Black or IBM?!?!?!

I searched to see if this came up and im sure I just didnt dig enough, but I am stuck...

My 01' SS was stolen last november so I cancelled my black oct 16th order of my 2SS...

Well now I am STUCK!!!! I flip flop between the black and IBM at least 3 times a day...they both look amazing to me. Suggestions? Help decidiing? Thanks everyone...

Joey

Were you ever on the fence about these 2 colors like I am?

Also, I know its my car and I should love it, (which I will) but there are like 5 black ss's around where i am, and blue is my favorite color and I dont see that many...see there are so many things that make me teeter on these colors

IBM for sure. Like some others have said, plenty of versatility with how this color looks between daytime and night time.

Black hides the lines of this car. When ever I see one out in the wild, it takes me a few seconds to determine it's even a Camaro. We were at a cruise in parked beside Black SS. Our IOM got a lot more attention and even some people said they preferred our color over the black one. If we buy a second one, we will be getting an ABM with black or CG stripes.

(sorry to all the black Camaro owners out there - this is just my opinion)

IBM's even better in person. Pictures don't do this color justice. I can't underscore enough the above comments - it looks metallic almost royal blue in full sunlight and almost black in the shade. Discreipt, but the lines still stand out. Not as much as IOM and RY but certainly more than CGM and Black. Try to see one in person if you haven't already!!

I used to have a 2000 SS, Navy Blue Metallic. I was leaning on IBM for a long time until my wife commented that it as close to the same color and asked why I would want the same thing again. Then for black, I used to have a black cobra convertable, hated trying to keep it clean- and yes I agree, hides some of the lines.

So, I went CGM.

I think I'm going to go IBM...the past 2 cars I've owned have been black and I've never owned a blue one.


AND, I just saw one in a parking lot and LOVED what it looked like!
