My cars are one of a kind and they took much longer to build than most other Callaway cars!
The Secret is they took years to build, but I’m not gonna say how many.

I'm in my first year of Callaway ownership with my 2007 Callaway Corvette Convertible. I found it on Corvetteforum while searching around for a C7 Z06 as a new vacation car to replace my C5 coupe. I had no interest in C6's but for a 20,000 mile Callaway I could make an exception. So my wife an I last second flew to Palm Beach, Florida to buy the car and drive it home. In the end I've driven a number of C7's since buying this car and am happy with my C6 now. I am 6'1" 280 pounds of mostly muscle with adequate beer belly :joker (I'm a carpenter of 25 years) and I find that the C7 is a bit cramped for me. The C6 is smaller than my C5 but roomy and comfortable.

Last week we went to Glacier National Park, Yellowstone, Cody, WY, the Big Horn Mountains, then to the Black Hills Corvette Classic. The Callaway has been a wonderful car to travel in. Autocross performance was great in the car, drag racing it runs right with the C7 Z06's that my buddies were running. For an older car the performance is shocking. And the tremendously loud whine of the maggie got LOTS of comments at the drag racing event. :cool At the Vette Street downtown car show event I had the hood open and the polished maggie all shined up and the car had groups of people around it the entire night. I was a bit surprised at the amount of attention that it got. In a field of C8's and all sorts of C7's the C6 Callaway is unique enough that people take notice. We did 3,200 miles round trip in nine days and did all of them but 110 miles with the top down. It was kind of fun.
