I happen to disagree with you, I actually wanted this IBM for a long time and I even had it on my Avalanche

We've been building Chevrolets for 100 years - and the paints are available thru our paint suppliers........think about it - if you wrecked a 2002 Camaro -you can still have it repaired...............................even tho we don't offer that paint anymore........

That's extremely disappointing for a corporation as big as GM. That may push a few buyers toward other brands.

Just plain sad.
I think you're jumping to conclusions...........that's never a good idea.

IBM is still available......let's see what happens in the next couple of weeks.......

At least, that was what was there last August. What a bummer.
so order it in January....you will have it in early spring.

Hell, once the Belvedere plant made a 426 Hemi, 4 speed Dodge wagon for a guy. He paid for it, though. My dad helped put a 383 in a 65 Barracuda. Bean counters have substituted THEIR notion of what should be built for the CUSTOMER's notion of what they are willing to buy.

Very good points -- for 1968.........

The world has changed.

And this is not a 'bean counter' issue - please - go back and read my lengthy post.

Sure hoping for a nice ABM-like blue by spring. So next time I go back to KY, I can take this same photo with it. I was really disappointed when ABM was cancelled, and it was a big factor in opting for a deep water blue 10' Challenger instead. But I'm a Camaro guy at heart, so hopefully a sharp looking medium blue 12' Camaro will be in my garage come spring

As other current IBM owners have said, yeah...it makes mine a little more rare. Not like ABM, but still...I love my paint scheme with IBM & SIM Stripes. Absolutely beautiful in the sun.

I really have to say that GM is really dropping the ball on this though. I don't mind IBM itself going away. As Fbodfather said, colors change and adapt over the years. But, to do away with all shades of blue for a year? Blue is not an uncommon color. There are very few car models that don't come with some form of blue. Bad decision, GM...

Would you please show me where I said that Blue is going away for a year????

You can still order IBM.

Right now.

Not on a ZL1.

But on an LS

And an LT

and an SS.

And - you don't know what we plan to offer in the future......so please - -I'm begging you to the point of where i want to hang myself from the nearest tree - please -- don't jump to conclusions.

All will be fine.

As I said - we have dropped colors in the past - and then we came out with more colors......and people found out that dropping "Palomino Ivory" might be painful - but there were more colors coming that captivated them.....

Why is everyone saying there is going to be no blue for 2012? How do you guys know that they won't announce another blue? I am sure they will.

Wow, God was really looking out for me when I ordered my '12 in IBM! Blue truly was the only color I wanted my Camaro in, and I can't thank you enough, Scott, for telling me to wait because I'd get it.
