While on a tour of the BG assembly plant today, I saw a blue front bumper on a rack in the fascia storage area....asked the tour guide "what color is that fascia?" to which she replied, "that is no longer a secret, it is the new Electron blue." Yes, I like it and it is metallic. Unfortunately the lighting in the plant does not accurately show the colors of the painted parts. I also knew before asking her that their would be an electron blue front fascia in that location...based on a "tip" from a Museum employee before I went on the tour..thanks again to that "anonymous" employee for the heads-up tip!
I have been promised a "sneak peak" of an electron blue part tomorrow! Stay tuned, and if they allow me to snap a pic, I will!

zman:

Jake Drennan of the c5 Registry told me that the mod red/black will be avaiable again in '02.

Frank: Great pic! Where did you get it? Are you coming to BG, what day, or days?

Whew! What a day! Where do I begin? Gang, Pat and I are having such a great time here in BG! Toured the plant and saw an e-blue fascia, met so, so, many great people, hundreds of special Vets, vendors, scenic road trips, anybody who is anybody with Corvette is here, met a super Vet enthusiast and NCM Delivery Team Member, Matt Oatley. I met Mat thanks to Adam Boca, and he gave Pat and I the most comprehensive, fact-filled, eye-opening tour of the museum than I could ever have imagined! You could just feel the Corvette passion in this young man's every word. Matt...Thanks buddy!

Small glitch....left the motel room this morning to find a flat l.r. tire on the Z!
Called the local Goodyear Dealer, McGown Tire, and they repaired, re-mounted, balanced, and properly torqued the wheel within 45 minutes and charged only $25. Hats off to the fine service from these pros (found a phillips head screw in the tread)!
How could I almost forget....saw the new Electron Blue fender & hood on display in the NCM reception area! No exaggeration when I tell you that I was almost to the point of weak kneed, nervous shaking when I saw these two pieces! Zippy predicts this will be one of the best Corvette colors ever! I can not wait until I see the entire car in the sunlight!

Guys, it's tired and I'm late! (Re-read that).....more excitement tomorrow!

Zippy,
Can you tell me how it compares to Nassau Blue and Navy Metallic Blue? Which one is it closer to? Also, if you've ever seen a Nogaro Blue Audi S4, does it look anything like that? Thanks.

Saw the fender and hood at the bash. Just about enough to make me change from red. The missing link to me is the wheels. With that beautiful blue it should have polished or chrome wheels. Any info on wheels?
