I saw there is one in the museum on display under the dome. I have our tour guide collecting the info on that one for me :-)

I'll get that added, and the ones mentioned recently after we get back home from our trip.

Hello all, I'm new around these parts.

Ran into this thread and wanted to let you know I am responsible for #221 here in SLC, UT. M7 Coupe with Comp Seats, Carbon Flash Ground Effects, and Z07.

MSRP was somewhere around $95k, though I did much better than that. Don't have pictures immediately available. Winter has been unforgiving here, so she's cuddled up safe in the garage with my '99 base C5. Took delivery on 1/3, still sitting on all of 7 miles.

Cheers!

Insert pic of dark gray metallic car with blue interior here ->

I wasn't even thinking about getting another toy except maybe a 30s Ford street rod. Was actually looking for my wife. She's been debating over the new Maserati whatever SUV and the Jag F-Pace. Then was pondering about a Volvo XC-60 after having one as a rental. Out of the blue she said she thought the C7 vette looked great. Say no more! Off to the nearest dealer with the largest inventory. Found a gorgeous GS in black rose with the Kalahari LT3 package. She drove it (super cushy mode of course) and loved it. While lingering in the showroom awaiting the sales manager my wife commented that the CE sitting there would be great for me. Didn't really give it a second thought, at least not until later. Couldn't strike a deal so called up Alan at Matick. Ordered the car for my wife and bought a CE.

They will be joining my '64 vert and C6Z06 among others. I think I led my wife to believe that I'd sell the Z06, but I'm figuring out how to keep it.

#214 is here @ Radley Chevrolet. It is an Auto/Coupe and is sold. Not sure where the owner lives - I know he is a friend of one of the salesmen.

That's AWESOME news, congrats and welcome to the club!

I've started collecting more detail in the registry, if you take a look at the spreadsheet link I added you're info, scroll to the right and you'll see I'm tracking detailed RPO/LPO options. If you have that info from yours it would be great to collect.

Looks like you have the side ground effects (Carbon Flash (CFZ) it looks like) but it doesn't look like the front splitters are there?

A Grand Sport with CFV/Z ground effects should have the large splitter, small end caps, long rockers (which is what it looks like in your picture), high wickers with no clear bridge. If you look at the picture of John's in this post he has a good pic that shows the front ground effects that I'm talking about.

You clearly have the J6F Red Calipers so I marked that.

Hey John M, saw this nice story about your Museum Delivery today, hope you don't mind me sharing it on this thread since it is GSCE related!

Awesome story!

That is the base aero package.

So are those the base, short rockers. No CFV/Z package on that? Was a little hard to tell in the photo, I thought it had the Long Rockers, but it probably doesn't now that I re-look at it :-)

Not to give out too much information from what I was told, but the dealer inventory section of the C7 Forum indicates that #285 has been sold over at George Matick. They're really doing a good job over there.

I've had mine for a short time and haven't been able to drive it much with all the rains here, but the smile still can't be wiped from my face, so I can relate, enjoy!

Any options on yours that I should list in the registry, or is it N all across? Many seemed to come with the battery protection package and the front plate mount, but not all.
