Sorry to hear about your loss bro, that was a beautiful C5. The good news is that the waters only got your car and you made it out OK. The Vette can be replaced with some dedicated time, searching and good old fashioned luck.

Sorry to hear brother, one of the cleaner C5ís on the forum. Any thoughts on keeping the C5 with a branded title?

Beautiful C7, youíll love it! Have had mine for almost 2 years now and absolutely love it.

Thanks Pete, you've always been positive input on here. I thought about buying it back and dropping a forged ls7 in it, it all depends on how bad the electrical is ruined. I don't want to deal with electrical gremlins, if I did do that, I'd be keeping it. Then I'd two new cars, L8R ZFLASH

Omg, devastating. At least you have another , the picks together if possible would be a nice memory. Is that custom exterior paint and steering wheel on your C7?

Thanks, it's a Deep Space wrap, changes colors depending on how the sun hits it. As far as I know, the steering wheel is custom to, it came with it. L8R ZFLASH

Love the color. I may end up wrapping mine eventually. I'd go with something similar, I know there are several different variations of that color scheme. Is it stock besides the wrap? Any power mods planned? I think the tail lights would look good lightly tinted. I was hesitant to do mine but after doing them I'm glad I did. Lol, I couldn't leave mine stock for very long.

Just noticed, is that an ACS grill?
