Indy 500, 2014-- Part 11: Camaro Pace Car

The Chevrolet Camaro Pace Car for the Indy was driven by 3-time Indy 500 winner Dario Franchitti.  Camaros have often been the pace cars, starting with the 1967 first-year model, then the second generation 1969 one.  Other years the Camaro received the honor were 1982 (same generation as my 1985 Firebird), 1993, 2009, 2011 and this year.

The 2014 Camaro Pace Car is a 7.0 litre V-* getting 505 hp.

Of course, i am a big fan of Camaros, now that they don't make Firebirds anymore (nor Pontiacs at all for that matter).  As a matter of fact, my next new car is likely to be a Camaro.  I'm a big fan.
