I was finally on top of the world!!

Then the email showed up:(

the color I wanted Imperial Blue Metallic is NO LONGER AVAILABLE along with RJT and Cyber Gray it might have something to do with earthquake in japan. (BTW RJT was 2nd choice).

So now i have to choose another color and none of the ones are doing it for me I feel like I was just kicked in the gut! I can actually say today SUCKED!

So now i have to make a decision or cancel my order by tomorrow this stinks! something is telling me not to get this car. The above mentioned sales person said there is a possibility the IBM might be back for the 12's but he did not know for sure.

I cant believe I'm getting stuck on one color but it was exactly what I wanted.
Damn :( Sorry to hear that this has affected you Scott.

IBM is a pretty sharp color, and you probably know how I feel about CGM as well

That being said, you know you have several options:

1. Bite the bullet and wait a little longer (This would be impossible for me to do btw) You have been waiting a while already, and trust me, I feel your pain. I waited almost a year to order my car due to financial reasons. The 2012 colors are looking impressive (the metallic black, I forget it's name is amazing imho)

2. Do some legwork and try to find an IBM that is already built waiting for an owner. Probably not an easy task since Verts are kind of rare as it is.

3. Consider a different color. Now, this is a tough one. As nobody can really give you any advice here since it's such a personal choice. Anyway, here's my personal experience.

I change my mind often, but I was pretty adamant on either a Black or CGM camaro. Black just seemed like too much of a chore upkeep wise as I have no garage and my SS is my summertime DD. So I bought the CGM. I have, since seen Spikes IBM, which I thought was an amazing color up close. I have also seen an IOM 1SS with white rally stripes (East Syracuse Chevrolet has it in their showroom and DAMN it is impressive.) EastSyrChev also has a White SS coupe with orange stripes another one of my favorite color combos, and as I understand it, isn't that the color combination of your current camaro?

Long story short, I basically love these cars. Do I have buyers remorse for getting CGM? Not at all, it's an amazing color. However I would have been equally pleased with IOM, IBM, or Summit White with Orange stripes.

Give these cars a look, if you want maybe we can meet up and go look at them sometime next week if you have time. I didn't see any verts on the lot but seeing the cars in person definitely makes it easier to fall in love with a different color.

Hope you can get something worked out man.

Congrats Scott! Hopefully it will be here for UpstateC5's first birthday party at Sylvan Beach in July. Jason at JT's Custom is waiting for you with his airbrush. That is if my car doesn't wear him down. It's been there since last Saturday getting GFX. Hope to get it back tomorrow. Probably have to rob a gas station to pay him. Too bad about the colors. There is an ingredient in those colors called Xirallic that is produced by a Merck plant in Japan and was damaged in the quake. They expect to be back up in June.

They have a VR with white stripes vert at my dealer, not one of your choices I know, but there are some still on the lots. Don't settle, I know if I did I would be kicking myself a week after the newness wore off.

Ths dealer (CS) I was talking with says the color may come back or there may be something new or it might be gone for good. we will just have to wait and see.

thanks again for all comments and PM's

I hope you guys will be able to keep the guy with the "OLD" GEN4 in the group.

Scott

oshawa tee shirt info

Banshee
Institutionally Insane

Unofficial BBOMG 2011 shirts will be printed this upcoming week. Please PLEASE get with Angel or I if you want a shirt. There will be a preorder with a set price with an additional 100 or so shirts to be sold in Oshawa with all proceeds going to what we do. Giving to charity.

There will be S-XXXL white 100% cotton high quality T's and a white and possibly a heather/grey womens tank top.

Still working out a preorder price. It should be in the $20-25 realm. The slight increase is due to the higher quality material and a transfer for the back that has to be outsourced.
