    That Long Beach Red is just stunning…

      Looks like it was a little cloudy outside when they took the pics. I wonder how this paint catches the sun on a sunny day. I’ll bet it’s fantastic.

  • TheBelltower

    When “design packages” just includes decals, then that’s pretty lame.

    • Pete Moss

      If you were an car enthusiast instead of a perpetual petulant pubescent constantly dissing and complaining you would understand the desire to have something unique and this is just one way of doing that and keeping the car stock.
      Now ‘NUMB NUTS” tell us which package is only decals.

      • TheBelltower

        You know, you’re right. I was completely mistaken. My bad.

        Paint and decals.

        • Pete Moss

          You really are thick………I can’t have a battle of wits with someone who is unarmed.

          • TheBelltower

            How original. The personal jabs just keep coming. You’re a true wordsmith.

          • Pete Moss

            Not original…just a put down for half-wits.

          • TheBelltower

            Don’t you have a Mensa meeting to attend tonight? No? Then perhaps the annual US Turf Association conclave, Mr. Moss? For someone who thinks so little of me, you sure are stuck to me like gum on a shoe.

          • Pete Moss

            I can be a real jerk when someone annoys me, and you annoy me. I wiil not attack you anymore, sorry for my criticism.
            I hope in return you will read the articles and comment appropriately with out twisting the facts.

      • Matt

        I’m sorry but you can be a car enthusiast without making your car look ridiculous. I think this looks ridiculous, decals are really pathetic. Just my opinion, but we all don’t have to agree with you as you don’t have to agree with me.

        • Pete Moss

          Decals are ridiculous, I never said anything about liking decals.Doesn’t anybody understand the context of what they read? Bellflower implied that the three design packages were decals only. The only item that could be a decal is the center stripe on the white car.

  • Matt

    This is looking very dated already. Not a classic design at all. That interior too, looks so old.

    • Mike

      You’ve apparently never seen one in person.

      • Matt

        Oh I’ve seen one. Looks cartoonish. Just my opinion though. If you like it then great but personally I think it looks old.

  • john1168

    I like the new Long Beach Red color too. I heard a rumor that they might get rid of the Night Race Blue Metallic. Very sad to hear that as it’s my favorite color. I like the new Z06 rims too. I wonder if there’s plans for a Corvette GS in the future? The new rims would look good on it along with a nice looking carbon fiber aero kit.
