I haven't seen the color Crystal Red in person yet but to me it looks too much like Monterey Red. I really want GM to put a brighter metallic Red out there. I had a mustang 2002 GT that had "Laser RED" and it was such a nice color. Laser Red would look awesome on the C6! Put your Crystal Red pictures up here if you have them! Maybe it looks brighter in person.... :cheers:

Had a local detail er (Donovan's) do my 07 vic red vert with Zaino show car polish. I may be partial but it really looked great. I don't see how you can get more red than that.

I too have the Victory Red. I would have bought a brighter metallic red if they had one. I love the bright Reds but it seems so hard to keep the paint glossy. I wax it very often and it is always pretty clean but it scratchs so easy. I have flourescent lights in my garage and you can see EVERY little dull spot. I don't think I would have the time and energy to care for a color like black. I never had the dullness issues on my metallic red cars before.

Well I finally saw a convertible crystal red Vette. We had the guy park it next to magnetic red and the Crystal Red is darker but has more sparkle to it. I didn't bring my camera so I don't have any pictures to show but it's a cool color! You will start seeing them everywhere soon, 5 people in our club have the 08 color on the way!

Let's see..... We have had Magnetic, Monterey and now Crystal Red. What will GM call it in 09??? metallic fire red?:D

At the EWS show last week there were C6 Vettes in Mag Red, Crystal Red and Monterey Red. Mag is the brightest, Mont is the darkest and Crystal falls between them. I tried to get them parked next to one another for a photo, but I couldn't make it happen. Besides, it was too cloudy for a good picture. These metallic reds glow in the sun.

The best news I've heard is that we'll finally see a metallic red on a Z06. This is long overdue.

Didn't exactly break any sales records last time out, so they dropped it. I did see a Bowling Green metallic C5 at Carlisle yesterday, looked alright, I guess.

I have laser red on my Expedition, it is a great color. Bad part is that it fades easily. You're right, it would look nice on a Vette..... as would a dark gray matallic.....

I saw a C5 green coupe with tan interior a few years ago and thought it looked great. I never saw one before that. I'm more of a silver, gray, black and red guy, however I was impressed with how nice it looked.

I also remember the Polo Green C4. That looked great!

Red,
You have the color that should be brought back, spiral grey is a great color and would be perfect on a C6
