HELP HELP
Welcome to Camaro 5! Go Aqua Blue, and you'll be very pleased. We both live in the Land of 10,000 Lakes, so ABM only seems right, right?

I hear you. VR is best on cloudy days, when it still looks vibrant, while most other colors look dull......except ABM....ABM still looks fairly vibrant in clouds, but still has that metallic depth when the sun comes out....Its a great all-around color!

....Those crazy days of being a kid..lol

I'm also in mid-40's. My advice would be to go with what you really want. IMO would also be a very cool color. I have not yet ordered. Will need to first test drive to be sure my bad back can handle the ride. But I REALLY want to get one, if possible....My ultimate hope would be to just drive it May thru Oct, and have a beater for winter months. (I hope to see few on streets before ultimately deciding on color)

Congrats on being priority one! As far as 7 weeks, I'm not sure? There are others here who are more expert at answering that question. If you check the ordering thread, might be someone who can help you there.

Here's link to very nice pic of IMO....on second page of the thread.

I don't think it's the same. I just Googled the Porsche ABM though, and if they had that color on the Camaro, I wouldn't think twice about keeping the ABM.

I went to my dealer to finalize my order that is going in tomorrow, they have a ABM HHR sitting right in the front entry outside. I think if you like blue it is a great choice. Finally the countdown begins for me!!

ABM seems to look alot better on the colorado then the hhr...although it looks a lil like it does on the hhr in that last pic of the colorado

im begining to think this color is diff on every vehicle! some with more blue and some with more green...even tho i seen the hhr in person and i seen it in bright sun light and i saw the bright blue...i still seen a lil being of green where the curves to the car were...but on alot of these camaro pics i seen NO green AT ALL! heres and example of the jeckyl hide thing im talkin bout on the HHR...

JECKYL

HIDE

This is closest to what it really looks like in the sun...


but wuts up with this hhr looking all blue?


and last and DEFF LEAST! whats up with this abm malibu




sry for all the pics and repitition of the same type of post worrying about abm...but it makes me feel better!!!

Well, no matter what you do, you can't make an HHR look good

I think the most green we'll see is like the one in the first pic of your sig. But with the amount of blue we've seen in all of the ABM Camaro pics, I mean come on... it's got to be blue

I don't think any Gen 5 driver would mind..maybe we need a Camaro5 "Wave?"
I'll be sure to stay seated! Thought just occured to me....good thing taser's hadn't been invented back then ......As for the official wave, how about Vulcan wave Spock use to do on Star Trek?

http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=15533 Check out my thread about this color. I mixed it, I know it. No color is shared from any car company PERIOD...except good old regular black. But that is a different story as well, because some car companies mess with black by adding yellow or blue or geeen. Stupid, yes, but these are college educated "art" students not auto paint specialists. Anyway, ABM is a unique color....you must understand that this color has pearl in it and that changes the hue in sunlight, and cars like the Camaro or Colorado pickup look great in this shade because it highlights style lines. The HHR is a round shape, so this color is not as definitive on that car. ABM...a color for those who have discriminating tastes.

Rally, I agree with you 100% about ABM on the Camaro vs the HHR. The Camaro looks great in this color in person. Being a novice, in your opinion what is it about/in pearl that makes it so different?
