    I was torn between the Blade Silver and the ELB. But I've never owned a blue car among the ship-loads of cars that I have owned, and my daily driver and C2 are both silver. Also, the ELB just seemed to call out to me, flipping between the Blade Silver and ELB images on the configurator.

      Is this Rapid Blue or the Torch Red Exotic as a combo of ordinary? Just keep it simply black and sky blue or black fire engine red. Exotic as it will get.

        It may come down to color combinations and wheels. Instead of colors.

        IMO, of course.
        Interesting way to look at it. I went with the exterior colour first and then picked the wheels, interior colour and accents that matched. Though I must admit that knowing that the mirrors and grills etc were black I went with the black wheels for that reason.

          Nice write up. I was leaning towards the Elkhart Lake Blue Metallic. By any chance did it look purple when the sun hit it at certain angles?

          Years ago I ordered a 2006 HHR in dark blue, I think it was called Daytona Blue but don't recall now. I had seen that color at the dealership but never on a sunny day as it was just coming into winter here in Washington State. After picking up the car in January, I didn't get a chance to see it in the bright sunlight until springtime.

          I was heartbroken the first time the sun hit and it looked purple. I hate purple! I was very upset but nothing I could do about it. I actually still own the car, it's my daily driver.

          I would be horrified if the Elkhart Lake Blue Metallic looked purple in the sun and if I knew in advance it was going to do that, I would order a different color.

          What are your thought?

          Cheers, PB

            You might wish to you take a look at the tons of pictures in this thread and determine if you see any purple in any one of them, and as Elkhart Lake Blue is identically a 2019 Corvette color, visit a dealership who has one in both low light and full sunshine. Best of luck on in finding one.

              Thanks John. I've looked at a lot of pictures but this is something that needs to be done in person. Since we don't have much sun around here most of the time during this time of year, looking at one now probably won't help me. If I'm in doubt, I will either get red or yellow.

                The Elkhart Lake Blue is very similar to the blue my 19 Chevy Cruze is, and the Hyper Blue Metallic my 16 Camaro was. It does not look purple in any light.
                The greatest sound in the world is a Rolls Royce Merlin over 100 inches.

                  The Metallic in paints are actually plastic flakes. I have a 2000 Camaro in Navy Blue Metallic and it has purple flakes in the paint. I would HIGHLY recommend you go look at a 2019 anyway. Take a strong flashlight with you and look at it closely from all angles to see what colour the flakes are.

                    ELB is available on the 2019 C7, so you might be able to find one on a dealer lot to look at. FWIW, I don't recall ever thinking that color looks purple.

                      Thanks TAdams65, Murry, and meyerweb for chiming in with your suggestions. I'm still waiting for the sales guy to contact me so I can go in and meet him and get my order processed.

                      I will look around at the dealership when I'm there and if I can't find anything with that color, I will start looking around elsewhere.

                      I do plan on ordering with the Elkhart Lake Blue Metallic since I will have a little time to figure this out and can make a color change if needed.
