Each dealer owner got to drive "their" car around the Long Beach track behind the pace car for 3 laps before the main event, and then home to their dealership.

Gary ST165, Thanks for the poster image. Never seen that before.

I bought the car originally over the phone, but with the caveat that I see it first... I was worried from the dealer's description that the IMSA GTO Champion decals would be exactly like those of the pace car! Like Chevy have been known do with pace car replicas. Fortunately not. I was relieved to discover that they are a lot more tasteful.

I just went to see this car earlier this week, and all that I have to say is wow.. awesome condition for being 20 years old. I doubt that anyone, anywhere will find an all trac, much less an IMSA edtion st165 in this good of condition. Mark was kind enough to let me view and photograph the car. He even took me for a drive, knowing full well that I had no intention to purchase the car. Mark is an awesome car loving guy. Whoever buys this car will be getting a deal.

Where exactly is car located? Would you be willing to meet in Redding? I'm located in Klamath Falls/Medford OR so redding is about a 2hr drive. I am very interested in the car and have cash in hand.

Great looking IMSA. So sad for it to go... I pray that the new owner treats it with love and respect... One of the best ST165 I have ever seen...
