GM's *METALLIC(S)* paint ?

Because of the disaster in Japan,
Metallic paint has not been released as much as it use to from GM, does GM
plan on getting them back to the normal production of colors in the three major paints (IBM, CGM and RJT) for the camaro, lately I've seen white, black and red
mostly "yea, they are the basic colors !" (I've gotten bit by IBM bug & miss seeing its color) hoping to see more, soon.

Has any one other than me noticed this & any updates on the metallic paint's ?

Ohh...is the Xirallic getting replaced by another type ?, or is GM going to continue to use it ?

GM's logo is blue. I would like to see another bright blue color in the Camaro. Of course I wouldn't buy it because I already have one. I did consider Aqua Blue, but you know what, GM didn't even make accessories available for their blue that they have.

For example, no painted engine covers, or splash guards in blue.

yes, GM does need another blue in the Camaro lineup. By the time I was able to buy mine ABM was discontinued. What a bummer.

Only two reds, Victory Red and Crystal Red. Red has a lot more demand then blue does. That is why they discontinued the other blue

Since 72% of all American cars are white, silver, black or gray (in order of popularity). That doesn't leave much market share to divide up among the other desired colors such as red, orange, blue, green and yellow. And due to Bumblebee's popularity, an inordinate amount of yellow Camaros are sold. And according to Scott Settlemire, two blues did not sell well when offered at the same time so ABM was cut due to lack of orders/sales.

I know I said a lot of nothing here HotRod...but I thought it might be easier to see that it's pretty hard to divide up 28% very many ways and still make everyone happy.
