Why are all the ABM's on the East Coast and Mid-West?

I've seen an S-load o ABM's in Florida, and the North East but barely any in Cally. What's up with that. Saw one dudes in Escondito that gave me a major.... ya know.

I'll be working for the next few months to find my ABM SS RS M6 No Sunroof. I must have it and am happy to travel for it. Gonna need ya'lls help to find it though. If one of you lucky SOB East Coasters fall on hard times and wanna make a deal... I have a 95 Vette I can trade ya to ease the payment pain in exchange for a great deal on your ABM.

Keep a hero posted. Thanks

I know you can go to any dealer and they can put a call out for a particular combination you want. Good luck with your search! I love my ABM!

I think in whole State of Utah there is probably five ABM's that I know of personally. None for sale however.

Yes I love mine as well..

That's funny you say that OP because I've been wondering the same thing. I've seen every colored camaro in person many many times except for ABM. I'm dying to see this color in person.

I honestly can't understand it. Its easily the most interesting color in the fleet. Green is exciting too but not for me. I just don't understand how sales could have been slow on that blue. Its so nice. The rest of the colors are fine... a little USUAL... but fine. I feel like the the silver one looks unfinished.... this is a fun car... needs a fun color. Somebody... help me find my ABM.

my thoughts are that when the car came out, most people ordered IOM or Black. because of that, and the fact that most dealerships sold their cars very shortly after getting them, you couldn't see all the colors in person. most dealerships ordered "safe" colors and sold them right away. also, the ABM looked absolutely terrible on GM's website! not even close to the actual color!! i wanted to order it because i wanted blue and IBM was too dark for me...then i saw it on GM's site and thought it was ugly and started trying to decide on another color. then, when i went to order, i saw an ABM in person....and i was SOLD!!

Question for tripleB. When did you get your car? I see that yours has the chev flags under the camaro emblem. I have an ABM as well, picked it last August but mine has the chicklets instead. I like the flags much better.

I was at the Treasure Island meet with my ABM back in March and there were 3 other ones there as well. That was the only time I have seen any other ABM Camaros. I'm sure a dealer can find one.

i got it delivered this past january. i put those flags on by myself though. however, it did not have the gm chicklets as mine was built after they made the decision to take those off all gm cars.
