Having seen both of them in person on an ugly day and on a sunny day, i thought they both looked beautiful. CGM just looked wierd today, i shouldve takenpics for you guys, my iphone is the only thing that captures true colours outside for some reason, anyways all i can say is to go to your dealer, find an ABM car, and look at it in the sun, sunset, night and on the ugliest days of all. I think those who have ordered the ABm will be impressed with their choice

Seeing we're having crappy weather today in Toronto, I think a Sunday drive is in order. If there is anything WORTH reporting on this color I will let you know, camera packed.

The car was in the service department downloading something, it was vin no. 000186, was 1LT, no 4 pack gauges and was cloth seats, the wheels were 19", it had air compressor and battery where spare tire would go.
Actually was going back to my office at lunch time waiting at a traffic light when it pulled out of the Dealership behind me, so when I got back to my office I called the Sales Manager and told him to call if it came back, because it was Aqua Blue, which is what I ordered.
Was 6 speed manual, was driven by 2 GM people.
DZ28......Mine got away too, 1970 mulsanne blue Camaro.

The more I'm looking at pics of the ABM the more it's getting away from me, and it doesn't have the "punch" like the blue from "back in the day".

To answer an earlier question here, how'd it look in the sunlight? Guess it got your attention right away when it pulled out behind you?

Was cloud covered, not too bright, but was darker than I expected, The 1968 Camaro and my 1970 was a better blue. Don't think I will change colors though.

Thanks, I saw it in Philly under the lights and loved it, saw it at my dealer on a HHR on a cloudy day and still liked it. Many guys report too much green, IMO, I don't see it. But I switched from IOM for ABM

1969 Lemans Blue Camaro is my "got-away from me" car.

Let's face it, we have to settle for these blues because it's all there is.

Jetstream Blue is my favorite current blue, but it's not cost-effective for GM to include it, and it's an extra-cost option on the Corvette.

Newer members may not know, GM was not going to make ANY blue Camaro SS's until we raised hell.

So, I'm willing to compromise, and get ABM with white rally stripes.

Hell I would take the purple on that other car in a heartbeat over either of the two blues being offered.

I would def go with Aqua Blue, but have had it already on 2 different cars, so its time for a change. In all light conditions, its a great color, unlike some of the others offered.

I have a feeling there will be an option for Jetstream Blue eventually, i thought the ABM looked good, i would say its the better blue out of our options.
Squalo, you didnt like it when you saw it in person?

Hey Walt,
No, it is primarily blue, with just a hint of green. Hence the name, aqua blue. Think of the blue/green carribean waters, but on the bluer side. Its a stunning color you will be very happy with. The only 2 reasons I'm not getting it. 1-Had before on 78', and a similar blue on 03' Impala....And #2, I was a bit spoiled on the 78' (bought used in 83'), as at that time, aqua blue was VERY rare, atleast where I lived. So I had one of a kind. In the late 80's, the color became much more prevelant on GM cars. All the colors on the new Camaro are somewhat common, but for someone like yourself who has never had it, and is drawn to it, you will be VERY happy with it. It is among the most consistently vibrant of all the colors offered, in varying light conditions. Here's pic of my 78' (sorry, not the best photo)

My 69 Camaro coupe looked just like this, but had std. white interior instead of houndstooth. I just wish the ABM was more blue...brighter. I am holding out for Jetstream Blue or something simular. I have been lookin at ABM in the sun, in the shade, everywhere...and I just can't fall in love with it. Hope GM listens and makes a change sometime in the next year....damn, I want blue with white rally stripes!

I know what you mean.

I love JSB, but will settle for ABM for now.

The Camaro looks great in all colors too...

To Derby - The 78 that you bought used, the color code on that was 48 and it was called DARK BLUE GREEN METTALIC. I actually ordered the same colr back in 1978. I still own it today with 50,000 or so miles. On order, I have a cyber gray with black int and because of the contraint on my color I will be changing it to Imp Blue. I would have ordered green if they had it.

I'm feeling the same way. Just doesn't have the look of the 1st gen blue colors. And I sure don't like the Smurf blues either. I thought ABM would be good because it's not too dark to show a lot of dirt and dust, but is dark enough to show deep reflections. But I'm just not sure about that shade of blue....

I just saw it in person, and I'm not sure I like it as much. It definitely has a green-ish tone to it, almost teal. But it's still really nice. I didn't like it on the HHR, but I think it will look better on the Camaro. I just wish they had used the same blue from the older Camaros, or even the one they have on the current Corvettes, I think it's Jetstream Blue.

You will for sure! BTW, after indecision on my own final choice, I have decided Victory Red with either CGM or Black Rally Stripes!!! (was down to choices of IBM, RJT, or VR), and leaning towards VR, but had concern about it being too bright.....then the lightbulb came on, and it all makes sense now! Add the stipes to break up the brightness somewhat! I was totally anti-striping til I saw the light. Yee Haw!!!
