I assume you mean Z06, did they remove any orange peel and give it a world-class paint job?

That's not my favorite green but it might be the light.

Paint and they do a superb job in their paint shop. Better than factory.

I would buy/drive it. I like the uniqueness but would really like to see it in the sunlight.

Looks awesome.

I like the idea of different colors, not sure that I would want a dealership's bodyshop doing the paint though. I have a friend name of Carlos who works for a high end bodyshop who does concourse paint jobs, at around $20,000. I doubt that the dealership takes the time to do that type of work. As that is the type of work I would want on my repainted C7.
The colors are interesting, not for me, but good to bring in potential buyers to the dealer.

Know what you call a $20,000 paint job on a C7?

A really bad investment.

Looks similar to the Mustang's 'Gotta Have it Green', although I can't tell if it has the yellow pearl in it.

Question: Is that your car or just one you happened to see there?
