Camaro color poll for Texas owners

Hey guys, I've been lurking this forum for a couple months now. I've been ready to buy a new vehicle and the Camaro was definitely high on my list.

I'm excited to say that I've finally registered to the forum because my decision has been made. I'm going in monday to place my order.

BUT, I'm torn between a few colors, well maybe not just a few....haha. I wanted to start this poll out of curiosity and maybe see if the results can even possibly help my decision.

Yep, white is definitely in my top 3 colors right now. Especially as it's pretty rare.

That was my second choice, I when the other way, got IOM exterior w/ white stripes and a IOM interior.

i love my victory red...but ive always been high on black cars...nothing looks better than a perfectly clean black car - only problem is that its hard to keep clean! but if thats not a problem for you, then i think black with orange stripes is one of the better cars ive seen...im also high on white...but its all a personal opinion, everyone has there own color they like best, do what YOU want the most!

Yea.. so many different choices. Honestly, they all look so great.
With the exception of yellow,orange, and blue, I've had a vehicle in some shade of all the other available colors.

I've always liked black on any vehicle as well, especially on this car cuz I think it looks incredibly mean and tough, but I've had tough times keeping up with this color in the past.

My avalanche currently is white/black interior and I love this combo and it's really appealing on this car right now because of it's rarity, yet somewhere inside (for me at least) white doesn't scream "muscle car".

CGM and SIM also look great as well. CGM looks like the car is carved from solid granite and SIM out of solid metal. Always liked these colors as well.

Both blues look incredible and unique on the road.

And of course reds and yellows are your classic, flashy, sporty colors. Those look great as well.

Decisions.....decisions.........

I'm actually kinda surprised that I haven't seen that many SIMs on the road either. Maybe Texans aren't buying silver cars....

That is going to look sweet Dallas Retro. BTW, Nice meeting you yesterday.

Back to the OP.........you can't go wrong with any of the colors but you can go crazy trying to narrow what you really want down to one color.

Good Luck!!! Enjoy the wait also. Come here and hang out it will make the time go by faster and you will have plenty of time to change your color if you decide to. I had IOM and changed to ABM ........hey it could happen that you change your mind several times during your order.........many here will probably admit to it themselves.

Thanks Tim. ABM is one of my three favs. I saw one with white stripes at Friendly Chevrolet... It was beautiful! I believe it belongs to NativeTexan(?).

The Camaro at Twin Peaks with the 427 was wild!

Just noticed we're neighbors; I live in Farmers Branch.

Yes we are pretty close because I live on the south side of Carrollton between Beltline and Keller Springs.

Haha, man this is kinda crazy.... I've owned 8 different cars in my life and I've NEVER had this much of a problem deciding color choice.
I've had and still have some nice cars but there's just something about this car that makes me extra excited for some reason.

So... I went and spoke to my sales guy today at Henna, and I'll be stepping in the office around noon tomorrow to place my order and go grab a bite to eat with him.

I've boiled it down to 3 colors... SIM, CGM, or SW. I'm gonna have a tough time sleeping tonight

I picked Red Jewel with cyber met. rally stripes and smoked rims. Havent seen it yet but I'm sure I'll love it. I figured the rallys are there, but subtle and the rims match. I was going to get Silver with cyber met rally stripes but the same day a guy rolled his into the dealer with the same setup to show it. Also, the dealer got the same color in V6 for test driving.

The day I made the choice to get the car I was looking at an IBM with silver rallys. That was nice but the blue was so dark it may as well have been black.

The paint/stripe/interior/rim color choices will drive you mad!

Went in this morning and placed an order on CGM/ 2SS/RS /IO interior.
I think I'm happy with what I've settled on. In case I change my mind, I still have some time to make some changes.

I'd love to have Black w/IOM stripes and interior... as long as someone else would clean it for me every weekend. Guess I better stick with Summit White?!!

I love the silver, somehow it really brings out the curves and details of the car. But my '98 Camaro is silver, so I had to go with the IOM for something different.
