Now get rid of the UGLY Laguna Blue on the 2014 Corvette (but wait until I get one to go with my ABM Camaro).
Lol...my sarcasm radar went off with this post.

I love my ABM....this blue would be the only color I'd 100% be happy to switch to!

If I had been paying attention instead of being so enamoured with the looks I would have had Chevy yank the 21s and replace with a similar looking 20 or 22.
they will be going in the garage and replaced with 20s soon enough.
Ugly is not an absolute.

From a pure aesthetics standpoint, the wheel matches the 45th color scheme. Dominant black 5 spoke with a red pinstripe to match the 45th rally stripe accents. I've been looking for a black/gunmetal wheel recently that i'll add a strip to. They also look like the concept wheels which I like.

Financially, bad decision.

Pretty much since the 2011 vert was introduced that's what's been used. It makes since since these cars are used in the 500 Festival Parade as well as driver/VIP laps right before the race. Easier to drop the top and sit people in the back.

2010 may very well end up being the last year the 5th Gen coupe had a Pace Car Z4Z package! I was hoping to see 50 - ZL1's here someday - not sure that will happen..

Like many I've figured that the new Stingray will be given pace car honors. But you know the day after the Z/28 unveil I was thinking what a great coming-out party pacing the Indy 500 would be for it, it is built for the race track right?

Nice idea Mike. Do the Stingray next year when you can have matching festival convs.

I dig the wheels! The paint and wheels to me are bomb! I want #1 but the $7K package is to much!

As one of the owners that ordered my car as soon as I could let me say if you don't have anything nice to say don't say anything at all. Lots more people love the color than hate it. I can tell you the number of times I have heard that they wish they would do that color on any Camaro. 2nd the price. 7k is not that bad for what you get. RS package, 21" wheels, ZL1 ground effects, stripe package, rear spoiler, grill, is all about 7k if you were to buy them that doesn't count the Gill stripes, painted engine cover, custom floor mats, black trim on dash and doors, Hot Wheel logos on fenders grill and deck lid, Hot Wheels door sills, Seats embroidered, red stitching on the seats and dash. And yes I'm just a big kid collecting Hot Wheels big and little. Keep up the good work Chevrolet!!!!!!!!
