Why are there No Blue Camaro's being built!

Does anybody have an Idea why there are no BLUE SS cars listed in the Vin# thread?...I find it hard to believe everyone ordered black yellow red and silver. I thought they could spray any color at any time? Are they waiting on something?? Zedder?? any one?? (crickets chirping)

While it is suspicious, I wouldn't take it as being the complete answer. There's LOTS of possible vins missing. Maybe there's just not many blue SS's ordered? Who knows... maybe this has something to do with the ol "no blue on SS" thing?

It is suspicious that there are barely any seen, but there are recent built ABM ones at Oshawa in the little side lots and stuff

Well they didnt seem like they were moved. So im not sure, but we havnt heard any constraints, maybe its just more rare. I dont think it should be that rare though, but once you see it in person, you might get into an accident, its soo distracting

I would guess because the orders they are building now are mostly from October. When these orders were placed, no one had seen ABM except for the ugly pic on the chevy.com site. That, plus ABM and IBM were not available on the SS. So that's why I'm guessing that most of these early orders are not blue...

most VIN's we are seeing are ordered cars, remember that the Blue colors were not available as SS models until November/ December, so they are going to be later in run of mostly SS's being made, my guess.

If you have a TPW, then that means that your car has been submitted. I would asume that if there was a constraint on the blues, then your car would not have been submitted at all. Just like with the CGM. The orders had to be changed befor submitting it.

Hmmm... my original order was 10/13 for CGM but when IBM became available I switched it. My order sheet still shows my order date as 10/13. I am also first in line at my dealer. I agree, they are probably waiting to do a run of IBM and ABM at the same time.
If there is a constraint I wish they would let us know. Then I could stop bugging my dealer constantly to see if my order has been pulled.

There is no constraint on blue. It has not been listed in the constraint reports to dealers. Maybe there was some sort of issue and they aren't painting blue right now but there is no "constraint" at this time.

Hopefully not many will order blue so they will be that much rarer. Especially if I decide to order an ABM.

When we badgered GM into putting blue on the SS, Fbod said there were some logistics involved, and the blue ones will be slightly delayed.

Would be nice to get an update from Scott or another Oshawa entity...

But, they're coming, just a little delayed.
