Has anyone ever thought about painting their SS Synergy Green?

Just a thought cause i finally saw Synergy Green in person at the Auto Show in New Orleans and thought it was beautiful just wish it would come in an SS

I looked at one at a local dealership Saturday, not my cup of tea. But the white on orange one was right on. Tolded my wife to buy it, she has been wanting one for a while.We picked up a 69 Camaro a couple of months ago to fix up. It would look great sitting beside it in my new garage.

I'd wait to see if the Synergy Green gets added to the 2011 color line up or become available on the SS before making the decision to paint an SS.

I have in the past with no issues selling a car. There is always someone out there who will buy it regardless of the color.

Oh yes it will. If you have a car that is not original and the informed buyer knows it, the money that car will command is less. Take that to the bank.

That would cost a lot, I'd wait to see if it is offered down the road.

Not everyone cares about the paperwork or originality of a car. Not everyone is a car collector and entusiast. Apparently you know nothing of the Custom Car market. Take that to the bank.

The thing is you are not talking about a custom car. you are talking about repainting a new Camaro a different FACTORY color from original.. Big difference there...

You would lose less money if you just sold your and buy a green one from the factory. Never do a color change if you care at all about the value. Already said here many times...

A custom car is a passenger vehicle that has been modified in either of the following two ways. First, a custom car may be altered to improve its performance, often by altering or replacing the engine and transmission. Second, a custom car may be a personal "styling" statement by the re-styler/re-builder, making the car look "unique" and unlike any car that might have been factory finished.

Changing the color of the paint that was not offered on that car from the factory would be considered custom.

My guess then is that the guy on here that painted his car the same color as the Bumblebee transformers car lost a ton of value on his car too. Judging by your statement that car plummeted in value.

This car is pretty worthless then. Who knows if he smashed it up, the car was in pieces.

(end of sarcasm)

Looks like pages worth of people that love what hes has done. My guess is he could sell it for alot more than what he paid for the car. This would be an appreciation of value, not a depreciation as many of you think. Not all paint jobs ruin a cars value, especially if its done right.

The green is ok. I sure wouldn't pop 10k to have it done to my car though.

Apparently you missed the definition of a custom car, so i posted it again. Repainting a car a color not offered in that model from the factory is custom.
