Shunt is an inside joke in the Camaro5 community. There was a picture of the interior of one of the IVER Camaros (prototype) and there was a sign on the dashboard that read "Shunt in trunk" or somethnig to that effect (someone feel free to find the picture). Then other pictures showed up with a string/rope coming out of the trunk and the stories and jokes began to fly. As for IOM...Inferno Orange Metallic..just like SOM stands for Sunset Orange Metallic...a color that's found on a handful of 4th Gen Camaros

People "tag" usually when they also want to know about the topic.

I knew what it was just was adding to the mystique (being silly). It's like Star Wars Galaxies "the shrub". They told people to log in and it was Tatooine desert with nothing but a single shrub. So the shrub took on it's own lore.
