Thanks for the input and congrats on your new ride! But by "rallys" I meant the stripes. It didn't occur to me till just now about "rally wheels"

I have been drooling over the 2010 Camaro back when it was known as a 2009. My first choice was going to be Black on Black, but seeing how I currently own a black car, and it's a PAIN-IN-THE-@$$ to clean, I decided on CGM, with Black rallys. Now, I am currently on an ABM fix and I can't decide on black rallys or white, although I do catch a lot of ABM/White rallys, both here on the forum and on Google search. So I'm leaning toward ABM/Black combo (interior - that's a WHOLE 'nother issue!)

I am currently testing the waters and went down Balise Chevy last night and talked to a Brian and a Michael (I don't recall their last names). They seemed to be pretty nice guys and Brian knew A LOT about the new Camys. I have yet to tried Masse but I am willing to give 'em a shot. Anyhow, when I am ready to bite the proverbial bullet, any thoughts as to who/where/how much it would cost to PAINT the rallys in the state??? Also, I tend to see a lot of SIMs around here (I wasn't too keen on it until I saw it in person) as well as an IOM, and apparently there are going to be a lot of ABMs (that I have YET to see and am dying to!!!). Any thoughts on what would be a unique color choice? Just an opinion is all I'm asking - kinda like buying a really cool shirt and going to a place or an event and having three other people wearing the same shirt, lol. Anyways, my apologies for a long first-post. Hope to be seen on the road sometime soon!

---Ken:bangdesk:

PS: Anyone here drive a SIM/Black Rally that was at Roy Carpenter's Beach during the 4th of July weekend?
There are not a lot of ABM's ordered yet, that may change when people start seeing them. White stripes look good on ABM. Mine is ABM with gray interior, no stripes. Lots of compliments on the color, I mean LOTS! Red Jewel Tintcoat is also very nice.
Brian LaNinfa was my salesman at Balise, nice guy, knows what he is talking about and he also does the ordering. He was on my side when I had my little issue there. Make sure paperwork is flawless and sales manager approves it if you order from there.

Thanks, Paul, for the input. I just got a call from Mike at Balise to inform me that there was a "BumbleBee" on the lot and if I wanted to come down there and take it out. Unfortunately, I was at band practice and couldn't go. Hoping it'll still be there in the morning to test drive it.

For those interested in black, Laul Masse in East Prov got two 2SS units in same shipment that brought in mine! One has IOM trim on black interior with matching stripes. The other has white stripes but unsure of interior... The black/iom has auto with the paddle shifters... Not sure what's in the other...

Mine is SHARP(of course I'd say that, right?)... Had it at Crescent Park on Sat and Cardi's last night... Drawing a LOT of interest at both... Trying for Foxboro Bass Pro Shop Thursday if weather cooperates

BluesSinger, I custom ordered my 2010 SSRS IOM from Brian Laninfa at Balise in Warwick, I highly recommend you and any other RI camaro lovers to buy your 2010 Camaro from him, tell him Joe with the Orange SSRS told you.
Brian is a top knotch guy and he will set you up with the exact Camaro you want, I am so happy with mine, I love this car so much, everywhere I go it attracts crowds, I drive through Oakland Beach car cruise every Tuesday night and it is so awesome the way everybody looks at the car, I feel like a celebrity when i'm driving it.

That yellow one has been getting around. I saw one just like that at my dealer (Balise) for a couple days and it was spotted near Rocky Point today. I don't think he or she is a member here.

If you see a IOM SS/RS with black Rallies around Providence it's probably me.

Lucky SoB!!! My girlfriend said she's seen a black one a few times around Smithfield and I saw one (I THINK it was IB) recently at the Police Depot on Rt.6, near Cindy's Diner.

I went to Hurd Chevrolet Monday, they were closed, but they had 2 SSRS Camaros outside, one was Black with Silver racing stripes and the other was Cyber Gray with Orange stripes, 2 awesome Camaros.
I wanted to see the White SS, but it must have been inside.

BluesSinger, I just checked Hurds website, the Cyber Gray SS, the Black SS and an Acqua Blue SS they have listed, but the White one must have been sold, I want to see a White one, that is the only color I have not seen in person.

I was at hurd last week to pick up my plates. I saw the two CGM cars and they had an ABM with white rally stripes inside. Nice color but one of the dealers made a good point. It had rs package and came with the midnight silver wheels and they don't look as good with the white stripes. Silver stripes or the polished wheels would look better. Still looks good but just seems a little off.

Ok, so today I was in Warwick and I spotted a Rally Yellow with factory hockey stripes turning off of Airport Rd. Nice ride, whoever you are! Also, I stopped by Balise and they had two V6's - an IOM with Black stripes and a Victory Red. Both RSs. I bring this up because the IOM looked like it had PAINTED black stripes. They were glossy. Are they doing glossy stripes and/or painting at the factory now???

I have not seen the yellow one yet here in Warwick, I live right near Airport road, was it an SS? I drove through Balise lot last Thursday when it was pouring out, I seen that Orange Camaro sitting outside and the Red one was in the showroom.

Yet another sighting: the other day I saw a Black V6 w/ White Rallys on Twin River Rd. in Lincoln, almost heading toward CCRI. Looked nice. Later that night I saw a silver RS (I dont know if it was a V6 or not) headed from Kirkbrae Country Club.

Can you add me as a Rhode Island member too... I'm in RI as much as I'm in MA. I bought my car there from BaliseCamaro 2010 so my car should be a member at least.

The Scituate Art Festival one was likely mine... I was parked in the VEE split in the road entering the vllage... I've been running the car a lot now that the mods are complete... took delivery Labor Day and now just over 5,000 miles... LOVE that CAR!

Why not, you have R.I. connections in a few ways.

Yup, that was you.

How was the festival? My wife wanted to go, but when we saw how crowded it was she didn't want to go anymore...so we spent a couple hours to go 1 mile through Scituate on the way home. :(
