The White Camaro - thoughts? Pics?

I'm putting together my thoughts for a 2SS/RS order.

My prior (LS1) Camaro is white. I like white, and a side benefit is the car looks pretty clean given its advanced age.

Am thinking plain with no stripe, with just the black from the front and the wheels as contrast. Red interior.

Does anyone have any pics of a similar combo? Any thoughts on the white as a purchase choice?

I love my white one, BUT....I had to go with the black stripes. The beige interior is what sold me on the color though...Just the way it goes with the black accents in the cabin. To each his own.

It really doesn't matter what ya choose though. Its a camaro and a perma-grin always follows!

Enjoy!

Current car is white -car looks awesome and as you say it stays looking good for years especially in hot climate

Black stripes may get a lot of heat in Austin

I saw white car locally with orange stripes and it looked good - but I do think that plain white outside and IOM interior will look good too

Main thing is that there are no real bad options here so go with what makes you feel good.

I ended up going IOM since it simply makes me smile every time I see it and it is like having a car with 4 colors : Red at dusk, Orange in daylight, pumpkin in overcast conditions - and OMG it burns / on fire in bright sunlight

You say "pumpkin" but I thought of "tomato soup" =(

I originally wanted IOM but being reminded of tomato soup in overcast scared me away!

white has an advantage over the rest.

One of the biggest things about white over any other color I have seen is you can change the look of the car by changing the stripe color. I have left mine without stripes mainly because I enjoy the nice clean look of it. But when you install black stripes the car takes on an aggressive appearance. Red to me was more of a classey look and orange was old school they all look good. From the other colored cars I have seen they each have that one color that sets them off.

I think white is the best looking color on a 5th Gen. Really brings out the body lines.

Above all, white is THE best choice for those people who aren't inclined to obsessively polish and detail their cars.

Personally, I think plain white looks like a girl's car unless you add some stripes, then it looks pretty cool, manly cool. Flame away.

I ordered a white 2SS/RS with auto and sunroof that will be arriving in Dallas today or tomorrow.

It's available if someone wants it; I'm re-ordering.

(I ordered grey interior and it got built with black.)

well Bluch beat me to it, as THAT would be the ultimate combo, bar none. If they had come out with white in the beginning, with Orange stripes, and the IO interior as an option, I would be driving one.

Too bad the one that you ordered wasn't a stick as I would have had my dealer ship it here.

I just reordered mine yesterday with black interior. I had ordered a white one white with gray interior and saw the gray at a dealer on Sunday and really do not like the two-tone.

Waiting on mine! Every Car I have ordered and bought was White! It is something about the way it shines and sparkles! On a bright sunny day, when you have taken the time to wash, wax and gloss it.... AWESOME!!!

I am thinking of having silver 69 style stripes painted on that match the silver on the door panels.
