1982 Camaro Festival Cars

There is a list on this site that is labeled "Festival Cars". Downloading it gives a list of 44 cars and the last names of the person it was assigned. These cars listed were actually not the only Festival Cars, but these were the cars assigned the "500 Festival Associate Directors" which is a committee that plans a number of events associated with the race, such as the Festival Queen, marathon, parade, etc. Does anyone have a copy of the rest of the list? I do have the VINs of the eighty five Camaros used by track officials, local dignitaries, etc. but not the name to whom the car was assigned. The Indy List would also have the other cars used at the track such as the Chevy Celebrities and support vehicles. There may also be a mistake-I have car #7 last six as 127039, but have not seen 127029 as shown. The three cars with the "? not sure of digit" notation are actually the letter "X" for the check digit.

I'll dig them up. It would be rather easy to ID as one of the two cars. Five-point seatbelts, Lightbar (4 lights no mirror), fire suppressant system, and flag brackets.

The entire engine on the actual Pace cars for service in 1982 was all aluminum and based off a a 350 cubic inch design dating from the Chaparral Program. Used 1970 LT-1 internals too.
