It still amazes me how many compliments I get on the color, it never stops.

Love the ABM. Please bring it back, reminds me of the MARINA BLUE from the 1960's.

ABL was my first choice when ordering, then I changed to IOM.

ABM was my second choice. I think I'd buy it if I had to do over.

Hard to deny this color gets the attention it should have gotten right from the start.

Wife and I took a little trip yesterday, maybe half hour to 45 minute drive to get to our destination. Nice sunny day. This car is going on 4 years old now, and I saw no less than 4 or 5 individuals turn around in their seats to get a good look at the car on the road, and one person gave us a thumbs up yesterday.

I'm telling you, if they don't offer a similar blue in the 6th gen, its going to have to blow me away in looks and performance before they can pull this car away lol

Seen this color at a local 5th Gen. meet. I like it very much. If it was offered on the 12's i would have bought one. Very nice color imo.

for all the newer members, ABM was available as were all other colors when pre-ordering the Camaro starting August 2008, BUT ABM was NOT available on SS models.
Camaro5 started petition, Scott (fbodfather) announced that GM changed it's mind around thankgiving, I ordered my ABM in December and prior orders 80% (about) were SS, so until then NO ABM SS's were ordered. No one wanted to change their order, problems with RS option being lost with order changes were common, and people did not want to lose their place in first allocation, as orders were placed and accepted by GM months later, I moved from 7 of 9 to number three at dealership, many, because of economy let their orders slip, mine was built on the friday that GM was still GM and delivered when GM was government motors 7 days later, mine never sat in dredded Hold.
So with all the preorders very few were ABM, since most preorders were SS, so very few ABM exist. because sales were low, I believe only 2200 ABM SS out of 3700 built.
Mine was 147th built in June 2009, of the 80,000 orders, so how could ABM not be lowest production, hence CUT.

Your one of very few, hence why GM stopped making the color available. Lack of sales.

I thought ABM was discontinued because of the tsunami in Japan that wiped out the plant that produced the metallic compound used to make ABM. I believe it was the only source for the metallic compound ingrediant.

It was announced prior to the big wave that it would be discontinued.

Don't bring back ABM, how about an older color like DBM...
