I can not wait to put a set of rims on our ABM Camaro..It is going to look sick.

Here is a photo of a Jet stream blue C6 with custom rims. The color is VERY close to this car. (photo was enhanced)

1st post, saw a ABM in person today, these photos don't do the car justice in this color. They had a jetstream blue c6 up there next to it, the colors aren't that close. But yeah, it's a toss up between this color, CGM, or summit white.

That last one of the abm was awesome. Great color. Silver stripes look great too.

I think that was NY auto show. Or one of the earlier shows.

Also think they put Alum wheels on it and have shown it at other shows but same CTF car.

Rims are nice, but doesn't 'pop' out at you..how about blue center w/ chrome lip?


Also saw 1rst 'live' one @ Disneyworld, ABM w/ Heritage rims..sweet.

Please explain. I have not seen ABM in person yet looks good flip flopping in photos. Is it lighter/darker than JSB? Is it as striking or boring compared to JSB. We love the JSB but like to get peoples opinion that have seen the two.

The Jetstream blue is a tintcoat color, so it has a lot more depth to it. Way back before the no blue ss fiasco, some people (including me) were pushing for jsb as a choice for the camaro. I have only seen a colorado with aqua blue metallic, it is a darker color than jetstream blue, and it does have some green to it. It is a sharp color and it does look different depending on lighting. In the end, I would still take the jetstream blue, but abm is a great looking color too. When I order my car it is between abm and victory red-most likely abm.

ABM is darker than JSB... the green that is mixed in with it makes it that way... it actually looks pretty good on the Camaro... not so good on the HHR and Colorado

I'd still rather have IBM, RJT or IOM rather than ABM, though

Not sure that's quite true. There's a LOT of green in JSB, too. Instead, I think the base blue is quite a bit darker.

You know, after seeing some of these pics... i think i'm sold on the Polished Aluminum with the silver stripes. I like the way they pop just a bit more then the midnight silver.
Guess i have to update my sig again... lol
