Default We have the color palet for C7.. What was your favorite Vett color of all time?

I loved Marina Blue. IMO that would be terrific on the new Stingray.

MARINA BLUE

really? was there a bad color? I loved them all. I remember in the mid sixties trying to decide. If a white one came by, I thought, thats the best color. Until I saw the blue, with the black stinger on the hood. On and on it went. Every color is good.

You're very close, but I like Fathom Green from the '69 Stingray...

There were some pretty awful colors during the C3 era, like brown and beige

A lot of the two-tone C1s looked very nice.

As a C6 LMB owner I think and prefer the 'darker' blues...no blue post LMB has IMHO character like the darker blues soooo I really like the C4 Admiral Blue and the C6 LMB

With what I said there will be a lot of opinions about the various blues and I respect each view as what blue is best...how boring it would be with all blues being the same

I love my C6 LeMans Blue with Cashmere interior. LMB is a classic I would love to see make a comeback.
