Owner's Name: Ian Chapman
Lives In: Shawnigan Lake, British Columbia (Canada) 
Pace Car Vin #: ???
Engine/Transmission: V-8/manual

This 79 pace car is one of 405 that were imported into Canada, and of
 those one of only 185 of the Canadian cars that was assembled at the
 San Jose plant.  Options on this car include premium sound (AM/FM
 cassette), tilt steering wheel with the 3-spoke sport wheel. No A/C,
 cruise control or power options.  It was originally bought at a
 Vancouver, B.C. dealership, and has always "lived" on the West
 Coast.  It has 106,000 kilometers on it (about 67,000 miles) and has
 undergone a mild restoration to bring it to show quality. As far as
 I can trace I am the 5th owner of this car. The car has also been
 wired to run pace lights on the roof, and has been used to pace
 races at local oval tracks in the past.  I also have an original 79
 Pace Car jacket and a number of other pace car memorabilia items
 that I show with the car at different events. The next step is to
 complete the restoration by completely detailing the undercarriage
 and suspension.  I hope that have that completed by spring 2000. I 
 do drive the car during the summer months, but it stays inside when
 it rains and is stored in a garage through the winter, which is when
 I get most of the work done on the car.
