Jon, great stuff as usual.
As you know, I am always on the lookout for pace car information. I know that a 1967 Pontiac Firebird paced the 1967 Daytona 500 NASCAR race later in February. Do you know if they used the same 1967 Pontiac Firebird to pace the Daytona 300 Trans-Am race? I have a picture that shows a 1967 Pontiac Bonneville convertible in front of the field before the 24-Hour Continental, so unless the Firebird is out in front of the Bonneville and out of the shot I believe the Firebird didn't pace the 24 hour race. Do you have any pictoral evidence that shows whether the Firebird or the Bonneville was used to pace the Daytona 300 Trans Am race? I have not been able to locate any. Might your 1967 Daytona 300 and 24-Hour Continental program have an article about or show a picture of the Firebird? Thanks.
Included are some of the pictures I have located. The first one shows the Firebird and the second one shows the Bonneville convertible in front of the field during the pace lap of the 24-Hour Continental. They both come from gettyimages.com. The others show the Firebird as it looks today. I think it is owned by the museum in Daytona. Apparantly the car was signed by many of the drivers that participated in the races during Speedweeks 1967. I can't remember where I found these pictures on the web.
