Question Yellow Camaro

Hello I am new to the forums and just had a quick question. I ordered a white 1ss with a black stripe. I was waiting for 3 weeks for it to come only to hear today that it has been held up at GM due to damage. I was then offered a yellow ss with a black stripe at the same price (was originally higher but since I've been waiting they dropped it). I dont have a problem with the yellow and black stripe but I want to know what others opinions are on the color. Is it a show off color like HEY LOOK AT ME!!!!! and will it be odd that I am buying one?( I am a male)

My wife said if she got the car she would have gotten yellow. I see the color and it screams "LOOK AT ME"

It is definately noticable. But I'd get what you want.

Color is a personal preference! I'm female and as you can see, mine is CGM w/black stripes. I don't associate a color to a gender, unless you choose to put pink or rainbow stripes on it, then maaaybee . I have friends that are guys that drive yellow Camaros. Yellow is an eye catcher, and it will catch everyone's eye, so be prepared for that.

The car is an eye catcher, I have been followed home 4 times by the local police since I got him in May.

Just get it, and enjoy!

i love yellow, but that's just me. i had a friend who had ordered a Camaro and it got damaged too. she went ahead and reordered what she wanted and they pushed it thru quick for her.

All the colors look good IMO. But from experience, yellow attracts a LOT of attention. Even from bees. Seriously. I thought it was just the Zaino when it was freshly applied, but in Oshawa, they were buzzing around and landing on it there, too.

Can you withdraw the order without losing a deposit, then re-order on a different allocation so you can order the same options again? That way you don't get a "damaged" and repaired car, but the same car you wanted (sans discontinued color) in the first place.

I actually went through and bought the yellow. I didn't notice at firstbut I'm pretty sure it has the bumble bee package and looks awesome. Its got the RS package so the halo lights are amazing. Only hit 102 mph so far and that was in 3rd I love my camaro ..as for an eye catcher..I drove by some people and they were like screaming CAMARO!!! So yes very noticable. I will try to get some pics up here soon
