OK, camaro5 - I'm confused, are you saying that the jestream blue, the lighter blue - which closer resembles the 1969 lemans blue is the blue you are talking about being available on the ZR1?

Because the 2006-2007 lemans blue, which was replaced by jestream blue, is NOT a stadard offering on the 2009 ZR1, AFAIK.

lemans blue was ONLY available on ZR1 VIN #0001, which was auctioned off for over $1million, to a private collector. It, AFAIK, was the one and only factory lemans blue zr1 ever offered.

Just curious, because the 2006-2007 lemans blue was perfect on the vettes, and is my favorite (big surprise) color ever offered on the C6.

Not being argumentative, just want clarification. If they decided to start offering LMB again on the vettes, that would be cool!

Thanks.

Holy Crap! Someone as nut's about these cars as I am!

I stand corrected. As I read your post, that all came back to me. This is a picture of indeed the first 2009 ZR1.

"Meanwhile, the first salable ZR1 has already been built and will go to collector Dave Ressler immediately. The million-dollar price tag is roughly ten times what a ZR1 will retail for. The ZR1 is the most powerful Corvette ever, delivering 620 horsepower. Ressler’s car is painted Le Mans blue."

Thanks for refreshing me.

Sorry Turtle! I know you wanted an LMB ZR1. :(

Will this thread actually accomplish anything? I mean what will it take to get GM's attention? How can they be persuaded to offer the SS in Blue? I will do whatever it takes if it will make a difference. So if any body has any ideas or know what it will take pleased let us all know. We want BLUE.

I doubt that this will do any good. I don't believe anyone is doing anything beyond merely reading these posts and maybe getting mildly amused. I've not seen a single suggestion from these forums followed up on much less put into effect.

So if anyone thinks I'm negative, now you know why.

Yes it will. Read the quote in the OP's post. Rest assured, there are powers that be that are working on getting a blue color for the SS. Whether it happens we'll see, but there are people within GM pushing for it and the interest shown in threads like this can only help show the kind of interest there is.

Please show me something that changed because people on this or any forum suggested it. (I don't mean the disciples, either.... they're in a special case.)

I'd love to believe that they're listening but since they don't say anything in response to these threads I'm left hanging. If they say "we're reading everything and forwarding the info to our bosses!" then I'm left in limbo here and almost definitely missed my chance to get in any local dealer's allocation.

I can't rely on the hope things will change and place an order GAMBLING it will swing my way and then have to cancel it when things don't change... that's TOTALLY selfish and unfair to someone else who wants to place an order for a car that's NOT in limbo. I can't in good conscience deprive someone of their dream in hopes I can change my order at some point in the future. I know how much this means to enthusiasts and can't do that to anyone!

It's important to get your feedback -- that said, there ARE reasons to curtail option counts-- that's what holds costs down -- it eliminates a ton of part numbers-- and it aids in building a quality product. (if we built every car the exact same way, they'd have a perfect build...........)

Please -- tell us what you want -- but also understand that IF we don't or can't do what you ask -- please don't scream "TYPICAL GM!!" -- because that's simply not fair - and it's not true.........


I just read this elsewhere, and I couldn't ask for any more from Scott.

Well, Captian, I can not show you physical proof off the top of my head, but one specific thing comes to mind when you ask for proof or to be shown that the threads have any affect on GM and decision making.

While at Indy and in the 2 1/2 hour long Q/A session w/ the Camaro team, the subject over allocation was asked and how dealers will be allotted cars. I specifically remember Al Oppenheiser answering the question saying something almost identical to the effect of, "we are watching the msrp and below threads looking for those who agree to sell the vehicle at MSRP." He continued saying GM wanted nothing more than to sell, sell, sell so they could "dethrone the Mustang."...and those that could sell at MSRP or below were gong to get higher #'s than others.

Yes, he said "MSRP and below threads." Killer74Z28 was behind me and I immediately turned around seeing a wide eyed reaction to the statement and a big smile on his face. After all, he started the thread.

Other than that, I can not say anywhere, where a GM employee has said, "due to your voices about X,Y, and Z, we have decided to do _____." But, I can say we lobbied for Boston Acoustics, for an IPOD jack, for the USB, the homelink, Bluetooth, etc....and we got them all. How do I know? Because I was one of the ones begging for them years ago!

GM reads this stuff and it DOES influence their decisions. I remember reading someone saying GM actually has people employed just for this type of stuff. I mean....big company...they could easily hire someone to sit here and read, respond, ask questions, etc. It's really not that far fetched of an idea.
