Awesome strobes. Did you have them done locally? I looked into getting the European tail lights for my C6 but no one has the wiring harness that goes with it in stock anymore.
Brian thanks! Yes I had the done locally here in Indy. The European tail lights were already in the car from the pace car conversion, however, the amber sections were not wired. Blessing in disguise when strobing them...meaning, the red portion of the tail light handled the entire functionality of the tail light. The amber part was dormant waiting for the LED strobes.
The big trick? The side marker lights. We had to go with off-brand strobe lights (to fit) and modified the side markers to make it work. The marker lights are too small to hold both street-legal lights and strobes. But with special mods, got them both in place.
When you get to Indy in May, find me (and this car) and I'll better explain what we did to make it work!

Looks like this is going to be one continuous fun time! Thanks in advance for all the hard work planning the lodging and events for all of us bringing our cars back to their "Home". This has surely made it easier for us. My 1995 Festival Pace Car #53 goes on the transport out of Spokane next Thursday, and we'll be in IN on May 19th. See you all there, and Save the Wave!!
Hot off the press! I thought I got my credentials in the mail today from Indianapolis Motor Speedway...but no, just a letter. As a Pace Car Reunion participant, there is a breakfast at the track at 9:AM. Lots of stuff going on, etc, $60 a plate. Crown the festival queen, celebrities, etc... The cool part? You get to take your pace car on a lap on the track minutes before practice begins for pole day! Its Saturday, May 21.

Well that's a pisser! Jessicca just called from the 500 Festival and said the lap around the track was cancelled. I told her so was my order for 3 breakfast tickets. She was nice about it and said that's why they were calling everybody to let them know incase that was the reason they were coming.
I think I'm just going to stay home that weekend. That's a deal breaker for me.
Anybody needing a mint condition 1995 Indy Pacecar Go-cart, look under the '95 section for details, but I would be glad to deliver it to the 100th Anniv. PCR reunion on Thurs. or Fri. on the 19th or 20th of this month. $1500.00 Firm Very fair price, these have sold for $2000 plus this past year.
Anyone know how we can get driver autographs during the weekend event? Will the tickets we were issued allow us to get close enough to the drivers? I'm looking to get Scott Dixon's signature on my 2008 Corvette's engine fuel rail cover.

You will take the tickets included in your Pace Car Reunion packet and turn them in for Bronze Badge(s). This Badge will allow you access to the garage area where you can hunt drivers down for autographs. There are official driver autograph sessions but those are not until Community Day during the following week.
