The only other color I've heard of is Synergy Green from CamaroScotty's blog. A new blue would be nice - I still think it's a shame they are axing ABM. It would've been my second choice.

I think hydro blue is the same color that Saturn used for the sky. There was a post here earlier that said they had heard this was going to be offered in the future. As far as I know this is just a rumor at best. Not even sure where this person had heard this..

IMO if they take the car one shade deeper on the blue side(kinda what it looks like when in the shadows) they would have a winner. The key would be keep it on the blue side, not aqua side. Maybe a shade lighter than the Fathom Blue they used on Gen1.

Hydro blue looks like it might be nice, but I was really wanting ABM when I order next year also.

I wonder if the "Scottish" reference comes from this flag:


I don't know how it differs from Rally Yellow though...

If they truely come out with Hydro Blue it looks like it's one of those that would have to be seen in person. Looking at just the pics ABM was the one for me until I saw it in person. Then I thought is was just a little to teal.

If it was up to me I think GM should offer a more medium blue like what came on the Vettes a couple years ago. Something closer to this:

I think the blue on the 69 might be the blue i am talking about...it looks alot like the Fathom Blue. If they took that just one shade lighter i think it would look great, but not more than one shade otherwise your back to the Hydroblue
