it had the nice blue but it also had a green...and from far away all i seen was a non metallic...almost jade looking color...the sun wasnt beaming down hard but it was light out with no sun...and then i went to eat and came back when it was a lil darker but not dark yet and thats when i took the pics...there was a spot light on in the lot tho and i also see it inside the show room...idk i just cant see how all these pics in this thread show soooo much blue when it was like 50/50 greenish blue/bright blue...it wasnt even a lighter, brighter jade looking color like this pic...

it was like that but alot darker...but that was prolly cuz the sun wasnt beaming on it hard....i just really hope it looks better on the camaro...and i hope my order doesnt get pulled b4 i get to go to the car show mid april(if a abm camaro is even gonna be there)...imma stop by the dealership tom. while im working and take some more pics in the sun light with a digital camera...

Look for 09 colorados and canyons in ABM also, that is where I have seen it in bright daylight , night light and a dull day.........awesome color for our Camaros

I didn't see anything on the lot like it... I saw Flash Blue, which was nice except that it had a purple tint to it from certain angles... bleh to that... and there was another one, I don't remember what car, but I think it was just called Bright Blue. That one was a bit too light for me I think... I also saw Imperial Blue, and the little pop it has in the bright light looks really nice, but overall I wash it was just a tad lighter. It's so dark that you don't really get to admire the "blue" as much as I'd like. Jetstream Blue would be ideal... I can't believe they didn't do that color on the Camaro... so I really hope that I like the Aqua Blue!! And if I get it, and then they release Jetstream Blue next year...

oh man! I've never been so wishy-washy my whole life. First I wanted Inferno Orange. Then it was Imperial Blue. Now it's Aqua Blue!

I think IBM looks just a bit too dark for what I plan on dressing it up with. ABM looks like the perfect match.

I better not take a peak at the official Red Jewel thread!

Guys, just remember that the pics here look different on different monitors. I have 5 different computers at home and they are pretty much calibrated differently and have different capabilities. I've seen the ABM on a Camaro and it looks very close to what is showing on the build site. You have much more depth to the color in person. Without many ABM Camaros out there it is tough to imagine, but I saw very little green in the example at Philly(IMO) but some green on a ABM HHR last week. Angles and size of the car may have something to do with it's appearance.

yea im hoping because the HHR is really rounded off on almost all its edges that it showed alot of green...i mean even with the green its an awesome color...i mean this color and iom are the only colors that have that 2tone effect of 2 light colors...and red and orange are just not my colors...just as a whole from a distance the HHR had a nasty green look to it...but up close it was alot nicer cuz u seen the color bend in the light showing off both colors...

we'll see tom when i get better quality pics in better light...and when i go to the car show im taking mad pics(buts thats not for a few weeks)

So upon closely comparing these 2 pics, my concern now is more about the camera/angle they used. This is obviously the same Camaro in the same location in both pics... but look at the difference in color of the pavement. It's as if the pics have an entirely different hue to them. What a way to add to this confusion!! :(

They look like 2 different colours lol When i saw it in person, it didnt look like those two pics. It was much deeper and much more vibrant. But it was sunny out, so im guessing as the sun goes down, the green pops more.

It looks like more like Trans pics on page 7. Thats the closest look to the ABM aveos, but when i saw it in person it was much more vibrant, i think its safe to say that Trans pics show the worst of what it will look like,and those look good to me

Which ones? haha... he has 2 posts on that page. Either way, I like the color in both sets of pics, and also in the ones that you posted. My favorite, of course, are the ones that I posted... those just look so good!! But if it's anything like any of those 4 sets, I'm fine. It's the one green one that fixxer56 posted that's got me worried! But that's the only pic I've see that looks anything like that... all of the rest show a nice blue... so maybe I'm just worrying too much? heh...

yea when i seen it there was no sun...i wouldnt mind dealing with the green when its getting dark cuz once its dark dark you wont even notice the green that much...or blue for that matter...and dustin the greenish one that fixxer posted looks awesome compared to the HHR i seen today...and about post 7 from tran...i actually PM'd him about that post asking where the pic was from because i like it in that post...but he didnt answer me...just told me to make my sig pics smaller :(

So I finally got to see this color today! I was going to swing by a dealer on the way to dinner, but decided against it... then randomly, somehow, an ABM HHR ended up in front of me... I heard a "woohoo!!" inside my head, haha... but it luckily was going the same way as me, so I got to check it out for a good few miles. It was sunny, and it looked good. Then the topper to it all... about a half mile away from where we parted ways, it suddenly became very cloudy... I heard another "woohoo!!"

So I got to see it in the sun and under the clouds, both with and without my sunglasses... and I would say that the last pic I posted up there (2 posts up) looks extremely accurate. You can definitely see the blue a lot, and where the bright light is directly hitting it, you can see a slight hint of "aqua" to it. But overall... it's definitely blue.

I feel so much better now!!!

lol... I'm just glad it didn't look like that bright teal pic!! I was so relieved! Especially since I had planned on going to a dealer on multiple days to see it in different lighting... I couldn't believe I got to see it super sunny and then instantly cloud-covered within 2 miles...

Now I just wait... haha........

ok...i went back to the dealership with a good digital camera today although it wasnt sunny out...but it was around 11:30...also in rained a lil...if its sunny tom imma go back...here is the HHR in ABM...it looked ALOT better then it did yesterday evening...




THERE'S MY BUS IN THE BACKROUND!!! who needs a ride?







As you can see in this pic of the bumper...im blocking some light so the green is creeping out a bit more...


This color is just weird...yesterday it looked MUCH MORE green...it was lighter out in these pics...but not sunny...yesterday it was light out but right b4 it got dark

Basically...the lighter it is the more blue u see...depending on the angle you will see a turquois looking cooler in direct light...kinda like fixxers pic...but for the most part it will be blue...but as the light gets duller the cooler shows more greenish jade(with blue)...so on a good note you have 1 cars with 2 colors...the blue with the green isnt too bad and the blue is just beautiful...so u have your blue during the day when the suns out and the blue/jade color when the sun hiding...i have yet to see it at night or in the sun...those pics will follow soon

Thanks for those! I was mesmerized by the color... I couldn't stop looking at it, haha... I still think the silver stripes are going to look amazing

Looking forward to your night pics now

Dustin, are you SURE you want silver stripes? How about cyber gray or gunmetal? Black, maybe white?

The one I saw was lighter/brighter... similar to the pics I posted (on page 5 I think?), except with a slight purplish tint to it off to the edges... kinda hard to describe... but I think that was the "Flash Blue" if I recall correctly...

Your blue looks like a mixture of everything though, haha... it's a darker blue from far away, with a slight purplish tint to it, but up close with a flash of bright light it almost looks like ABM... crazy! lol...

Oh I'm 100% sure about the silver stripes I was originally wanting white, but after seeing them on that red car a while back, I think they are too plain and very orange-peel-ish(?). When I got the paint samples, I loved the metallic shimmer of the silver, and think it will look great with the ABM
