    Saying goodbye

    It was a sad day yesterday as I drove my Z16/Z06 for the last time. Putting only 8000 miles on it since 2008, it was clear that our Grand Sport was to become our ONLY Corvette. I'll really miss my Z16, it is one HELL of an automobile. Congratulations to Jim L. who bought it from me, may your...

    Grand Sport c-6 models

    There were no models of the C6 Grand Sport made as close as far as I know. Greenlight produced a die cast C6 Z06 that could be converted to a GS Coupe but that is about it.
