Raise our voices!! We need a 2nd Blue in 2011!!
 
Im pissed off and worried right now!!

I loved Aqua Blue! But as usual Chevy axes the color after only one only year!! They've done this in the past with other cars Ive wanted. Then were only left with one Blue which is Imperial blue which I do not like.

At first I was not that worried because we were told that Hydo Blue would step in to replace Aqua Blue. Now I'm hearing rumors that Hydro Blue will not replace Aqua Blue!!!

Chevy needs to offer a second Blue !!! I wish I could have bought it in the first year but I could not, and I wont buy it in 2011 if there is not a Bright to medium Blue available!!!!

Please Chevy reconsider Hydro Blue or find another Blue or I wont be buying a Camaro in 2011 !!! Ill either buy a used Aqua Blue or a used c6.

Does any one agree?

I concur. I would buy an Electron Blue Camaro.

Or, you could buy the car and paint it.... Most folks wants the car first, the paint is important, but not more important than the car....

BackinBlackSS/RS 01-03-2010 06:52 PM

They need HUGGER Orange.

It's not like the old days where you could paint the car and the door jambs and you were done. Now everything on the car is painted body color, inside, under hood, engine compartment, trunk, etc. It would be darn near impossible to paint a car today an entirely different color and have it look right.

Dark green would be a cooler option.

Color match the Transformers Bumblebee, and loose the rally yellow. I haven't seen one yet that all of the body panels match.

I 2nd the matte black finish. Chevy should come out with a like a ZL1 Camaro in matte black.

Matte White also looks really nice, like they did with the SL63 AMG Mercedes IWC edition.

I think it's less about GM am more about sales. I thought I remember the blue having low sales numbers when reported here.

Don't get me wrong, I love the blue and once had one, but I think it's more than just someone in management saying kill the blue.

kutch720 01-03-2010 08:53 PM

I like the jetstream blue.

:word:

If they had offered this for the 2010MY then I'd be driving one in that color instead of Victory Red. This has always been my favorite GM blue.

Mr. Wyndham 01-03-2010 08:57 PM

The problem is that Oshawa has one paint shop, with a finite number of paint hoppers....and more cars are planned to be built at that plant in the future. Most of the colors they use need to be applicable across the board, and then each vehicle might get one or two model-specific colors...

I'm not trying to say a light blue will or will not happen...just something to think about.

nester7929 01-04-2010 02:04 AM

Never cared much for IBM. It's okay, but it can easily be mistaken for black. They need a brighter blue. Jetstream would be perfect.

Chevy needs a to offer a lighter blue, it looks great on the curves of the camaro

Booster 01-04-2010 03:03 AM

My dream colors for the Camaro are Sunrise Yellow first, and Jetstream Blue second...

I agree. The supposed synergy green that I heard is replacing ABM is too light in my opinion. If I would've known they were going to do this I would have also ordered mine in ABM long ago. For now guess I'll go with IBM with a twist.

Because I don't think it's fact. IBM has been out for years......it's kind of reached it's life-cycle. Keep in mind what goes on the Camaro mostly goes on the Impala too, same paint line.

Rogue Leader 01-04-2010 06:42 AM

Hated ABM... but a second non-ABM blue would be great

YenkoSC 01-04-2010 07:05 AM

I think Chevy should bring back Lemans Blue!
