Please speak to the ABM issue. Please? How much time do we have to order one in that wonderful color?
Thank you!

Was at a car show Saturday night and had a GM guy there and he told me they were going to discontinue IBM, can you say Collectible.

i think it's one of the best colors on the 5th gen. Only reason i wouldn't get it is because i had it on my 1968. i do wish they had a very light blue.

Sounds pretty obvious as to which color is getting discontinued, makes me that much happier that I'm ordering ABM.

Well....there you have it. Most people should be able to read between the lines.

I'm sure nothing is official until it's official but the source has spoken!

Congrats to those that have or have ordered an ABM. Especially if you plan on keeping the car for a long time.


I initially thought that ABM w/White Stripes was the color for me but after seeing it in person I realized it's not the right color for me. It's a great color....I'm not knocking it at all.....just not the right one for me. That's to bad since it's possible that it could become an extinct color but I'm going to get what makes me happy now...not what might become in the future.

I wish a medium blue like what came on the Corvettes a few years back was available. Hmmm....who knows maybe in a few years they will. Guess I'll have to trade in and get all the upgrades at the time if that happens. I can't wait around....I would love to have the car now.

BTW: I think any of the available colors look good on this car. When I was at the State Fair this weekend I think I changed my color 3 or 4 times.....VR, no IOM, no SIM, no CGM, no IBM....DAMN....I just can't make up my mind. VR is what's still on order though.

YES please cancel ABM!!!

I know exactly why it wasn't preordered at all. Because of this picture which makes the color look awful.

I am one who has an ABM and I have to tell you that I definitely made the right choice. This is one stand out color! Sure ... every new Camaro on the road gets stares but I think this color makes mine stand out even more. Granted ... I never would had ordered the color if I did not already have a '68 Grotto Blue Camaro RS (also a 1 year GM color). I almost called the dealer twice to change my color choice but so glad I did not. I never saw it in person until my car arrived and when I did see it ... I was ecstatic with my choice! I have been tracking production and realize that ABM is so far the least ordered color. I am torn about how I feel if its discontinued. Since my '68 is a 1 year color, I guess it makes sense that my '10 should be as well. But I think GM should think twice ... Its the most striking color available!! I have mine so overall I guess ... no worries!!

Since I couldnt see the colors when I preordered I went with red to be safe. However after seeing ABM in person, if I could have done it over I would have gotten that color. It's really amazing.

Any idea how long before ABM gets replaced by snot green?

My plan was to wait till the first of Dec to order mine in ABM. I guess if I have to I'll order it sooner then that.

From what I know of the colour, its going to be as surprising in person as aqua blue metallic, which is good. Anyway, from what FbodFather is saying it might be a good idea to order sooner.

Couldn't have said it better. ABM is the Stand Out color for this car. GM should definitley rethink cancelling it if they are indeed considering this. I never saw it in person either but, when mine arrived I realized I had made the right choice. Keep ABM alive!!
