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?

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....

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Jetstream blue is an awesome color. I hope for the ABM fans that didn't get to order yet that it will be available for the Camaro.
