I truly do not understand. Everywhere I go I get a complement on the ABM color. In fact, someone stopped me the other day and said they hated they new Camaro but the ABM made it look good!
My opinion is that GM never really gave ABM a chance. By the time the Camaro's really hit the streets, GM had already pulled the plug. ABM was just marginally the least ordered color, within half percent of IBM, and within 1 to 2 percent of RJT and a few others. The bulk of initial orders went with black, silver, VR, and IOM, I believe. Clearly the initial wave of buyers are hardcore Camaro enthusiasts who think a Camaro can't be blue, with some exceptions among that group, represented well here.

The second wave of buyers (non hardcore) that GM must now count on to sustain the Gen 5 Camaro's success, clearly love this color, based on all the comments you lucky ABMer's are getting. (I had a 78' in a very ABM-like blue, so I know first-hand how stunning this color is...)

GM wasn't thinking long-term, as far as I'm concerned....They pulled ABM to make room for limited-run of Synergy Green. While some may like SG, I don't see it having near the broad appeal that ABM would continue to have, given the chance it deserved........:(

Just thought it would be good to post this in the ABM thread, since all, or most all, of you are ABM owners.

We all want a diecast ABM Camaro, right?
Vote here for ABM!

I am in the process of repainting a black 1:18 Jada 2010 SS in factory ABM. So far, I have stripped the car of paint and am now filling in the mail slot in the front bumper with Bondo.
I will post a thread when done.

Here is a picture of the car without paint:

Mine!

Check sent today, in my driveway in Texas next week! The only color for me. Wondering if I may have bought the last ABM 2LT RS auto sunroof available.
