1987 GTA Pace Cars

I saw that Frankie posted a photo of a GTA Pace Car a year or so back.
So, I thought I would post a few photos of them.
Here, is the 1987 Daytona Pontiac Trans Am GTA Pace Car.

This one, is the 1987 Talladega Pontiac Trans Am GTA Pace Car.

The Daytona car is Red, and it looks like the Talladega is Flame Red,
Pontiac gave cars to NASCAR for Pacing duties throughout the years.

Hope you like them!

George

Re: 1987 GTA Pace Cars

SWEET! George, what book/magazine are those in?

I wonder if that is the same Talladega car that got hijacked for a quick lap or two by a fan? That might have been the Southern 500....

Re: 1987 GTA Pace Cars

Frankie,
I bought a box of NASCAR programs awhile ago, and going thru them, I got hooked!
I buy them every so often on ebay now.
They got great ads at times in them.
Glad you like them!

George

I always look for those since my car has them. I would love to have one of those pace cars to go next to my car. Tandy
