Wow, eagle eyes to pick out the hidden Challenger but the lettering helps.

I agree, it blends in so well with the background. Good job Scott!

Thanks guys.  I missed it the first time I saw the photo but spotted it the second time I ran across it.

Here is an image of the 1967 Ford Galaxy convertible used as the pace car for the Double 300 Trans Am races held at Marlboro Speedway.  The image was taken from the start of the under two liter event held on August 12, 1967.  There were no images of the pace car in front of the over two liter field in the film because the film maker was actually inside the pace car filming the start of that particular race held on August 13, 1967.

The second image shows a red 1967 Camaro convertible with some type of sign attached to the passenger door.  This sign demonstrates that it was used at the track in some type of official capacity.  Perhaps it was one of the cars used to chauffeur the drivers around the track during the pre-race festivities.

The images were taken from 8mm color film footage of the events posted recently on Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t4ij9eaomwE

Here is a cool color photo showing the cream 1969 Ford Mustang convertible pace car out ahead of a group of other Mustangs on pit lane just before they went around the track during the pre-race festivities for the Trans Am event held at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, in Lexington, Ohio on June 8, 1969.  Notice the parachutist coming down in the background.

Found another picture with the 1967 Ford Galaxy convertible used as the pace car during the second of the Double 300 Trans Am races held at Marlboro Speedway on August 13, 1967.  You can see it just above the checkered flag and to the left of the red 1967 Camaro RS convertible with the sign on its passenger door.

Here are two more images of the red 1967 Camaro RS convertible that was used in some official capacity at the Double 300 Trans Am races held at Marlboro Speedway on August 12/13, 1967.  Notice that there is some type of sticker on the drivers side front fender just behind the nose stripe.
