Big Blue

Haven't seen many ordered in this color. Hoping, it will be a standout in my area. This car looks amazing in every color... One of the hardest choices I had to made.

I don't know where Cortland is but I hope it's not in North Carolina When I ordered IBM, the dealer said I was the first to order that color from him. Can't wait to see it in person! I love the pics from the MotorTrend article.

Really does seem to be rare. It is an awesome color. Just hope that it being so rare doesn't hold our cars up like with what happened with the cgm folks.

Not sure exactly where I want to take this dream yet, I will prolly wait a few years, let the warrenty work itself out then get to modifing... THe straight pipe is looking good, and CAI is a must... I want to find some ways to lighten it up a bit. Maybe remove the back seat lol... will anyone sit in it anyway?

I ordered IBM too and can't wait. According to the SpasticSquirrel database, there are less than 600 total that have been ordered since day 1. Pretty rare indeed which is great!

Ordered mine in May; I'm at status 3000 right now and dealer emailed me to say it's scheduled to go TPW on the 27th. It's a manual trans order so hopefully this current issue with SS v8's on hold with M6 trans won't be too long. I'm hoping to get it near the end of next month.

Gonna be my fun car; looking forward to modding it.

I ordered my IBM 1SS in May, now has a TPW of 7/13. I am glad this color is rare, and hope it stays rare. I have already seen too many black, yellow, and silver ones to know I made the right choice

I am pretty sure that is LeMans Blue Metallic, which I really wish they offered because I would have no doubts about what color I would be choosing.You can take my slot if you want, I am sure it's a great CAI, but I have one now, thank you for the information.

Not sure what side you are talking about, driver or passenger... Either way the car isn't wrecked. Its either the reflection of the lights, or the flip license plate holder...
