Why no Hugger orange???

If you show a concept with a certain color you should always have that color available as an option...the challenger did it...heck i remember the eclipse even came out with the same color as their concept a few years ago....

when the vert is out will there be a color available just like the vert concept because that inferno orange is just not going to cut it....

Maybe when you can buy a vert you can get it in that color..... Until dec 09 you cant get a vert.... Something to think about....

The concept convertible is not Hugger Orange.

Hugger Orange does not have any metallic in it..the concept has 'pearl' in it....and is also a showcar paint job ....

Inferno Orange is close.

My daddy told me..."There's never a better paint job than the factory paint job."

does he work at a factory? orange peel sucks...



tho as for the Hugger Orange... maybe they are saving it for the Z28....

whatya think Scott? wouldnt that be a bad@$$ way to set the Z28 (when it comes out, not if) apart, to offer it with the Hugger Orange option, so everyone knows whos the big daddy on the block?

idk. like i said orange peel sucks, and 90% of vehicles coming off the line today come from the factory with it.

Here's the point...Take 2 new identical cars, strip and repaint one, leave the other alone. Put both outside for 20 years. Factory paint wins.

not necessarily. how much you spending on the paint? what type of paint you using? who's painting it?

My question is, when I order my convertible, will GM offer the 'red line' wheels to go with it.
