It has to be a dark color. They look so much better on that car.

I like the blue too, much better than the Ford blue.

I saw a red one a few weeks ago that I would not ever want . . . I was driving on 85 northbound, came up on a car carrier with a red one one the bottom rack, nose sticking off the trailer a little bit. While I was still behind the trailer, the truck driver ran over a road gator. The gator flipped upward upon coming out from under the trailer, and whacked the nose/underskirt real good on the Camaro. Definitely damaged the nose

Thatís why you need to always transport in an enclosed truck.

As far as color this is such a personal thing though I will say I like the idea of the white with the black strips and black wheels !!

Pics are what they are, and I wish they were in the sun instead of shade, but one of the GM guys' cars In September. I think the yellow looks okay on the car with the black hood. I'm okay with it on the regular V8 cars, but it looks flat on the cars with the smaller wheels. And, yes, Alan, it looks fucking fantastic in white with big black wheels and a black hood. Again, with the smaller wheels, it's kinda meh.



I think it's because it almost looks like a bad ass cop car.

Nightfall Gray Metallic feels like what I'll want, but i have a lot of time to find reasons not to.

Um, I wonder if I have to think about that.

In other news, I've seen two 2017 V8 1LEs offered for sale under $38k in the past week.

It might take some looking to find one.

The tanker letter was you? Well played.

Do they make the V6 1LE in the awesome green color? I can't imagine many people are looking for one with a V6, but it might be the choice if you can find one and if they're marked down too?

The real letter(s) I send don't seem to get any attention, but oh well.

I would just like to point out that I did not write the letter to move the C4.
