Hello, all. As of yesterday I am an owner of a 2012 Calloway Grand Sport Centennial Edition Convertible. I got it from Chicago Motor Cars, and they were fantastic. It was snowing when I got it, but made the 400 mile trip home without any issue. I am excited about the car, and look forward to learning from many of you.

Many grettings from Italy.
After 25 years the unique Callaway LM GT2 built by Granturismo will come on the track.

I am very happy to say I have acquired #3 of 25 built of the 25th Anniversary Callaway. It only has 1,233 miles so it is practically brand new. The drive is beyond impressive with 620hp and 555torque. I added the vanity plate “RARE B2k”. The level of documentation received with the vehicle is very impressive, capturing history, design features and rational for the development of these very rare limited edition Chevrolet and Callaway created Corvettes.

New owner of '87 B2k, #112, purchased from a longtimre pal, who was the first registered owner.

With < 20k miles, it is VERY stock and his document stash is stunning for this dark red/gray w' gray Dymags [+std. 16"] that are on the Callaway buiid sheet.

At 5000' plus in N. AZ. I'm a bit bummed at the power, but am on a learning curve with this gem.

I owned 7 Vettes and built a darn fast white '84 with a Mear-Shinoda body and custom Sledgehammer hood 'scoops'. The 409cid was amazing, with SuperRam and ZF6 [installed by ZF Doc]. Sadly, the car burned to the ground, b/c, I believe a poorly engineered electric brake booster that leaked onto the headers. :afire Torque #s were roughly the same as this Callaway; that sleeper stayed with C6 ZO6s.

Very nice to find fellow callaway afficianados. :hi <<Save the Wave.

Hello all, I haven't actually taken delivery yet, but I am the proud new owner of the 2002 Callaway C8 Final Edition #001. It recently was placed up for sale on Bring a Trailer where it didn't meet the reserve, but I was the high bidder and was able to work out a deal with Ken Lingenfelter to buy the car. I am a car nut and Camaro collector. I of course knew about the C8 (including the final edition) and Callaway, but it honestly wasn't on my radar for ownership until I happened across one on BaT a while back. When the final edition came up for sale I thought it was an opportunity I couldn't pass up.

I Currently own a 2015 ZL1 Camaro, a 1992 Camaro Z/28 1LE heritage edition, and 2 91 Z28 project cars. I plan on driving the C8 a little bit and I'm looking forward to taking it to some shows where maybe there is a Callaway presence. I told my wife, this is a car that even people at a Camaro specific show probably wouldn't recognize. Hoping there are some good Callaway get togethers to take it to. Looking forward to getting to know people here, and learning more about the C8 cars out there. It looks like there are some other owners on the boards so please reach out and let me know. I think it would be super cool to get my car together with a LT1 C8 at some point for some photos.

Congrats on the purchase and welcome to the COG. Was this the red car that was just featured on The Drive? I saw the pic but haven't had a chance to read the article yet.

Any help on what to do to get it driving again would be appreciated. I think it has had gas in it from 1994 and fuel pump maybe shot???
Thanks
