Color Conundrum

Sup guys,

I love my car and when I say love, I mean LOVE, as I'm sure you all do as well. However, my affinity does not stop me from day dreaming about the NEXT camaro I own.

That being said, with all things being the same, assuming no new colors are offered and none are taken away (R.I.P IOM), if you were to buy a new Camaro in the future, would you stick with your current color choice or go a different route?

Me prersonally? Well, I have a silver ice metallic with black racing stripes and other black accents, (Bowties, gills, etc) and I adore her but I do think that the next one would either be IOM (if it were still offered) Or summit white with black accents. The summit white has really grown on me and I find myself drawn to it more and more..

How bout you guys?

Two of my cars I have now are black, including my Camaro. The Camaro is black with silver stripes and looks awesome, but I think I'm done with black and if I like the 6 th gen I will get a light color with dark stripes.

Go with summit white but be ready for cleaning it, but in my opinion it would be worth it.

I've owned 3 victory red convertibles. If I were to own a fourth convertible (assuming my wife doesn't finally kill me), I would look long and hard for one in ashen gray metallic with black wheels. Just love that combo.

I love SW and would do it all over again (other than how much the dirt shows, it is AWESOME!). Rather than straight black accents, I find that I really like the cyber gray stripe package and the black vinyl on the rear (check my photo album). The CGM gives just enough *pop* that is a little different than the black you always see. Just my $0.02

All of your $0.02 is exactly what I was after. =)

I initially wasn't big on the SW, but for some reason lately it's really appealed to me. I think any color is hard to keep clean.. well... clean by my standards at least lol.

The silver never really looks dirty from far away but upclose it gets filthy. Especially this time of year with all the pollen. Every day I leave work and I have a nice hint of green.. its 5x more noticeable on the black racing stripes..

white and black both bite when it comes to keeping it clean and black especially with water spotting, I am soooooo happy with my crystal red metallic, I just wish they had even more colors like a nice burple.........

Since I can't get Synergy Green again I would either get Red with White stripes, or White with Blue stripes.

You guys are all wrong re white being hard to keep clean. Besides it being the best looking color imo,
it is the EASIEST to clean. It shows the least dirt when dirty-
The darker the color on any car, the more the road dirt and grime show.

Black, it was the only Camaro SS on the lot with a 6 speed manual. I'm not a patient person - I wanted my Camaro NOW!

The plan was to buy American muscle in an obnoxious color with big a$$ stripes. So with that being said I was looking for the synergy green but they don't make verts in that flavor so IOM was what I bought...mission accomplished.

Everything I buy is Black, it is a PIA to keep immaculate, but I love the look and I still have the health to keep it clean. If I ever get too old to keep them clean, I will go with some form of silver since it hides dirt great.

There's a 2011 Synergy Green 1SS on a lot here in town. If it was an automatic, I'd buy it for the wife. Not because she likes the color...

100% correct. I've had a black car and white ones and there is a world of difference in the amount of effort to keep them clean. Silver may be the best at not showing dirt, but white is very good also.

Silver may be the best at not showing dirt, however, once you put black stripes on it, it's essentially like having a black car. I think I wash it so much im gonna disolve the car. lol

More reason we need additional lighter color choices. I assume alot of Camaros get driven quite often, if not daily. As much as i like some of the darker colors offered, i dont want to wash my car every 3 days.
