My wife was warned along time ago when they come out with a color closer to the 69 Royal Blue I will be trading in the 2010. lol
WAY to bright to be IBM. IBM is much darker. Blue Ray Metallic is going to be even darker, if only they would have painted a few cars the new color so people could see what it looks like on a Camaro body instead of trying to track down a 2013 Corvette to see it in person.

Bring ABM back!!

If it's NOT ABM, it's close enough for me!!

If this will be offered as a factory color choice, this means I can FINALLY realize my dream, of owning a Convertible Aqua Blue Metallic Camaro!

Didn't realize they had discontinued ABM. Mine is IBM, knew that color was gone. Whatever color it is, it's nice.

Correction, if they bring back ABM or whatever Blue this is... a deposit will be made on a zl1 vert.

I've had my ABM since August of 2009. Needless to say I know what it looks like in the sun, and in the shade, and if that is not ABM....its the closest thing to ABM I have ever seen...easily as close as or closer than the Jetstream and Stryker Blue pictures I've seen.

I still think it is ABM, and might even be the early ZL1 tester which was painted in ABM. If it isn't ABM and more of an always pure blue than a teal blue (ABM can appear tealish in darker light) then this is THE perfect blue (in my opinion....a true blue with metallic that POPS!

Maybe its Stryker blue...but I'm not sure if Stryker blue on the G8 was a metallic color.

Here are some comparison pics of my car:





Looks damn close to me.

I want this. If they build this color in a ZL1 production car I will definitely be trading in my SS. Come on GM, the palette needs more colors like this. Just don't like the white heat Extractor.

It is a tough call to tell if this ABM by the pics. But if you look at the glare on the front fender you can see the hints of green that i see in mine in certain lights. If it isn't ABM, it is damn near close.

I have it on great authority that this is NOT ABM and the ABM is NOT coming back. I love the color on this car though. Beautiful.

Either way: If they build it, I will buy it.

GM PLEASE BRING BACK AQUA BLUE METALLIC! You can tell by my albums I love colorful Camaros. If ABM returns in 2013 I'll be driving one. Can't afford a ZL1 though.

Seeing the pic in on a cloudy day makes me think this isnt ABM, it looks like more of true blue.

At any rate, now this is SWEET shade of blue, make this color available ASAP.
