Cougar Pace Car

It definitly wasn't an INDY 500 car.
The Indy pace cars from 66-75 were
66 Cyclone GT
67 Camaro SS
68 Torino GT
69 Camaro SS
70 442
71 Challenger
72 Hurst/Olds
73 Eldorado
74 Hurst Olds
75 Century 'Free Spirit'

And I believe Chevrolet has paced every Brickyard 400 race to date as well......

What track did this Cougar pace I wonder?

Where is Rosebud?
My wife and I cruise to different places on the weekends. It sounds like an excellent place to cruise to.:D

Have you considered

Have you ever considered that it may be a Dan Gurney Special? Now that would be worth the extra bucks!

Just a thought
