Make sure you post some pics of your charcoal rallys when done. I always thought that combo would look good, but have never seen it done.

The plant has been running 1 color over since Summit White came in as the plant can only produce a limited number of colors in volume. The relatively low volume of ABM allowed them to continue it along with SW for awhile. If Synergy Green didn't come in, ABM was still done. Had the discussion personally at Carlisle with Settlemire, Fitzpatrick and Pilcher. I work in Chevy marketing with all three of them on a daily basis. When Synergy Green is done, it will not be replaced with another volume color. We will do other colors, but they will be more special edition in nature. IOW, low volume.
Ahh well that makes since, I understand everything else you have said after reading this bold underlined part. SO the truth is SW did not kill it, low sales did

Thanks!

Well, I've been lingering around on this site for about 6 weeks now, and thought I was going to order a red jewel tintcoat RS V6 but drove by my local dealership yesterday and spotted an aqua blue metallic one and fell in love so today I bought it! Can't wait to get the stripes on next week and the windows tinted. I'm shocked they discontinued this color but am happy I found one of them. I'll post pics sometime next week.

That is what happened to us. We were teetering between IOM and Cyber Grey. We went to look at ABM, since we had not seen one of these, yet. We looked and drove it home.

lucky you!!!!!!! mine is at 3400, still TPW of 12/14. hoping it comes in before the end of the year. while i really wish mine was here and available, i'm hoping to get the very last ABM produced, so i don't mind that it's not built yet. there's still a chance!!

I ordered a 2SS / NO RS !!! / 6Speed manual with gray interior, no stripes on 3 Nov. Chevrolet picked it up at about 10:00 PM on 10 Nov. My dealer didn't even have an allocation but worked it out somehow. According to Spasticsquirrell it is only one of six if this configuration. I am at 3300 and have a TPW of 12/14/09 also. So maybe I will have one of the last ones also !!! By the way I bought it for under MSRP using the GM military discount. I am getting so excited I can hardly wait.

awesome! i got the black interior for mine. got mine with my gm supplier discount, so i'm paying under MSRP also. when i checked spastic squirrel with my options there were only 71. so, being conservative, since it doesn't show orders on that site, i figure i'll have 1 of 85. it also shows only 8 in CA with my specs. so i should have 1 of 15 at most in CA. not quite as good as 1 of 6, but still not bad!

Right now there are only 33 total in ABM listed in the whole state of Kentucky !!! There are no other with my stats even close to here. The closest one is in Arkansas. I can't wait to pick it up !!!

i thought about going with the beige interior, but decided against it. really like the grey, but the floors and sides are grey too. if the grey was like the beige i'd have gone with that. i can't do the grey floors though.

if i went with beige, it shows none in CA for my options with beige. oh well. i'm cool with black!

I like the contrast of the gray carpet, and love the contrast of the gray and black together.

i love that two tone look, but my carpets will get dirty too fast with the grey cause i have a 2 year old and also work in an oil refinery. i wear shoes to work that i take off in my locker room and put my work boots on and then put back on to go home, but my car still ends up dirty.

1 of 6! That's awesome!! Mine is 2LT/RS/ABM/Gray Int/Auto/Sunroof/No Stripes and it is 1 of 42, so far. I wish SpasticSquirrel's site also showed the wheel options.

Go to camaro.spasticsquirrel.com and filter out the options etc. When I first did it I forgot to filter out the R6P orders and there was 77 with my option, filtering out those I ended up with 71.

Yes, would be more complete with wheel options and also which cars have rear park assist and which do not.
