Go for electron blue if you can find one. Great colour! There are about a million Pewter ones like mine in Saskatoon. I like the colour but it is definitely not odd or unique. I still like white a lot and my lazy side is getting the better of me because I would only get a black one if you're prepared to spend a lot of time cleaning the paint and polishing out fine scratches.

If you want to be really odd, try to find a fairway green or gold one.

Electron blue is darker but not like navy. The color pops when sees in person.

Not to crap on that car but it is not a Z06. There are a lot of Corvettes in that price range for less miles in the States. I really like the white but if they don't know it's not a Z06, I wonder what else they don't know about it or think it has.

Just cause I feel like talking today......

Couple reasons why I knew instantly it was not a Z06:

1. No Z06 Badges
2. Targa top - I am pretty sure Z06 is fixed roof only, bu correct me if I am wrong.

There was a "Fixed Roof Coupe" or FRC available from 1999-2000. It had a fixed roof with a short back window and a trunk. The drive train was the same as all other Corvettes. This was the platform used for the Z06 in 2001.

The C5 Z06 was made from 2001-2004. It had a lot of modifications other than the engine such as thinner glass, rims, trans, fixed antenna, suspension, blah, blah, blah.

All other C5s were either targa top coupes or convertibles.
