Default Ceramic Gray

Is Ceramic Matrix Gray the worst color Chevrolet has ever offered on a Corvette? Can you think of any other color that Corvette has used through the years that is as bad as Ceramic Gray?

I don't mind it.. saw it in person and kinda like it. But as with all colors, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Different taste for different folks some love Ceramic Gray, some dislike Cyber Gray. And of course some dislike all shades of gray.

I love mine, and I've got it all fixed up where it doesn't cost you squat.

I'm curious, how have you got it all fixed up so it doesn't cost your squat?

EXCUSE THE FU// out of me but I think it's a great color and I have a 2018 vert with a blue top and think it's the best color combo G/M makes.

Nothing wrong with Ceramic Gray. Heck, even my wife likes the color-and she's not a car person either.

If you see it in the sun it may change your mind. I saw it on a ZR1 inside the NCM and it was MEH, but outside, WOW!

OK, I'll bite. The '79 light blue and light beige were about as unappealing to me as Ceramic Gray. The production numbers showed they were not popular. Carlisle Blue could also be in the mix as my most disliked colors. I've owned Riverside Gold ('69), white, black and red over the years and considered Cyber Gray or Lime Rock Green for the '14 so I'm not locked in to a single color.

It is an awesome color that has many different shades depending upon the light. All I get is complements. I have had several people ask me what the upcharge for it is.

Funny thing is with having some color blindness on shades of colors, CMG just likes looks white to me. I'd have to hate white to hate the CMG.

When CMG is parked next to an Arctic White car the AW looks yellowish. I would have never believed it until I saw it.
