(For any Canadians tempted to hop on their healthcare high horse right now, the procedure was done in California.)
Like a baby hearing its mother's voice via hearing aid for the first time and subsequently attending a rock concert, Schickerowski got his driver's license at the age of 44 (passing the test on his first try, no less) and bought himself a bright yellow C7 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport, as he puts it, "sight unseen." The Grand Sport pairs the body, suspension, and aero parts from the Z06 with the naturally aspirated LT1 from the regular Stingray, and it's rightfully considered the sweet spot of the C7 Corvette lineup.
