Owner’s Quote – July 17, 2019

Yes, I still have my Callaway GTV6. I’ve had some restoration work done on it over the last few years at a vintage Alfa shop here in Houston, and it’s currently running great.

I was in high school in the early ’80s and was a bit car crazy, subscribing to all the car magazines. Upon seeing the article on the twin turbo GTV6 in Road & Track, I fell in love. Of course, there was no way to own one having just graduated from high school.

Fast-forward 17 years, after college, medical school, graduate school and residency. I landed my first job, which offered me a modest signing bonus. With money in my pocket, I remembered the Callaway Alfa and realized I might be able to actually afford one. 2002 was still the somewhat early days of e-commerce, but through old fashioned sifting through online Alfa communities, I found my car for sale by a seller in Los Angeles. The asking price was decent and the car was in reasonable shape apart from a few door dings and faded paint. So I bought it sight unseen and had it shipped to North Carolina, where I lived at the time. And I’ve had it ever since!

Owner’s Quote – July 15, 2019

Car burned to the ground in garage last year, totaled. Garage fire started by a defective plastic power strip. Thanks to Callaway authenticity documentation, show trophies, etc., insurance paid $99,000 instead of their first offer of $50,000.

Top speed was 212 mph. Was stopped at 174 mph on I-15 near Las Vegas. Loved the car and planning on a new SC757 now.

Owner’s Quote – June 27, 2019

What’s the best story about your Callaway?
I bought it and took delivery of it in ’14, first Stingray out of MacMulkin. I had it for 1200 miles and we were on the way to a charity event; I was in my ’12 Grand Sport and my dad was driving the ’14 Callaway. He called me in the car as he was behind me and told me to buy another ‘Vette because he wanted to buy the Callaway from me. Too funny. He took it in June of 2014.

Owner’s Quote – June 24, 2019

One day, I was driving on the Garden State Parkway (NJ) and, as a car passed me, they gave me a thumbs up. I waived and said, “Thank you”. Little did I know that they slowed down on the Parkway and, as I drove past their car, the girl in the passengers seat hung out of her car to take a video of my Callaway going past them. I felt so proud.

What’s the best story about your Callaway?
At a stoplight, a gentleman pulls up next to me in a late 1990s 911 Turbo. I rev the engine. (What would you do?) He laughs and says, “Not going to happen, I don’t stand a chance. I know what you have.”
The light turned green and together we discovered he was right. He didn’t stand a chance at all. I love my Callaway.

Registry Update – June 20, 2019

What’s the best story about your Callaway?
I love driving it, top down, on nice summer nights. It is a “sleeper” because no one knows what it is by its exterior appearance. I have had multiple guys in Hondas, Mustangs, etc. think they will blow me off at a stoplight or something, only to be very surprised. (I just can’t help myself, it is too fun to see them embarrassed by a mere C4 Corvette.) The turbo rush in third gear is my favorite. What an amazing car for its era!

I drive my cars. My Callaway has been on top of Pikes Peak in Colorado, Callaway in Connecticut, Boston, the South Coast around Myrtle Beach and many states in the midwest. I’ve taken it to an HPDE event on a road racing course as well. I love my Callaway and love the Supersonic Blue, not many of those running around.

Comments:
My wife and I have been Corvettes of Bakersfield members since 1997. The club puts on one of the largest West Coast Corvette shows in Laughlin, Nevada. Over 400 Corvettes from all over attend. Oh, what a blast to be around so many cars of your childhood dreams. But – you could be right in the middle of all of these beautiful “regular” Corvettes and if a Callaway would pull in, and I’ll kid you not, you could actually hear people say “Oh man, it’s a Callaway!” “Wish I could have one!” “Now there’s a mean machine!” “Those are The Baddest Corvettes around!” And as I grew to learn about America’s Greatest Sports Car, I realized they were all right!!! Never in a million years, did I ever think I could ever own one of the planet’s finest Corvettes – made by Callaway. But it happened.

Owner’s Quote – June 15, 2019

Just returned from a 1600+ mile road trip from southern Colorado to Pahrump/Spring Mountain, NV and back. My Callaway SC757 performed flawlessly. After several laps in a stock ZO6, and many full throttle acceleration runs down the back straight… then hopping back into mine, the difference is stark and always impressive. I still don’t care about the “verbal dyno wars”. Maximum power with constant tinkering, questionable reliability and little or no warranty was never my goal.

Sitting in traffic in 100+º or many pulls at uh, “pretty legal” figures, coolant temps remained in consistent and acceptable ranges, never approaching level of even moderate concern.

My goal was significant power increases, a package with history and exclusivity, OEM-level fit and finish, enhanced cooling, reliability, warranty preservation and the peace of mind of driving anywhere across the country, anytime, with complete confidence. Mission Accomplished. Thank You Callaway Cars!

Owner’s Quote – May 2, 2019

Thank you, Joanne, for sending me a copy of the actual window sticker for my 2012 Callaway! It has a copious amount of VERY useful information. I’m 74 years old and have owned several Corvettes over that time, starting with a red 1962, an orange 1971 convertible, and now the 2012 Callaway. They have all been great fun to drive; however, NONE OF THEM TOOK MY BREATH AWAY LIKE THE CALLAWAY. I do not mean just the power …

SHAZAM, THE ACCELERATION WILL LIGHT YOUR HAIR ON FIRE!!!

I think the Callaway just might be one of the most expressive, highly innovative, and wonderfully focused on significantly stirring the imagination of folks of ALL ages. It is a HOOT TO WATCH PEOPLE EXPRESS THEMSELVES AND, IF PARKED AT THE LOCAL ICE CREAM PARLOR LIKE WE DO, TO JUST LISTEN TO THE BANTER BETWEEN WOMEN AND MEN, YOUNG AND OLD, FLAUNT THEIR WIDELY VARYING OPINIONS ON HOW MY CAR, A HEARTSTOPPIN’, SEXYYYY, DREAM MACHINE, WAS CONCEIVED… AND SO YOU HAVE IT… WHO AM I TO BLOW AGAINST THE WIND?
THANKS AGAIN JOANNE.

– Dave
THE HAPPY OWNER
