if we get six of us we can get Aqua Blue Metallic as Option

Hello,

I would like to see if there is enough interest to ge Aqua Blue Metallic as Option for our ZL1 orders. Please post if you would be interested so that GM could do a special run of that color during our builds when we order. Robert

I expect that GM will offer a new blue for the ZL1 but I doubt it will be aqua blue metallic.

It will not be a standard color offer, it will be a limit runthus the need for at least six who will want it.

You mean to tell me that GM will make a special run of a color for only six people????? I'll believe that when I see it

I'm thinking you either REALLY misunderstood the person you talked to or the person you talked to was drunk, high, and/or stupid.

Maybe they knew of a shop (dealer or independant) that could cut a deal on repainting them if six people were to go in?

dealer will prob have the painted at a local shop... and 6 orders off the bat would be great jump for a dealer.... but from the factory I dont think so. on a production scale that is just silly.

I just want them to bring ABM or similar back! GM are you listening? Why would you take away such a beautiful color? Everyone was just getting around to seeing the color and BAM out of no where GM said it will be discontinued.

I sincerely suggest you find another dealer as quickly as humanly possible.

Either you've encountered the world's stupidest Chevrolet dealer...or they're lying straight to your face and enjoying every minute of it.

Aqua Blue is done. It unfortunately did not sell enough to justify its existence. And Chevy/the plant won't do a limited run of a single color for any amount of people...let alone an insignificant six.

Now...maybe there was a misunderstanding at some point? Maybe he was talking about repainting the cars for you six whenever he takes delivery??

What you posted (if that's what he was trying to say) is simply out of the question.:(

jet stream blue and Aqua Blue are almost identical. So I think if it was GM they wouldn't use that color

Your dealer is an idiot. They do not call the shots with GM despite their egos. I'm guessing that your dealer was given everything the toy store could offer as a child. That would explain what your dealer thinks 6 orders is enough to justify changing an entire assembly line that will affect a hundred thousand other customers. If GM offers any additional colors on the Camaro, it has nothing to do with your dealer.

They're not the same at all.

Go to a dealer and check out abm on something, (actually, I don't think they put aqua on anything now - idk) then jsb on a Vette.

I hate green in my blue. That's why it didn't sell. Green mixed with blue is not blue.

GM's done enough right that I'll just take vr.

Unless they want to make a true blue Camaro.

So.... I talked to my dealer today. If I can get 7 people on the internet to just post up that they want the ZL1 to weigh 3400 lbs, they will do it.

GM listens to it's customers VERY closely. ABM was one of if not the lowest pentration color. Yes, the few that bought it were certainly passionate about it, but the overall volume was very low.

Limited runs in a paint shop are all but impossible. Yes, in the past, GM has done Mary Kay Pink for some cars, but to do 6 of a discontinued color? I would say all but impossible.
