Like many I've figured that the new Stingray will be given pace car honors. But you know the day after the Z/28 unveil I was thinking what a great coming-out party pacing the Indy 500 would be for it, it is built for the race track right?

Nice idea Mike. Do the Stingray next year when you can have matching festival convs.

I strongly regret getting the Dusk wheels for that reason.
If I had been paying attention instead of being so enamoured with the looks I would have had Chevy yank the 21s and replace with a similar looking 20 or 22.
they will be going in the garage and replaced with 20s soon enough.
I dig the wheels! The paint and wheels to me are bomb! I want #1 but the $7K package is to much!

As one of the owners that ordered my car as soon as I could let me say if you don't have anything nice to say don't say anything at all. Lots more people love the color than hate it. I can tell you the number of times I have heard that they wish they would do that color on any Camaro. 2nd the price. 7k is not that bad for what you get. RS package, 21" wheels, ZL1 ground effects, stripe package, rear spoiler, grill, is all about 7k if you were to buy them that doesn't count the Gill stripes, painted engine cover, custom floor mats, black trim on dash and doors, Hot Wheel logos on fenders grill and deck lid, Hot Wheels door sills, Seats embroidered, red stitching on the seats and dash. And yes I'm just a big kid collecting Hot Wheels big and little. Keep up the good work Chevrolet!!!!!!!!

SO don't they have to sell all of them as used after they drive them around Indy?

a lot of people collect the festival cars, many are spoken for already. Doesn't matter if they are used or not, they will sell for what someone is willing to pay. This car did not sit on a lot somewhere, this car was used at the Indy 500, race watched around the world. Being 1 of 50 cars in this case, makes it more rare and collectable.

If they aren't registered then No.

The Festival Plates on them are valid through 5/31 only, so it is a sort of "temporary" registration for IMS purposes. I have seen the paperwork for it, but I forget what it is called. But GM still holds ownership & title to the cars.

I thought I read when researching mine that Festival Cars are sold to dealers at a lower invoice price. But that won't stop the dealer from saying they are "rare" and jacking the price up over MSRP to those that pay it...

I think they are classified as Program Cars. They can be sold as new up to a couple thousand miles I think, then they have to be sold as used cars.
