Heinricy worked closely with the GM design studio, engineering team, and Bowling Green Assembly Plant to produce 1,000 specially serial-numbered Grand Sports. Total production was 190 convertibles and 810 coupes. Each car was fitted with special paint (Admiral Blue with a white stripe), along with the one-year-only, 330hp LT4 engine and a six-speed manual transmission. Heinricy also told the story of how he was able to purchase Grand Sport #001 from a Michigan dealer. He even brought this historic Corvette to the Gathering and autocrossed it on Saturday. (Not surprisingly, he won.)

The museum also hosted scenic tours, track events, and other fun-filled diversions throughout the weekend, much to the delight of the participants. If, like us, you have an abiding appreciation for the fourth-generation Corvette and its many contributions the marque's history, we heartily recommend attending next year's C4 Gathering.
