Where are the red factory stripes?

Why did Chevy choose orange over red? I know the classic pace cars had orange stripes but I'm sure if buyers had the choice between red and orange, they would choose red. It seems to be more agressive and sporty than orange. Even the interior accents can be orange!

Someone inform me why Chevy chose orange stripes and interior accents over other colors? Honestly I think the only orange piece in a chevy should be the engine block.

Sorry for the rant and I hope nobody takes offense to anyone who has anything orange on or in their cars...I just am confused.

Black on red, White on red... I think those are pretty aggressive combos.

Ignore the fact I have red stripes on my car.

I think red stripes would look good on a black or white car.

Maybe they're coming out with a Halloween version, Orange stripes on a black car.
