No Dates yet - NEW '08 BLUE COMINIG.....

Just got an interesting email regarding a new blue..
This is what was told to me...

"Lemans Blue will be built out. Mulsanne Blue will replace it for 2008 Per the Corvette black book, Mulsanne blue was used in 1970 and 1971 and appears close to Nassau blue of the c5 era"

Once GM makes it official, we will let you know.

Until then...I love LeMans Blue - get 'em ordered! (with me!)

thanks Gary for the pic!

Conti man, I'm with you, I love the current blue. I'd love to see this new color added, but as a replacement?

Lemans Blue is muscular, and to me, aside from electron blue, the best blue to suit the agressive lines of the Corvette. We'll have to see what it looks like once they start rolling out, but I have my reservations...

I want them to bring back Aztec Gold!!!!

But since they'll never do that I'll just stick to agreeing with Sheriff on this. The Muls-whatever blue is okay, but the LeMans Blue is awesome.

"appears close to Nassau blue of the c5 era".

Yeah, and we all now how well that one went over. Bringing back that color makes as much sense as giving the F55 cars the SHITTY drilled rotor option.

Doesn't look bad but it should be a low production, high price tintcoat.

Why,"not funny" ?

Did you get in trouble with GM for posting the orange pic before it's official release?

If it's none of our business....I understand and will drop it.
