The Last Sting Ray

Anyone watch this on SPEED?

It was about the last '67 Sting Ray produced, how it was found and restored, and also gave a general history of the Corvette (over about 3 hours).

It got me thinking that somewhere, sitting on a dealer lot there might be "The Last New GTO", assuming the car wasn't "pulled" from the assembly line to be stashed somewhere or given to Bob Lutz or some other VIP at GM/Holden. The article here says it was shipped to the US after rolling off the line in mid-June.

My '06 has a build date of September '05. Anyone have a June '06 build date?

My Dad burned a disc of that show last night. Said it was great. As far as the last GTO is concerned, I believe it was purchased by a guy in Michigan. He's got it in storage.
