Thumbs up First Pics of Aqua Blue Metallic Camaro

Finally found some pics that someone snagged with their cameraphone of an Aqua Blue Metallic LT/RS. I wish they were taken with a better camera and at a higher resolution but it's better than photoshop.

Not sure I understand your comment. Aqua Blue Metallic is one of the initial release colors. Summit White is the only delayed color.

ABM sure looks a lot darker than I thought it would. How much darker could IBM be?

That probably is a slightly different shade of white or else hand painted. There is another thread that talks about the reason for the delay having to do with changing out the paint color in ON.

Was those pictures taken in Detroit? It looks like Fishbones Grill in the background of the second picture. I was there a few weeks ago.

Looks like IBM more than ABM to me.

That's exactly what I thought when I first saw it. It sure doesn't have that "aqua" tint to it.

Nope, sorry but the one in this post is ABM. I've seen ABM on an HHR recently at a local dealer. IBM is A LOT darker. I've seen IBM in person on multiple Malibu and HHR models and there is no way that the photos I posted are IBM. On dim/overcast days like the one those photos were taken, IBM actually appears closer to black with some blue highlights.

Here's ABM on the HHR:




and here's IBM on the HHR:

Hmmmm. That's interesting then. I can't stand the color they have for the rendered ABM but the one in the pics looks really nice. And so does IBM on those other cars. I wish they had them all sitting next to each other in the same lighting on real cars. Picking a color now seems to be an impossible task. I was pretty set on CGM but now I'm second guessing the choice.
