Victory Red - So So

For the VR crowd.....


I know that color is very personal and subjective, with that said I may tweak some in the VR camp with this..............but hey that's what free speech is about.

Saw the VR in person for the first time, car looks great but not really wild about the red color. It just doesn't pop for me. Kinda of an inbetween red not bright and not blood red. Has a slight washed out or milky appearance to me.

Just my 2 cents.

My 2007 Z06 is victory red. Believe me, when this baby hits the light, the only word to describe it is POP.

I think the cream white paint in the showroom is reflecting off the paint and ruining the color for you. Tell them to take the thing outside on a sunny day, and the color pops like crazy.

And I'm not even getting an SS in red 'cuz I like blue better. I just know my Bro's colorado looks great and it's VR.

yup, this is why I went to several dealers lots to look at the colors in the sunlight. It makes a world of difference.

These guys are right, you really gotta see that color outside. Also check out the photos of happy delivered cars. The DAVIS car made me wish I had ordered red.

All of these Camaro colors are chosen with Pop in mind.......other then IOM I have seen all of the colors on other GMs.........every single one of them is a jaw dropper when clean and polished, sitting in direct sunlight ! even the IOM was awesome in the convention center lighting ! Especially the ABM.....

It is not worth it to even attempt to enjoy the 2010 Camaro colors in an indoor lighting situation.......whatever colors are close by or whatever the theme colors in the room is will directly effect the color on the car!

I see the other colors and think, damn I should change my order to ABM or Black or IOM or SIM etc. I'm going to stick with my first love...VR.

I wonder how close VR is to my Liquid Red? In direct sunlight, it'll burn your eyes! VR looks good on the Camaro.
