One Pretty Piece of Indy History

Posted by: Caitlyn Stoeckley

The anticipation had been building all morning, but it may have reached its peak when I was handed earplugs as I arrived at Chevrolet's press conference at the Auto Show. The daughter of a die-hard Indy race fan, I found myself becoming just as excited as my dad is each year when he arrives at the Brickyard. The limited edition Camaro SS Convertible rolled onto the stage with the star factor of Dario Franchitti moments after his big Indy victory.

The convertible, modeled after the 1969 Indy Pace Car, looked daring and chic with its white exterior and orange racing stripes. My father, who has been attending the race loyally since 1975, will undoubtedly recognize the classic pace car model. With just 500 of these limited edition convertibles being manufactured this spring for the public, I’m sure he's getting in line as I type. I just can't wait to impress dear old dad with the news that I saw this exclusive piece of Chevrolet and Indy Car history before him!
