 For color accuracy you need to use a lamp with at least a 5000-5500K (with 5500K being more accurate for Sun light at noon) temperature to get an accurate color display. Many typical home lamps are in the 3000-4000K range which is shifted towards warmer hues (yellows/reds) and lacking in the cooler spectral ranges that contain blues/violets. That is why outdoors or 5500K lamp rating is best for color representation in photography.

Yes, I thought it was blue as well...  it may be mostly the lights, but it does look like someone added a little blue to the silver mix.  *G*.. OR maybe the clear coat helps with that too?
and Thanks re the corvette.   I've only had that one 23 years... I repainted it lacquer about 16 yrs ago..

Should be centered vertically on the grille as shown above, at least every original car I've looked at has the emblem placed like that.
