Convertible
The 67th edition of the Indianapolis 500 was led by the official Pace Car - the Buick Riviera. The Buick Riviera convertible was powered by a turbocharged 4.1-liter V6 offering an astonishing 450 horsepower. They had a Delco digital onboard computer which controlled all major engine functions including: fuel injection, air-fuel mixture, mass air-flow sensors, ignition, idle speed and the turbo waste gates. Real wood was used for the interior trim and the steering wheel.

'Duke' Nalon of Novi race car fame drove the Riviera pace car for the 1983 Indy 500.
