It didn't sell, it wasn't that popular. Move on to the next color. Or as GM already done, put in a few specialty models.

I bought IBM. And, ABM was my second choice.

Must have a blue car. If they do a Kinetic Blue ZL1, I plan on getting one.

As for Aqua Blue, as much as I love mine, I think its gone for good.

I'd be more than happy if they never made another medium blue for the 5th gen (since I like having a rare color lol) but on the other hand I really feel releasing Kinetic Blue model wide instead of just a special edition would have been the way to go. I wouldn't be surprised to see Chevy release it on all models next year just like the Synergy Green....pissing off the current Hot Wheels owners/buyers.

Now if there is no 5th gen medium blue again, but a nice medium blue on the 6th....Wow will that ever make it even more temping to move on up lol.
I agree 100%!

Your right, we are the few and the proud. I can't tell you how often I hear compliments on the color and even now, after owning the car for 3 years it still turns heads. People just are not used to seeing the Camaro in this color, and in the right light it pops.

No, that is incorrect. That was for IBM, not ABM.

GM stopped making the color due to lack of sales!
............
Initial allocations limited preorders.
ABM was not available to preorder as a SS until until 4 months into preorder period.
.............
80 percent of preorders were SS.
.............
Look back, dealers and the computers messed up changes to preorders, RS was dropped and other screw ups, dealers were not used to orders, they sell out of stock, most could not even tell when your car was to be built, thus the threads here with members asking and following their builds.
..............
You made your preorder and waited, allocations ran dry, you were happy with your order, then the first cars sat in prison for months.
..............
By the time the few ABM's showed up, the 34to 3700 that were built, GM, who was not even going to offer the SS in ABM said lack of sales, color cancelled, also the white color was a late start and had few builds. So only a few who ordered late, after thanksgiving ordered ABM as SS, V6 orders which were 20 percent of preorders were about 1400.
................
If you could not order it for the first four months, there will be few ordered, and remember the limited allocations, miss the allocation and you can not order either. My dealer had it's first three come in as ABM, so obviously not popular.............

95% of loss of ABM is due to this :



Camaro brochure never looked like the true ABM. Even I overlooked it, and changed my order when I saw it on photo on Camaro5. There is not one day that passes without hearing how that color is beautiful.
