Actually, ABM has been cancelled by GM. So after next month, it will be produced no more. ABM was the lowest seller of all the colours and got axed, however, IBM is also a slow seller and may suffer the same fate soon. Either way both blues will be very rare indeed!

I think for the mainstream buyer, ABM is too greenish and IBM is too dark. Hopefully they will will get a proper blue, like Jetstream Blue. Anyway I like this green pretty well. Have to wait to see it in person to make final judgment. Like the brake vents, hate the new grille.

The SG reminds me of my bedroom I painted when I was 14, lime green and black trim. Not sure I'd want it on a car now. Below top pic is a Hugger orange Camaro and a Monaco orange Vette (same color in 69) from a 69 magazine ad. Bottom shot is an IOM (grandson of the 69) and a Monaco orange Vette. Not too far off. Very close in bright sun light, with the IOM having much more metallic

Yes. These will be rare cars. ABM is now guaranteed to be rare.

I wish they would have just used a regular blue like stryker, or jetstream.

I'll deal with it. And it makes it easy to buy off the lot - the ABM's are very rare on lots, but yellow, red, and black are plentiful now.

Well, we did ask GM to give us Jetstream Blue in the first place, however, ABM and IBM were offered to us instead. Not to say that ABM was a bad colour, but like myself, I think many people were just unsure how they were going to like it .. Now and in years to come .. so most opted for another finish. Not being able to see it at first made me hesitate in placing my order as I hoped it would be more like the 1968 light blue, but when I finally saw it in person ( on a HHR ) I knew it was not the colour for me. Still like blue so I went with IBM instead.

I'd be more than conent with that shade than with synergy green.
Synergy looks way too much like the Mopar green, and I absolutely hate it.
IBM it is for me....

Looks like we have a new polarizing color.

I just wanted a blue like the '69 Camaro's Lemans Blue.

No prob.

For all those which bought, or are still planning on buying ABM before the cut off date. Rest assured that you probably won't be buying the least produced colour of any 5th Gen. From the looks of this thread, Synergy Green could beat ( oh, I mean sell fewer units of ) ABM final sales record. :(

Synergy Green, is a perfect colour for a smaller car such as the new spark & cruz, but putting it on a Camaro or Silverado is just wrong IMHO.

While I don't like the color..I think it is better than the Urine (Legend) Lime color they had on the Mustangs for a while.

Did anyone notice the Grand Sport stiching on the seats? Looks like that will be one of the concepts...which would be why they hilighted brakes so much (similar to the C6 Grand Sport).

I think the green is kinda cool, reminds me of verde ithica (lamborghinis green), as long as GM doesn't do anything as dark a IBM but in green

exactly. it might be the lighting, the cameras, etc. but that does not look to be Synergy Green Metallic. it very well could be another green. remember the rumors about the Synergy green and an Opel green?
