GM SUPPLIER LEVEL DISCOUNTS ON BRAND NEW CORVETTE GRAND SPORTS
Grand Sport Registry Membership Benefits
While our emphasis is and will continue to be on the 1963, 1996, 2010-2013, and 2017+ Grand Sports, GSR Membership is open to all Corvette enthusiasts. Grand Sport or Corvette ownership is certainly encouraged but not required. Check out these benefits and then Join the GSR today!
Through the courtesy of not one, but TWO sponsoring Chevrolet dealerships, GSR Members may order any new Corvette Grand Sport at or below the level of SUPPLIER PRICING. This typically equates to an overall discount of between 6.5% to 7.5%. You must be a bonafide GSR Member (the dealerships will verify your eligibility with the GSR) and you must go through the specified Program Coordinators. See the Supplier Pricing Info in the GSR Members Only Section of the GSR website for full details. This is a limited time offer and may be withdrawn at any time.
The GSR Membership Badge is very distinctive and rates high on the "cool" factor. Featuring the ever present hashmarks, the screen printed plastic badge includes your name, GS # (if applicable), city and state. And no pins to poke holes in shirts or clips to break as our badges feature a handy magnetic back. Annual memberships include one badge. Lifetime memberships include a badge for yourself and spouse, both with prominent "LIFETIME" markings. Replacement or additional badges are available through the GSR Store.
STATIC CLING WINDOW DECAL
Of course, you are proud of your Grand Sport (as you are of ANY Corvette) and you'll want to tell the world you are also a proud member of the GSR. You'll receive a static cling window decal featuring the Grand Sport Registry logo. Lifetime GSR Members get a special "LIFETIME MEMBER" decal and lapel pin, too. Extra decals are available through the GSR Store (free for Lifetime Members). Order extras for your other vehicles. Put one on your minivan! At least it will be cool in that respect.
GRAND SPORT LIFETIME MEMBER LAPEL PIN
Exclusive to GSR Lifetime Members, one of these specially designed lapels pin is included in each Lifetime Member Welcome Packet. Additional pins for a spouse/significant other may be purchased through the GSR Store.

SPECIAL ACCESS TO EVENTS
The GSR supports the NCM! How about you?
At a recent Concours d'Elegance event at Amelia Island in Florida, we arranged some very special concessions for our members to get them "up close and personal" with the five original 1963 Grand Sport Corvette race cars. In a later event, we arranged a private tour of the famous Collier Collection in Naples, Florida, of antique and racing automobiles (including an original 63 GS). More recently, we attended the Vettes on the Rockies show in Colorada and the Woodward Dream Cruise in Michigan. You never know where we might turn up so make plans now to join us at our next big GSR event!
GRAND SPORT CORRAL PARKING
At most national and larger regional events, we will organize Grand Sport ONLY Parking Corrals for our members. These corrals are usually intended for Grand Sports only to maintain a visual impact. But at the discretion of the individual event organizers, GSR members driving other Corvettes may usually park at one end of our corrals (not intermixed with the Grand Sports) given space is available. At some events we'll have a canopy with tables and chairs and some cold soft drinks to share with our members and often some special GSR-only awards or prizes, too. We're always a fixture at events such as The Gathering at the National Corvette Museum in May, Corvettes at Carlisle in August, and Mid America's Corvette Funfest in September, so look for us. We're usually not that hard to spot!
GSR EMAIL LIST
The GSR provides an email discussion list for members and the public to exchange information, tech tips, etc. Unlike some other lists, we try to avoid all the "fluff" by keeping the content specific to Corvettes and the Grand Sport. Sign up today.
The old GSR Forum has been taken offline due to lack of use and a few technical difficulties. But a brand NEW, fully updated GSR Forum is comming soon! While many GSR Members enjoy the GSR Email List because it is fast and convenient, the new GSR Forum will provide easy access to archived Grand Sport and Corvette information on all sorts of topics plus a new photo gallery! We hope to install the new Forum software and get it up and running soon so stay tuned for the announcement!

While our emphasis is and will continue to be on the 1963, 1996, 2010-2013, and 2017+ Grand Sports, GSR Membership is open to all Corvette enthusiasts. Grand Sport or Corvette ownership is certainly encouraged but not required. Many of us have established lifelong friends through the GSR and getting together during the year is like a family reunion, but a heckuva lot more fun.

In fact, we like to think that GSR Membership is "More fun than you can shake a dead skunk at!"
