Hi all, I was driving around today and noticed a C5 coming at me from the other direction. It was a very cool color. It resembles the Charcoal-Metallic color used in the early 90's on the C-4's. I was wondering if anyone knew what color this was and if anyone has any pic's of C-5's in that color. Thanks....

It could have been 1 of 5 possible colors: Fairway Green Metallic, Nassau Blue Metallic, Navy Blue Metallic, Medium Purple Pearl Metallic, Dark Bowling Green Metallic.....depending on the lighting.

Rob, I think it's the medium purple pearl. Very sharp color. I actually saw 2 today within 30 seconds of each other & there is a light purplish tint. Thanks for clearing that up:)

You can also order one through Amazon.com. If you go to our Corvette books section, you can order it through there. We are an affiliate of Amazon.com and any orders that are processed through the Amazon.com from the Corvette Action Center helps support the CAC.
