Kitesurfer2, I never liked the white until the C7 body. The exterior black accents break up all the "ice cream truck" white. I actually thought about the white but stuck with my first choice "crystal red". Good luck and have fun with your ride!

If you are a first time Vette owner, you may not know, but it's considered proper etiquette by many Vette owners to wave when you see "any other" Vette coming your way. Many don't these days but those who are enthusiastic Vette owners still seem to do so... (Similar to the motorcycle riders waves)

I never had a white one but I'll admit the color looks good on the C7's.

And if you were going to Corvettes At Carlisle this weekend, you'd get lots of practice waving

I could have paid cash but my stock funds are earning money again and the interest rate is 1.9%, for less than $1000 in interest paid out for 48 months. My buying price was less than dealer invoice and they gave me $20k on my trade ($17k top retail according to edmunds.com). I thought I would miss my miata, but not yet

Latest vettes are the first ones since the 70s fiberglass stingrays that i can stand looking at.

I believe Bob Wingate had the 3 lights per side that were custom ordered from the factory. He was a big dealer back in the day.
