GM stopped making the color due to lack of sales!
............
Initial allocations limited preorders.
ABM was not available to preorder as a SS until until 4 months into preorder period.
.............
80 percent of preorders were SS.
.............
Look back, dealers and the computers messed up changes to preorders, RS was dropped and other screw ups, dealers were not used to orders, they sell out of stock, most could not even tell when your car was to be built, thus the threads here with members asking and following their builds.
..............
You made your preorder and waited, allocations ran dry, you were happy with your order, then the first cars sat in prison for months.
..............
By the time the few ABM's showed up, the 34to 3700 that were built, GM, who was not even going to offer the SS in ABM said lack of sales, color cancelled, also the white color was a late start and had few builds. So only a few who ordered late, after thanksgiving ordered ABM as SS, V6 orders which were 20 percent of preorders were about 1400.
................
If you could not order it for the first four months, there will be few ordered, and remember the limited allocations, miss the allocation and you can not order either. My dealer had it's first three come in as ABM, so obviously not popular.............
