Jetstream Blue Camaro

FYI..The new Camaro Performers magazine is in and has a nice Jetstream Blue by Berger (custom painted of course). I would had gotten this color if it was originally available.

Guys -

the Jetstream Blue Berger Camaro was at the Gathering last year.

Now - I LOVE Jetstream Blue - and if I were ordering a Corvette - that's the color I'd be ordering.

That said:

We put it near an ABM Camaro -- with one Camaro between them..........


.......and guess whot!

You could hardly tell them apart..................


Ask those who were there.

In fact - most didn't realize it was a different color...........

Totally homes. I LOVE the look of that Vette above. Its SICK. But I have an ABM Camaro and it looks just like that. Yes... the color is a little different but ABM is a freaking phenomenal color and I say too bad for those that didn't dig it at first. Made my baby super rare and I love her even that much more because of it. I still can't understand how peeps weren't scooping ABM's up as the most popular color... not the least.

I would agree with that if you were out in the sunlight. However, I bet it they would look alot different in an overcast or low light situation.

In the sun I loved the color....when the clouds rolled through....it was too teal for my liking.

That's why ABM is one of those colors you have to see in person. I just knew it was going to be the color for me based on all the pics and videos I had seen. That was until I went to look at it in person. It just happened to be a partly cloudy day and I got to see it in both sunlight and overcast. As soon as I saw the teal it dropped off my want list.

I had even known about how the color was to be discontinued and that it would eventually be a rare color. Didn't matter...I couldn't get past the teal color.

Thats just my opinion.

ABM has a bit of teal in it. Jetstream blue is more like an electric blue; no teal.

This is exactly my conclusion. When I went to the dealer to start the process of getting my car, I pointed to the ABM they had and said, I want to drive that one. It was afternoon timeframe, and as I came back, talked with the salesguy, went and drove a SW stick car, the evening came on and I started noticing the teal coming out in the ABM. I just couldn't get over it. I know everyone sees color different, but the reason ABM failed in my opinion was the green aspect. Really, the Camaro deserves a lighter blue in addition to IBM in the family. Just leave the green out please.

to the untrained eye or if you're not really paying much attention, i could see that. personally, i love both colors, but i can definitely tell the difference.

as a side note, when i'm in the position to, i'm painting my C5 vette Cyber Gray over Jetstream just because those're the two bestest corvette colors out there right now (that's what the sig's about... even if it's just a chop)

I agree that a lot of people don't like it when the teal comes out in the ABM. Luckily for me, I don't mind it, but the color in the daytime, and especially the sunlight sold me on mine. Man its gorgeous. Took her in to work today and I ended up having to go outside a time or two and I just couldn't help but notice how great it looked...such a sweet blue...not far off from that jetstream blue above.

Now in my garage (with bad lighting) the car looks completely different.

But if I could pick any blue for my Camaro, it would have been the Stryker blue from the Pontiac G8.

Unfortunately I couldn't make it to the gathering, too busy playing with BIG green tractors at that time of year. So I'm just guessing here, but was it sunny out? In the sun my ABM looks VERY similar to the vette in those pics posted above, most people(me included) probably couldn't tell the difference, but what about "low light" situations? I bet they look quite a bit different....

Thats what I wanted to see..... Considering that pic is in low light, there is a definite difference in the two, in that light the ABM would look almost teal, or even indigo, where this car still looks light blue. Here's a pic of mine taken at almost the exact same angle, probably around 1-2 in the afternoon under cloudy skies, notice how much darker the car looks...


I've got to say, I think I'll keep my ABM....I just LOVE how dynamic the paint is, from almost sky blue in bright sunlight to teal under garage lights, and even a deep blue when the evening sun hits it just right, I wouldn't trade it for anything!

Thanks for scanning the magazine cover. The Camaro looks great in Jetstream Blue. I hope GM sees how good the color is on the car and brings back a lighter blue color.
