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.

Do silicone breast implants on a nun make her 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?
Hehe, DITTO!

Same exact reason for me too.

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

That says a lot coming from someone who has seen all the colors and then some.
Welcome to the IOM side...

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.
