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.

They aren't Z stripes per say, as I said they were "inspired by them" (GM's words not mine) and not meant to copy them. I'm sure this won't console you, however here is a quote from the official press release on the homepage:

"The design is a modern interpretation of the original rally stripe that debuted on the 1969 Indianapolis 500 Pace Car." Once again their words not mine. I guess they don't want to stay stuck in the past.

And don't worry, in all likelyhood only the three strobe light equipped actual pace cars prepared for the track will have those stripes and they DEFINITELY won't be for sale. The GM reps wouldn't confirm it but there will most likely be 25 Festival cars produced that will have stock paint and appearance (factory stock white stripes) and vinyl decals on the doors much like they did this year that will be sold after the race. Of course there was a lot of hate for the factory "Heritage" stripes since they stopped at the end of the hood. Oh well, just can't please everyone, especially in this picky bunch.

they are closer to shelby stripes than z28 stripes
heritage means "descended from" paying homage to the 1969, or a throw back to the first muscle car era -- has NOTHING to do with a cowl hood or scoop!!! (for those of you who think you are an expert)

I guess the folks at GM interpret things differently than some here. Personally I'd like it if they did a white/blue scheme again since they've only done that once, but of course I not impartial. Like I said before that car will really stand out on the track in front of those race cars. I'm just VERY happy there will be a Camaro out front again and not a Corvette. I have a few other comments but best to keep them to myself as per forum etiquette.

You tell them pacecar! Nonetheless to what people say about the stripes it's still a Camaro and I love all Camaros! I'm happy that the it is the pacecar and it represents Camaro owners, while rubbing it in Mustang lovers faces. To all, just be glad they chose the Camaro (our car) as the Pacecar!

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
I absolutely agree with everything you said.

The 3 divisions look much less cheap than the 2 divisions over the turnsignals.

And those stripes need to be wider... as is, it actually slims down the body of Camaro, kind of defeating the whole body style. Pinstripes would help here too! I would like to see full lenght wider stripes with pins (black on SIM)

I'd also have my concerns about how the test of time will fade the grill vs. the fascia. (Hopefully neither fade)
