Gonzales tells us that he has always had a love affair with
Americas only sports car. A few years ago he purchased a Centennial
Edition C6 and actually thought that it would be his last
Corvette. Greg viewed his C6 as the perfect street machine that
could not be improved upon.
presumption was severely challenged during a visit to his local Chevy
dealership. During a routine oil change for his beloved C6
he decided to to take a walk around the dealership. That was Greg's
first mistake because he spotted a brand new 2017 Grand Sport C7.
The beauty had as special Heritage Z07 LT3 package and was adorned is
in Admiral Blue. The car was equipped with every available option and
was screaming to Greg to take her home.
tells us that he fought the urge to buy her as best as he could. He
likened it to being single and running in to the woman of your dreams
in the perfect place and at the perfect time. It was just too
much for him to walk away from. Greg consoled himself by assuming
that the dealer would put an unattainable price tag on the GS. Greg
made an offer and drove off assuming that he had no chance of getting
the car. The next day Greg got a call from the dealer
telling him to come on down and pick up the car. It just happened to be
Greg's birthday, hey why not give yourself a nice present.
did a great job in equipping the car with every conceivable
option. The car was nice but Greg knew he could improve it.
The first thing Greg did to improve the overall look of the GS was to
swap out the stock rubber and wheels. Continental Extreme Contact
tires and a set of XO Verona wheels fit the new image very nicely.
Getting rid of the noisy stock RFT's improved the ride.
cars exterior paint was encased in Xpel protective wrap and
sealed with a nano ceramic coating. We did a comparison test on nano
coatings , the stuff is outstanding.

from ACS Composite that included a GS front and rear splashguard kit.
Also part of the package was an ACS rear four fin diffuser kit in
the hood Greg replaced the stock throttle body with a Katech CNC Ported
unit that Ihe hand polished to a mirror finish. An AFE cold air intake
provided some extra breathing. Carbon Fiber plenum, valve and fuse
box covers abd custom painted fuel rail and air bridge covers really
update the under hood look.
A custom tune was installed via a Diablo Sport Intune I2.

the perfect backdrop to this drop dead gorgeous machine.
