Originality. Its a proven fact that people will always pay more for originality.
No matter how you slice it, when you try to sell your ZL1 10 years down the road and it is painted Bright Blue Purple Metallic, they will be able to run the trim codes and see it was originally Victory Red.
You can bet everytime you are going to have to come WAY down on your selling price when all you would of had to do is keep the car original.

Just my two cents but I wish others would chime on this logic and I would like to hear professionals on this advice as well. It might make me wanna paint mine ABM after all. Its not a money issue with me at all.
Its a "Left the factory" this way issue with me when it comes to my ZL1.
If money is not an issue, then paint the car the way you really wanted it.
With today's production volume I highly doubt the new ZL1 will get the collector's car status like the 69 ones.

End of the day, the ZL1 is just a special edition volume production car.

Plus, while the 69 ZL1 seems like it's worth a lot today, you have to factor in the CPI numbers between 1969 and today, after you do that it really didn't appreciate that much.

If you are already planning on investing in your happiness by buying a 50K+ car, then why don't you invest a little more and make yourself real happy by having a dream car in a dream color?

Sometimes investing in your happiness is more important than investing in profit.

I want a ZL1 in Rally Yellow and some small cosmetic mods to make it more like the T3 movie car
(movie stripes in hydro carbon, hydro carbon for some of the body parts, Jay Leno hood, and a rear vent cut)

I will call it Super Bee
