't have any from that far back. It is a #'s matching car too. Saw the Pics of the restoration, love them. Can't wait to start mine.

    Cool car with some history. While I know nothing of which you ask, I appreciate you sharing.

    that's Linda on the roof . These were festival cars ( and parade cars ) as the pace car usually was big enough for 2 or 3 passengers. Some of the parade dignitaries and drivers had other people with them . Being the actual pace car was the vette , seating was limited so they used camaros and montes for the parade
