Well. New to me. My third generation of Vette owned. Really enjoying it.

Thanks. Don't know yet my plans on this one. It's going to be a weekend driver and will live in the garage most of the time. Tinting sounds like a good idea and would offset the white well.
Thought about painting the calipers but not sure red would be a good choice. Red might help add a nice contrast with the White too. Good idea on the tint.

I've got limo tint in the back and legal 15% UV on the sides. I think it helps the look of the base model. I've seen a few white Vettes with tint and they look great.

Looks damned good man. I think you have me convinced now that I see yours. Many thanks.

I've seen a lot of 6's with that wire mesh grill. I've got to say it goes really well with the white.

Man! That is "in your face" when it's parked in your driveway.

I really love the white.

Looks great in white. You just don't see too many white Vettes these days.

Nice purchase.
