We’ve featured Camaro pace cars before. A Camaro first paced the Indy 500 in 1967 and Chevy quickly learned that they could charge extra for limited edition replicas of the pace, parade and courtesy cars used for the 500 and other high profile races. In 1982, Chevrolet sold something like 6,000 commemorative replica editions. Apparently buyers could choose between the actual pace car’s graphics with the large door decal, or a commemorative decal on the C pillar. Here are both versions, shot at the 2012 Camaro Superfest.
What folks are saying:
"...I've been over to Cars In Depth on many occasions. Barring the whole 3D thing which drives me up the wall (that's a personal thing, though), I like the content, the writing, and the simple formatting. You do a great job over there, and I am impressed."
