Around 6 years ago a guy at a little used car place about 1/2 mile from my home in Jersey was selling a Calloway. I remember it being silver and either a mid or late 80's model. He wanted 12k for it and it was gone in 2 days. If I had known about Calloways back then I would have picked it up on the spot. The body was in great shape and it had twin turbos.
He He, look what I've found in my private archive:
in 1990 the Sledgehammer was tested by the best german Motor Magazin 'Sport Auto'. They called it 'Fastest Sports Car in the World', and I was so proud about that. I am a Corvette freak for more than 40 years now and since 1985 I am lucky to drive them. Here in f... Germany the Corvette does not have the best reputation (in the 70th the C3 was exclusively a pimp car here and this smell it did not loose until today).
So I had to bear lots of sarcasm for my passion. But when the Sledgehammer appeared I could say to all that bloody Porsche guys that had nothing but localism in mind:
'What ya want with your Micky Mouse closets? There is a Corvette that will hoover your toycars through the airfilter!'
