Aqua blue girly?

So I'm ordering my 2lt camaro tomorrow and like many of you I'm fighting the color scheme battle. My mind seemed set in stone on inferno orange with cyber grey rally stripes. I was also thinking how sharp the aqua blue looks with the white stripes but I know I have to be very careful with that color as it's extremely "soft" toned. I don't want to drive past a smiling girl with the same color scheme as my car a year from now. Any input would be greatly appreciated guys. Thanks

NO...it's not girlie....and doesn't look "soft toned". It looks 100 times better in person than in any picture I've seen.

A color is a color! Unless you're gonna have it repainted "Barbie Pink" or something. I don't associate exterior colors with masculinity or sexuality. That being said, there isn't one color the Camaro comes in that doesn't look good. The ABM with the white rallys would be a nice combo. I'm leaning toward a Summit White with either IOM or CGM painted rally stripes. Good luck on your choice.

BTW, My neice bought a 2006 Mustang and had it repainted pink. Hmm! I guess she was daring to be different, and she was. lol!

I have an abm on order, so obviously, I don't think it's "girly." Forget what other people think... what do you really want?

I have one and agree with the others above...it's darker and pictures don't do it justice. I don't consider it girlie in any way and don't care if others do. Make up your own mind.

thanks a lot guys. I actually decided on the abm with white stripes. I think they should have called it classic blue or retro blue rather than aqua as it looks like the classic blue that camaros and vettes had back in the 60's.
