I don't recall seeing one. Show me sweet or interesting pace cars.
For some reason I always liked the Calis, not the only GM built Calis convertible for promotional purposes. The convertibe, bodykit, and wheels made for a pretty sweet pace car.
The production version was not quite as exciting.
A few of the convertible versions actually made it to dealerships and were sold to private buyers until GM decided the car was too unsafe (yet the Cutlass version was sold for a few years) and most cars were sent back to GM were they were crushed.
This was already posted, well the production car version was so here's the actual pace car and a bit of information.
The 1984 Pontiac Fiero is among the most unique cars ever to pace the Indy 500. It is the only mid-engine car ever to pace the 500, as well as the shortest car to ever hold the honor. It is also one of very few 4-cylinder cars to pace at Indy. However, the engine in the Fiero pace car was far different from the 92-horsepower version found in the production model Fiero. This bored out 2.7L engine produced 232 horses and turned a lap at better than 136 MPH. The car also featured an air intake located above the roof to help cool the mid-engine car.
"What's that loud, boring sound you'll hear when I stop talking?"
"It's an albino humping worm!"
"Why do they call it that?"
"Because it doesn't have any pigment."
Do you enjoy old cars and long-winded stories about them? If your answer is "yes", then you might enjoy my blogpage. Try it here: http://vwlarry.blogspot.com . Leave a comment, too; I love feedback! Thanx for reading.

PPG used to have a fleet of sweet pace cars they paraded (read: drove the snot out of) out at the Trans-Am races in the mid-to-late 80's. Drool worthy mods to the engines, interiors and of course, gorgeous PPG paint jobs. :homerdrooling.jpg:
A list of mods, all cars ever owned and something cribbed from a book, song and/or movie were all just here. Sorry you missed out on my unique, snowflake-like individuality.
