Hi all.

New member here from Atlanta, Georgia. New to the Corvette world -- just picked up a 2013 GS, Callaway SC606, 4LT, 6-speed, yellow, 9k miles. Coming out of a 2011 Shelby GT500, which I loved dearly, but I could not pass up the opportunity to get the Callaway, which popped up for sale locally.

Not as many opportunities right now to more “fully experience” the Callaway given the winter temps and rainy weather we have been having. Hoping for some warm winter days and an early spring! Looking forward to enjoying the Callaway and getting use to the differences between it and the Shelby.

Also looking forward to interacting with all of you here on the forum. I’m sure I will have a number of questions as I go along.

I’ll go ahead and call a party foul on myself for not posting a pic or two with my intro. The weather has just been awful here and I haven’t had a chance to get it out in the sun (what’s that?) and snap a few good pics.

Oh, and I daily a 2014 Chevy SS so I'm not totally new to Chevy LS power!

See you around the forum!

Merry Christmas to everyone. I am in the hunt and have found a 2012 Corvette SC606 Centennial Edition Grandsport 6 speed manual that I am really interested in to replace my 2003 Z06. I would appreciate any and all insights or things to look for when doing due diligence pre-purchase inspections. I love my Z06, but after overcoming a form of paralysis I want to reward myself with something very special. Thank you and I plan to continue being involved in the Az. region as I am also a member of Fast Glass Corvette Club.

Really nothing to inspect outside of the ordinary. These cars can run a very long time. Our 2010 Grand Sport SC606 now has over 275,000 miles, and still going. Check alignment, as they were pretty aggressive. Brake pad wear, and tire wear (abnormal wear). The rest is straightforward. Belts and hoses, and the condition of the front harmonic balancer. Good luck.
