Jetstream blue vs. aqua blue

I saw a corvette today in Jetstream blue metallic tintcoat, this color is awesome. I wanted an aqua blue camaro (still waiting for a real picture) but after seeing this color I think it is a better choice for the car. Just wanted to see what everybody thinks...would love to see this color option. Not sure how to post a pic or where to find one but you can see the jetstream blue by going to the chevrolet website and looking at the corvette.

Here is a picture of the jetstream blue.

I have not seen Aqua Blue in person, but I have preference for Jetstream Blue, then again my opinion may be a bit biased

Jetstream Blue is an awesome color but I believe Aqua Blue will look good as well.

You know it ! Unfortunately, Ed Morse in FL screwed me so hard, I ended up giving it back. Yes, I cried. Yes, I will be getting another. I need to sell my trades and get an outside loan, so the dealer can't ream me again. And yes, I am so jealous, and happy you have a JSB Z06. Sweetness!

P.S. I want a 2010 Camaro next to the Vette in the garage.

I would have preferred Jetstream Blue, but Aqua Blue is good enough to keep me happy. I'm leaning mostly towards that for now.

Up until this morning, Aqua Blue was what I had settled on. I stopped by Davis Chevrolet in Houston on the way to work and took a good look at a 2009 HHR in this color. The HHR was half in the shade and half in the sun so it was actually a good way to view the color.

For me, I think it has too much teal/green in it. When I was in high school I really really wanted a 1992 Camaro Z28 in Dark Teal Metallic. The Aqua Blue section of the HHR that was in the sun was very reminiscent of that Dark Teal Metallic.



When I was 18, that was the color for me. 15 years later, I'm thinking that Red Jewel is more to my style that Aqua Blue. Damn I hate growing up. My wife called Red Jewel "an old man color" and said it should be on a Buick or Caddy. :(

Aqua Blue

I have to agree with everyone on here. Jetstream is an awesome color that should be on the Camaro. Id gladly pay extra for it. The color exists so why can't we have it.

There is a Chevy Colorado at my local dealership in Aqua Blue, and no matter what anybody tells you, it is not anywhere close to Jetstream. In the light it looks like a dark teal, in the dark it flops between indigo and purple. I have been back to that truck at least 10 times trying to convince myself of that color, and Ijust can't do it. We need Jetstream Blue!!!

A good bit of information however. A few years ago my dad was ordering a new truck, he really liked a color that was on the Impala, but was not offered on his Sierra. The dealer checked into it, and GM was willing to make the Sierra in that color as a special order but would not do it until they had received either 10 or 50 requests for the color. I'm in, how about you guys. There has to be more than 50 people that want Jetstream Blue!!!

Jetstream Blue or Hugger Orange, I could go either way. I just want one of those 2 colors. Not Aqua Puke Metallic.

So, for most people, it seems like the jetstream blue is a lot more popular choice. I think that is some good market research there...None of the other colors really jump out at me like this one does.

I totally agree with everyone as well...Aqua blue is just eww to me. I'd LOVE to see jetstream blue on the new camaros as well...Hugger Orange doesn't sound bad either...haha

I know this may not work AT ALL, but hell its worth a shot...we should add a poll to this thread so IF...and HOPEFULLY GM were to see this post we'd have our 50 supporting customers.

The poll should just be plain and simple and straight to the point

"Should GM offer jetstream blue, would you be a definite buyer/supporter of it?"

YES
NO (and i'm only picking this because im cumb)

haha j/k on that part but seriously, let's give it a shot

I have no doubt GM have a couple of show cars getting ready to be painted the colors not yet seen in public (2 blues and the grey).

Do it, Im in on the voting. I know Scott S.(F-Bod Father) regularly checks Camaroz28.com, I am new to this site so I am not sure if he is active here. If we make enough noise then GM has to listen. They want the Camaro to be a success and we are telling them what they need to do to be successful. Come on Camarofaithful, LETS MAKE SOME TEAM CAMARO NOISE, and get Jetstream Blue on our Camaros!!!

Jetstream Blue with white stripes...Im in, #3...47 more to go if the GM policy is still in effect!!!

It may be worth noting that JSB on the Corvette is one of the colors for which there is a 750.00 charge. It has something to do with needing to apply a tinted clearcoat, at least that's what I was told at the National Corvette Museum, when touring the Corvette plant. Apparently not all colors require this extra step, but JSB is one of them. Not sure if Aqua Blue requires this or not, and whether or not that has anything to do with Chevrolet's decision.

If it gets me that color, I have no problem paying extra for it. Thats what I don't understand, if it exists, at least offer it as an option. Im sure many people would pay extra to get their idea of a perfect new Camaro, rather than settling for a color they really dont care for. Even though the SS will be a performance bargain, a price in the mid 30's is still alot of money and we should not settle for anything other than exactly what we want!

Fbodfather said keep the faith, they are still working on things. I really believe GM is listening to all of us. I expect we will see some surprises that we don't know about yet, in colors and options. The more people say what they want, the better chance it will happen. Maybe not in first allocation, but maybe later. Remember they are listening and want happy buyers. Don't give up on what you want.
