Announcement: If someone's trying to sell you a "50th Anniversary Edition
Corvette" and it doesn't look like one of the above cars (Anniversary Red paint,
shale interior, 50th fender badges, 50th embroidery on the seats, champagne
painted wheels), it's not a real Anniversary Edition Corvette. 2003 was the 50th
anniversary year. 2003 Corvettes are commonly called "Anniversary Corvettes," but
most of them are not "Anniversary Edition Corvettes." They aren't the same. All
2003 Corvettes have a "50th Anniversary" hood emblem, but they had to be ordered
with the Anniversary Edition package to get the special color, badging, and
options. There are no Anniversary Edition Z06es. There are no black, white,
silver, gray, blue, yellow, or torch red AEs. No AEs came with black, oak, red,
or gray interiors. If someone's trying to sell you a car that doesn't look like
the above, and telling you to look up prices for 2003 50th Anniversary Edition
Corvette rather than a standard 2003 coupe, convertible, or Z06, they're trying
to scam you. Buyer beware.
We placed an order for a brand new 2003 50th Anniversary Edition Corvette Convertible.

UPDATE 9/30: We just found out that our car was sequenced on September 29 and will come off the line on Wednesday, October 9! Many thanks to Bob Breeding at the Bowling Green Assembly Plant for the information. This gentleman goes above and beyond to make sure customers feel that they and their cars are special and appreciated. Thanks Bob!
UPDATE 10/10: (it was
a day early...)

UPDATE 10/21: Right on schedule! We picked it up this afternoon! It is soooooo cool! More updates later... right now we're just going to go enjoy it!
Here are the specs:
All this was possible through the efforts of Ludwig at THE VETTE NET (http://www.thevettenet.com). The local dealers wanted $5,000 - $15,000 over MSRP for this car. Ludwig was able to hook us up with a dealer who wanted $500 under MSRP. If you're looking for a new or used Corvette, definitely give them a try!
