 "THEZ06" is fantastic and hip. This dude is rockin out a sweet ride. My thought is this: if you want a car's paint job to stand out and be eye-catching, then why go with standard colors like black and yellow? I just envision a color thats more hip and ostentatious like purple. Your thoughts....

Here are my thoughts: Doug, I agree with your comments regarding the fantastic and hip nature of "THE Z06".

As for the color selection, I have some thoughts. Going with a 2 tone color scheme really enhances the "look at me" factor. So, even though black and yellow are standard colors, combining them makes the paint job fairly unique and causes the Corvette to stand out.

I like your suggestion about opting for an ostentatious color in order to be even more eye-catching. There is a pink Lamborghini Gallardo that gets LOTS of attention simply because it is painted in such a unique color. I have found that exotic cars from the Middle East often have extreme customization in both color and accessories (such as wild body kits). So, please know that people in the exotic car culture are out there pushing the limits of car customization.

I've seen that pink gallardo. It looks like Pepto Bismol on wheels. Unique, but not sure if i like it
