Curbside Question: When’s The Last Time You Saw A Pace Car On The Road?



We’ve seen a lot of Pace Car history here on CC, thanks to JPCavanaugh’s excellent series. He has already done the 1975-79 period (click here if you missed it), but just a week ago I saw this 1978 Corvette Pace Car replica as I was leaving the office. It got me to thinking, how many 500 replicas are actually driven, and not just stored in gigantic Ziploc bags?

So, when’s the last time you have seen an Indy 500 Pace Car, replica or otherwise, in traffic? Bonus CC points (no cash value) for the most unusual sightings. And yes, I know they made a ton of ’78 replicas…
