I agree a white with orange stripes would be more fitting... Since the 69 is where most of the styling cues are taken from.

Just be glad that they are using the Camaro again for the pace car.

I actually like it better than the Daytona pace car. To each his own they say!

From what I understand, they are only making the 2 or 3 actual pace cars. There will be no festival/replica cars made or at the track.

they wouldn't have done orange and white, they were Champ Car's colors, the IRL's far superior competition.

I guess I'm in the minority here, I like this pace car better, not as busy as the daytona car. Daytona car just had too much going on, and never have been a huge fan of Sprint yellow. But, its a Camaro so I love it anyway.

Cool Camarro SS Pace Car

Good afternoon Ladies and gentilemen,

I'll just get this out of the way first (I love Mustangs), however, the new Camarro is a nice piece that warrents a second look by anyone who is seriously concidering a pony car. I think GM did a great job on this vehicle.. I just hope the buying public pays attention this time. I didnt get to look at production numbers yet for 2008 Mustangs, but I did see how many Shelby GT500's were made (8134), and (1968) GT500KR's were built, I couldnt get totals for Mustang GT's and regular mustangs but they usually do about 130,000 a year and probably about 80,000 to 90,000 during these difficult times. The Dodge produced (6400) 426 bhp 425 lb/ft torque Challenger SRT-8's and will shoot for 30,000 to 40,000 v-6, 5.7 v-8's and SRT-8 for 2009, but I doubt they will make it...

I hope these cars all do well, when they do well it breeds competition and all breeds get improved and grow... I want to see Camarros, Mustangs and Challengers compete/out do each other.. OK... enough politics not the bad news bow-tie-boy
Your not going to want to hear this but... FORD just released official pictures and stats for the revised Shelby GT500... 540bhp 510lb/ft torque 3:55 rear gears and 6speed and just as fast as the outgoing GT500KR but with better handling (for the life of me I have no idea why theres no IRS suspension)... Check (chess!!!)

Eek!! I felt a little twinge of nausea when I saw it. I thought when a Camaro again paced Indy it would push me over the top, forcing me to buy another Camaro pace car. Not gonna happen!

Those that say it should have been white with orange stripes are right on! Somebody made a PhotoShop of such a car, and it is soooooo beautiful. I printed out the image and stuck it on the wall above my desk where I can gaze lovingly upon it all day long.

What was that Chevy they used at Last weeks Nascar? Reggie Jackson was driving..I think it was an SS Cobalt.

I was laughing at it... in comparison to the Daytona SS. (no offense I know it's a good car).

Now, if I can get behind the wheel and show Kyle Busch how a burnout REALLY is done, that would make my life complete.

Glad that I will be able to experience the sound and sight of the pace car racing around the track here in Indy. Oh yeah, this is awesome. Way to go Chevy and Tony George!

But......................I think a modern copy of the '69 pace car would have been better "retro with retro".
