You and I (and any other people who love the aqua blue) are SOL. The majority here are now begging GM to at least offer the darker blue on the SS. We're on our own. And just like you, I think the blue ambient lighting on an aqua blue SS would be a perfect match. It would look custom made.

You are not alone.

I don't know that I would buy Imperial Blue. I prefer lighter as well.

I like IB more than no blue, though. JSB, then Aqua, then maybe settle for IB.

Yeah, I must say, with the exception of a couple of somewhat insensitive folks, this is one of the threads where just about everyone agrees, even those whose tastes are different (i.e. they don't want blue). Thanks for the support everyone!! I may get my Imperial Blue yet, or at least a good alternative!!

I've been frequenting this site for quite some time but haven't joined until I read this thread. I've cast my vote to have GM incorporate a blue SS model. I can understand limit ing the color choices for the top-tier model (maybe, as other automakers do), but not having blue is simply a mistake!

Seriously though, I know a lot of people like the dark blue, but to someone who lives in Arizona and needs a relatively light car to not die of heatstroke when climbing in, aqua blue is a necessity! Sure there's other light colors, but the yellow on the car just isn't the same when it isn't bumblebee's color, the silver makes there be too much silver on the car, between the silver color, silver rims, and silver brake rotors, and then I think red cars are bad luck, so... GM, PLEASE MAKE AQUA BLUE SS's! I REALLY don't want to have to buy a V6! :(

Please, if you like aqua blue, don't just say "I want a blue Camaro", make it known WHICH blue you want!

Oh, and I love that honda commercial.

I live in south Florida and I concur. Dark absorbs the heat too much for here.

ok i have a quarrel with people voting no.......WHY would you do that. IF you really wanted blue why not complain about it now while GM is looking? you must not have wanted it very bad.

i dont want blue, but i voted yes!

I feel bad for the people that have been dreaming about a blue SS since they saw the concept back in 2006.

I feel bad for the people that have had all blue camaros, and want to complete their life with a 2010 blue SS.

I think its awful, and frankly.... stupid not to offer atleast one blue.

I think that our opinions will change this though. i have faith.

Cool No blue on SS

It makes no sense to not offer blue on the SS model but you can get it on every other model. I know that GM will correct their mistake and offer a blue for the SS.

I REALLY would love to see the SS in at least one shade of blue. I LOVE the IBM on the GM cars and my wifes Malibu will probably be in IBM.

first post
my first car was 1970 Camaro, Mulsanne blue, I actually want a jet stream blue 2010 Camaro, not teal or dark blue. and for the GM people reading I drive a 2006 Acura RL, a 2003 Infiniti G35 Coupe (wife) and a 2007 VW EOS - you picked the wrong blue colors.I want a 2SS with jet stream blue.

I have been visiting these forums for some time now, but never registered. When I saw the news on the main page that they are not making a blue SS it made me VERY VERY sad. Blue is my favorite color, and i was planning on buying a blue SS, but now that is shot to sh*t. I registered just to voice my opinion and vote in this poll. I WANT A BLUE SS!

Angry Need Blue!!

I was strongly considering the silver or the Imperial Blue. GM don't take away my options!! I too have been checking this site out for months and found this issue important enough to register. GM needs to know that options are imperative to customer satisfaction. With this slowing down economy and specifically, money problems already present at GM, this is no time to take a chance losing a even a single customer. Hmmm, doesn't the GT500 come in a blue....

I've had an Imperial Blue Metallic with White Stripes on my desktop for months (since colors were announced), that us until Thursday of last week. I was extremely disappointed that blue (ANY blue) was not available on the 2SS. I still don't get why GM decided to limit their top of the line to the colors they published. Their top of the line should have any combination of any color or option available on the line.

.....and don't give me a description of how car manufacturing lines work.

Since the IBM is not available, I had to go with the "Stongly Suggested" color scheme in the ordering workbook. I figured that since I can't get what I truely want on the first run, then at least I'll get a low production number. I know that I will regret the decision every time I pull up to a later model with the color scheme I want. Hell, I'm not even a fan of the IOM Accent package that I ordered.

I hope this thread shows the frustration of the community, and that they change their minds and offer IBM while I still have a chance to change my order.
