Orange sucks

You don't want orange in Florida, all you'll be missing is the sunkist/minute maid sticker. Orange sucks dump it. NO ONE GET ORANGE IT REALLY BLOWS.

Yellow with black striping can even make this look hot:

I'm driving home from work the other day and I made a point to really notice all the cars around me. All I see is a sea of grays, dull blacks, and beige colors. All these dull earth tones that all blend into one big mass of boring.

To me, the Camaro is meant to stand out. It desires a color of passion. So, I called my dealer up and switched to IOM. It's not for everyone but I like the color.

I know some people don't want to stand out, they'd rather fit in and not be noticed. But me, I want everyone on the street to see me coming and think "damn, look at that pimp machine."

So what say you? Why'd you pick the color that you did?
Actually, I really like the yellow. That being said, I just got done with a Yellow Jacket 04 GTO and I'm about all yellowed out. Twas time for a change. Since most of the colors are available on other models I went around to look at them, as well as checked out all the various photochop threads. After really only a couple days of screwing around, I chose RJT; of course the only friggin additional cost color currently available. Really, each person has their own personal color preferences and only God knows where they came from. For me, the RJT is just an outstanding color, but that's only my opinion. No one's color choice is right or wrong.

Sorry, zombie, no it can't. That thing is still fugly! But the Camaro with twin black rally stripes will be very hot.

Now me personally, I think black is even more hideous than IOM. Absolutely no one should even think about buying a dull, boring black one. YUCK!!!

Its funny you mention that. I'm either going with either Silver or CGM for the exact same reason you aren't.

It will blend in nicely, which should at least save me a ticket or two. Don't get the wrong idea, I'm not street racing or anything...but its my experiance that people in fast cars get pulled over more then people in Impalas, even if the Impala just blew past you..lol.

While there is no "right or wrong" choice when it comes to colors, and it such a personal decision, I'm totally with you on the gray....in certain light it can look good, but it is gray....I've been anguishing with Red Jewel tintcoat. It looks "killer" in certain light conditions, but in most light, it looks like "drab red" to me....So I'm leaning towards Victory Red. Want something upbeat that doesn't just blend in.

Hehe, DITTO!

Same exact reason for me too.

I was up in the air with IOM, CGM, and IBM.

I am actually switching from silver to black... I think its anything but boring the depth i have seen on this car with that color is unmatched.... When it is paired with some polished 20's and 420+ hp i think this car will do anything but "blend" in with the sea's of honduhs and hundays of the world. Now if we had a option of SOM as an oragne i would be all over that Like white on rice....

SOM is one sexy color maybe thats why i have such a hard time digging the IOM??? Either way this car is bound to stand out where ever it goes we are all in for a treat

Good try


When I visit your sunny state I will drop by and we can cruise south beach. Two IOM cars will look awesome either parked or cuising.

Just switched my color from black to Victory Red with cyber gray stripes and black interior.I am sick of tan and gray interiors and I have never had a black interior.I saw this color at Chicago Auto Show on a SS. It was striking,it brought out all the details on the car.With black,everything was just one color,grill,interior,lower rear facia,tires,just a sea of blandness! Also,black is a Mother of a color to keep clean!This car bags to be noticed and with Red,it screams,Look At Me!
I thought about IOM,bot I got color chips from the dealer and compared them to Atomic Orange on the Corvette and IOM does look like a Tomato.

I agree about the interiors. I wish they had full color interiors like in the past. With a green interior, you'd get green seats, dashboard, door panels, headliner, carpet, etc. I'm very bored with the corporate tan and gray colors.

As far as Cyber Gray goes, it's still just gray. Just as drab as ever, even with the blue flakes. If I were getting a new Camaro, I'd probably get the Red Jewel Tintcoat.

CGM is a nice color compared to just a plain ole grey.

Most people who are saying they don't like black/ grey or white is because its a sea of those colors... and I doubt you plan to do some custom painting to your car.

CGM, 2 toned with ABM... that is why I'm going with CGM.

Well, I know that if you put a dress on a pig you've still just got a pig; but the dress can look good.

I picked SIM with CGM stripes. I like silver because of the lines. I wanted CGM stripes to give it a bit of personality, so my car wouldn't look exactly like the debut car we've seen for awhile. Plus admittedly, SIM by itself might get a little boring over time, so some stripes will give it some pizazz.
It's also subtle enough not to stand completely out in a crowd, but just enough
As an FYI, I've ALMOST switched to IOM /w CGM stripes a few times already, but I want them lines, so stickin' with SIM!

Cool color

I was thinking of going with the CGM as the base for my Camaro two tone with 1967 Paint code 40 (Butternut Yellow) on bottom for the new old school look. Right now its going to be flat black and 40. I want people to look, just not screem look.

Agree with you on the RJT. Wish they offered a blue jewel tintcoat like the corvette

I opted for Victory Red. I saw the Camaro in this color last Spring when it was at the Renaissance Center, GM Headquarters and I was in awe. I've always had dark colored cars and wanted to try a fun color.
