i see there is only 4 orange and 1 blue made, is there some kind of problem with the paint or whats going on. i ordered my car on the first day you could order and guys who ordered a few months later already have a vin!!!

Well Kev....it's all theory from here..but we have been told that "the plant can paint any color at any time"...this probably is true..but I don't think thats how they are doing it..I think a couple weeks down the road we will see the next "batch" being IOM IBM ABM and CGM if it comes off constraint...just my humble Opinion...I know they are supposedly doing all right now but I don't think so..too fishy to me. I know black was the most ordered color so maybe they are doing them according to popularity..anyones guess..noone seems to wanna comment on this besides us..I sure hope I'm wrong though.

Not that I'm doubting your numbers, but when I was down at the GM plant last week, I must have counted at least 20 orange Camaros, hundreds of yellow ones, but I don't remember seeing many blue ones

see my thread below for pics

Those 4 IOMs that were made were done in the first 233 cars built. None have been made since. And it might be the second most popular color.

Today at work I saw about 15 or so IOM's
and about 6-7 Aqua Blue ones...

Trust me people.. they are producing every color right now..
That vin tracking system isnt entirely correct.

Take care,
Dylan

Well....hopefully I'll be eating my hat soon (ref above quote from Dylans other posting today). If Dylan says they are being made I'd consider that information straight from the horse's mouth. Yup...we're all wishing we knew more, but posts like his certainly make the waiting a little bit easier.

Have some patience. Sure some members have had their cars built already but GM never promised us that our cars would be built 3 weeks after the start of production did they?

Kinda did? No they didn't. The plant decides what get's built when and it doesn't mean first in, first out.

You are right Kev...It's not a hard question to answer...but they won't for some reason.

Who is "they"? fbodfather? I would actually be surprised if he knew the answer without having to go find out himself. And frankly these sorts of things are part of the production ramp-up and shouldn't really be a surprise.

Black and silver are more popular than orange and blue. Victor red is about the same as imperial blue (much more popular than aqua blue), and yellow is about the same as orange (and aqua blue). Also, orange and aqua blue were consistantly 'love it or hate it' while nobody objected to victory red. Imperial blue? No idea whats going on there. Rally yellow? Dealers want to have Bumble Bee sitting in their showroom ...

So ,what your saying is..is that they are building cars according to color popularity...and not by order date and dealer allocation and consensus??

Definitely not by order date. Just ask all the CGM guys! The most important thing is the supply of parts required for the various orders. Also, 95% the dealer cars were either silver, red or yellow as GM had indicated in the last IDL.

Previous polls on this site indicated IOM as the 2nd or 3rd most popular color. As far as yellow.....they are everywhere. Look at any picture of cars in the storage lot, on transports or on the line. Yellow, yellow and more yellow, and I have yet to hear of anyone who ordered yellow complaining that their car is not getting builit, that its been at 3000 for over a month, or at 3400 for over a week. So why are IOM owners getting stiffed when its been available since day one and was never on constraint? Now that CGM is being made are they going to take even more spots away from IOM to make those?

We have two members here who have their IOM orders at 3800 so don't say they aren't getting built.
