That was closer than I thought. But if you look at which colors made it into the 7's, the 5's and the 4's, it's about what I expected. Black and CGM clearly the winners here.

Dragoneye and all, here is a little graphical representation of the results for everyone. I think this really shows just how close it was. BTW, I am trying to overlay the exact colors on the graph, but that is taking a little more work.

Hmmm. It looks like there's gonna be tons of CGM roaming the streets. Potentially enough to change my choice. Hmmmm.......

Chart redone using the actual colors as shown on the Chevy Camaro site. I am not sure I like this version any more than the other one, but thought I would post it anyway.

Thankfully I chose wisely. My thoughts were to pick something that wouldn't be on every other Camaro...but that I would still like

Wow...I am surprised! Black and Silver ranked very high! Well, that means there won't be as many IOM out there Thanks for giving us the chance to participate in this

Now when can you tell us WHY they wanted this survey? Do they want to have their paint booths set up and all ready to go?

I was wondering the same thing. But they should have even more information on ordered colors (sample size of 10,000 versus 646) than we gathered here. I was wondering if they were considering dropping some color options, but that doesn't really make much sense either. For example, if the Malibu is getting Summit White, it shouldn't be any increased expense to have it for the Camaro. BTW, not trying to start any rumors here. Just thinking out loud.

I thought IOM would have ranked higher. I like the Cyber Gray best.

The biggest surprise to me was yellow. I love the transformers yellow, very tough looking, and hate the rally yellow, too light. But there was seemed to be so many people on this forum that love rally yellow, I figured it was just me.

I was very torn when ordering between, Cyber Grey, Inferno Orange, and Imperial Blue. I liked the IOM, but wasn't sure if I would in a year, and my wife wasn't keen on the way it looked in pictures, and neither was I. But it looked a lot better when we had more outdoor pictures, it really changes colors. IBM is a little too dark, almost black, and I didn't want to fight the scratch's and dirt. My wife loves silver, and I normally do too, but I'm tired of it already, it's all they can do is keep pushing it on us. I feel it's gotten boring, and plain. So even though we haven't seen CGM on a Camaro, it looks great on a vette, and changes colors in different lighting. I fell it will look great, and timeless for years to come.

I figured IOM would be in the middle, it's kind of a love or hate thing, i figured about 50/50, but the distribution graph would be high on both ends and low in the middle. Do you think we could have distribution graphs for all 10 colors? It would be interesting.

Sokay. Just read my previous explanation below on why they wanted the data.
