No curb rash on those wheels. Maybe your seeing the wheel weights on the outside.
When the opportunity to own this car came up in 2007 it was completely by surprise. I had not seen a ZR-1 since 1990 when I lived in California. Low in behold it was the owner of the Machine shop that I worked for that had it. He was 68 years old at the time and weighed 400lbs and said he could not fit in it. And that it was just not comfortable plus he needed the room in his garage. He bought it three years earlier from a guy in Tampa Bay Florida. He said that he would sell it to me if I wanted it. So one evening after work I walked into his office with two bottles of Ruffino Oro Italian Chianti wine 2001 vintage. And we drank and negotiated on a price for three hours. We decided on $22,500 for it. It's a decision that I've never regretted. This is the original window sticker of what the original owner paid for it in 1990.
I joined the Corvette owners club of Houston which consisted of 350 members. And out of them only about 5 new what a ZR-1 was. I always felt like an outsider in the 5 years that I was a member of the club. It was the only C4 ZR-1 in the club. So eventually I left the club. I liked to race my car and go to the drag strip and race it. The club members were much older than me and were afraid to get their cars dirty. It just wasn't a good fit. So I just became a loner and only hung out with other ZR-1 guys that I had become good friends with in the Houston area. Oh and although I don't do this stuff anymore in the car here is an old video of me on westpark toll road one saturday morning very early seeing what the car was made of.
