thought I was set on a black...but then

I saw a red jewel tint coat camaro for the first time drive by me when I was at a stop light...**** that color just makes the whole car just POP!!! so needless to say, I got on the phone and called my dealer and changed the color from black to red jewel. I mean when I saw the black I was like "****, thats a nice car" and when I finally saw the red jewel I was like "DAAAAMMMNN that is HOT!!" I have always liked black on a muscle car but that color really brings out the angels and the lines of the camaro IMO

Yeah, I know! Choices, choices, choices. I haven't seen a color on a Camaro that doesn't look. I am down to choosing between Victory Red with White rallys, Summit White with Inferno Orange rallys, or Cyber Gray Metallic with Black rallys. I have time to ponder those choices, but I know what you mean. Seeing the colors in real life conditions makes a world of difference. Good luck to you!

I think the color was definitely the hardest choice, since it looks good in any color!

I originally ordered Cyber Gray, then switched to Red Jewel.
