Post Camaro Color Vote: RESULTS

First off, let me say to each and every one of you who participated:

THANK YOU!

The voting was a hit with John F., and you guys were wonderful in the thread. No long conversations, very few mistakes (really!), and an overall professional job on the thing. It made it SOooo much easier to collect. So again, thanks so much!!

Then, I want to thank John, Cheryl, and Scott for including us(the Camaro community) in this research. As I told them, this inclusion of the enthusiast community is part the reason I stay so faithful to Camaro, Chevy, and GM in general -- and I'm sure some of you share my feelings. I mean; name another car that's had this much enthusiast involvement during development, and came out looking, feeling, and sounding so great. The Camaro really is unique in that aspect. It's the passion and friendliness with which the Camaro team, and the company seems to do business these days that's going to put them ahead, imo. And we are all first-hand witnesses to this renaissance.

But...without further ado --- the RESULTS!!!

We had Six-Hundred and Forty-six people rank the Camaro colors in that thread.......yep...read it again:
646!!!

And the Colors were ranked as follows:

Black..........................7.06
Summit White...............4.24
Rally Yellow..................4.28
Victory Red
..................5.82
Cyber Gray Metallic
.......7.01
Silver Ice Metallic
..........5.86
Inferno Orange Metallic...5.44
Red Jewel Tinticoat
.......5.25
Aqua Blue Metallic
.........4.29
Imperial Blue Metallic
.....5.90

Here's a more "colorful" excel spreadsheet. It's version 1997-2003, so almost anyone should be able to open it. Thanks going out to GM'r_For_Life for giving me the idea to make all the color breakdown pages, and thanks goes out to Camaropete for the use of his pie chart!

Excel Spreadsheet


Thanks again, everybody!!!

A more "colorful" Excel spreadsheet attachment will be included shortly. When it's available (expected sometime tomorrow), I'll update the OP, and bump the thread.

Thanks again, everybody!!!

Let me echo Dragoneye in his thanks.

Guys, we were very fortunate when asked to do this.

Thanks for all the responses...and thanks for keeping the chatting to a minimum!

Hopefully we can participate in something like this again for GM in the near future.

...and thank you John for asking for our input!

+1... Big thanks to all the members who participated. This is what makes this such a great place to hang out...

Remember, it is a great honor to help GM out.

Fascinating how close they all come. I'm glad a few didn't blow all the rest out. Then I'd be worried they would limit our choices.

Wow that was pretty close throughout! I wonder what that poll would be like if we actually had a CGM camaro to see? It might get a few more votes, maybe. Pretty cool poll, thanks for letting us participate!

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.
