Car #11: 1968 327 Corvette Convertible, Safari Yellow
Owner: Paul Pollock
Description: Here is my ’68 convertible, four speed “Driver”. Photographed in San Diego at the Plastic Fantastic show in Seaport Village.
It is stock with a non-original 350 motor. Gets driven to club events, shows and I occasional reward myself trips to work. Owned for six years; recent addition is a new exhaust system. To learn more, visit http://corvettestory.com/1968-Corvette-upclose.php
Car #10: 1980 Corvette
Owner: Mario A.
Description: The C3 1980 Corvette is still wearing its factory-original, sprayed on in St. Louis silver paint! WOW!
Car #9: 2004 Le Mans Commemorative Edition convertible
Owner: Mike P, Oro Valley, AZ
Description: Purchased “gently used” in December of 2014, my 2004 Le Mans Commemorative Edition convertible is the C5 I always dreamed of owning. It came with a Hurricane Intake and Corsa Indy Pro exhaust, and is fully loaded with many factory options. A few minor cosmetic upgrades were done to “personalize” it for my taste, without detracting from its rarity and collectability.
One more thing: it is my DAILY DRIVER!
Car #8: 2016 Z06 Corvette
Owner: Linda Adams, Litchfield, Arizona
Description: Here’s my George Wintersteen & Roger Penske 1964 Grand Sport Replica, along with my 2015 Z06. This is the 27th and 28th Vette I have owned.
Car #7: 1991 ZR1 Corvette
Owner: Keith C., Seattle, Washington
Description: She’s red on red and she’s fast. Less than 20k miles and that LT5 still runs strong. The “King” is alive and well!
Car #6: 2016 Z06 Corvette
Owner: Marko Channell
Description: 2016 Corvette ZO6 with the Vengeance Stage 3 performance package. 862rwhp and over 1200lbs of torque. Custom ground cam, heads, hardened push rods, trunion upgrade, American Racing headers mated to an American Racing catless xpipe out to custom Billy Boat Bullit mufflers with AMF Valve delete. Haltech cold air intake, Katech timing assembly and dyno tuned with many other performance parts with the car approaching high 8 second low 9’s with a 7 speed manual on pump gas. Thank you for your time. You can get in touch with me at anytime for more info on “BLKNYT”.
Car #5: 2017 Grand Sport Convertible & 1996 Grand Sport Convertible
Owner: John “Hutch” Hutchinson, Orlando, FL
Description: Here are our two Grand Sport Corvettes. My wife’s Corvette is a 1996 Grand Sport convertible #707. This is the rarest of the breed with factory original red interior. She says she wouldn’t drive a Corvette with an automatic transmission. Gotta love a woman like that. 🙂
We also have a matching 2017 GS convertible, Admiral Blue w/Red guts. This was our “Bucket List” dream Corvette which we took R8C Museum Delivery of in May this year.
For part of the backstory, I’m Retired Army and the Skunkmaster for the Official Grand Sport Registry, and my wife and I have owned close to 30 Corvettes over the years. They were all great, but only a few of them were truly GRAND! 😉
Car #4: 2009 Corvette GT1 Championship Edition
Owner: Mark Mascuch – Entered 11.27-17
Description: 1 of 10 yellow convertibles and 1 of the 125 total 2009 GT1 Championship Edition Corvettes. This Special Edition Corvette was available on the coupe, convertible, Z06 and ZR1. These are some of the rarest special edition Corvettes!
Description: Installed a Silver Stinger Stripe with Black Stingray Accent Stripes on the sides. The Red Hash Marks are an homage to ALL the Grand Sports. After owning Corvettes from C1 to C7, I have to say that the C7 is the BEST Corvette yet!
Description: This is the “Carbon Fiber Edition” Stingray. It is #1445 off the line for the C7 era. I am a huge Carbon Fiber proponent. Almost everything that was done in Carbon Flash (black metallic) from the factory is now done in Carbon Fiber. There are about $33,000 in aftermarket add-on’s on this Corvette! So the majority of the interior, exterior and engine bay is done in Carbon Fiber. This car is the first C7 to ever have red seat belts. I know this because I got these before red seat belts became a factory option!
Description: Here’s my entry. 69 350/350 4speed, side exhaust.
