Hi all ....former Lurker now a member.

Recently ordered a 2010 Callaway Grand Sport in Cyber grey plus a few other goodies including the Callaway shifter and the exhaust louvres from Nicolson Chevrolet in Edmonton Alberta Canada. the car is built and should be enroute to California for its awakening.

This will be my 2nd Chev in my 50 year existence and my first Corvette. I have been a die hard Pontiac brand member and collector for all of my life. I have secretly wanted a Callaway Corvette for years but would have had to divorce my family and my beliefs. That all changed in April when GM killed an 84 year icon, in order to go on bended knee to our respective governments for a new lip to breast attachment. On Pontiacs demise I came to the conclusion that I had been set free to step over to the dark side and aquire other brands. I currently own a GMC diesel 2500 that sees use as a daily driver, a 1970 GTO RA iii Car, which is currently set up to run the 1320 which it does with aplomb in the mid 10's. I am running a 541 ci aftermarket block pontiac currently out getting freshened for next spring. The goal is a 9. I also have a 70 Orbit Orange Judge 4speed car that is driven often. It is not a numbers car but has a healthy 455 between the rails that melts the tires on command. I also have an 02 Firehawk Vert (last year) Sunset orange with a MN6 that is a fun car to drive and own. My wife is a BMW freak with a an X5 that is banished from the garage along with any grown prodgeny (3 at last count and they are finally all gone...yeah...big victory dance etc) . I finally own my garage and I have set it up in a very tacky way with a plethora of scantily clad beauties, car signs, clocks, beer stuff big screen TV , fridge etc. I find myself being a very happy home guy.

I can't wait to take delivery of my SC606 in the next 2 months and get it out went the snow is gone....I envy you Southern boys and just love the cars you post

02hawk,

Congrats!

We can't wait to see pictures of your new ride!...

I've been thinking of starting a new Forum for Classics and Collectibles (non-Callaway, Corvette, or Camaro).

I've been lurking here a while and it is time to introduce myself. I live near St. Louis and currently own 3 Corvettes (62 Fuelie, 96 Grand Sport Coupe, 96 Grand Sport Convertible, plus a 57 Chevy Convertible). I have previously owned a 62 340 HP, 70 LT1, 69 Convertible and just today sold an 06 Convertible.

Gil (gils4sea) introduced me to the forum. He, another friend Dan and I just spent several days in Bowling Green watching my Grand Sport being built. It was finished yesterday (1/25/10).
Cyber Gray
Convertible
Black Top
Hertiage Package
2-Tone Red/Black seats
Paddle Shift

It will soon be going to CT for the SC606 conversion and then back to Bowling Green for Museum Delivery.
