71 vert as pace car in 1971 Ohio Trans Am race
#1
As I was browsing some old issues of Hemmings Muscle Machines I stumbled upon this interesting picture of a Trans Am race in Ohio in the summer of 1971 and it shows a convertible pace car just pulling in off the track.
Given the season, I assume it´s a 71.
While I was looking for the picture on the internet I happened to find the complete article. This is the link:

Looks small and trim in comparison to the race-prepped 1970's on the track.
