Larry C7 Grand Sport

C7 Corvette Grand Sport

Prior to now, I was blessed to have three Corvettes at different times of life - a C4, C5, and then a C6. After a stint without a nice performance car, I bought a 2017 1SS Camaro. While buying it my wife asked if I was sure that I wasn't going to wish I had bought a Corvette, and I said... "this Camaro is sweet"!

It was sweet, but widebody Corvette photos kept popping up in front of me and I found myself looking in my garage to see if a liquidation sale could make it possible. Was a Grand Sport Corvette worth selling my Camaro and track bikes?

Later in 2023, I plan to put together a video that covers my trek to get and trick out a car that I hadn't sat in nor driven, and the one I selected was three states away.

The Grand Sport sub model comes pretty loaded, but even after the 2LT package - there was some room for me to add some things I felt would make it even nicer for me. Check back regularly to see what I've added.
