Question Never thought it would be this hard......

Greetings,

It is getting close to time to order my Camaro. I thought it would be a simple walk in and order type deal, but I have run into a problem. COLOR. GM has done a great job offering a pallet of colors, too good of a job! Help me out and give me your imput. I like all the following color combos. I will be keeping this car for many years, so I will be living with the color for a while. I love the IOM interior, but wonder if it will age well? Anywho, here are the color combos I am considering. Please give me input. (2SS/RS 6 Speed)

1. CGM W/ IOM Interior
2. VR W/ Black Interior
3. IOM W/ IOM Interior
4. IOM W/ Black Interior

HELP!

The above has a running poll of what percentage have ordered what color.

Personally, I'd go w/ Victory Red w/ black interior.

I am sorry but I am not impressed with CGM. It was our first choice until we actually saw it in person on a Camaro. VR is VERY nice on this car but once we saw one in person, the SIM was untouchable! We ordered SIM with black h/h stripes and after getting everything done (stripes and tint) the car looks amazing.



On the IOM exterior, watch out, it may be an "oh my gosh I have an orange car" in a few years like i was when I bought my yellow C5. loved it at first, hated about a year later.

I think the best question to ask may be this. What color do you think of when you "dream" about the car?

Once you know the exterior color, you can then figure out what you want for the interior.

That is one of my concerns. I pass alot of teal and purple cars on the road and wonder if they were excited about the color when they first got it. I have seem the IOM in person and I liked it, But I guess I have to decide if I would keep liking it for years to come.

In a few days, you'll be teaching a class on how to make your Camaro color decision even harder. Lesson 1: Ask the forum members.

Well, I still have a few months before I go in and order and I am sure I will change my mide 100+ times again. I am getting IOM w/ CGM Rally Stripe. I was going to get the Flat Black Rally Stripe, but I think the CGM Rally Stripe package will look better with the Midnight Silver Rims with the RS package, also, I think I am going to get the GFX and not have them painted, again, closely matching the color of the CGM Stripe

So may choices! I started out with the IOM and black interior. Then I just HAD to flip them I will be putting subtle orange stripes on the hood, sides and vents. Someone already posted a picture.

I agree the IOM exterior is hot, but I think trendy also...could wear out. Love the CGM though also with flat black stripes...

I'd have to say of all the colors I've seen in person, IOM really flatters this car the most. That is, IF you're the kind of person that can drive an orange car everyday. I like it, but it's just too much color for me.

Victory Red looks very classy. Really impressive and will likely keep your eye year after year.

I drive an IBM which is perfect for me, very conservative and won't get you a lot of attention.

I would say CGM or VR. From what I've seen... CGM is either love or hate. I have it so evidently I love it. My suggestion. Call up local dealerships and see if they have anything you can look at. All of the colors aren't captured in a photograph or on the Chevy website.

So I saw my first Summit White yesterday. 2SS/RS with polished... WOW, very nice. I am not a polished wheels fan but I think white with either IOM interior and IOM rallys with the polished wheels -OR- White with black interior and black hood/hockey stripes and MS wheels will be amazing looking. I was really impressed with the white whne I saw it. Sorry no pics. It was at the dealer and I must saw a crappy dealer at that. I got out of my crappy 1998 191K mile honda civic that is pretty rough, in my work clothes and started looking at the car. There was a salesman standing right there moving the car and he would not give me time of day. I did ask him if it was sold and he said, in a real smart ass tone, "No, huh, we just took it off the truck" I was like OOOOKKKKAYYYYY... see ya. I didn't even tell him to easy up on the 'tude and don't let the car and clothes fool you, I have one already one. Wasn't worth it. This is the same dealeship I argued with in the past about GM not allowing GMS... really I got GMS from a competitor.

OK sorry off my soap box, I just hate dealers like that.
