SIM OR Black: Opinions Please!!
Hey Dudes, I am brand new to this site. So here goes my second post.
I will probably place my order within the next couple of days for a 2010 2SS/RS. However, I Just wanted to get a few opinions on color selection.
#1- STRONGLY considering SIM w/ black hockey stick stripes.
The main reason is I have an all original 1969 SS396/375hp L-78 Camaro. It is Cortez Silver w/ black hockey sticks and black tail panel. I think SIM would be a good match to display together w/ it at shows.
I will try and toss out a pic.
The only other choice I have considered is Black on Black w/ flat black stripes. (I think it would look sinister)
Just wanted to grab some different opinions before I order.

I was torn as well but decided it was going to be black\black with black stripes. I love the subtlety in that combo. I going to go with the flat BumbleBee stripes.

First of all, I COVET your 1969 Camaro SS -- it's just KILLER -- esp. with the original SS wheels!!!!
Now -- on to color....
Black is very sinister on the Camaro - -BUT -- it's black which means it's hard to keep clean and it will show every bit of dust.......
Silver, on the other hand:
>Is very close to your 69 Cortez Silver SS....
>Shows every contour line on the body of the new Camaro - -whereas on Black and non-metallic colors, the contour lines and edges tend to disappear.
Now - that said: What REALLY floats your boat?
YOU are the guy that ultimately has to be in love with the appearance.
(.........can I be in your Will for the '69 Camaro????)
(........or, as my nephews used to say: "..Uncle Scott - -if you die, can I have that???......." -- bless their 'lil pointed heads....)

I agree, CGM might be a good choice for you. After seeing it in person, it looks so much better.
