But see how effective all our freaking out was at eliciting some official information? Such as that the Camaro really will be offered in some kind of green?

For me, I'm just not a lighter green kind of guy. Sour Apple Green (and variations thereof) is on my list of colors in which cars should not be painted. Just my opinion...

Wow!
I never thought that I would have started such a hot thread. By no means did I have any intentions on causing any controversy and stirring the pot. We just stumbled across this info at the dealership on the “Hot Sheet” and I just wanted to see if anyone had any more info or insight on this color. I was extremely excited when we came across this. I am one of those rare salesmen that takes pride in knowing their product. I do everything I can to expand my knowledge on the product that I stand by. Especially the Camaro! Since I am truly a Camaro enthusiast and owner. Camaro5 and its members have been a great resource and have help me out tremendously with my quest of knowledge. So thanks guys! If they are offering a green, regardless of the shade I think it is a great thing. The more choices for the customer the better in my eyes. I also think it’s great to see the creativity and imagination of the members of this forum.


Thanks!

Exactly. Since Fbod came on here and said that the green on that Silverado isn't even close, we are back to square one on what it will look like.

So keep your head up bro!

purple/violet

Since people seem to be in the mood for photoshopping, anyone care to show me what it would look like in a dark metallic purple (similar to the one that was offered in a LE on the Trans Am...see here). I don't care that it isn't what would normally be considered a 'guys' color...I think it makes it stand out and it looks bad ass. Imagine that w some cyber gray stripes...

If you're going to choose a green that you want to stand out, at least pick something unique and go for broke:

Now honestly, out of those three and this Mustang below, which green concept would you have pursued if you were GM?



"GM's ability to create Epic Fail Moments during this car's development simply will not be impeded".

Wow --

Exactly what do you mean by that?

Details, please.

Further, what makes you think that any of the colors you've seen thusfar are actually:

1. Correct in color and shading

or

2. That we're going to offer a green in any of the shades seen above?


I'm all for discourse in all things Camaro..........but "Epic Fail Moments?"

I've actually driven that SEMA truck -- in and out of Several Auto Shows.

Let me assure you that the picture does not reflect the real color of the vehicle.

I do hope the real shade turns out to be darker and deeper. But, then again, I'm probably getting the dark blue anyway, so what do I care what the colors I'm not getting look like?

Of all the greens I've seen in this thread, the Frost Green on the '69 and the older Chevy truck are the best, followed by the green on the new Mustang.

So I would not mind at all if they added a similar color to Camaro's palette.

and the speculation goes rampant once again
and considering GM pulled off an "Epic WIN" on the car's design, and fbodfather has said that the pictures don't reflect what the color looks like at all, i trust our fearless leaders judgement and hope that it's a sweet looking green.

So, assuming of course that these pictures do the color no justice, is the Synergy Green Metallic on the SEMA Silverado the same color going on the 2010 Camaro?

I grew up looking at paint chips, I learned early in life you can't visualize what a cars' color really looks like until you see it in person.

The popularity of a color comes and goes faster than bell bottom pants.

If you like green but you're disappointed, wait till you see it on the car, then speak your mind.

If you don't like green and wasn't planning on getting it in the first place, why are you even commenting in this thread?

I agree with milk.
The darker more emerald greens look much better!! IMHO
