No plaques... just a cool festival plate w/ number.

Nope... just a regular 2SS/RS L99 w/ IO interior. The stripes, headrests, floormats and badging are the only differences... The big deal is only 295 replicas were built which makes them rare. The Actual Pace Cars driven in the race are not sold. This one however was one of 50 driven at the track during all the festivities by an Indy exec or someone like that.

Only the Real Pace car did... apparently they took that option off the table at the last minute...

I had mine painted on the first week I got it...

There are numbers all over. There is a small #45 at the lower side of the drivers window, I have the Indiana issued License plate that has the Indy 500 Logo and the number 45 on it, and the parking pass sticker on the windshield has a 45 on it as well as an Indy Logo Hologram. There is a small round brass tag on the second set of keys with a 45 stamped into it, and I have the temporary registration papers for the Civic event license plate that has 45 and the VIN number of the car on it. It will be one of the most documented cars I have ever owned. Even the window sticker had a small post it note stuck to it with 45 written on it.

Here is a picture of the parking Sticker....

Here is one showing the windshield number, Parking pass and you can see the license plate on the dash......

Most of the Festival cars have about 2000 miles. They were used by VIP's during the month of may and were used for on track and other festivities as well. Mine had 1831. I have seen a few with as many as 2300 and I also saw one with 325 miles.

It will be a dry day, fair weather, show and cruise car. Mileage will be kept to a minimum.

Whoops I should have clarified... Nothing from the factory is numbered on these cars except VIN. The Festival Cars had to be temporarily registered in Indiana and identified at the Race (they all look alike LOL)... hence the cool stickers, plate & reg papers and Key ID.

I really wish they would have numbered them like 45 of 295 or something. Seems like it would have been a very small thing to do...

I was at Carlisle this past Saturday. Not sure if you saw the car. I was parked at the tent with the other Camaro Pace Cars. There was one of every year there.
