It's a beautiful color. It shifts it's color a lot depending on lighting so I think some people would rather have a bland color that always looks the same. It was my 2nd choice after IOM. If they had a crazy blue interior I would probably have choose it.

Someone's lying to you...

Pros and cons are purely subjective.

Pros:
1. Gorgeous in the sunlight and nearing dusk.
2. Most dynamic color I've seen on a 2010 Camaro.
3. Bluest shades are fantastic.
4. Great dark teal color at times from a distance. (This one's hard to explain. If you need, I can try to take/find a picture.)

Con:
1. About 1% of the time (or less), I see a shade of teal that's not completely to my liking. This is very rare, though.

Well Heres the thing..

ABM
1. Looks amazing
2. Stands out from the crowd (then again camaros do that period)
3. No orders will be taken after november 10th 2009 and production of ABM Camaros will cease November 30th.

Well none of the dealers ive asked know anything about the abm cut. has anyone heard directly from gm about the cut? as i see it, this whole abm seems to be a big camaro5 forum rumor. nothing more. the color still shows up on the dealer's ordering computer and he said that his computer is updated daily and that its just internet rumor cause he ran it by his ordering guy that orders the hundreds of gm cars for the lot daily and he knew nothing of it and he would be first to know if it was.

and you should use

This has been discussed with input from dealers on here for over 2 weeks.

I am sure there is a dealer out there somewhere still telling customers this is a limited production car.

Hello all, I am new to this forum but have been reading it for some time now. My husband and I ordered an ABM 2LT/RS A6 with silver rally stripes and grey interior on 10/5/09. My husband wanted RJT, but since I will be the primary driver, , he let me pick the color. I wanted something more unique (lots of Mustangs in red). I didn't realize how unique it would turn out to be if ABM is really being discontinued. Very cool. My husband is glad now he caved.
By the way, according to my dealer, it was scheduled for production on 10/20. She told me 2 days ago that the event code had changed but I don't know what it is. Does that mean it is being made now? I e-mailed her today for the order number so I could track it myself. If it WAS scheduled for production 10/20 any ideas on when it might actually get to me????? I am so excited I can't stand it!!!! I WANT IT NOW !!!!

That is because it is "order-able" until Nov 10th

Camaro Scotty confirmed it. May seem like a Camaro5 thing but more info will hit here first and prior to dealers.

We have ABM and love the dynamic colors it offers. At car shows people love it. We have yet to have a negitive comment but then again most people do not tell you they hate the color to your face...

I was wanting JSB but after seeming them together I am very impressed with ABM.

We also love that there are only going to be around 2000plus cars made vs. 10,000s of thousands of others.

I guess we will find out nov 10 then. i cant buy till spring anyway so if it is cut, nothing i can do about it. i would need to have another color ready though to give my dealer. crap and the abm looks so hot in the sun. is silver too plain? seems so many people have silver cars though. too bad they dont have a nice metallic red. the rjt is too dark. more maroon. the abm is the perfect metallic color. they better not cut it is all i can say.
