I saw that. Sent an email asking what documentation he has that shows it was used at the track. The decals do not match the known Festival Cars, either. The windshield banner is not the right font, the flags over winged wheels on the quarter are too large and the door graphics are missing the official pace car text and the banner with the race date on it, on top of being the wrong colors. Bill, were you that race? Did they actually use 40 some couples at the track?

I wasn't there but have never heard of coupes. I won't say there weren't any but after 20 years you'd think we would have seen some before this if they did exist. This car was built in September so it definitely wasn't there!

I knew the Festival convertibles were some of first cars built in the 1997 production run, so I always thought if coupes were used, their VINs would have been in the same range. The only record of car VINs I've seen is from the Camaro Enthusiast Magazine article and it makes no reference to any coupes used. A lot of red flags with this ad. The car is a hardtop, so why would the track put a driver inside this car for introductions when they had 50 convertibles? The auction is also a private listing. These kind of auctions make me skeptical why the seller doesn't want the bidders to know who their bidding against. So far, the seller has not replied to my questions about documentation and driver verification. Probably won't because he has none.

I was surfing around tonight and came across this ad for a 1997 Festival Car. When I read the description it really sounded familiar. I compared this to the ad Bill posted above and found they're the same. The Ebay guy copied and pasted his description from the Old Ride site ad. He knows all to well that his car is not what he says it is. Doesn't being truthful matter to any more.

Found this ad while surfing today. Same seller as before. The bid got up to $4100 last time. At least the auction is showing the bidders this time.
