As the Indy 500 ran today it was time to look back on the Buick 500 pace cars that manage to make the cut, good or bad, as something that may never be seen again, enjoy.

Just couldn't let this pass by, a Kodak moment if ever there was one.

Buick was pretty legendary at one point. I still hope for a comeback someday. Thanks for the pictures!

When I saw the Hurst Lesabre I had to wonder who at GM green light that idea or what meds they were. Did they feel the youth market was going to flock to the dealers for the sporty Lesabre, LOL.

NASCAR looks promissing for the Encore as beer carts are always welcomed.

The '75 LeSabre vert was a parade car used for track festivities. 40 were built for beauty queens and other famous celebrities. 75 Buick LeSabre d.jpg

It was a great honor to be picked as the Indy Pace car. The publicity and TV footage was off the charts.

I would like to add some pics from my collection to compliment yours.

The festivities Hurst Lesabre , well let's just say it didn't do anything for Hurst or Lesabre especially with its ass dragging. Don't think it replaced any Lamborghini Countach bedroom posters either, but Linda Vaughn could make any car look good LMAO

Nice photos thanks for the addtion.
