Fighting words from the General Camaro Forums Section.
"Which CamaroColor would you never own" pg 2 and 3

"Imperial Blue. if i wanted blue i'd get a real blue like ABM, IBM is too dark. often confuse it for black if the sun isn't out shining. just blah."


"IBM looks horrible on the 5th gens in my opinion. Might as well get black like everyone else if your getting a color that dark. They should of just kept ABM much nicer."

That just makes IBM rarer and probably worth more in like 20 years.

Scott,

You should take a picture of the model along with your car.

Hah! What a joke....IBM is the real blue and GM has a rich heritage with it (or very close resemblances); my '93 pick up was Indigo Blue Metallic (very slight differences). Sounds like pure envy to me...who would chose the ABM (sissy) blue over IBM...not sure about that!!

I'll be looking for the IBM'ers at C5F III for Team IBM!!

I like how the red pinstripes complement your red brakes. Also like your model that is posing with your car!

I'm going to order an IBM 2SS, how does this combo sound....

IBM, CGM Rally stripes, RS Midnight Silver Wheels, Gray Interior.


Anyone think the different silvers/grays will clash too much, maybe should go with the Black interior? Leaning toward the Gray interior to reduce interior temps out in the sun and lessen the black cave type feeling.

I thought the RS MS wheels looked a bit dark on my car. I have custom painted AR Torque Thrust M's that are gray but lighter than the stock gray AR wheels. If I had it to do over again I would have gone with the polished wheels just to brighten the wheel/tire area.... the CGM rally stripes will look good... stick with the gray interior, I have beige and see no clash....

Good point. I have RS MS wheels on my '10 IOM now, and I really like them. But maybe on the darker IBM the polished wheels would look better.

Just the opposite here LOL We all have different tastes. Didn't want the chrome or polished look(but would not have passed the car up either if it had polished wheels option) Like the MS RS wheels silver stripes. Have seen an IBM with chrome and polished wheels and it looks sharp. Originally wanted and tried to get gray interior. Just couldn't find it around with a manual Hurst back earlier in the year on a '11. Have grown to really love the black interior(with the silver panels/ambient lighting) and does not nearly show dirt as much as gray interior cars have owned in the past. Buy what you like It will look sharp no matter what you choose with IBM

Not opposite just different and a good different cause I don't want my car looking like every other IBM car out there... here are a couple of pics of my car the day it was delivered to the dealer. Yes a cloudy day and the pics are iPhone quality but this is where I'm thinking they look a touch dark on the IBM... oh and as for the rain, only time my car will ever see it and I spent two weeks cleaning every nook and cranny on the car...
