The C6 at the 2004 Birthday Bash

A pair of C6s under wraps in the Rotunda until the introduction on Friday.

Here they are with the wraps off on Saturday.
That's the new "Daytona Sunset Orange" color.

A rolling chassis.

One of those camouflaged mules from the spy photos.

This is where the C5 started: 1997 VIN #0001.

This is where the C6 started: 2005 VIN #0001. The convertible behind it is VIN #3.

Since it was raining, I checked:
YES, they fixed the problem of drainage off the raised hatch!

Also on the scene was a new GM venture: "Corvette Genuine Accessories"
obviously hopes to get the jump on the aftermarket for C6 dress-up goodies.

The new "Precision Red" on the C6 against the "Torch Red" on the C5.
While the first impression is that it is dull, I found the new shade
growing on me as the weekend progressed.

The new "Daytona Sunset Orange" in the sun. Yes, finally SUN!
