Boy, do I love Carlisle!

I mean I really love Carlisle and this year’s Carlisle was no exception! Jam packed full of new Corvette related products from all our Corporate Members. It’s like walking into a candy store wanting to taste the sweetness of each piece, but knowing they were all in wrappers and you can’t lick ‘em! That’s how I felt as I walked amongst our Corporate Member booths salivating at the hundreds upon hundreds of  “PARTS” to enhance your Corvette!

It’s always great to visit with Mid America Motorworks [Corporate Member# XC024] who’s leading sponsorship of Corvettes at Carlisle was  once again outstanding! Mike Yeager’s excitement and energy, along with his enthusiastic commitment to Corvettes at Carlisle, has really put
this event over the top! Mid America’s tent was standing room only all weekend.

Craig Chapman’s West Coast Corvettes [Corporate Member# WC014] tractor trailer set up was ideal for the booming business I witnessed during this year’s event. Ernie Francis was busier than a one-armed bandit at his beautiful Breathless Performance [Corporate Member# XC030] booth installing every conceivable item that they were offering to members. David Walker of ZIP Products [Corporate Member# ZC059] booth seemed to have the products that were “in demand” by the constant flow of members in and out of his location. And, of course, our friend Scott Kohn of Corvette Central [Corporate Member# WC003] who has been a friend of the Registry since February 1998, was passing out catalogs of their fabulous Corvette accessories to everyone visiting their booth.

I can see the smiles from here over at the CORSA [Corporate Member# WC006], Bassani Xhaust [Corporate Member# LC063] and Borla Performance Industries [Corporate Member# ZC058] booths as their products were being installed in “mass quantity” by every vendor that could install them for the drooling and discriminating Corvette customer. It’s obvious that everyone loves a different sound,and exhaust sound, in this case, is in the ear of the beholder!

As hard as I tried, I just couldn’t make it to every Corporate Member’s booth that was there, but hopefully you did!

Callaway…  Callaway ........ Callaway!!!!

That was the buzz on “The Hill” at Carlisle! Members were so pumped to have Reeves Callaway, the legend amongst Corvette owners, sharing with all of us at a special 10:00 am Saturday morning seminar about Callaway’s shift……from turbocharged Corvettes to SUPERCHARGED Corvettes.

Callaway decided to celebrate its twentieth year of constructing special high performance Corvettes by announcing the 2007 model year Callaway SuperCharged Corvette. I felt that the really big news was  that they are now available from an expanding network of Callaway  Authorized Dealers, which are specially selected Chevrolet dealerships that are fully equipped to provide service, financing and warranty support. All Callaway Corvettes are prepared at the Callaway Cars facility in Old Lyme, Connecticut. A second assembly location, located in Southern California and managed by Reeves Callaway’s son, Peter, is scheduled to begin manufacturing early next year.

The 560 horsepower Callaway SuperCharged Corvette exceeds the performance of the new 505 HP Z06 Corvette and can be configured as either Coupe or Convertible, and may be equipped with eithermanual or paddle-shift automatic transmission.
