    Where are the xlrs?

    Does anyone have the breakdown of where the 15000 plus xlrs were shipped, such as how many were shipped out of the usa? Of the number shipped to the usa, how many are still on the road and how many have been totaled? I would be interested to know how many to each state , if the information is available. Thanks, bob

    I've seen four or five roaming the streets in the real world.

    One was in Spokane WA of all places, in the winter.

    Re: Where are the xlrs?

    There are several databases on the production of these cars. Some show total production by option/color; some show import vs export; but nothing about where they are now nor their attrition.

    Now if you're interested in seeing the largest gathering of XLR's this year - be at Bolling Green, KY on July 14-16 for the Corvette Homecoming. There are over 30 to date that I know of that will be there and we're shooting for over 100. For those of you on the East Coast there will be a caravan of over a dozen at the Biltmore Estate (NC) on the 9-10th of April and on to Charleston, SC where we should pick up five or six more for the rest of the week.

    VETS AND XLR'S are made in Bowling Green. That's why they call it homecoming! One of the Vet Owners makes all the arrangements and plans. Nice of you to let him "tag along".

    Sorry, that was an inside joke between Bruce and I.

    I volunteered to be the "pulltoy" at one of the events.

    Besides mine the only one I've seen was coming out of the caddy service shop in Pasco WA. or a new one several years ago, same place! They do seem to hide but I guess if you are going to spend $80k on a car it will have a place to live away from the elements.

    Re: Where are the xlrs?

    I saw my first one on the street about a year ago. A couple of weeks ago I was cruising pacific coast highway in my black one and pulled up to a light at beach blvd. Beside a gold one, I turned the corner and there was a silver one.

    They might all be here in South Florida. I see them often around Boca Raton.

    PS: I drive a CTS-V but would love to add an XLR to the collection.

    "PS: I drive a CTS-V but would love to add an XLR to the collection."

    Be careful what you wish for Jay! Once I bought my XLR, my CTS-V hardly get driven!! (It's an '04 with 20k mi.) With both sporting platinum paint, they look great side by side in the garage. Now that XLR prices have dropped to the point where one in good shape is reasonable, why wait? I used to live in a little town of 7000, and drove up to a car wash where a guy was cleaning his XLR; it turned out he had an (idle) CTS-V in his garage as well! The CTS-V is fun to drive, but rarely gets a conversation started at the pump like the XLR frequently does. Rarity is a good thing sometimes. And on a sunny day or warm night with the top down. . . . you can't beat it!
