Ominous Z06's Collection

1963 Corvette Roadster, L76 327-340hp, 4spd, power brakes in Silver Blue, white top, and dark blue interior.  100% numbers matching.  Originally sold new just up the road in Dayton OH.  We found the car in Bowling Green, KY literally at the National Corvette Museum.  

1978 25th Silver Anniversary C3, B2Z silver paint, Oyster interior, optional L82 220hp engine, M21 4spd transmission, FE7 gymkhana suspension, and only 453 original miles!  This is a benchmark car.  I'm the second owner.  Car has only been on the road two times since new.  Original owner was a collector in Dayton, OH who ordered the car from Dan Hixon Chevrolet in Abilene TX.  He had it delivered (for whatever reason) to Topeka KS, from where it was driven to his home in Dayton, gathering nearly all the mileage.   I purchased the car in 2001 in my family's hometown of St. Mary's, Ohio from Bud's Chevrolet.

1991 Corvette ZR-1. #1609.  Powered by the amazing quad cam, 32 valve LT5 V8 built by Mercury Marine.   Bright red with gray interior, and dual tops. Mods include ultra rare Shelby Series 1 wheels, Nitto NT555R tires, and a Marc Haibeck chip.  An NCRS Top Flight regional winner.   This is the car I absolutely could not live without.  I am the second owner and the sixth owner of this "King of the Hill".   The car was originally delivered by Courtesy Chevrolet in Thousand Oaks, CA.   I purchased it in 2001 from Bud's Chevrolet, but sold it in 2009 to the third owner in Scottsdale AZ.   I later went on a 6 year hunt to find it again.  Divine mercies were at work, as I located it only a mere 90 miles from my house! I bought it back from the fifth owner (who lived in Marysville, OH) in June 2015.  All original paper work is with the car, including the original, complete Owners Kit.


1993 Corvette 40th Coupe.  Z25 Ruby 40th Anniversary package.   LT1 300hp/340 ft lb engine, 4spd automatic.  Also purchased from Bud's Chevrolet in St. Mary's Ohio in April 2005.    I'm the third owner.  Car still has the stock wheels & Goodyear GSC tires, but has open air filter lid, chambered exhaust system, new optispark, NGK plugs, and Taylor wires.  Recently, I mounted a set of stock polished C6 Z06 wheels in 19x12 R and 18x9.5 F.

1996 C4 Corvette Grand Sport #628.   Super rare GS coupe with red interior & the optional Z51 performance handling package.  Certified as 1 of 17 by the Grand Sport Registry.  LT4-330hp engine, 6 speed manual, UJ6 LTPWS, and Bose sound system.  Recently added a set of super rare Shelby Series 1 wheels in 18x12; 18x10 powdercoated in gloss black.   This car was originally sold in Bradenton, Florida.   I found the car via VetteNet and purchased from Hawley Motors in Sarasota.

2004 C5 Z06.  LS6-405hp engine, 6 speed manual, Torch Red and desirable Mod Red Interior option. Mods include Hurst shifter, Halltech TRIC intake, ported throttle body, Borla Stinger exhaust, and lowered on stock bolts.  I purchased it new in Nov 2003 from Buds Chevrolet in St. Mary's.

2006 C6 Z06, 427ci 505hp LS7 engine, Victory Red paint with Red interior, 2LZ package, and R8C Museum Delivery!   Mods include OEM ZR1 black Cup wheels, Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tires, ZR1 Carbon Fiber splitter and rockers, Hurst shifter, and Airaid intake.  Recorded as one of the 447 Z06's delivered from the National Corvette Museum for model year 2006.   I'm the second owner, having purchased the car in my wife's hometown of Gwinnett, Georgia. 

2017 C7 Grand Sport Z16 Z07.   Rare production Z15 Heritage Package in Admiral Blue / White Stripe / Red Hashes, and LOADED with options:  3LT, 8spd paddle shift, AE4 competition seats, 196 black suede interior, FAY carbon fiber dash, J6F red calipers, and the ultimate performance Z07 track suspension.  Perfect stablemate to his older brother above.  Car was purchased from Bud's Chevrolet (surprise!) and is still brand new with only 800 miles.   Will never know for certain, but estimates are this car is one of 25 to 74 produced in 2017 with these options.  Mods include front & rear Stage 3 Aero kit in carbon flash metallic.
