Silver would compliment the car well, I think. It would tie in with the 40ths chrome emblems as well.

I think the Ruby is one of the nicest C4's made. If it were me, I wouldn't add anything to take away from its beautiful Ruby Red color!!!

Just my opinion, of course. ;)

Elaine, sorry to steal "hooks" thread on the GS stripe on the ruby red, but I noticed that you have moved up to a C5. I had read several weeks ago that you were selling your GS. Looks like a great ride. BTW, has Robert installed the luggage rack on his ruby red vette? The pics he sent from a recent car show do not show his vette with the rack.

Again, hope you really enjoy the C5.

I have to agree with GS Diva, I would not change anything on my "Ruby Red" either.

Rich hasn't installed the luggage rack installed...his mechanic is going to do it very soon, though.

Yes, I did move up to a C6, and it's fantastic!

Elaine - Sorry I called Rich Robert, I have his name in my address book, just didn't look. Really like the new ride - and you got to keep the plates! Did your GS go to a good home? While the GS's are great corvettes, would you go back to one now that you have the C6?

Check out the grand sport registry, they sell GS style stripe kits (decals) for under $250. They have many colors available.

It may be worth it to buy and install them on your car now as a trial to see if you like the look and want them painted on later.
