Has the car been repainted? What are you trying to repaint? If its factory I don't know why there would be a problem matching it. Sometimes there are variations from year-year so be sure to include...

Yes I think the C5 is timeless, but honestly, every corvette generation is desirable except the C4. I think the FRC and Z06 will be the most sought after from a collector standpoint.
