Post Sixth Gen Options Thread: Pace Car Editions

PLEASE DON'T REPLY TO THREAD UNTIL ALL OF THE PACE CARS ARE UP (the last one is the blue 03)

Hey guys! So this is a thread that explains the sixth generation Monte Carlo packages offered on the sixth generation (2000-2005) Monte Carlos that I know of. I know it’* taken me forever to get around to doing them but I did some research on the internet to make sure I had all of the information right & to figure out if I was missing any but it looked like I was not, but if you guys know of any I missed, please feel free to add to the thread =) Also all of these pics were taken from ads off cars.com and a couple others. Sorry for the bad quality of some of them

First off is the Pace Car Replicas…

The pace car editions were offered on the Monte Carlos during the years of 2000, 2001, 2002, & 2003. Each year had a specific color to go with it, and each year/color had specific features that make it unique. However, they share a vast amount of features. They include the following:
· Galaxy Silver ground effects/high sport kit
· Checkered flagging decals on fenders & doors
· TAZ decals on quarter panels & trunk lid behind the Monte Carlo script
· “Race Inspired” rear spoiler that resembles the look of the NASCAR spoiler—aka the Pace Car spoiler
· Limited Edition Plaque on trunk lid
· Monte Carlo script on the dash is replace with “Pace Car”
· Gauge cluster displays “Limited Edition” below the speedometer where it would say “Apply Brake To Shift From Park”
· 16-inch diamond-cut-cast-aluminum wheels
· Door sills that display the Monte Carlo nameplate
· Ebony interior with leather bucket seats
· Stainless-steel dual exhaust tips
· 4 colors made with a specific color designated for the year
· Limited production of each one
· Each came with a spoiler decal that stated “Team Monte Carlo” and a windshield banner that stated “Monte Carlo” but it was an owner’* option, meaning that they came in a separate box so the owner could decide if they even wanted the decals on the car. This also gave the owner the ability to pick where they wanted the decal to be. For example, instead of putting the spoiler decal on the backside of the spoiler to display with the rest of the trunk panel, some decided to place the decal on the front side of the spoiler like what was done with the true NASCAR Pace Car Monte Carlos
· Came with Certificate of Authenticity

Alright first let’* start with the 2000 Monte Carlo SS Pace Car.

Name:  99-montecarlo2.jpg
Views: 502
Size:  64.0 KB

This Monte Carlo is Torch red with the galaxy silver high sport kit. It was the Pace Car with the greatest number produced from the factory, 2,222. It’* interior was by far the most “in your face” of all of the Pace Car interiors. The interior is two-tone with ebony (black) and red. The entire interior is decorated in ebony and red which includes the leather seats, plastic panels, steering wheel, etc. They also possess a somewhat large, red Chevy bowtie embroidered on each headrests of the front seats. This Pace Car is specifically unique because it was the only one to have a two-tone interior designed to match the base exterior color of the car. The 2001 Pace Car also shares this special feature, but it’* a little different and will be explained later. Alright well let’* get to the pictures.

This is a Pace Car that I wouldn’t mind having…

The next Pace Car on the list is my favorite, the 2001 Pace Car Monte Carlo SS.

Name:  01BPACE3.jpg
Views: 305
Size:  57.8 KB

This Pace Car is black with the silver galaxy high sport kit. GM produced 1,300 of this one. It’* two-tone interior was also very unique too. It was two-toned exactly like the 2000 Pace Car, however, anywhere there was red on the 2000 model there is grey on the 2001. Therefore it was ebony and grey two-tone interior. It also has the Chevy bowtie embroidered headrests in grey. Now onto pictures.

Next on the list: The 2002 Monte Carlo SS Pace Car

Name:  Chevrolet-Monte_Carlo_Brickyard_Pace_Car_2001_800x600_wallpaper_05.jpg
Views: 216
Size:  52.6 KB

The 2002 Pace Car is competition yellow with a galaxy high sport kit. 1,150 were made. This is the year when I guess GM starting cutting cost because the only part that seemed to be two-toned in the car’* interior was the steering wheels & shifter. It was two-toned ebony and grey like in the 2001 Pace Car and also had Chevy bowtie embroidered headrests.

I have a 2002! I love it so much! I never thought I would like a yellow car, but it'* just the "right" colour yellow. And I actually like that GM didn't make the interior two toned (yellow and black) that would have been so distracting! Great post SpinEm_90! I'll post a pic soon!

Welcome to the forums, just a heads up though, this thread is 3 years old, and that forum member does not post on here anymore, so you'd be better off going here, and posting your picture, posting them in the section I am linking you to will also allow your pic to be considered for a future Car Of The Month nomination.

Your Ride: GM Pictures & Videos - GM Forum - Buick, Cadillac, Chev, Olds, GMC & Pontiac chat

Since the thread has not been active for 3 years I am closing it, however still feel free to make an introductory post here.

And share your pic, or pics via the first link I provided, thanks.
