    The Black and Rapid Blue were not to my liking. The Zues Bronze looked nice as did the Long Beach Red. I don't think I have seen Silver, Yellow or either the lite or dark Grey. The one I was behind with the wing was Sebring Orange and it looked cool in the late afternoon sun.

    I know a lot of old fart Vette owners like myself are not in love with the mid-engine but after 43 plus years of owning Corvettes I'm on board with the change 100%

    My favorite is the silver blade.

    And, while I like the C7, I'm looking forward to test driving the C8. Having owned a mid engine car before, the driving dynamics of this type of configuration can be very satisfying to car enthusiasts.

    I’m leaning silver. But still TBD. I have until Dec 3 to decide.

    Agreed. Once you’ve driven a mid-engine, front engine cars drive like Dad’s Buick (with a few big exceptions like the present C7 and 812, among others).
