THe Camaro website shows it as Interim availability. I recall seeing somewhere that it won't be available until possibly the summer.

I personally don't understand why either. I have a white SS convertible and would have thought it would be a rather mundane color to offer at the start.

Actually, I like white cars. They tend to stand out to me.

The pink girlie is correct. No rhyme or reason, it just is. Like the HUD. You want white, you have to wait for it.

Rumor has it that the pace car for the 2009 Indianapolis 500 will be the 2010 Camaro in white with orange stripes, and GM is holding off on offering white until afterwards, to make the pace car stand out more.

^^^ That would match my 30th anniversary car (and of course the 69 Z10/Z11 plus I think they had some in 92? with that combo)! It's a great color combo and it's hard to miss.
