I see that the roof was removed and a targa style roll bar installed on the 1974 Olds Pace car. My question is, did they make more than one, like for a back-up? If so where are they? All the Pace cars I have seen have T-tops or hardtop. Also,did Demmer Engineering put in bracing? if so, where, how and what?

I posted that pic in the gallery- I know of only the one with this special treatment. It was to show off Ms. Vaughn in all her glory. There were a few others built but not like that one.

Yeah it's great...Love the Sedan leading the charge. They look like they're in a half mile long caravan.
