Dick Guldstrand announced that his Signature Edition Anniversary Corvette will be powered by a new generation 500-horsepower 427 V8.
Not much bang for the buck. The car costs $101,225, and doesn't turn very impressive times for a car with a 422 cubic inch engine (4.1 inch bore x 4.0 inch stroke) built by Katech. You could buy a Z06 and a convertible for that kind of money.

Car and Driver has a piece on it in the April 2003 issue (page 130). They don't like it, but they don't like Corvettes generally, so take their remarks with a grain of salt.

See page 68 for an example of how their editorial staff takes any and every opportunity to take shots at Corvette and Corvette owners (remember the "gold chain crowd" moniker they hung on Vette owners in the '80s?).

"We met a guy once with a 40-pound beer gut who beamed over the 15-pounds he'd saved by installing a $5000 titanium exhaust system on his Corvette." - Larry Webster
By the way, this was in a "preview" of the Dodge Viper Competition Coupe. He had to reach to make the slur fit into the context of the article, but he missed the mark. Larry should buy the product advertised on page 178. That might solve his problem.
