Is It Just Me, Or Is There A Lotta Orange Camaros?

Don't get me wrong, as I've stated before, there's no bad color choice. I'm just a little surprised that orange is so prevalent. Is it just my area? Last time I looked at the "What Color Did You Buy?" poll, orange was second, beating out even red and white. Is orange a lot more popular car color choice than I gave it credit for, or did they make a big batch of orange cars first, or what?

Actually, I was thinking just the opposite. When I get together with my local 5th geners for shows, I'm the only IOM in a sea of blues, blacks and greys. The only other orange I've seen was at my dealership the other day when I went in for something unrelated to my car. Just curious, are you in texas? I remember back when they were unveiling the car, they sent about a million IOM camaros to that state. They all had to go somewhere after the unveiling.

personally I chose mine to go with the IOM interior...and black is too much hassle to keep clean. Im the only one in my town so far but we also have like 75-80k people.

Ha, maybe that's it - I'm in OK, but I'm 30 minutes from TX.

And..blues? Haven't seen a blue yet - either blue!

No oranges in my area, except one sitting at a lot. WAY too many black ones around here.

CamaroFemme - Around here it's been the same...I've seen a lot of orange Camaros. Don't get me wrong - they're beautiful but there's just a lot around here.

I went with black because that fits my personality a little better and there's hardly any black ones here (my dad really wanted me to get orange...but hey, my money = my car )

Indeed.

Horror movies, Nine Inch Nails, and a black Camaro.

IOM was the forth or fifth color in production back in June. Not sure now. If you are in texas, you might see more due to the mass parades through that state. I know of five around me, but I do not see them to often.

Not that many on the road around here yet but most are black. I've seen one red, one silver, one RJT on the road. Not a single orange, ABM or yellow. Mine's the only IBM I've seen.

I see more Red, Silver and Black 2010 Camaro's around here but I have seen two other IOM's at a resturant I go to.

I love my IOM, I think it's a popular color.

every single camaro that has been sold at the dealer in my little town was bought by someone from out of town, when I drive into town Suday afternoon, there will be only 2 in my town of roughly 19000 people. both are IOM, mine with white stripes, the other has black stripes.
