Actually, I need your help!!!
I have been without the GS for a mere 2 days, and it is killing me!!!!!

Help me find the car of my dreams....a 1996 Grand Sport convertible with red interior. If I buy the car you find, I will pay a finder's fee.
:cheers: :partyon:

There is a Corvette and Collectables that opened up in my town this last summer. They used to have 2 or 3 G.S.'s on display but I haven't seen any in a while. I'll stop by there on my way to PHP later on this afternoon and see what they have on hand. :thumbsup:

Have you checked on Hemmings.com?

Actually I just did to no avail, there were a few GS's listed, no verts no red interior.

Maybe dumb of me or I missed something....why did you sell to begin with?

John, thank you again!!

Why did I sell mine? Short story made long...

When I bought the car, sight unseen, I trusted a GM dealership in Utah (I'm in GA) to look over the car for me. They told me the car was perfect!!! Got here, and it wasn't...hashmarks missing, damage to passenger side front, key mark on the hood, door panels were in bad shape, underside of the hood was blue, screens were blue, dipstick was blue...so $1000 in maintenance later, car is looking better. Then the title trouble started...somebody got skipped on the title in Utah, so 2 months later, I am the owner in Utah, which I have never visited, so I can get a title in GA....:spanked:

The car just left a bad taste in my mouth from the beginning, so now I'm after the "Ultimate" Grand Sport....a ragtop with the bleeder interior. If and when I find a clean one, she's headed to GA!!!! :thumbsup: :smokin: :cheers:

I can completely understand that.

Sure you don't want a 72 Vert? 454, 4 speed, 56k miles? Original owner....my neighbor is selling his. Yellow, black interior white top. Asking mid 20's.

To answer the rest of the questions....

John, thank you for looking!! I tried sending you a PM, but your box was full. :D

The 42K miler in that ad is the car on EBAY....he'll take $29K for the car, but it is not what I want.

There are 53 bleeder ragtops, 42 with the F45, I want 1 of those 42. :thumbsup:

My price range is open, but no unlimited. For the right car, I pla on spending some "C5" type cash. I kow the car won't be cheap, but it will fill my GS void.

Again folks, thank you for all of your help!!!!! I know the car will come around, and I just have to be lucky enough to be there when it does. :cheers: :partyon:
