They do that to give it a closer look to the origional 69 RS grill where there were 3 slots in the headlight doors.. That is why it's called the HERITAGE GRILL

It is good to see this project is now public. Especially since I am a fan of the Heritage Grille.

Surprised they did not make it a convertible! Especially since they are going to show the pre-production convertible at the Detroit show. It would seem that if they are interested in generating some Camaro convertible interest by bringing it to a car show they would also want to use the Indy 500 to show it off in convertible form. Oft times the Indy 500 pace car is used to showcase a particular new model of note. last year, the Camaro, because that was Chevy's newest car. This year it should have been a convertible as that's the newest version of the newest car! Maybe next year?

Yep, I would buy that grill in a heartbeat. And remove the excessive striping on the second heartbeat. Logo on the headrest is nice looking imo.

I wish they didn't characterize the car with stripes traditionally suited for Mustangs.

The stripes and all graphics, including 2010 Indy 500 logo on the door, are painted on all three of the actual track pace cars. The rumour is there will be 25 Festival cars as there were this year, and the graphics may differ on those (stock factory stripes?). The GM people in attendance would not confirm if there would be any replicas or how many though.

Interesting note though. Initially they only had a '69 pace car there as well, but at the last minute brought the '82 and '93 from the basement. I mentioned because of that they had us fooled as we expected that the car would be white with orange stripes. His comment to that was "Stay tuned,,,".

From the pics the car appears lowered too. Grille is nice. Stripes not so much. They should have used a preproduction white convert with IOM stripes.

I'm not sure who is designing the pace cars for GM because starting with the 1998 Purple Vette with yellow wheels they have seemed to have lost their classic style. Pace cars since just look odd and have little inspiration to the production cars.

I think it should be Summit White with orange stripes the way they were in the '69 Pace Car.

I never wanted the extended stripes, until I saw them leave an opening for the mailslot.

Now I want
