Having seen it in person, the Kalahari goes extremely well with the AW. Very, very nice combo! Peanut butter is a very good description for the color. It photographs with orange in it, but in real life it doesn't appear that way when combined with the AW car. Good luck.

Thanks! What about the red calipers and silver painted wheels? Still good to go with AW and Kalahari?

Well there's one huge difference - You're EE while I went ME. The fact that you're in sales suggests you can capably talk to people. An EE with that ability is a rare find indeed.

I'm 29 but married w/ no kids. Been stuffing tons of money away for the last 4-5 years, so hopefully I'm just going through growing pains . . . I'll just keep on trucking and hopefully by 44, can have my garage filled the same.

Yes, congratulations on the C7. Nice collection. I'm surprised no one mentioned the GT40 till the third page. Very nice.

You mentioned that you don't track them because they're "too nice". It looks like you have the means to do a front bumper repaint if it gets bad. You're missing out on the best part of owning those beautiful cars.

Rob, you're probably right.

Believe it or not, I know some guys that have these cars and all they do is wax them.

I probably would enjoy tracking the cars, but I learned a long time ago that I'm not that great of a driver.....my friends still fight for the back seat!

I think it would be a great combination. Would like to see some pictures, though.
