Yeah! Its white. And, the wheels are on the wrong side. But, then so are wheels on most of the header pictures on this forum.

it's as you say with the exception being the wheels are on the car correctly as they are and the one in the header is correct too.
here is a pic of mine.

You are incorrect sir. Your's are on "back'erds" as well. Turbines and sawblades should not look as though ther're fighting the forward air flow. As reference. Look at old C4 sales pic's. Or, the GM part no. for right and left side.
Of course, you CAN were a baseball cap sideways, or backwards. But, only people of like ilk will consider it "cool".

type in 1990 corvette in a google search. every corvette has the rims on the correct way which mine are. here is an official gm photo of a 1990 vette.

Not that it really matters, because anyone who owns a vette can put their rims on anyway they like, but the saw blades and the turbines are two different types of rims. Gotta compare apples to apples and oranges to oranges......

Odd that it took this long for me to get here, but I looked at the article and see that the top photo is that of my 35th sitting on my driveway.  Don't know where they got that pic from.  Probably from another site, but still the same, nice to see it in the article.
 
To address the rightway/wrongway on the wheels...  It is my 35th that is pictured at the top of the registry and the wheels are on correctly.  I have attached a photo of the original brochure for the 35th showing the correct direction of the wheels. The pic of my car at top is the same pic in the article with the background cropped out.

I must agree. I too own an 88, not the anni. but still an 88. When I look at the original sales brochure and my own car, the wheels are oriented the same as the one pictured here. And to my eye, I think that is the way it should be.......... Just my 10 cents worth.
