For those seven of us that ordered a ZL1 in Crystal Red, as of today, I thought you might like to see what it will look like with with Exposed Hood and Polished Wheels. Special thanks goes to LoneStarCamaro for his great photoshop work.

Thanks, I think that the exposed CF hood and deep red color will make each other 'pop'. It realy makes the Victory Red in the background seem orange in comparison.

I own a new Chevy with the Crystal Red Tintcoat. I love the color. If you are a fan of a deeper, darker, richer red metallic, this is a perfect choice. I don't think anyone interested in it will be dissapointed IMHO.

Wow! Thanks for posting Jedi. That looks great. It reinforces my choice of CRT for my 2013 Convertible.

Yes GB, I thought about your convertible when I posted this. LoneStarCamaro did a good job matching the color. Now if we can just get Chevy to put it on the order guide.

So your thoughts, black insert or exposed weave, on a ibm black wheel zl1. I'm kinda leaning towards the black insert to match the rims and front spliiter

That's my color, and I chose the exposed CF & decal package (stripes) with polished wheels. I'm planning on painting the inner parts of the wheels black with blue pinstriping & blue on the ZL1 cutout.

I agree, crystal red is a great color. I almost bought my car in that color. In that photo posted by the jedi, it looks like a mirror finish. It just does not look like that in real life. I wish it did!

Hmm, so Imperial Blue is more popular than three other colors, at least in this poll.

They must not have pulled it for lack of interest, at least on ZL1.

At first I was all about the Black, but then after seeing the car a million times in Victory red I was all about that color... now I come check out this thread and im torn. That Crystal red tintcoat makes a good case... Grrr

It sure would be nice if GM would realease real pictures of the ZL1 in all colors so we could get a good look and help make this choice easier.

I don't think so.... Considering SIM and Yellow...was less...
BUT... all subjective....

I find it kind of odd at least at this writing we seemed to be left with no blues at all. Kinda freaky...
Maybe they don't want us to get the "blues"
im trying to add a little humor to the subject....
I can imagine your pain though... That is why I think it is always better to have more than one color that you like.. the more the better in case this stuff happens...

I was on the fence between black and IBM, I CAN go back there, but after a month of soul-searching, using the force, etc I decided that IBM was and will be "my color."


Meh, I'll live, even if my Darth Vader Black looks like every fourth Camaro on the road.

If they're doing this because the additive is more expensive now I would be wroth. If you have to charge a premium like with tintcoat, so be it. I just want a blue option or two.

I do apologize for stating the obvious, but there are hundreds of new cars on thousands of lots, and their colors have been "validated." I see lots of cool colors on the Chevy lot. Are those "unvalidated"?

I wish someone would print out that Dusk Blue poll & hand a copy to the people on the color panel.

http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=157824

BTW, this is me when I'm ticked off. Stuff happens, I'll deal with it and hope GM does so as well, soon.
