Thanks! That's awesome.

To save mine, I just did a print-screen and pasted the image into Paint, then saved it. Using it now as my avatar.

Quick question for those with paint cost knowledge....Which would cost me less to have done? Start with a black car and paint the bottom red or start with a red car and paint the top black?

I just want to do the exterior and don't plan on doing door jambs, under the hood/trunk, etc...

I'm glad everyone is enjoying themselves

And, that's a good tip on saving it too. I now use my blue with white stripes Camaro for my avatar.

Well...if you are not doing the door jams and you want the less expensive of the two, I'd buy the car w/ the color you want on the bottom...then, you paint the top and won't have to worry about those door jams being a different color.

My computer won't let me do that(kicking it), I can get the "print-screen" but that's all. I'm still sticking with the nonbumble-bee yellow w/ black stripes, or the red w/ hocky stripes or double stripes on the hood.

I just hope that they offer the Camaro in something similar to the Crystal Red Metallic Tintcoat that is offered on the Corvette. I want a deeper red rather than a "plastic" looking red that most cars have as an option. If the red looks awful, I guess I'll go with black or graphite (if available) and have the bottom painted something like this, along with a thin silver pinstripe to highlight the lines.

Still gotta be a nice yellow with stripes for me. Besides the obvious Bumblebee thing what with me being a Transformers fan, I also think that the combo just makes the car work like no other. And it's perfect for this normally dreary country for car colors.

I want a blue, dark blue. Possibly stripes. But I think it might be a little too much. I want it as a daily driver and the Camaro makes a bold enough statement as is.

but probably just black

Black Graphite Metallic like the Trailblazer SS...

or Gunmetal grey with some black stripes...

or just plain evil looking black, which incidentally will be the same color as the disposition of Mustang owners when they realize what they passed up

I'm stuck between these three, I love the orange color that the Concept 'Vert was in, but I love the blue/white combos as well. I'm sure by time it comes out my mind will change one million times.

That blue one is my avatar and desktop background. I think that's what I want. They had similar to that in 1969 too.
