Default C3 picture threads, by color!

I wan to compile a list of links to threads for specific colors of our C3s, broken down by color. I have seen this done on many other car forums, and the Admin's make it a sticky, so it is easy to find. I cannot tell you if this have been done before because the 'Search' function appears to not be working. I know there is a pictures section of this forum, but its not broken down by color, and there are alot more pictures in threads, than there is there.

So, if we can get this make a sticky, GREAT! If not, oh well. If you have a link to a thread for a specific color, please post up and I will add it to the list.

NOTE: Please refrain from posting pictures of your car in this thread. Either post it in the appropriate thread, or create a new one for your color. Thank you.

The Yellow/Gold thread Indy found, and the currently empty Multi-Colored Vette thread have been added.

What, no love for the Blue?!

Hey Guys, this sounds like a good idea. This should really cut down on repeated posting and threads.

I ran it by some other mods and they liked it too.

Just some suggestions:

-I will probably go through this thread and clean it up, taking out a lot of unnecessary posting.

-Ill also go through some of the linked threads that are posted here and clean those up as well.

-if we could avoid "quoting" posts that contain multiple pictures within threads to keep from re-posting the same photos over and over, we wont waste bandwidth. (obviously some specific quoting is relevant to a response)

-Ill let the OP decide how he wants to organize the threads he links... i.e., combining silver/grey... orange/bronze... other colors not linked... whatever you want to do.

Just trying to cut down on the clutter is all. Really, once this is complete, all you really need is the first post though.

VetteBuyer,

Thanks for the help in this also! If the remaining color threads are not found or created by tonight, I think I will just go ahead and make them. Really suprised there is not a thread for blue yet. Also thinking of creating a "Dear god, what have you done to your car" thread, for people to post up any pictures of Corvettes that have offended the car gods.

But yeah, if you could just clean things up a bit in the picture threads like the quoting of pics that would be great. i would not pull out all the conversation because some of the posts without pics still has good info like the name of colors, or other helpful tidbits of info

Cool thread idea.

I hope this picture downloads.
Picture showed up, but do you think you could post this in the Green C3 thread in the link in the original post? Trying to keep pictures off this thread, this is just to collect links to threads for different colored cars.

Thanks

How about MEDIUM SADDLE METALLIC?
It was option 67L in 1975 and there were 3403 cars painted with various interior options. I don't think that color was available in any other year.
If I can figure out how to get a picture posted, other than in the CF album, I'll do it.

Updated the OP with new ones that have been posted. Sorry for the delay, I have been on deployment with limited internet access over the last two months.
