Default Buying a C6 - need help with color...

If you were looking for a clean, previously owned C6, say 2009 on up, and you wanted a masculine color, which would you choose?

Obviously Carlisle Blue would be out of the question.

Real man colors only please.

Begin...

And automatics are definitely out of the question no matter what color car you have.

A pink manual trumps a black auto..

Wait...what about Blade Silver with an M6 rather than the girly stick auto?

Buy the color that YOU like... but you might find a good deal low mileage in a color that is not your first choice. That is what happened to me. I like most of the Vette colors except Black and Dark Blue.

But most guys say that Black, and Dark Blue, are the most manly colors.

Hmmm, that pink butterfly looks pretty menacing.

Maybe the guy owned a $600k Lambo?

To those guys, a Corvette isn't a sports car.

Ok on White, but it sounds a little too virginny to me.

Gotta run, I'll be back later.

More colors please.

All Corvettes are RED.

Real men drive any color they like, but just remember, "All Corvette's are RED the rest are Mistakes".

Your thread got me thinking about more than just colors. Do real men drive narrow body base cars or wide bodies, convertibles or coupes???

And what's wrong with Carlisle Blue? If this isn't manly enough for you I'd say your not very secure in your sexuality. And BTW, it's an auto too!

Real men don't even entertain asking such a insecure question such as this.........

A car's color doesn't make it any more or less manly.
But the driver & any added personal touches will!
