    Believe me, I did piece that very combination (with silver hash marks) together on the Chevy site, and it would look amazing if it weren't for their lousy representation of Cyber Grey. An added benefit: the standard silver wheels kind of pop with CGM, saving the $2k for chrome wheels to be used on useful stuff instead...like dark grey calipers to make the silver wheels stand out even more, or putting toward an upgrade from 2LT to 3LT. I did one with Blade Silver too, and you were right, it does look better with chrome wheels...as does my favorite Arctic White. I truly morn the loss of the Competition Grey wheel option. That would look perfect with AW or CGM. My GS has black wheels and I will never do that again...

    On an annual basis, that would be an increase, no? Also, when they tell everyone that they can't order cars after September 21, it would tend to throw a damper on the party, wouldn't it?

    No, they're not...they're actually slowly getting better, just not fast enough for guys like me who were forced into retirement because their jobs were shifted to Mexico.

    They managed to get the big-ass C5 look though; was room for that.

    The design does nothing for me; unlike the C6 and most others. I have faith that the actual car will look little like the speculations, which has history repeating itself ....

    at least to this stage.

    The one actual photo of a C7 that I have seen was from the rear. The car had a cammo/cover on it, but the taillights could be seen fairly clearly through the cover...and they looked way too "Camaro" for me. If most of the whole-car renderings are correct (the front bumper is definitely "dead nuts"), then the rest of the car is waaay too "Hot Wheels" as well. Obviously, JMO...

    Could be a cover, but more than likely a cut and paste job.

    By "cammo/cover", what I meant was that in the photograph, the car had a black, form-fitting cover applied to it...with mesh covering the tail light area. The tail lights could be seen fairly clearly through the mesh. While they did look too Camaro-ish, they weren't as nasty as 67vet's photo...

    This is the photo that the tail light area was enlarged from.

    Check the angle of the Corvette crossed flags - and not in color.
