Need some answers

I am in the process of negotiating a price on a replica 2010 pace car, I have been watching this car for months sitting at the dealer out in the weather next to the road covered in salt spray! talk about making me sick! Anyway this car has never been registered or sold, but has almost 8k miles on the car from god knows who that has been driving the car. The dealer is very motivated to sell and the price is not too bad but could use a little more dickering.

My questions are as follows;

On the windshield of the car ,lower right had corner if you are looking at the car from the front is a two digit number they are approx 3-4" tall and are white in color , I have seen these numbers on other pace cars and would like to know what the number stands for?

I had the dealer print out a build sheet for the car for me and did see the
Z4Z option on the car also I noticed a option of FE3 Suspension System Performance, is this a standard option or is this an added option for the Pace car? Build date on the car was 04/06/10

Dealer supplied me a carfax and it is clean and as stated never registered.

If you folks that have some additional information on these cars can provide me with some insight I would be very greatful. And I hope to be able to add the vin to this thread if I take the plunge.

Thanks
Terry

Terry,
It sounds like you've found a festival car. One of the cars that a driver or dignitary used during the Indy fesitivities week. That would account for some of the miles, the dealer may have driven it himself for awhile.

The number in the lower part of the windshield is how they identified the cars at Indy. I don't know what you've negotiated the price to, but there is $1000 dealer cash available, so make sure you ask for it.

Good luck with your purchase. It's an awesome car and unique. Post back and let us know if you bought it.

Becky

Make sure there is a license plate and temporary registration papers included as well. It is the only way to tell it is actually a festival car. The number on the plate will match the number on the windshield, and the temporary reg. papers will show the plate number and vin number comfirming it is a real festival car. Only 50 of these were used, so they are relatively rare. Finding one so far from Indy that is unregistered is a bit strange. It should also have a Parking Pass on the cnenter of the windshield who's number matches the plate and windshield as well.

Z4Z is the RPO for the Pace Car package, and every one of them will have this, Festival Car or not. The FE3 Suspension is Standard on the Pace Cars. All of them were identical as built from the factory. No options available

Here are some pics of what to look for.....

I did not get a chance to look inside the glove box or trunk yet to see if in fact that a Reg is present,I did not see the center sticker on the windshield or the tag by the number on the windshield may have been removed from the dealer but for some reason the number was left by the A post. I think it might be a "festival" car as you folks say but can not be 100% certain with out checking inside the car for more proof, Is their a way to find out for sure with out the papers you stated? was their any other record of origin? Still working on the car, I just have not had time to get back up to the dealer with work and the holidays.

Found this video don't know if you folks seen this yet?

I don't believe there was any indication other than what's
found with the car to show that is was a festival car. If
Autoguy is around, he maybe able to clarify that. You could
ask the dealer how many miles were on it when he got it.
If they say "none", then they may have been using it as a demo.

Here is the video that my salesman made for me at the Speedway before I picked up my car......


As far as I know, the only way to prove it is a Festival car is by the registration, plate and parking sticker. If none of these are present, it will be hard to prove it truly is a Festival Car down the road. To me, this is a detriment to the future value of the car.

Most of these Festival cars had in the neighborhood of 2,000 miles when they were distributed to the dealers after the race. I have seen some with as much as high 3k miles, and the dealer where I bought mine had one with only 329 miles in their shop when I picked mine up.

The car had 3,000 miles on it when it went to the dealer, I saw that on the car fax report, Also I do have the number off the windshield, PM me for it if you want. I have seen the video,very nice! if you looked at the parade video I posted I did not see a sticker on some of the cars above the number, unless it was the angle the person was shooting from?

All of those cars should have had a number. Like you said , it was probably just the angle of the camera.

PM me the car number and the dealer name where it is at. i will see what I can do to help authenticate it.
