2013 (C6) Corvette 427 Collector’s Edition Convertible

The powerplant at the heart of the car – is a 427-cubic-inch (7.0L) LS7 engine, the same engine used in the C6 Corvette Z06.  This 427 was the most powerful engine GM had ever installed in a production Corvette convertible to date.

What made the 427 Convertible truly unique is that it incorporated elements from the Z06 and ZR1. It included the driveline and rear axle system from the Corvette Z06 and a rear-mounted battery, and standard Magnetic Selective Ride Control. It also came equipped with 19-inch front and 20-inch rear wheels, wrapped in the ZR1-style Michelin PS2 tires.  The car featured lightweight machine-face Cup wheels, first introduced on the 2012 Corvette Z06 (when equipped with the Z07 package) and the Corvette ZR1 when equipped with the PDE performance package.

Outwardly, the 427 Convertible was equipped with several carbon-fiber body components, all of which were incorporated into the car to help reduce the car’s weight. 


These included:

  • Carbon fiber raised hood (which had been first introduced for the 2011 Z06 Carbon Edition)

  • Carbon fiber Z06-style fenders

  • Carbon fiber floor panels

  • The “CFZ” carbon fiber front splitter and rocker panels.

  • ZR1-style rear spoiler


Only 2,552 2013 427 Convertible Corvettes were ever built.

2008 (C6) Corvette Coupe

As a fine car enthusiast, I have owned everything from AC Cobras to early original Z/28 Camaro’s, but never a Corvette. Most recently, I located my first Corvette, which is a low mileage 2008 C6, equipped with a 430 HP LS3 engine and an automatic transmission. The car looks and runs great!

2000 Chevrolet Corvette (C5)

As if Y2K wasn’t hard enough on us in the computer world, we owned a 2 seater foreign car which was nickel and diming us to death. Yes, the year was 2000. The last straw in owning the foreign car was when the passenger window would go down but would not go up. I was then on a mission to replace it. Went to car row in Downers Grove, Illinois and immediately started searching for a Corvette. Found a used 1998 but didn’t know if the price was fair. I remembered that a friend of our son worked at a Corvette restoration company so I stopped to ask him about their price. He said why buy a used one when I can sell you a new one for about the same price. That was the day we bought our 2000 Torch Red Corvette Coupe. Oftentimes we have thought about getting rid of it, but once you drive it the thought vanishes. What’s special about it? Everything to us.

2019 Ford Mustang

It was 1968, I was 20 years old in my second year of college with a good job as a Bartender at a high-end restaurant in Michigan.  I had saved enough money to rid myself of my 1960 Oldsmobile 88 which had a heater that did not always work.  I purchased a 1966 Red Ford Mustang for $1,200 and my trade-in.  I loved that car!  After marriage in 1970, my wife Geri loaded up the Mustang and drove it from Michigan to Corpus Christi, Texas at the U.S. Naval Hospital where I was assigned on active duty Navy.  In 1972 we sold the Mustang to purchase airfare from Texas to Michigan.


Fast forward to October 2021 Venice, Florida where we are Snowbirds.  I found a 2019 Red Mustang Convertible which we purchased as soon as we saw it and drove it.  We are once again Happy Mustangers and love being members of the Shark Tooth Sports Car Club.

2023 Chevrolet Corvette (C8)

Our 2023 Rapid Blue Stingray hardtop convertible is our 7th Corvette. We really wanted a convertible with the great weather we have on the Sun Coast of Florida. So, we sold our 2021 Rapid Blue coupe (#6) and bought the convertible. The Corvette journey started with a 1996 Black coupe, then a 2002 Torch Red Z06, and a 2002 Torch Red convertible, (one for me and one for Sara). Then a Torch Red 2012 Grand Sport convertible, followed by a 2019 Arctic White Grand Sport convertible. After 5 Corvettes we went to a Mercedes SL550 but realized in a short 7 months we really had Corvette DNA.

…..and we really, really love #7!!!
