How about adding Watkins Glen Gray Metallic to the color thread?

Well, I'm sure there were some at the Bash. I'm ordering that color and would like to see as many as possible.

'17's don't get delivered until Aug/Sept so chances of someone posting that color before then will be slim to none.

But congrats on your delivery.

Really interested in seeing Watkins Glen Gray with the Carbon Flash fender hash marks. The satin black full length stripes on the GS collector edition seem to be enough contrast to be visible, so hopefully the Carbon Flash is the same. I think it would be a subtle touch without standing-out as much as the Hyper Green or Tension Blue.

Thinking about Watkins Gray with a black convertible top and black interior. I had the same problems with exterior color choice when I ordered my 2014.

The Shark looks a little lighter, and WGG is sparklier.

I have a the Watkins glen on a grand sport convertible with grey top and interior. Black wheels, carbon hash marks and Z07 package. Wanted that option because of the ceramic Brakes. Has the carbon on the inside to and as of now is scheduled to come off line 6/24.
Hope to be there but not certain. Harvey

SG always looked rather dull and brownish with no sun shinning on it. WGG looks like a good improvement, especially matched with a set of silver or machined faced wheels.

Nice choices, would like to see some photos of the carbon hashes against the Watkins glen once you take delivery. Heck, the whole front quarter would be great to see, as that's the model/color combos I'm thinking about. Thanks!
