I love the IBM. I would also love to hear the official reason why the buyer cannot at least special order a SS Camaro in [U]any[U] of the offered paint colors. Nothing I have read so far makes any real sense why. Do the SS Camaro's go down some sort of special 'SS paint production' line?
If they want something exclusive or special, make the SS available with a couple of extra unique colors only on the SS. Charge a bit extra if you feel you have to...let the buyer decide.

Of course, I still would like a complete checklist of every available option when special ordering a car. No option package's. If someone is a car nut enough to do that, they want the car the exact way they envision it. No paying for options you dont want or need.

But, all in all, I think GM has done a great job. Just needs flexibility.

Im getting silver metallic, but blue was my first choice. I cant wait for chevy to come out with blue in 2100 ish time frame. By then all cars will be 1 cylinders with gas prices around $100.00 a gallon.

Just kidding!

I too was hoping for the darker blue with white stripes. I've always loved that combination and now it would be even sweeter since my son's 2nd gen Z28 is the same color combo. But I am waiting for the vert as we've owned every gen of the Camaro line and my 4th is my first vert and can't live without it. Guess it is a chick thing but I love hearing the purr of the engine as I smoke some mustang . . .

It's rediculous that manufacturers limit color options. Why wouldn't one of the blue's be available on the SS. I'm very disapointed............

WHAT THE SMURF?!?! You mean to smurfing tell me that there's no smurfing blue color? Shut the smurf up!

Actually, I could care less if that light blue color comes out. It's horrible. Now, the dark blue of the 4th gens (NBM) was one of the best ever.

But, what I want is RED RALLEY STRIPES!!! Give me them, GM!!! With white leather with red trim.

Am I reading this poll correctly? If taken literally people wanted blue by a margin of over 2:1 over all other colors combined!

How could GM get it THAT wrong?

Blue isn't my first choice, but I think Imperial blue should be an option. Many people love the NBM of the 4th gens and I think Imperial blue would be just as popular.

The poll options aren't good. I picked to have blue because I do believe it should be an option and I think it would be a popular choice. However, for me personally blue isn't my first choice.

Maybe GM forgot about how good Lemans and Mulsanne blue looked on a Camaro. I think Aqua blue 1SS with black stripes.

Just a thought here.

See this is what I really don't get. What person in there right mind at the marketing department decided not to offer blue. i am sorry but the day that decision was made, someone had there bowl of "smart puff flakes" for breakfast that morning. Blue in one form or another has always been offered for every major sports car in American history. Now i can agree with what Sharl said that the Aqua blue was not quite befitting of the SS, now that I agree with. But the darker the color the more aggressive and serious the vehicle comes across as, and that is one of the many key features that the SS embodies. You have Black, Cyber Gray, Red Jewel tent coat, Red. These are all serious dominating colors. Blue threw out history has always been a symbol for power and royalty. In corporate America you go into work wearing a blue suit usually navy with a white shirt and red tie, " I.E. Power suit. It will tend to catch peoples attention and it presents a persona about the person that says I mean business don't mess with me. This is not one of those times that you offer the car in blue because every other car manufacturer on the face of the planet does it. you do it because it helps people feel better about them self's and it does affect the way a person carries them self and also as any of you know a car is an extension of the owners personality and who they are. Don't you want the people to arrive in these cars with a smile wider than the state of Tennessee on there face? Don't you want them to feel good about getting the color they want for the car they want, instead of getting the car they want and settling for second best in there own opinion? Ultimately the decision is up to you at GM corp., as to weather you decide to answer the cry of all the enthusiast out there saying that WE WANT OUR BLUE CAMARO SS. It is also up to you as to standing by your original decision to leave it alone. Now considering the unprecedented back lash from hell this has created from the faithful to the new comer, well you get the idea.

2:1 odds, get you math right. It is a 3:1 meagin. So 3/4 of 317 votes say offer blue.

I think Chevy is going to save the Blue for a ZL-1 Camaro with 556HP 6.2 Supercharged like the new CTS-V. Kind of like what they did with the ZR-1 Vette. That logo is Blue afterall.

Look at this Blue 4th Gen ZL-1 with stripes and all.

Right! This would be a heck of a way to get people to buy blue, and an even better way for them to market it. The first pics of the ZR-1 Corvette that I saw was blue and they also had charcoal too, both of which look hot. I might opt for a Charcoal SS or just wait it out for the navy/imperial blue.

For GM to hold off offering blue on a car that may never come, that would be crasy. Look at the cry for the color right now. There are people that have said that they will not get the SS with out blue. They are going to the V6 or not at all. If no blue come out prior to the final day to change orders then I will be going with the Cyber Gray and then getting the car painted the blue of my choice, and I dont care if I pay an extera 7-10K. My car is my car, and that is that.
