I'm going to look into a Grand Sport convertible, 6 speed, with only 3,000 miles on Saturday. Anything special I should be aware of?

Good Luck Elaine, will you be giving up the 88 ? or are you adding to the stable.

Oh, I wish I could add to the stable...but I might give up Lemon!! Of course, the deal would have to be really good as I'm so attached to "her"!!

I know it would be tough to part with her but I'm sure you will find her a good home. It may be time to move on and what better way to move then in a Grand Sport. Go for it Elaine. it'll be like taking the training wheels off your bicycle. :upthumbs

What should you watch for?

How about "love at first sight"? ;)

Good luck, and I hope it turns out to be a great deal for you! I'm sure you'd love a GS!

No, it's not Steve's car, although I spoke to him about his just a couple of weeks ago. I just learned about this other one on the North Shore with even less miles than Steve's!

Imagine...two of these rare convertibles for sale in our area!

Elaine,

I'd have to say go for it! There is not too much you need to look at specificly for the GS that you wouldnt look at on another 'Vette.

Hey, if you do buy the GS you can join me and the rest of the GS'rs at the Grand Sport Registry. We've got membership stickers with the last 3 digets of the cars VIN on them. Not to mention custom floor mats... The list goes on.

Let us know what you do.:)

It's a No Go...

Well, after agonizing the better part of today, we've decided NOT to buy the gorgeous '96 Grand Sport! I'm pretty sure I can comfortably live with our decision...retirement is literally upon us, not in the far distant future, so we've decided not to spend a large amount of money or obtain a car loan for a "toy"! The GS was absolutely beautiful and was fantastic to drive...smooth, soft clutch, very responsive in all ways...and they offered me a great trade-in price for Lemon, but we decided to let it go. Maybe another time! In the meantime, Lemon is resting comfortably next to her big brother in the garage and I'm sure is breathing a sigh of relief!!

It's always good to test the waters and see what's on the other side Elaine. Even though the GS sounds like it was hard to pass up, with retirement issues in mind, I think you made a sound decision. There will be other opportunities for a new/additional Corvette in the future.

Thanks, Rob, for saying just the right things!! Makes me feel even more confident about our decision.
