OPTIMA Presents Corvette of the Week: 1988 Callaway Twin Turbo Corvette #57
While this week’s Corvette of the Week is not the official Sledgehammer (car #51), people commonly mistake “BoostedmaxPSI’s” 1988 Callaway Twin Turbo Corvette #57 for the famous Sledgehammer.
Here’s a Corvette of the Week that exemplifies why Corvette fans are among the most passionate group of people on Earth. New forum member “JVH” from Georgia recently picked up this two-tone 1985 C4 in the classic light- and dark-bronze shades. Although JVH has owned this ‘Vette only a few months, he’s been involved in a love affair with this exact car for 18 years.

When I was on the Gumball 3000, I really wanted to talk to the owners of this rally-wrapped C7. But as ridiculous as it sounds, I wasn’t able to make it happen over the course of the eight days of the Rally. I’m going to man up take the blame here—but it was nuts.
