I can't believe GM continually drops the ball on the heritage grille. WTF? They've had pics of it since the Dale Jr concept at LAST year's SEMA. Back then it had 3 divisions in the turnsignal cover... which looked totally sweet... VERY throwback. I've been wanting that grille since the first pic I saw. Now they finally get around to making it and all the sudden its down to 2 divisions? I'll still buy it because I think it trounces the stock grille, but why did they have to ruin it? It makes it look cheap IMO. I think this one looks so much better:

Oh and for the record... complete fail on the stripes YET again. Not wide enough, not far enough apart, and no secondary pinstripe alongside the main stripes = garbage

Wonder how it would look with black stripes. The stripes look better on the Camaro than they do on the Mustang eventhough they are considered Mustang stripes by most. Favorite orange is Hugger, second is Inferno.

I OWN A 1969 PACECAR, SO I AM A LITTLE BIASED........
1. THE PACE CAR SHOULD BE A CONVERTIBLE!!
2. THE PACE CAR SHOULD BE WHITE WITH ORANGE STRIPES
3. THE INTERIOR SHOULD HAVE A HOUNDSTOOTH ACCENT OF SOME KIND
4. THE STRIPE ON THE DASH IS AWESOME
5. THE DOOR SHOULD BE LETTERED, NOT A LOGO (BIG FAIL HERE)
6. THE WHEELS SHOULD BE A RALLY KNOCKOFF IN 20' DIAMETER

That would be seriously cool for it to be a convertible!

Does anyone know besides body and paint, what other upgrades were done to the actual pace car?

Chevy's Rally Stripes have always been hood and trunk only. I hope they're vinyl so you can pull up all the ones that are in the wrong place!
Carroll Shelby called them skunk stripes, I guess because they were "skunk works".

But yes definately Ford born!

I am originally from Indiana, so my 1997, and now my 2010 Camaros have been badged as phantom "Indy 500 Special Edition" cars- an homage to my home state. Now I will have to gewt me the real Centennial Era Indy Decals...... I am not crazy for the grille- I think it looks very mustangish. As for the stripes, I can see how you could call them Mustang stripes when they run down onto the bumpers in front and back...

They're not Mustang stripes, and they're not Shelby stripes.... Keep guessing.

I LIKE em

It was very easy to compare the new pace car to the '69. They had a friend of mine's sitting right behind it for the unveiling. The GM people there claimed the '69 was the inspiration for the new pace car. Did they make some changes? Obvioulsy, colors reversed, Inferno Orange Metallic not Hugger Orange non-metallic, and they chose to extend the stripes. But like it or not the dual "heritage" (actually Z-28) stripes of the '69 were the inspiration for the stripes on the '10, not a direct copy. After all it is almost 2010, a new millenium, and a new car. I suppose they chose to not do the same thing over and over (like was done in '96) and apparently they thought the "Shelby" stripes as they are being called here looked good on this car. If you don't, oh well. You know what they say, "Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery." That car is going to REALLY stand out with that color and those stripes in front of those 33 race cars on race day, I believe that is what they were going for so I say job well done!

I got to say that I like this version of the Indy Pace car more than last years silver edition.

The grille really make the Camaro look much better IMO. Well, at least on the "SS" since it's a better match for the lower grille.

The stripes on the new Indy Pace Car I think go a little too long and do look like something you would more likely see adorning the Mustang instead. Too bad they didn't do it more like mine.

Leaving the stripes on the hood/cowl or going over the sides of the cowl ( standard factory stripes ) lets me know I'm driving a Camaro ... while stripes down the front like on the Indy PC make me think more of a Mustang.
