There are numbers all over. There is a small #45 at the lower side of the drivers window, I have the Indiana issued License plate that has the Indy 500 Logo and the number 45 on it, and the parking pass sticker on the windshield has a 45 on it as well as an Indy Logo Hologram. There is a small round brass tag on the second set of keys with a 45 stamped into it, and I have the temporary registration papers for the Civic event license plate that has 45 and the VIN number of the car on it. It will be one of the most documented cars I have ever owned. Even the window sticker had a small post it note stuck to it with 45 written on it.

Here is a picture of the parking Sticker....

Here is one showing the windshield number, Parking pass and you can see the license plate on the dash......

Most of the Festival cars have about 2000 miles. They were used by VIP's during the month of may and were used for on track and other festivities as well. Mine had 1831. I have seen a few with as many as 2300 and I also saw one with 325 miles.

It will be a dry day, fair weather, show and cruise car. Mileage will be kept to a minimum.

Whoops I should have clarified... Nothing from the factory is numbered on these cars except VIN. The Festival Cars had to be temporarily registered in Indiana and identified at the Race (they all look alike LOL)... hence the cool stickers, plate & reg papers and Key ID.

I really wish they would have numbered them like 45 of 295 or something. Seems like it would have been a very small thing to do...

I was at Carlisle this past Saturday. Not sure if you saw the car. I was parked at the tent with the other Camaro Pace Cars. There was one of every year there.

so Cool.. I actually got pictures of and talked to the guy that was driving #45. He came to Kokomo Indiana for some reason and I spotted him. He pulled into a Bob Evans and I followed him. We talked a bit and I got some pics of the car. Glad it went to someone who can appreciate what they have..

Would you be able to email or post the pics you have of the car? Those would be cool to have with the other documentation I have.

Awesome car. I noticed your in the Lehigh Valley. I am a member of the Lehigh Valley Camaro Club. I am not sure if you met anyone from the club at Carlisle or not, but if you didn't hopefully we will get to meet you at some point. I am attatching a link to our website if you want to check in and see where we will be meeting next.
