True that but with the loud orange it might be the wrong impression. I like the IO but for me I would rather a black car b/c taking clients out in the visually loud orange may be a bit much. just my 2 cents , what I like , not what you should like.

I love black on most cars. On the camaro though, it seems to hide some of the lines of the car. Take a look at one coming in the opposite direction on the interstate. It's hard to tell that it is even a camaro until it gets pretty close. For this camaro (my opinion), the lighter colors show off more of the sexy curves and you can see it coming from a mile away.

Orange, White, or Aqua Blue get my votes.

Black is just a MAJOR pain.

Black has to be one of the most wet/prettiest/highly reflective colors out there. But if you don't clean your car often its definitely not for you. You also have to weigh pros and cons..swirl-marks,rock-chips and the smallest blimish of dirt shows up on black...easy but not with orange. If you don't keep black clean when its dirty or even mildly dusty your black wont look black, it'll look brown or grey because its covered in dirt. If you don't have a garage or time to clean often get orange. I got s.I.m. because dirt doesn't show easy on the paint...black is another story.

I have black but I wish I would have bought IOM. Black is just too hard to keep clean and it shows every imperfection on or in the paint.

I might even sell this one and get an IOM over the summer.

Neither for me. I think black is way to common and I would have liked the orange better had it been more of a "hugger" orange. If I had to choose between the two I would go with IOM with black stripes (painted on). Good luck with your choice

Black is sinister and menacing looking and then you put it on the Camaro and you have one intimidating machine rolling around. For me the choice was easy.

I guess you can tell which way I would vote.....

But having said that, I've done my time with two black cars ('93 Z28 and '95 Impala SS), and I think everyone should own a black car at least once in their lives...that way you can appreciate the "easier" colors down the road...LOL!

I just can't learn my lesson, I've owned a bunch of black cars. Black cars are a pain in the butt to keep clean but when they are clean they are hard to beat in the looks dept.

Yup, it even catches the Highway Patrol's attention too. Something about ION and Yellow stand out a little more than I'd like.

I am a bit biased due to the fact that I own a IOM. However I just detailed a friends car which was black...Oh my lol. Black shows EVERYTHING. Every spec of dust, and it just keeps getting worse as the day goes by. Don't get me wrong black is by far the sharpest color on really any vehicle, but if you like to keep your car looking spotless, and overall looking really clean, don't get black. It kills me to see dust on it 5 mins after I finished washing/wax. Sure its on my car too but can't really see it :P

I was going bkack---

then today, my wife, an artist, came out of her studioi with a drawing of an IOM Camaro with blue, red and yellow ghost flames. It looked awesome on paper and will look even better on the car. IOM is what we'll be ordering andI know a good painter to do the flames. Will cost a little extra, but what price art?

Get the best of both worlds!! Go with IOM exterior and the black leather interior. Best and toughest color combo Ive seen in my opinion.
