Oh, I have the trust Grand Sport. I bought it with 11,000 miles... now I have 33000. After Florida, I'll have 36000, after the end of summer, I say I'll have 45000 miles on her.

She's loving every second of it!

So far she has an open air lid, K&N, Corsa cat back, 315 Drag Radials and a ton of Mothers car polish.

I'm considering getting some 18" wheels like these....

I have a 1987 dark red metallic coupe with saddle interior.

Options? Oh that's easy:

manual a/c
delco cassette radio
illuminated vanity mirrors, removed
electric outside mirrors
cruise control

The lack of options I guess is a good thing. Less things to break and makes the car light as heck! I should have the curb weight down to 3135. Race weight should be around 3270 on 1/2 tank of gas.

Mods are in the homepage. ;)

2001 Z06, quicksilver metallic with black interior. Purchased in July '01, it's a June '01 build so it has the running production changes (rings, polymer coated pistons) that eliminated the piston-slap/oil consumption problems of pre-April '01 LS6 builds. 8,500 miles and no problems.

You can view it at www.rjsmith.com/vette.html along with photos of the Corvette Museum, and the Corvette Racing C5-R at Laguna Seca.

Welcome! And, sweet car. How about uploading some pictures of your Z06 into the photo gallery? We could use some Z06's....

Let me know if I can help in any way.

I attached a photo to the reply but I have plenty of others I can upload to the gallery, including the C5-R and some racing ZR1s. I'm the copyright holder on all of them so they fit your guidelines.

Nice site. Very best of luck with it.

Save the Wave.

I uploaded a number of photos, some to the 1997-2003 section and some to the Corvette Racing section. I'll add more tomorrow. I've had four Corvettes now, three C4s and the Z06. All of the C4s were Bright Red, the Z06 is the first non-red Vette. I have hundreds of photos of the C4s in picturesque locales throught the western United States and Alberta, Canada. I'll post some of those too.

I have a 2002 Electron Blue Coupe. I bought it new in Feb or 2002. It has every option available, with exception of an automatic transmission. What fun would a sports car be without a 6 speed!
