You don’t want to leave watermarks on the coffee table, but you don’t want to lose your street cred by putting down a coaster. We’ve got a solution – use Race Track Coasters and preserve your furniture (and cool status).

The Race Track Coasters are machined from layered HDPE and are adorned with six of the most well-known racing tracks from around the world: Laguna Seca, Monaco, Nürburgring, Road America, Spa, and Watkins Glen. And these coasters will perfectly match your décor, as they come in black and silver.

The set of six costs $40 and can be purchased at Groit’s Garage.

When you think of classic Chevy Camaro Pace Cars, the 1969 Z11 Indy Replica is probably the example that most often comes to mind. It’s a striking piece, finished in white with contrasting Hugger Orange stripes but perhaps the car pictured above is more interesting.

For starters, it’s an actual Pace Car from a race in 1969; secondly, that race happens to be the US Grand Prix at Watkins Glen, New York, as in the Formula One event, won that year by Austrian driver Jochen Rindt. This particular car is finished, like the Indy Pacers in Dover White, but looks a bit more subdued thanks to the black interior, subtle hockey-stick side stripes, door decals and tail panel.

It’s also equipped with some desirable options, namely an L78 396 cubic inch big-block V-8 with solid lifter rectangular port heads, TH400 three-speed automatic transmission, 12-bolt rear end with 3.55 gears and Positraction limited slip differential, power brakes, auxiliary gauges and a Rosewood steering wheel.

Currently being offered for sale through RK Motors of Charlotte, North Carolina (some of whose stock we’ve covered before), this Camaro has been fully restored and claimed to be in better than new condition, both outside and in. It also comes, perhaps not surprisingly with a wad of documentation.
