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 agree whole-heartedly! To me, ABM was the best color available to date. Not too dark, not too light. Vibrant looking, but not too "blindingly vibrant" like VR or Rally Yellow in sunlight. It was perfect!

Why, because it's on a Mustang? That's a really good shade of blue. I would buy an SS in that color.

However, there does need to be some different colors offered.
Sorry to go "off topic" but did GM borrow the front bumper of this truck for the rear fascia in their Camaro GFX package?

Whatever you call this color, the Camaro needs it. Or if they can steal Subaru blue.

I'm not trying to say a light blue will or will not happen...just something to think about.
Correct and keep in mind decisions like this are generally made early enough to be able to set up ordering and brochures, etc. So whatever the decision is................it's probably already been made.

Much more than that if you are going to do a total color change with tear down depending on the color you use. But if it is the color you want then you will get it and you will love it1

Thanks,
