In 2003, the Amelia Island Concours hosted all five of the original Grand Sport Corvettes – three coupes and two roadsters.  It was a dreary day in Florida for this event, and it was raining so hard that they brought all of the cars into the ballrooms and parking garages of the hotel.  The Corvettes were one set of highlighted vehicles; the other was the Chaparral cars of Jim Hall (more on those soon!).  The Grand Sport has one of the prettiest engines in any race car, with the cross-ram Weber carbs sitting proudly atop the Chevy V-8.
