Can someone explain the ugly blue colors GM has offered ? Why not some of the retro blues or the gold with white stripes ?
Thanks.

I like the imperial blue myself, reminds me of the blue the AF uses in the dress uniform.

Doesn't matter to me either way. :D Cyber Metallic Grey is my color of choice for the new Camaro.

I'd prefer Hugger orange to the offered Inferno Orange any day. I'll just see what's available when I go to order mine in a couple years. Another color that I'd like to see is Frost Green, but that's highly unlikely to ever make the cut.

Maybe they'll offer Hugger Orange when the vert is in production. Seems fair since the concept is that color.

I actually wanted the Inferno Orange, so I'm "as happy as a little guuuurl".

.........mmmmmmmmmm, nope -- concept car was not Hugger Orange. Hugger orange had no metallic in it -- the concept has a lot of 'pearl' tone to it....

The original Hugger Orange was Acrylic Lacquer -- which you cannot use anymore (emissions rules...) -- we now use high solids waterborne paint -- and, if you'll recall, we offered "Hugger Orange" in 1999 -- and about the only time it appeared to be true "Hugger Orange" was at about 9:30 in the morning in September in Canton, Ohio. (!!!) -- our paint folks with PPG and BASF worked stupid amounts of time to try and get a real Hugger Orange -- but it was not to be. (a tint-coat would get it closer...)

I think that a lot of people will love the Solar Flare when they see it in person in the sunlight...........

Gold with white stripes?????

(I loved the Persian comment....!!) ---

I love Gold -- me and you and a handful of people in the world.......

We offered Sport Gold and it barely made it thru one model year -- Gold simply doesn't seem to sell on Camaro or Corvette.........
