Dilema I am in

Ok so I have a 2SS on order through Classic Chevrolet in Sugarland TX. My wife has no idea about this. This car is to replace my wifes 1997 Z28 with 104,000 miles on it. Very clean and well maintained vehicle.
Anyway, I pick up a brochure at the dealership the other day. She sees it tonight and says I don't think I am going to like Red Jewel Tint. We went through all the options a few months ago. Keep in mind she has no idea I have this car on order and currently 3400 status. It has everything she told me she wanted. Now she says she probably wants to go order a Victory Red. Should I tell her about the car? It is suppose to be a surprise. Or should I stick to my original plan and pick it up and park it in the garage so it is there when she comes home? She said she thought it looked to maroon in the brochure. What to do.

Surprise her. While I haven't seen a RJT in person I've heard it is a color that doesn't photograph well. Of course I'm biased since I have a RJT on order also.

Now the hard part is to keep her from ordering one to surprise you

Thats the best part. She can't without me finding out. She is Contract Labor and she is going without a job for the next few months while daughter is out of school. She would also be ordering through a friend (same person I ordered through) so she would just fake taking an order from her and tell her no deposit necessary. She is on the surprise. She also said to keep the car.

Show her a red tint Vette and see what see thinks. I've seen the real car at lots of places (I do the auto show circuit) and not one person has not liked it. Its as close to a candy apple red as you can get. It just sparkles in the sunlight.

Scotty have you seen RJT yet? Her main concern is too maroon.

I agree. The RJT is a fantastic color when you see it in real. especially in the sun.
