Reeves of Callaway Cars fame and I go way back to the time in 1986 when we made the decision to go for a naturally aspirated 4 cam engine (the LT5). We shared with Reeves the work we had done up to that point to develop a twin turbo Corvette. Reeves took this and made it his own, producing the Callaway Twin Turbo Corvette. This lead to the 250 + mph Sledge Hammer and an ongoing series of Callaway Corvettes, the latest being the C16.
