I was just wondering the same thing. That blue is one of the best looking colors. Hell, get rid of that rotten yellow instead.

Hey I take exception to that LOL!. To each his own. Having been involved in racing, yellow is money baby. Everybody notices something yellow on the track

Colors make a car worth more? Let's see. The 77-78 Trans Am are going up in price. What color cars are most sought after? Brown? No. Black? Yes! What color do you think sold best in 1977 and 78? The popular colors are the one's that are most sought after in most cases.
Actually, ABM is not about people not wanting it, it is because GM never had a good color sample available on-line. Take it from folks here, a lot of people have said you have to see it in person to serve it justice. The car is an amazing color and the folks who do sell their ABMs down the road are not going to have a hard time selling it, because it is that nice of a color. Sure, someone could have a pink Camaro with purple polka dots which would be very rare, would it re-sell? Well not too many manly men will likely want that one.

There are a number of changes upcoming for the 2010 Camaro production that you need to be aware of:

The first change is there will not be a DOSP cycle this week as there are enough orders in the system to cover the necessary lead time for the plant. The next DOSP cycle will start on Thursday, October 29, 2009, which will also be the first week of allocation from the just completed consensus cycle.

Camaro Constraints Update
For the last few weeks, there has been a constraint in place that has limited the availability of the SS (V8 models 1ES37 and 1ET37) model to approximately 50% of total available Camaro production. The constraint is due to the continued high demand for SS production. The product team has been working hard with a number of suppliers to meet the market demand for the SS model; and, in the next two to three weekly DOSP cycles, the SS model constraint will steadily increase in availability to the point where production should align with current demand.

While the SS model constraint will be minimized, a new constraint on LT models equipped with the RS Package (V6 models 1EF37 and 1EH37 with RPO code WRS) will be instituted for the next Camaro DOSP weekly cycle (the DOSP cycle beginning next Thursday, October 29, 2009). This new constraint will significantly limit the availability (0% - 10%) of the LT models with the RS Package for the next five to six weekly DOSP cycles. However, after these five to six weekly DOSP cycles, the LT models with the RS Package constraint should improve and nearly align with current market demand.

Important Note: Although there is little content difference between RS Packages for a LT (V6) model and a comparable SS (V8) model, the new constraint ONLY impacts LT (V6) models. The RS Package (RPO code: WRS) will continue to be free flow when ordered with SS (V8) model. Camaro LT models without the RS package, and all LS models will also be free flow for production.

Again, the severity of this new RS Package constraint on LT models is only expected to last for production through the end of the calendar year. When production resumes after the planned holiday break in 2010, the availability of the RS Package on LT models is expected to improve significantly.

High Wing Spoiler Cancelled
Due to a number of issues, the dealer installed High Wing Spoiler (LPO code: 5V5) will be cancelled for the 2010 model year. If all goes well, the High Wing Spoiler will be introduced in the 2011 model year.

Orders currently on hand with the High Wing Spoiler will have the LPO code 5V5 removed and made available for submission.

Hurst Short Throw Shifter Availability
The introduction of the factory-installed Hurst Short Throw Shifter has been delayed to late Q1, 2010. Since the option code had not yet been introduced, this delay does not impact orders on hand; however, it does impact those customers who have been waiting to add the "official" Chevy accessory Hurst Short Throw Shifter to their current Camaro. The delay in the factory-installed shifter means the corresponding accessory part will also not be available until next Spring.

Aqua Blue Metallic Build Out
Aqua Blue Metallic (RPO: GBD) will end production for both Camaro and Impala the week of November 30, 2009. The last weekly DOSP cycle to submit an order for Aqua Blue Metallic will be the cycle that begins on Thursday, November 5, 2009, and concludes on Tuesday, November 10, 2009. After Tuesday, November 10, 2009, Aqua Blue Metallic will be on a full constraint, and removed from Order Workbench configurators and the Order Guide by the middle of November.

TRANSFORMERS Special Edition Build Out
As the next Camaro special edition ramps up, production of the current Camaro TRANSFORMERS Special Edition package (RPO: CTH) will end. The last weekly DOSP cycle to submit an order with the TRANSFORMERS Special Edition package will be the cycle that begins on Thursday, January 7, 2010, and ends on Tuesday, January 12, 2010. After Tuesday, January 12, 2010, the TRANSFORMERS Special Edition package will be on a full constraint, and removed from Order Workbench configurators and the Order Guide by the end of January.

Current estimates project about 1500 Camaro TRANSFORMERS Special Edition package will have been produced when production ends at the end of January.

Finally, the last four months, Camaro has outsold Mustang by over 7500 units -- a remarkable feat when you consider the dominance Mustang has enjoyed in the Regular Sport Segment over the last decade.
Is there any way to add to this list?
What is the availablitiy of the Dealer Installed Aux Gauge Package? Part No. 92228166? Following the threads on this site, it was scheduled for availablility in September, is there any update?

I'm thankful my 1LT/RS is ABM.

If I were buying a new Camaro it would have been the ABM. With that being said and the color being phased out, a good alternative would have been the blues you get from the ABM when its in shade...its not too bright yet not too dark...too me its just right!!

Still paitently waiting for a Supercharged version to come along before buying!

My Aqua Blue Metallic

As of September there were only 1500 Aqua Blue Camaro's made, our cars will be rare before 2010 arrives. I love my Aqua Blue color. I get more questions on the color than I do the ride. I think that will eventually GM will have another blue color out there. It is a keeper for real now.

Wow so ABM won't be available AT ALL, on any model right? That's gonna make the ABM and the Transformers cars collector cars down the road methinks...

I can't say that I'll miss the high wing spoiler. They don't have to bring that one back

I'm going to cry. I ordered a 2LT/RS in late September....now it looks like I wont even have a remote chance of getting it this year. To make matters worse I'm also in Canada where it's even harder to get one when things are good....

Can anyone translate the quote below into English for me? I'm wondering if I order an ABM V6 with an RS package from my dealer (with allocations) tomorrow, is my order guaranteed to be filled? Or does it depend how far my order progresses by Nov 10? I don't understand the terminology or the production cycle. Thanks.

Aqua Blue Metallic (RPO: GBD) will end production for both Camaro and Impala the week of November 30, 2009. The last weekly DOSP cycle to submit an order for Aqua Blue Metallic will be the cycle that begins on Thursday, November 5, 2009, and concludes on Tuesday, November 10, 2009. After Tuesday, November 10, 2009, Aqua Blue Metallic will be on a full constraint, and removed from Order Workbench configurators and the Order Guide by the middle of November.

I thought about this yellow color thing long and hard. I really believe that Rally Yellow is nicer looking than sunrise yellow. If Bumblebee had been Rally Yellow and Chevy only offered sunrise yellow.....people would be saying the opposite. Rally Yellow rocks! If I wanted orange, I would have bought an orange car.

And OT but if a dark green was offered I'd really have to do some thinking about my current color choice (RJT).
