Default Effingham, IL - Corvette Show

Well I seen my first C6 on Sunday and I must say AWESOME!! The Machine Silver coupe they had in the Museum was jaw dropping and it didn't even have the polished wheels or Z51 package.

First Impressions:

1) Looks so different from pictures.
2) Front "face" doesn't look cheesy like some say. Kinda Evil.
3) Back view is awesome.
4) Center Console "silver plastic" looks just fine and not cheap.
5) IMO "I seen a mag red" and it didn't look as sharp as the silver.


Order # HKWSH3
Can someone give me an update; TPW of today; do I have VIN or Seq# yet?..

I have seen C6 in most all the colors and the best two are Blue and Silver hands down. I would like to see a Silver/Red combo I think this would be the best choice for a "sporty" look.

What is a "sporty" look? Would black exterior with ebony interior qualify?

GM also had a blue C6 convertible with grey interior and a grey top at Funfest. That was a very sporty look, too.
