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.

It was my second choice behind SIM and if I'd known it would be gone this soon I would have ordered it as it reminded me so much of the Marina Blue on my 66 Pontiac.

Of my 40 plus cars silver has been the easiest to maintain over long periods.

The RJT is NOT too dark...it changes color depending on the lighting conditions...

In the sun, it looks like a 'Candy Apple Red' metallic...in the shade, it looks like a 'mean BAD A** burgundy'...

I have people going BESERK over the color, and I get just as many compliments on the COLOR as I do the CAMARO...

It changes color, just like the ABM...BTW, the ABM was my 2nd choice, however, I chose the RJT because it was the closest color to my Firebird...

You can check out the pictures of my RJT in my 'garage photos', or my profile photo album...

Listen Ive seen an ABM ls with heritage rims, and it looked great, black rims look so cool with that color i would imagine the color would only look better with an rs package in 2lt or 2SS

Here is a picture of my ABM 2LT RS along with my '68 Grotto Blue RS. The only reason I ordered ABM was because I wanted it to match the '68 as much as possible. I had never seent the color in person until mine arrived and let me tell you all ... it is absolutely striking!! I get more compliments on the color than I do on the car itself. You all have to see it in person! I guess I am sort of bummed that the color was discontinued but it will make mine even more special. And ... since Grotto Blue was a 1 uear GM color in '68, I guess that makes my decision even more special.

I do believe the 'tintcoat' is what makes it 'brighter', IMHO...

My brother just bought the 2010 Chevy Equinox and got the same color as mine, because he loved the color of mine so much...however, the color is listed as 'Cardinal Red' on the Equinox, and even though our cars look identical side-by-side, he believes mine is a bit 'richer' in color due to the 'tintcoat', which makes it a 'premium, extra $$ color on the Camaro...

If you see the RJT in the bright sun, it looks like a 'Candy Apple Red', as I've stated before...IMHO...

I do love the ABM and IOM as well...these 3 colors change constantly with the lighting conditions.....

It is going away sadly, as well as on the Impala - the same paint line for both cars.

Maybe you can get the new Synergy Green next year!
