Yep. And does anyone wonder why they went bankrupt? Lutz was wrong. The bean counters are back in charge...and the same results.

Well, what do I do if something happens to my IBM, like someone keys it or I decide to put a different hood/front facia on it? Does this mean that I'll have to repaint my whole car?

The 2012 Chevy Cruze is available with blue topaz metallic. Why couldn't that be a color option for the Camaro?

I've been holding out for a Synergy green 2SS but my wife and I agreed that if there is a Baby blueish metallic, Polo green or Gold Metallic, we're getting that color.

You know...that's interesting. I'd buy a gold camaro...but then again, I'm an old fart. Not sure too many young people would buy gold, but I'd really like to see what it would look like.

I recently ordered my IBM Camaro (October), I wonder how many more after mine were produced. I also wonder how many 2012 IBMs were produced.

Paint will still be available to repaint parts. No different than ABM. Pre-painted parts will be hard to come by after inventory is depleted from venders shelves. If you were liking to buy I'd order them now. Hate to see no blue offered for Camaro in near future. :(

...sweet, mine just got a bit more rare...

I have always been curious how they handle vehicle repairs with a discontinued color.

Well, I was going to trade my 2LT IBM on a Z/28 when they came out. I'll have to try on holding onto it now and give it to my son to keep.

It will be decades, if ever, that these cars are collectables. A color isn't going to make it more valuable, any more than a serial number, other than number 1.

My IBM is being built this week. I ordered in October.. whew.. I'll feel better when I get a VIN.

From FBODFATHERS Post, it looks like orders for Non ZL1 ibm are still being accepted and that the cutoff dates for these models in IBM will be announced shortly.

I wouldnt say that... if i look on autotrader or kijiji, Aqua blue camaros are always 3-6 grand more expensive than other colors of equal trim and options, and they sell
