I'll have mine back tomorrow and I can take a few snaps. Anything in particular you're looking to see that hasn't been published?





White really shows the car well. The VY is sweet too, but maybe a little too eye-catching. Red....yes, beautiful! I was truly surprised at how great the silver looked on Doc's car.





a littel further away perspective door open about 15' away would be great and thanks for the other picture

The Kalahari interior is a classic leather look and feel. It goes extremely well with AW. You will not be disappointed.

I'm guessing/hoping brownstone will look good in an AW convertible. Adrenaline red is just too bright...fatiguing on the eyes after a while. A toned-down red would have worked better IMHO. Kalahari is OK, but maybe too orange for my taste. Chevy's gray is a little too light and rental-car bland, and black isn't generally good in a 'vert...at least for people who drive with the top down.

Glad to hear you drive them as often as possible. Been my philosophy for years. Having a low mileage car sit in the garage is of no value to me.

A few have posted that Kalahari has a slight orange tint to it. What's your take on that?

I must ask what you do for a living? I'm obviously doing it wrong. . . make good money, but not enough for a stable like that (which is exactly what I want - Ford GT, vette, and a track ****)

Having seen it, Skippy Creamy peanut butter is a pretty close match as others have said as well. IMO Kalahari goes well with AW but not if you plan on red calipers too.
