    1. Q: I don't own a Grand Sport Corvette. Can I still join the GSR?

    A: Of course! Let's face it, not everyone can own one of the limited edition 1996 or world-class C6 Grand Sport Corvettes, let alone one of the original multi-million dollar 1963 GS factory race cars. But you don't have to own one of these very special Corvettes to share in the excitement. While our obvious focus is the Grand Sport, owners and enthusiasts of all other regular production Corvettes are welcome here. All it takes is a deep appreciation for the marque and Zora's legend... a legend reborn in the GSR! Click here for a GSR membership application.

    2. Q: Why should I join the GSR?

    A: If you own a Grand Sport Corvette or are a GS enthusiast, the GSR is *the* place to be. Besides obvious member benefits such as discounts in our online GSR Store and from most Corvette parts and accessories vendors, GSR membership allows you to exchange information with other GS enthusiasts which helps you maximize your enjoyment out of these very special Corvettes. We think you'll find the GSR to be something special and if you become active, you're sure to make some lifelong friends here. Come join us! Click here for a list of membership benefits.

    3. Q: What does it cost to join?

    A: Current family membership fees are $35.00 through the end of the current calendar year or $50.00 through the end of the next calendar year. Renewals are discounted as long as you renew before your current membership expires. All regular memberships include one membership badge, window decal, and 10% discount in the GSR Store. Lifetime Memberships are $300.00 and include Lifetime membership badges for you and your spouse, Lifetime window decals, a GS lapel pin, and 15% discount in the GSR Store. US military veterans are eligible for a special discount on GSR Lifetime Memberships. Click here for a GSR membership application.

    4. Q: Do I need to buy a separate membership for my spouse?

    A: All GSR Memberships are considered FAMILY Memberships. A single membership is valid for both you and your spouse/significant other. Except for Lifetime Memberships, only one badge is included with each membership but you may order an additional badge for your spouse at the time join or later through the online GSR Store.

    When you join the GSR, the "Primary Member" is considered the individual whose name is listed first on the membership application and only one email address is designated as your GSR Registered Email Address. This is the only email address the system will recognize when trying to identify you as a member so always keep the GSR advised of any changes to your email address and other contact information.

    5. Q: So what's all this about Skunks and Stinkers?

    A: C'mon... have you never seen a 1996 Grand Sport? Get it? Big white stripe running right down the middle? Enthusiasts have long referred to these special Corvettes as "Skunks" and their owners as "Stinkers" and it is rumored that even the C6 & C7 Grand Sports have a "skunk stripe" painted in primer before the color coat goes on. Besides, we think there's a little "Stinker" in all GS owners!

    6. When does my GSR Membership expire?

    A: All memberships, except GSR Lifetime, of course, expire at the end of the calendar year. You may determine your membership expiration date via the GSR Membership Roster (in the Members Only section) or the "Forgotten Password" utility found on the GSR Home Page. You may renew your membership or upgrade to Lifetime status at a reduced rate at any time before your current membership expires. After that, you will have to rejoin at the new member rate.

    7. Help! I lost my GSR Members Only password!

    A: No worries. Use the "Forgotten Password" utility found on the GSR Home Page. Just enter the email address you used when you joined the GSR and our database will email you the GSR Members Only password, your membership status/expiration date, discount code, and other information. Note that if you enter an email address other than the one you first registered with the GSR, the system will not recognize you and consider you a non-member. This is because the GSR Members Database only allocates one email address per membership. If you need assistance, or wish to change your GSR registered email address, contact the GSR atinfo@grandsportregistry.com.

    8. Help! I lost my GSR Forum/Photopost password!

    Sorry, both the GSR Forum and GSR Photopost (GSR Photo Gallery) are currently offline due to software incompatabilities with our current system. We are working on locating and installing suitable replacements for these utilities and hope to have them in place soon. In the meantime, make use of the GSR Email Discussion List. Thanks for your patience! Back to Top

    9. Q: I enjoy the GSR Email List, but my inbox is overflowing! How can I reduce the messages I receive and yet still stay in touch?

    A: Normally, the GRAND SPORT REGISTRY Email Discussion List (or GSR-L, driven by the NCM ListServ) sends out messages to its subscribers as soon as it receives them. This is known as the Traditional Email Mode and is the GSR-L's default arrangement, and frankly, it's the one most prefer as it provides the most immediate response. If you that feel your inbox is overflowing with email from the GSR Email Discussion List, however, you should try the HTML INDEX mode. In this mode, you will typically only get a single email from the list per day with a hyperlinked list of all that day's individual posts arranged by subject. If interested in any given post, just click on the link to read and/or reply to the message online. HTML INDEX mode allows you to quickly scan the topics available, read those of interest and ignore the others while keeping your inbox more manageable. Sweet!

    If you currently subscribe to the GSR Email List, you can switch over to HTML INDEX mode by simply sending an email to LISTSERV@LISTSERV.CORVETTEMUSEUM.COM with the words:

    SET GRAND-SPORT HTML INDEX

    in the body of the email. You can leave the subject line blank.

    You can always switch back to Traditional Email Mode with the command:

    SET GRAND-SPORT NODIGEST

    If you are NOT currently subscribed to the GSR Email List, you must JOIN the list first to try HTML INDEX mode. Visit the Grand-Sport List Options page to join or leave the list, or change delivery options.

    10. I switched over to INDEX mode for the GSR Email List, but now it asks for a ListServ password when I try to read messages. Why?

    This is a somewhat technical issue involving "cookies" (information stored on your PC to be shared on a network). Fortunately, this issue does not effect most INDEX mode users but if you ever see a dialog box like this asking for your LISTSERV Password, see below for the fix.


    Follow this link to establish a ListServ password of your choosing:

    http://maillist.corvettemuseum.com/cgi-bin/wa.exe?GETPW1=ACTMGR1%3DGRAND-SPORT

    If you have cookies enabled on your machine, you should be able to access the email list without ever having to login again. Of course, if it doesn't work, we can always switch you back to regular mode.

    11. What is the difference between DIGEST and INDEX modes for the GSR Email List?

    Both are similar methods meant to reduce inbox clutter from the GSR Email List. DIGEST sends an entire day's worth of messages as attachments in a single email while INDEX (HTML version) sends hyperlinks to the previous day's messages. Click here for a full description of all the various DIGEST and INDEX mode options available to GSR-L subscribers.

    12. How can I read old GSR Email List messages I may have missed?

    Current subscribers to the GSR Email List can search the GSR Archives, Post to the GSR List, and Change Settings through our GSR Archives page at http://maillist.corvettemuseum.com/archives/grand-sport.html.

    13. Why did vendor "XYZ" deny giving me a GSR discount when I tried to place an order with them?

    As explained in your GSR Welcome Email and in the Members Only Section of the GSR website, the GSR has arranged a discount with most of the major Corvette parts and accessories vendors... BUT you must place your order through the GSR by emailing info@grandsportregistry.com, not by calling the vendor directly!

    Discounts typically run 10-15% excluding sale and clearance items. To order, email the GSR at info@grandsportregistry.com with the vendor name, part number, item description, retail price, and any other necessary details and we will attempt to place the order for you (min. order $100, please). The vendor will drop ship the item directly to you and the GSR will invoice you for the total plus the vendor's shipping charges.

    And don't forget to check our own online GSR Store first to make sure we don't already list the item you are interested in at an even better price!
