I'm not much of a Musle car fan, but this is one car that i've always wanted to own because of sentimental reasons. which one should i get?

My choices:

-1978 Corvette mettalic red chrome wheels by UT

-or-

-the same 1978 Corvette Indy pace car black/silver chrome wheels by UT

as i've observed, both are exactly the same, just the style (the pace car has fender extensions.) both are t-tops

is one rare than the other?
which one would you pick if you had a choice? :question

That's a very tough one!!! :confused

I really like the Pace car.....but the red version is a beauty too.....don't know which is the harder one to find.

What ever decision you take, you can't go wrong coz they're both great models! :cheers

With the prices the Pace Cars are commanding, if you have the chance to pick one up - I say grab it.

The Pace Car is the most sought after of those two.

:iagree

Although, I'd like to add that Pace Car is going for 2-3 times what the standard car commands. Figure to spend at least $150 for one.

Also, Autoart makes the 78 in the 25th Anniversary version. Other than the lack of doglegs, I can't say if it is significantly improved over the UT mold.

I do recall that the pace car was part of the 25th ann. of the Corvette, and I believe they all had the L82 engine option (higher perf.) and F41 suspension. Also believe that it was used at Indy for pace car duties. I'm not an expert on Corvettes, as this is all from memory, so please excuse any errors in my info.
