Why Are They Special To You?

What makes your Callaway (or Callaways) special to you?

Why did you buy one? What's your Callaway Story?

Bought the first one because my Lingenfelter was broken. Bought the second one because I enjoyed the first one so much.

Because they are NOT ordinary. I love the fact that I can go to a show or event and not see another one.

And I appreciate the engineering that goes in to them. Something about power AND longevity that appeals to me, personally.

I was half-way looking around at yellow C6 or C7s when my Callaway popped up on the radar screen locally. I knew I would never come across a yellow C6 4LT 6 speed manual again so I jumped on it.

The are UNIQUE and RARE! Driving one in top condition is a thrill. Even in the modern age, they are scary fast. VERY visceral old school power delivery and great handling. If you have a C4 Callaway, it is VERY, VERY rare you see another at a car show... I also work on my own car (mostly) and love the challenge of keeping them up to spec.
