I never realy was impressed with either of the 5th Gen blues. It was the only color I hadn't seen in person. My mind was changed. I honestly liked the color a lot. Unfortunately we NEVER encountered any sunshine on the whole trip. It shined while I was on my way to Chris's house, and after day broke on my way home. So I haven't seen it in the sun, but I would be just fine if I had one in IBM.

Shorter version;

It really looks good.

I think Tom may have had one of every color exept yellow and I'd put the IBM 3rd after the Black and RJT. But for me to move the blue ahead of some others, says something about the color.

Oh, ya, the lines. Without the sun, it was hard to tell.

That's how it was for me. But I just think IBM show the lines better.

Honestly CGM works better on the Corvettes IMO. Although it's still a nice color.

I agree with Milk! :headbang:

Mr. Wyndham 03-31-2010 09:47 PM

This will have to be settled at the Fest for me, I think...Everytime I go to a dealer, they have 7/10 colors, and never the one I wanted to see. Last time...they had yellow, red, black, RJT, yellow, and CGM.

I wanted to see IBM next to the RJT and CGM....but noooo....the closest I got was an IBM Malibu across the way a bit...it looked nice, but the CGM looked better on the Camaro than the IBM did on the Malibu...:laugh:

two more weeks........

it's been ABM or CGM for me, but GM already helped me decide that one

GTAHVIT 03-31-2010 11:37 PM

I'd only seen IBM cars in passing. Once going down the highway a freshly washed one in the sunlight drove by me... easy to do in the Mazda... :laugh:

I changed my mind at that point. I was a CGM guy also... Very glad I made the switch.

:thumbsup:

Blade 04-01-2010 05:32 AM

I was between the CGM and ABM, by the time I ordered they had discontinued the ABM.

I still have an itch to paint one Jetstream Blue, I love that color.

Tom Henry Racing 04-02-2010 05:47 PM

AS USUAL, there is only a smidgeon of TRUTH in the FBodfathers grape juice fueled rantings. With said smidgeon he tries to make it ALL believable. So I will fess up. There is indeed one less Z06 on the planet due to an overly rambunctous female passenger interrupting my process of shifting into 2nd gear ( the car). OH Well it makes a good story anyhow. Now why anyone would leave a stump next to the road, that is higher than the ground clearance of a Z06...well there oughta be a law. As for the Weasel part, I like to think of it as an affectionate moniker assigned by my favorite cousin, seeing as I only have one. Someone tipped him off about the trumpet, as i intended to do a wakeup call at the host hotel at 5AM. As for the Fishnet thing, he is trying to shift the spotlight away from himself on that one. Rumor has it he has been studying CynAgains photos for proper usage, and indeed will unveil at the Camaro5fest.

Wow. I can't believe I hadn't read this thread before. This one needs to be a sticky for how to do a car journal. This was one of the most fun reads I've ever had. You guys rock.

Congrats on an awesome car, GTAHVIT!

Now PLEASE post up some VIDEOS.

For some strange reason, I have a terrible craving for oranges now...

Oh yeah, and a craving to take a drive to PA to visit THR...
