The Grand Sport Registry has announced they will be sponsoring a special gathering of the 1996 Grand Sport Corvettes for the August 2006 Corvettes at Carlisle show. Organizers are hoping to assemble the largest gathering of the RPO Z16 Corvettes with a goal of 96 cars at the summer event. John Heinricy, the Chevrolet engineer considered by many as the father of the 1996 Grand Sport is planning on attending the event with his personal GS: VIN #001.
