Petition to Add Green to the Colors List.

OK, I understand there are a lot of color choices as is, but I'm disappointed green isn't offered. I'm starting this poll to gauge desire for the color green. If there is enough of us, maybe they'll take away an unpopular color and add green for the next model year. It can't hurt right?

Heres the issue. Green of any variation is dated. Think back to the 90s every car maker had green, hunter teal kelly british racing and so forth. The 2000s had silver, Now who is to say that they wont do it later.

Personally I'm not a fan of green, but I can definately understand others wanting it and I'm pretty surprised there isn't any shade of green being offered.

If I can't get green as a main color, I will have green stripes added at the shop.

Do you mean something in this shade?:


I think the new Camaro would look very good in that shade of green.

Yup. About that. Any medium/medium dark green. Rallye green is what I was really thinking of. Hunter green or British Racing Green works too.

any type of pearlized or metallic.

I already have my color combos picked out. Now...reverse combo or not....hmmmm...

Sorry. No offense, but I don't think the green would go well with this car.

You should start a real online petition, I'm sure there would be a lot of signatures, even if they personally don't want green. Then send it to Gm when you get a few thousand.
Maybe some camaro forums would help you and put the petition as a story on the main page.

I support Green as an option for those who would be interested, but it isn't a color that I would get.

Except for the fact that they are completely useless, in the average form. I am also a fan of green, and am slightly disappointed that won't be a color option (at least right away it won't, but that means nothing about the following model years...paint is the easiest thing to change to make a new model year different!).

I don't like green at all. I would never get a green car. I understand that some people like green, so no offense to anyone that likes it, but I hope I never make a green 5th Gen.

Ever since they announced the 5th gen. Camaro I've said I wanted green, specifically Rallye Green that I had on my '69 Z/28. I tried to post a good '69Rallye Green pic with this reply, but the system could not allocate enough memory for a mere 490kb pic, so I guess we're out of memory on the forums. My avatar pic is an approximation done on a fifth gen.

If their were to be any shades of green for the Camaro,it would be a "apple" green"or a "mint green".I personally never cared for dark green of any kind,it makes a car less appealing:(

They all go in and out of favor over time don't they. Seems purple shades are popular this week. I would definitely consider a medium green, silver stripes.

Yes to the first one. Not mint. I always liked the lighter blue on the Saabs and that "apple-y" green on the Saab.

Too dark IMHO, especially with the black stripes. A slightly lighter shade that allowed more contrast should look nice though.
