Everyone Please Read/Reply: Least Favorite Pictures of Aqua Blue Metallic?

So, I know this probably seems like a weird thread (especially since I've got an Aqua Blue Camaro on order), but I'd like to get people's opinions on the "worst" pictures of Aqua Blue Metallic. Basically, I'd like to see what it is that turns you off from the color. I've seen what I interpret as the best of the color. Now how about the worst?

Everyone's entitled to his/her own opinion. No flaming allowed.

For example, this is probably the "worst" picture of Aqua Blue I've seen.

Have not seen the Camaro Aqua in person but I have seen the color we make it in the HHR and way to teal for me just don't like it at all.

Sure, but I'm really looking for pictures that people have, rather than opinions based on seeing it in person. The opinions don't help me until I can actually see it on the Camaro or Colorado in person.

If you let me know your Zip code I will look up a car and tell you where there is an HHR or similar car with that color near you so you can go see it.

I've actually seen it on the HHR... just not recently. I'm more interested in seeing it on less curvy metal (like the Colorado or the Camaro), but I guess anything should suffice to a degree.

In my eyes, that picture is almost a direct representation of what Aqua Blue is. I always wanted my 5th gen to be ABM, but this changed my mind quickly.

I think its a nice looking color, I've seen it on new vettes in the showroom and looks great. IMO it has too much green in it. If it was more like the GTO blue, I would have it in a second.

See, I like the pictures posted so far. I'm not as hot on the kind of dark teal hues you get in the shade. Like in this pic



But I can deal with it.

I've seen it in person, and have pictures posted on photobucket at the following link:
I personally think it's a killer colour, and would be my # 2 choice behind the IOM

I took this pic last Saturday at the racers reunion in Columbia. I can't say anything bad about it because it looked awesome in the bright Carolina sunshine.

They ALL look good in the sunlight. I saw the IOM in the sunlight.

Black looks good in ANY light.

It was in Columbia? Dammit! Could have stopped by on the way up to Greensboro!

Thanks for the pictures, everyone, but that wasn't exactly the point of the thread. I'd love to see which pictures turn you off from ABM.

This is an easy one for me. The pic that immediately turned me off was the Disney pic. The shade of Aqua in this pic has too much green hue or something. I also think the heritage wheels ruined it for me too. Not sure any color would look good with those wheels IMO.

Okay, but what if the wheels were different? If you cover up the wheels, does the color look better?

Sorry, I edited my post and added a comment about the shade of aqua in this pic that had too much green hue in it (if I said that right). This color looks fine in other lighting conditions but when you asked for the worst pic, this one immediately came to mind.

Do you mean the same color as the GTO pic?? Unless that pic has some really unusual lighting for effect, I would have to disagree. That is neither the same as ABM or IBM. ABM has more green in it and IBM is much much darker than that. JMO

Yeah, your right. The GTO blue is called IBM, but it's not the same.

ABM was going to be my color choice and when I saw it in person on a HHR I din't get within 10 feet and said NO. If it was a blue metalic I probably whould have taken it, but that green fade it has is UGLY. Well that is just my opinion.

It's been discussed before that this color does some funny things with angled vs. curved metal. I'm hoping to see it on a Colorado (or even a Camaro) in person before passing that kind of judgment.
