This is the best one: 1990 Chevy Beretta.


My step-dad has one of the 8 prototypes in his shop from GM.

89 TTA was definitely the best

"Carter'* 20th Anniversary TTA, as well as the other 1,554, were built not only to commemorate the twentieth year of Pontiac'* flagship ponycar but also to pace the 73rd Indianapolis 500 on May 28, 1989. According to Pontiac Historic Services, the widely held belief that the TTA was the first pace car in the illustrious history of the Indy 500 that didn't need power modifications of any kind is true."
