  1. Would you know if this is the actual pace car Packard? thanks
  2. A number of Beretta converts were made and 50 were earmarked for Indy. tests showed they were very unsafe, but the press releases were already out. Three berettas were retained as pace Cars with substantial mods, the rest were either donated to technical schools or scrapped. Beretta coupes were still used as part of the track program, in both teal or yellow, along with the mentioned yellow or teal Corvettes. Little known is the fact there were also white 1991 Camaro converts also used at the track, with the same pink graphics.
  3. And the 1978 Pace car festival lists is one I really would like to have. The festival cars awarded to the 500 Festival Associate Directors and track personnel were Monte Carlos. I believe only 4 of the special Vettes were at the track.
  4. I am researching the various years Indy 500 Pace Cars. Since the 500 festival Association was formed in 1958 a number of cars were delivered to Indy for the 500 festival Directors and track officials to use during the month of May. Sometimes they were replicas of the actual Pace Cars, while other years a different model was used. A sheet was generated with the VINs, car color, model type, and who was assigned the car. I have a number of these sheets, the oldest being 1970 but I am sure there were older ones. Does anyone have a copy of these sheets? I am finding there is so much misinformation

  9. I am researching the various years indy 500 Pace cars and just completed 1947. I set up a facebook group as a means to share the info but also hoping any of my errors would be corrected, people in photos could be identified, and anything not here would be added. Thanks for any help. here is the link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/868761536958420/
  10. Inspired? I can't believe what some of you have completed!
  11. Are there many before and after pictures of some of the worst basketcases that have been restored? Could use some inspiration.
  12. About five years ago I sold a 91 Polo Green to David Shipman of Weymouth, MA. He asked about my Mass plate "Reatta". Once the 90 convert is picked up mid June I do not believe I will have another Reatta and will be turning this plate in. Is David here? If not, the plate will be available.
  13. Someone asked on this Cadillac Allante Lovers Facebook group if there were any for sale-yes, a lot https://www.facebook.com/groups/67146646927/10157945906061928/?comment_id=10157955089811928&notif_id=1590002579122108&notif_t=group_comment_reply
  14. Lots of changes in mid 90, most notably the front top has electric motors and the seat controls were improved immensely. The center stack also changed and the cassette is different and a CD added. The top became optional in mid 90 but not hard to find and the early ones can be used with not much modification. 93 tops are very hard to find but the earlier ones can also be used-but the elimination of the vent window requires new weatherstripping.
