I have had a number of people ask over the years if I would ever consider selling one of the ‘real’ 2000 Daytona 500 Pace cars.
I have had them in the collection 15 years & maybe it is time to consider sharing.
I don’t need to sell anything & actually have two offers in the $30k range.
Visit the web site with a lot more info & photos.
Thanks for looking
