Best Color/Combo?

I'm going to look at the new 2SS/RS tomorrow, it's black with a silver stripe package I believe. I already have a car thats two years old, but I have to see if going back to Camaro is where I want to go.

What color combo is the best to you? I personally like that deep blue color, without the stripe. Was it hard to find the right color? Not interested in ordering as 50 Camaros or more are within 100 miles or so..

Will they let me test drive it?

everyone has their own taste, so no one can tell you which is the best. Go look at them all in person and decide for yourself. You also have to consider what packages you can find in the colors you like if you don't want to order it. Good luck looking i think almost every color looks amazing on the Camaro.

I'm also considering Corvette, but a 2LT is the highest option price I could afford, so the Camaro looks like more bang for the buck.

Maybe silver...but black looks darn good.

If you read the thread he said a 2SS/RS Camaro or 2LT Corvette not a 2LT Camaro.

I love my color choice. I got Silver Ice Metallic with the Inferno Orange interior!
Closest color combo to the original concept car. Not to mention silver shows off the shape of the car the best of all colors. Darker colors tend to hide the form, while the more vibrant colors tend to flatten things out visually. But hey..... im a little biased!

Either way you cant go wrong, the 2010 Camaro is an awesome car, no matter what color!!

I do like silver a lot. I really need to test drive one of these...get a feel for the extra HP over my LS1 Camaro. The vette was very impressive when I drove it, but the cramped space was annoying. Have to see how the new Camaro is.

Which do you think gets more attention? Camaro or C6 vette? I'm going for the LEAST attention possible.

You can't buy a Camaro and not get attention. Haha.

But I would say the CGM or IBM are very blendish (making up my own words, here) colors. A stripe combination of those two I'm sure would be cool, too.

I'm a little confused...In your original post you said you were going to look at the 2SS/RS. Then in your next post, you said your were also considering a Corvette, but that the 2LT is highest option price you could afford. Which one exactly are you talking about. As for your color question.....Some would say their color choice was easy, some (like me) agonized over it for months, going back and forth between three colors, along with all the combinations for each color. So as "Skillz512" said, it really would be up to you and you alone to decide that. As for your desire to get the one with the least attention.... I would have to almost say currently, the Camaro is the attention grabber, because it is still a relatively new sight to see the 5th Gen Camaro rolling down the road. However, eventually, once the general public gets used to seeing it, that will fade a little.

Ultimately, it is your decision, test drive both. Pay attention to the interiors and then go with your heart... Either way, I would have to say that you need to be absolutely certain with the choice you make. Regret is a bitch, and you don't want to be rolling down the road in one and wishing you got the other!! Just my .02

Imperial Blue or Cyber Gray..

No stripes on the cyber gray. Silver stripes on the imperial blue.

I love the look of the stripes I am just nervous if I choose one with the stripes how well they will hold up after a few years.

They should hold up for a good long time if they are maintained. If you will be as anal with this car as most of us on this forum are, you will be just fine. Now of course, over time the vinyl will fade. You then have the option to replace them.

The other route, which is highly recommended by several members on this forum, is to have them painted on. That option will be highly dependent on your budget. But, I do have to say that I personally love the look of the painted stripes. But go with your heart
