How do Black or White 1LE look in person

Trying to decide on black or white. I have seen photos, but never see any photos of them together with same lighting.

For you guys that have seen them in person how do they look? Do you have any good photos to compare with? Does the black look to monotone? Thanks.

I'd go with white over black. For some reason I like the hood wrap on all colors but
black and blue. I think it looks particularly good in white, would really be set off with
some black ZL1 rockers too (only $350).

I'd probably remove the wrap if I got a black or blue one, and still be thrilled.

Hmm. I've seen both. I would say a clean looking black 1LE, just being washed is amazing. Clean and very sleek looking(especially at dusk). White on the other hand stands out, especially considering the black vinyl hood on any given day or time. Another beautiful color.

Each one has its pros and cons, just depends on what you like. I was also torn between the 2 colors as well as BRM. Needless to say I went with the BRM. My favorite color is white btw. I attached two 1LEs I was looking at locally. Hope this helps...

Thanks for the photos. I really like the black look it seems like it highlights the camaro bulges better, but I know how hard black is to keep clean and swirl free.

I wonder how they look on the track or in the pits.

I personally love the white 1LE. If I could order another Camaro right now that is exactly what I would order. I even think I would take it over the ZL1 and mod the 1LE to my taste with the left over money. But that is just me personally

I could careless how it looks on a track of in a pit. Be concerned with how it looks in your driveway. Just saying.

Did you actually make it home?

White with the 1LE is a no brainer.

Don't ask me for color advice. . I would go black if it's between that and white, but really I haven't seen an ugly 1LE yet. Try to see one in person if you can. Personally I'll end up with Victory Red if the 2014s don't come out with a color I have to have.

I actually lost sleep when I ordered mine wondering if I made the right decision. But as soon as I first laid eyes on it at the dealership, it only took a split second to know I made the right decision. I do love the all black look!!! Just didn't want to spend so much time cleaning and to have it dusty and dirty looking 5 min later.

A couple of guys in my neighborhood have 1968's and 1967's in the garage, always look good in orange. I bet they would rush my house if I came home with an orange 1le

Between the black or white I think the white looks better has some nice contrast. If you like the black, take serious look at BRM or even AGM, the matte wrapped hood looks better alongside something else other than black IMHO.

I do like the orange, I am just not sure I want to stand out that much all of the time.

Color conflict

If your even slightly OCD about your paint get the white one the black will drive you nuts,but nothing looks better than swirl free glossy black.
