It's amazing the difference a year can make.  Now we have two Corvettes in the garage.   My mother-in-law recently transferred hers to my wife after 21 years of ownership.  I've been looking after it for the last 15 years or so since she stopped driving it (bad knees), but now it's fully restored (new tires, new fluids throughout, minor bugs fixed).   And, then, a few weeks ago I found a deal on a Grand Sport I just couldn't refuse!   It's identical in color and trim level (including manual transmission) as the ZR1 that I sold last year, but of course without all of the performance bits.   And I can drop the top!    :thumb:

Nice, C6 GS are awesome cars. Been looking at them and C6 Z06 recently. I want to buy a ice powered sports car or two for the long haul while I still can. The Camaro ZL1 1LE is tempting, super fast but also goes through consumables super fast. C8 w/Z51, Magride and 2LT package is about the same price. Not as fast but C8s are so nice, interior is on a whole 'nother level, far better street car and much cheaper on consumables. Then the Cayman/Boxster is ending in '26, Vettes will likely be around for 10 more years or so. Ideally I'd get a Camaro ZL1 1LE right now, a Cayman GT4 in '26 and a Z06 Vette in 2030... but first I'll need a winning lottery ticket, lol.

Recent pic of my SS 1LE... it's gradually turning into a ridiculously fast race car, lol.
