Honestly Rick,

You put a killer gold theme on that color and you could probably sell 20 within the Washington Redskins' organization. That's a diehard Hoggett color, very classy to boot.

IMO, just like Montery and Mag, you gotta see the color in person in bright light to see the pop. The first Monterey I saw was on a Trailblazer I rented in SF to drive to Sonoma. Was cloudy and rainy the entire trip. Hated the dark, flat looking marroon color. Then saw Monterey at a dealership on a bright, sunny day. So I ordered one =>

Wow, that's very nice. Much better than I expected. The wifes fav vette color in Monterey red.

Edit: Hold on. Those look like '07 wheels on the pic above the "other red" car. What gives? They did diccontinue those wheels for '08, correct? And this is a new color for '08.

God, those 08 wheels are ugly! Rick can you line all three red vettes up and snap a pic for us and post it?:thumbsup: I'm sure that's the only way we'll be able to compare, for us lazy guys of course. Just think if you do that then you won't loose any business cause we won't have to go down to the dealer and see it/tempted by it in person.

It would be a challenge to line them all up so that the light hits each one the same way to a stationary observer. JMHO

Crystal Red looks fantastic to me.

I actually like the new solid wheel design on that one. I prefer the look of polished to chrome, but it's just personal preference.

Hey Rick, whatever happened with the C6R-like wheel option GM released last year? I remember it only came in coupe/verte sizes and not in the larger Z06 wheel size. Is it still an option?
