My hat's off to OP. Great job covering every possible angle and in different parts of the day/evening. Very helpful. They both qualify as "Ed Red", a color that I have driven since 1975. My photo album has my first Camaro, a 1995. It was called Medium Patriot Red that year.

Before anyone judges one of the two colors, I suggest you go find a CRT Chevy and see it for yourself before making a decision. My personal opinion (which I already know some people here will disagree with ) CRT blows RJT out of the water, but that's mostly because I like a candy-apple red over burgundy. Regardless, they're both great colors
The OP Totally agrees with everything you just said...

I agree with most of your post, but CRT doesn't "blow" RJT out of the water. Do I like it better than RJT? Yes slightly, but it isn't a world of difference and not that much better. CRT looks much better in the shade, but I like RJT better in the sun.

I was just talking to a couple friends the other day about the two colors. I was saying that if I still have my car in a few years then I'm going to have it painted CRT.

Nah... it's too close for that... but I am leaning toward CRT for the ZL... I really liked the way it pops in the sunlight...

Either one looks very sharp - and that Corvette with the black wheels looks especially stunning!!
What I was going to say, agreed.

The rjt seems more subdued to me. I like both, but i think i like the crt a bit more. both look fantastic though!
