So much for all corvettes are red. I guess that only holds for the regular vettes.

I am wondering if Electron Blue will surpass MY?? Will it have higher sales than SW?? I guess only time will tell. I know that many people are talking about their EB orders, but when I looked at a post of who has ordered which (either here or the CF - I don't remember) I saw that there were fewer blues than I had though.
We'll see. Here's hoping my EB is pretty unique.

Thanks for the info, Frank.

With the EB not being an extra cost paint for '02...it should easily out sale the MY Z's.......ZMan

It'll definitely outsell MY, most people do not like the idea of paying a premium for the color option. Electron Blue's real competition is Black and Torch Red.

But white didn't cost a premium, did it? I thought MY was the only one.

So the premium theory is quite sound, but not 100% (look they even add up this time) accurate.

Demand enters into it somewhere. Some guy was looking for a SW the other day, and he got about 10 responses of dealerships with white Z06's within a day.

I tell you what though, I think they're one of the best looking cars with the stock rims, and the chrome units really look sharp on them. If I had any clue they were going to be that rare, I would've got one.

Zoomin's right.....I think the white Z looks great....almost bought one from Buds, but changed my mind literally at the last second....mainly just so i could get the newer model....But sure hated passing up on the white one...and "rare" it is relative to the other colors.

White was last on my list of colors that I wanted. After thinking about it though, I realized that it would be the easiest to customize. That and the fact that white was the only one on the lot when I was looking is why I bought it. After buying it I absolutely hated the color until I put the chrome wheels on it. Now I love it and feel extremely fortunate to have 1 of 352.

David, I felt the opposite. I owned a 2001 MY coupe and saw yours and NO MERCY'S plus the Z06 option and I swapped out. I beat you on the chomies though! LOL! Did you ever get my email? Regards,Les

Chrome wheels make a huge difference on the SW Z06s. At night these babies really stand out! /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif:D
