1991 PPG Syclone Indy Pace Truck

Awards & Recognition

Can't get much rarer than this one.  Considered the Holy Grail by many Sy/TY enthusiasts, I am proud to have this 1 of 1 truck as part of my collection.  When GM went bankrupt in 2009 they sold some of the cars from their Heritage collection via Barrett Jackson.  I acquired the truck in 2013.
