Aqua Blue Metallic...my final verdict.

I looked online and saw that a dealer just outside of town has a 2009 HHR in "Aqua Blue Metallic". Well, I just had to drive out there yesterday to check the color out in person. I looked at it at every angle, tried to picture the Camaro in that color, and came away disappointed. This color just doesn't "pop" like it should. Granted, the sun was somewhat hazy, but I'm sorry, this color sucks IMO. Too drab and geenish looking. Just across from the HHR was a 2009 Pontiac G8 in "Stryker Blue Metallic". NOW THAT IS SWEET! How about offering that or "Jetsream Blue" GM? I'm begging!!! I really don't know what color to get. Maybe Victory Red like my 2008 Sierra...I just don't know. If anyone else has seen ABM in person, I want to know what you thought of it. I know Jinx isn't gonna like it!

I like both aqua blue and imperial (navy) blue.
The Colorados in aqua blue are just hawwt.

The blue on G8's is "Stryker Blue Metallic"....waaaay different than "Aqua Blue Metallic". The "Stryker" blue is really neat....needs to be on the Camaro!

Unhappy

Trust me, it really doesn't look to good in person. At least, I didn't like it anyway.

IMO, it's too aqua and not enough blue.

Camaros have to share to the color palette with the other line at the factory.

That does hold back the color possibilities. I was hoping for at least some modern interpretations of the 67-69 colors. That would be a home-run...IMO


I'm going to wait to see the colors on the cars in person before making the final color choice.
