If you were watching the Barrett-Jackson auction last night you might have caught the unveiling of the this year's Indianapolis 500 pace car, a 2011 Chevrolet Camaro SS Convertible. Styled after the very first Camaro pace car in 1969, the modern version features Summit White paint with orange stripes and an orange leather interior. This will be the seventh time a Camaro has paced the legendary race, which is celebrating its 100th anniversary.
So why unveil the car at Barrett-Jackson? You guessed it. Chevrolet will be auctioning off the first of fifty replica pace cars on Saturday evening. The full proceeds from the auction will be donated to the David Foster Foundation, a charity that supports families with children that need organ transplants.
