Default More dealer pics

I haven’t had a chance to give it a good detail yet, so here are some pics from the dealer’s ad prior to sale.

It looks like orange sherbet. I love orange sherbet! I am always impressed when someone, anyone, that takes a different path to uniqueness...

Yeah, I agree to an extent. I’m nervous as hell parking in diagonal public spot (but I was with my last Vette too). However, now I have noticed ‘undesirables’ following me around and taking pics while they are behind me at stoplights, traffic jams, etc., very uncomfortable none the less. I guess it’s a good thing I’m packing (and I’m not talking luggage) 24/7 as I live in a rough city, believe me, very true However, precautions are taken and will continue to be taken. So I actually appreciate your concern. This car stands out, but it is not always a good thing.

This was a dealership’s custom paint showcar, less than 800 miles on it and never titled until today. It was just used in a couple of local car shows and lived in a Corvette only showroom for the past couple of years.

2LT, Z07, M7, with Brembo Ceramic Brakes, PDR, and other goodies. I had the same feeling when I brought my 50th AE C5 home over 3 years ago - but this car is just ‘WoW’.

Glad to be in the C7 club.


Arctic White w/custom wide orange painted stripe followed by silver. Custom paint on ground effects, mirrors, & spoiler. Kalahari and black interior.
Love this color scheme! Congrats!

I've been looking to move up to a C7. Originally looking at only verts but seeing this white/brown car with the stripe like I have on my car changed my mind. Saving this link to show striping .

Yeah, I was looking, but I wasn't really ready to purchase a C7 until winter when the prices are better. But when I saw this paint job I just had to do it.
