Found 2 ZR1 on the :Woot: Eye Candy Boulevard of the Corvette Museum (website)
with nearest to the closest aspects of what I would need to compare on my build.
First of all … I have to envision these in a preferred color of mine as I'm not
personally keen on this orange.

Here's pretty much the version most everyone has been seeing in the Dealership Deliveries …
I like it other than when I helped a fella put the roof panel into the back
and realized it may be rather awkward for one person to do it with the tall wing - and not bumping it.

next is one that I would likely aim toward as I do like the shorter wing
(for ease of one-man roof panel storage and hatch compartment access)
and I always seem to lean toward a chrome wheel.

… Ok back to my regularly scheduled program in the reality of life ...

I didn’t need to Photoshop my choice and my Wife took the picture agreed with full approval ....
there's little doubt I’m kicking tires on this during the upcoming hibernation for 2019.
Whether a reality ... it’s a great dream that’s for sure …
and with a need for a Dealer Sales-team to take me seriously and be grateful …
otherwise my trade in(s), my dollars walks.
… in the meantime there's still lots of Summer left with the Rays ...

Nice picking Spence! That would be one of my favs for sure. Like yourself and Dan I'm not crazy for the Daytona Orange. Now if it came in a Metallic Orange then it would top the list.

By build, are you building a car or are you ordering a ZR1? If building, are you driving at speed? If so, reinforce the wing to the chassis so you still have a hatch and bumper after. :) If not, whatever looks best to you and suits your needs, then never drive fast. If accessing the hatch for the roof or anything else is important then you answered your question.

Black wheels were "the new black" a few years ago, but are everywhere now, so don't stand out. Personally, wheels became overdone on cars some time ago, chrome wheels are a bit much on modern cars, and edge on looking like a pimp or drug dealer.

If chrome was pearl. :) But to be more serious, do what you like most, as other people's opinions are just opinions.

Black wheels and smaller wing for sure; but, if one chooses the smaller wing you can not order the performance pkg., I believe - I tried and nope. So, same trick all the companies do: make it very hard not to upgrade and pay more $$$$. I love both colors and would order vert, if I was crazy enough to pay the bucks they are asking>
