If so, how have you been? What is your current status with GM?

Met you in California in ~2000.
Guilty as charged!

Am still with GM however unfortunately I'm currently on Medical Leave - hoping to be back in the swing of things shortly.......we have a next gen to bring to you!

Seriously - I've talked about color until I'm ready to drop over.....

....if we offered 50 colors, they'd be the wrong 50.........because Color is so very subjective.

The Magenta color is very controversial -- lots of fists banged desks and conference room tables....and not everyone on the team agreed that this was the best color to offer --.......but I would also tell you that Synergy Green was hugely divisive until people saw the car.

Magenta is a short run - it will be gone for 2015 -- but we've had people ask for it because Challenger offered purple and magenta.......

It's not easy to develop colors when you share the paint system that paints Impala, XTS, Regal, Equinox and the New Impala.......the colors that would be GREAT Camaro colors wouldn't go over very well on, say, an XTS. There are only so many paint slots --

We have brought out Spring Editions in the past -- and special colors for limited runs - there's no reason to believe we won't continue to do so..........


And for what it's worth: We'll have a Spring Edition Convertible and a Magenta Camaro at Camaro5Fest for you to see in person........
Well said! I love the images of this car so far and look forward to seeing it this week at Camaro5 Fest.

I ordered a 2014 Special Spring Edition 2SSRS LS3 coupe. It just arrived at the OKC rail yard today!!! I ordered it "sight unseen", but I knew I couldn't go wrong!
Hope my dealer gets it Tuesday and I can pick her up on Wednesday!

Hope it's nothing too serious, and hope you get well soon. You put a human face on GM and added a special enthusiasm.

I have the same color car, however, I cannot find accessories for her. Primarily, I am looking for a spoiler to start with. Can you offer suggestions? (Sorry to crash your page/picture, I am new here and have no idea how this forum works) Thank you
