You know, why the heck don't they make ABM any longer? I haven't seen the sales numbers, as who knows, maybe the color wasn't "popular" enough, but I doubt it. Considering how many people love it, it must have done well. It must be a paint code thing, or difficulty finding the supply of the paint, etc. Even though I wish they still made this color, I also don't want them to make it again because it makes all the current ABM ones so much more unique . I love this color!

Thanks guys. I have not seen but a handfull of them since they began production in 2009. They sold some 3609 ABM and ceased production on November 10, 2009. And of those I have seen, non with Cyber Grey Metallic rally stripes...

Got to tell you....I simply "lucked out" on this one....

Can't say I will be sad if they never return ABM....I know when I ordered ours I did not like the color swatch...It looked so much like Teal of the 90s....But Matt Hubbard showed me actual ABM on other models....and with the 1968 in our garage....it was going to be ABM...without a doubt....

Well deserved COTW! I love the color of the car! It looks amazing I always wondered why they took ABM away when it is such an amazing color and I'm sure so many people would want it! It's safe to say you got a bad*** rare ABM Camaro congrats once again!
