30 Years of Callaway Corvettes - Special Exhibit opens @ NCM January 13th, 2017

CALLAWAY CORVETTES
JANUARY 13, 2017 – MAY 5, 2017
A celebration of 40 years of Callaway Cars and 30 years of the Callaway Corvette, an engineering company that is known for its modification of Chevrolet cars, the Corvette sport cars in particular, especially their twin-turbo package that became a Chevrolet RPO (factory option) and their record breaking Corvette, known as The Sledgehammer.

Callaway vehicles planned for display are the very first Callaway B2K Corvette (#1987-001), significant milestone models, including the 1988 Callaway Sledgehammer, Series I and Series II Speedsters, LM-bodied variants, Development cars, Callaway C12 and C16 models, Supercharged C6 and C7 powerhouses, including the latest from Callaway - the SC757 Z06

Also on display will be several bits of automobile from the company's 40-year history.

Stay tuned for images and further details from the opening of this monumental exhibit - and be sure to check it out during your next visit to the National Corvette Museum.

For details on the cars on display or to get into a Callaway of your own, please drop us a note:

How long will the display be at the NCM? Hopefully it will still be there during the Bash!

Thank you to everyone who's checked out this thread and is as excited as we are about this special display of Callaway Corvettes.

I'll be at the National Corvette Museum this week on Monday and Tuesday, and if in the area, please drop by and say hello. I'd enjoy meeting folks from the forum and talking Corvettes - especially 30 Years of Callaway Corvettes.

If able to make it to the NCM, drop a note to say when:

Great pics, thanks.

Seeing the packaging of the turbo on the Sledgehammer, makes me wonder why that wasn't adopted for all B2K cars?

anybody?

The turbos are on the same place, the intercoolers however are different. My understanding was that Chevrolet limited the changes that could be made to the hood.

Additionally that would have been way to labor intensive to produce.
