OooOooo...Scotch Plaid ZL1...I'm actually kind of curious...
(think...Space Balls )

As I recall from the History Channel documentary on the new Camaro, the painting area at the Oshawa plant can paint two sequential cars two different colors without any overspray even though they're only about 10 feet from each other.

If that's the case, I don't understand why the computers can't be re-programmed to handle more than ONLY 10 colors. But being that I am not familiar technically with the specific equipment used, I can only accept, as a consumer, whatever Chevrolet is willing to offer as the available options.

It's a bummer for sure :(

If they would replace IBM with this color, I think a large amount of the disappointment would go away.

I don't have a clue, but I'm trying to figure out how to shorten "Ludicrous Speed" down to 6 or 7 characters for a personalized license plate

It does resemble a blue IMO-- BMW Steel Blue Metallic (Stahlblau Met.)-- I used to own one. It's definitely more gray than blue but in the right light it looks steel blue.

If we do want to order an IBM SS - any word on roughly how long we have to get the order in? A week .... A month?

I planned on ordering in the spring, but looks like that may be moving up.

Russell-- you need to do it now, because from what I understand, they are going to stop producing it a week after they begin production of the ZL-1, or the second week in January. And I'm afraid if you wait very long at all they might kick your order back.

I am one of the people affected by this and what alot of you are failing to realize is the CAR is more important than the color.

My ZL1 order is now for black rather than imperial blue.

Like I said the CAR is more important than the color.
