my comment was aimed at the equality of quality of the photos, not whether or not each color only looked good in a certain setting.

either way, it has been fixed.

This is a much better picture to show how the color really looks.

...and by the way, just to show how pictures can play with the color...

Look at the first two photos in this thread of the '01 and the '69. They don't even appear to be same shade of orange. Infact, the car in the BRIGHTER lighting looks DARKER in the pictures. Same happens to IOM.

The tail close-up shows more orange.
Camera, lighting, it all makes a BIG difference....Like home movies vs. Hollywood...Mine were taken mid-day mostly cloudy.

Ofcourse all of these colors will look different under different lighting. What you pointed out is precisely why I posted those two representations of Hugger orange on older model Camaro's so there would be no doubt that was the color being compared. Metallic color's look nice and IOM is a nice pleasing color. However to me at least it is more red in color than orange. If you ask a child what color they see when looking at the car, I guarantee you they will say red. Show them Hugger orange and they see orange.. I would like to see plain hugger orange or even metallic hugger orange as a color option on the camaro. In today's day and age, metallic hugger orange would be just fine and you get the best of both worlds as a mix between the old and the new..

Sorry, can't change the rules to a metallic hugger. You're pitting the metallic and pearlescent Inferno Orange against plain jane Hugger Orange.

And you also can't use a child's mind to judge anything. In high school I drove a 1978 Monte Carlo that was painted the exact same color as a Minilla Folder, and my 3 year old sister called it the "orange car".

So you're saying a metallic hugger orange would get your vote, like the convertible concept below might be?

A metallic hugger orange is no longer hugger orange. But to play along...

I would not describe an orange like that found on the concept 'vert as bland, boring and flat. In that sense, it would get my vote.

Whether or not I'd buy it over IOM, I can't answer. I'd have to see the two side by side, but I would likely still be drawn to IOM.

xl1200r,

So by showing a picture of IOM that makes it look closer to Hugger orange instead of the actual color that it is makes you happy, be my guest. I have seen the color in person and it does not look at all like the picture of the Hummer you posted above or the solstice. Under heavy artificial lighting indoors, victory red can look orange as I have witnessed yesterday at the Miami auto show. below is victory red under heavy lighting and it looks more orange than your example of IOM on the solstice.. The pictures even fooled me into thinking it was IOM. However at the autoshow, the red RS badge looks orange due to the lighting as well..

Victory Red RS below (not IOM)

The pictures I posted were only to show that if you can make an orange look both really bright orange, and really dark (almost red), then the real color likely exists somewhere in the middle.

Buy what you like, paint your car like a traffic cone, i don't really care. I've made my case and I'm done with this childish thread. I posted against my better judgement in the first place.

Well, thank you for participating in this thread. It is not childish to have a poll in a forum and discuss it. I disagreed with your initial comments about Hugger orange being bland, dull and boring, however this thread at least proves that at least half of the people in this forum actually like the color and would choose it over IOM even if it wasn't metallic.

Inferno Orange was the color I was going to order on my SS before I bought my Corvette instead. I am a big fan of Hugger Orange! It would be nice to see Hugger Orange on the new Camaro instead of IOM. IMO is to red! Just my thought. Jeff

I have to say, that true Hugger Orange doesn't appeal to me much. I respect it for what it is, but I doubt I'd buy it. I like seeing it on classic chevys. IOM is actually a cool color in direct sunlight. It looks a little murky in the shade. But I can deal with it. My Camaro will either be IOM or Aqua Blue. Still trying to fall in love with AB but having a hard time. But maybe it will grow on me. so I guess I vote for Inferno over Hugger.

While I'd like to see the non-metallic colors make a comeback, I just don't think today's buying public would like the lack of depth that they are used to with the metallic paints. I know you can get plenty of depth from not metallic paints but it usually requires a lot more upkeep to keep it looking like that. With metallics, you'll get it just by washing the car.

Just to add some more photos to the mix, here are a couple more of IOM (taken indoors under warehouse lighting conditions). You can't deny that there is orange in this paint.

Oh wow, now we have a VS. thread on this? You guys are getting serious with this orange thing. If you want to try to get the word out, do what the boys did with the blue colors and make a more straightforward thread name.

I'm not going to bother saying anything about it anymore, since now that I saw IOM in person and up close, it's good enough for me to live with. I'd still like to see Hugger Orange offered, ESPECIALLY the pearl one like on the convertible concept, and I am rootin' for you all to get it done. But you won't be hearing from me anymore, especially after Fbodfather chimed in on the orange thread in the General Camaro Discussion thread.
