^^ the HHR is the real color. i saw it in a paint book the other day. you can't really compare it to Chevy's PS rendering (it's too light).

Saw an ABM Chevrolet Colorado in the flesh for the first time this weekend, and all I can say is it's awfully bright aqua - deeply saturated.

Like IOM, it's a color you ought to try and see in person before you commit.

Not saying it's good, bad or indifferent, just ... bright.

I think it may be at least possible that the shade changes with the car it's on, but I don't really know. I saw a Tahoe in what had to be ABM (or whatever its Tahoe equivalent is) the other day and it was almost a bright navy blue. I liked it quite a bit. I say it almost had to be ABM because it had a clear green flash to it in the sunlight. Definitely have to see this on the Camaro in person before I can decide what I want...

a color is a color. if it's called something different, there's something a little different about it. for example:

Nassau Blue


Electron Blue


Found this 09 Aqua Blue HHR on chevyhhr.net

I apologize to whomever likes this color, but I hate it. Not as much as I hated Pewter from the 4thgen Fbodies/C5 Vette, but I definitely do not like this color at all.

To each his own.....

I showed my 18yr old son the thread photos, and he liked the color a lot.

He's Joe fashion, I don't give a darn.

Or as we agreed:

He's the NEW Hotness, and I'm OLD and BUSTED. xxxx

I don't know guys. I've seen a lot of Red Jewel Tintcoat and it is really growing on me. Even though blue has always been my favorite color, and I absolutely adore both blues on the Camaro.

That's basically true, but I can't count the number of times I've seen the same metallic color on different models of cars and the paint varies slightly, but enough to look good on one model and not on another. On top of that, colors do change slightly from year to year. I, personally, haven't seen the 2010 ABM in person, so I don't really know what it will definitely look like, but I can hope.

Upon further research, the SUV I saw might have been "Bermuda Blue".

What's wrong with Light Pewter Metallic? That color masked dirt and such better than any other color I've had experience with. Like you said, to each his own.

While masking dirt is nice I like a color to stand out and look good. Pewter did neither of those to me. IMO it looked like Bile, and not only that it looked like a color that belonged on a Malibu not a performance car. Some people love it, and for them great, if they are happy its their car they should be! ... I still hate it though.

Saw a ABM Colorado today. It's alright but not my thing. Definitely looked lighter in the decent lighting at the auto show than the one in the overcast skies posted in this thread. Is definitely a lighter blue color. Not bad but not my thing.

Makes sense. Thanks for the insight.
