In my search for Cuda or Challenger, I have been reading about the handful of cars for 1971 Indy Pace Car commemorative cars sold by Indianapolis dealers after that year's race.   Do any of you have one of them, does anyone here have particular knowledge of them.   I have read a number of articles.   I assume they are all one color but have seen some with electric windows, some with air but supposedly they were not well equipped.   Many (most) are 318 2 barrel (guess that is not a muscle car). Thanks for any thoughts or experiences with them.   Best wishes

Interesting, I was always under the impression that several people were killed as a result of the crash.
