Thanks for the info.
It does seem that most buyers want the shinier wheels.
I don't see many Corvettes with Competition Grey wheels on the lots.
My '84 Z28 was silver with charcoal stripes and rocker panels and it had graphite wheels with machine faced edges. I loved it, but when the dealer bought the car back from me for $10,500 they ended up selling it for $8990. A hard sell in 1985 and I guess a hard sell in 2012 for a lot of people.
