Inferno Orange is the color for old fogies

like me, according to the LA Times.

http://www.latimes.com/business/auto...0,134496.story

The paper edition, (not what's in the electronic version ) says ,"Youth, Power, in Inferno Orange" So its a Vette. The IOM Camaro isn't chopped liver.

I read the article and didn't get the connection between IOM and old age, but I guess I'm an old fogey too......

The hard copy header (I live in LA) said:

"Youth, power in Inferno Orange.
The blazing fast Corvette Z06 can make boomers forget their advancing age."

" Looking down at the car's fuel economy was, however, a buzz kill. I was averaging 13.5 miles per gallon"

Driving an $85,000 Z06 and a buzz kill is the mpg ?!

What a fool.

I did not see "fogey" connection - it was actually making connection between Z06 and older drivers / mid life crisis I thought - and it just so happened that the review car was "fire bomb" orange

I could CARE LESS what a MEDIA paper says.

MOST things the MEDIA tries to BRAINWASH people with

is EVIL CRAP.

IOM is SO BEAUTIFUL. I would buy it AGAIN if everybody

hated it.

Didn't mean to offend anyone

My wife who is 68, walked in and handed me the article and said, "I am your trophy wife, don't get any ideas". We have an IOM 2SS/RS on order that should arrive this weekend.

Every IOM or RY camaro I see is either driven by a woman (V6) or an old guy (V8 IOM).
