Have to agree. I was walking to my parked IBM yesterday at the Target parking lot (I park far away!), color in the AZ sun took my breath away.

I havent been able to take a pic yet that comes close to what it looks like in person.

I have seen both in real life, owning and IBM, and seeing many ABMs at car shows and in town. Not trying to bash either one, just to me neither is a true blue. Thinking back to all of the blue cars I have owned over the years (7 I think) these 2 Camaro blues would have to be my least favorite. JMO

I would love for GM to bring out a medium metallic blue for 2012. If not, I'll be getting a white one.

My mother had a 68z that my father painted corvette Targa Blue. It was slightly different than this because he sprayed a different color base coat underneath it. Name:  1972-Chevrolet-Corvette-1.jpg

What really makes alot of these colors pop, is the metallic in them. So to me I'm hoping they can throw a little metallic in the next blue, whenever that is.

Love my ABM, although in dim or cloudy lighting it can appear a bit dull and tealish. I'm not a huge fan of that either, but when you get some decent lighting on her she really shines...and tru blue at that. Just check out my sig pics....thats how she pops in the sun!

Now for me, I really loved the Striker Blue (I think it was called) on the Pontiac G8s. That would have been my color forsure.

It does pop in the sun, no doubt. The first car I test drove was a 2SS ABM. But...then I saw the teal...and that was that. Just didn't do it for me. The IBM does look great, but mine is a daily driver, so I knew it would pick up dirt almost as well as black. So, I went SIM. Someone should start a new blue poll with pics.

I guess I'm weird but I actually liked ABM quite a bit. I like IBM too so really I don't see the problem

Someone that does know how to do polls should, maybe FbodFather can use it for GM. I would have goten ABM if it was available but wasent. But I did love the blue on those G8's.

This. I fell in love with that blue. If they offered that I would do anything I could to afford this car.

Same here, and I am also colorblind but I can still tell that neither IBM or ABM are really a true blue.

Of course putting them on a Camaro makes even a bad color look good!

Great color!
It is metallic, kinda:

WRONG.

White is the presence of ALL COLORS.

Black is the absence of ALL COLORS.

Dude you can rationalize it however you want. The bottom line is it didn't sell.
