    I recall Jack Roush has 2 white painted 1979 Pace Cars.
    There's a 3rd Roush Pace Car, but I can't remember who owns it.
    All 3 original Pace Cars had T-tops, production models only had a sunroof.

    Some more info:

    Didn't the 3rd Pace car go the winner of the race that year? Rick Mears?

    I believe that the 3rd T-top car is in the Indy 500 museum.

    I'm sure Rick Mears was given a regular production model with the sunroof

    thats still some sweet info. Fox has eyes like a hawk to see what it said. I couldn't figure that out even if I tried with a magnifying glass.
