At least you can get a nice blue on the new Chevy trucks now. Maybe there is hope for the new Camaro.

YES, YES, YES. The main reason I haven't seriously considered a upgrade to a newer model. Something around this tone/hue will work just fine.

The main reason we don't see many blue cars is because the manufactures are currently convinced people don't want it. The HotWheels Camaro is a great color, especially in person...I haven't met anyone who said they didn't like it. (I would go order a 1LE Camaro in HotWheels blue right now if it was available)

The first C7 I saw in the wild was a Laguna Blue. What are the odds of that? If this isn't a popular blue, I don't know what is

Absolutely nothing. It's my favorite color, in fact. I just sit back and smile at the pleas for blue ever since Aqua was cancelled. No matter how many times we're told the answer - the quest is relentless...and I admire that.

It's very strange, when I think about it from a personal standpoint....I really do love the color blue...a medium-to-dark blue being my favorite. Yet, I don't foresee myself ever buying it on a car. And I don't really know why.

After finally seeing Kinetic Blue in person I really liked it but I think I like ABM better.

Yep. The new Colorado has what appears to be a nice blue coming. (No real pics have been shown yet). The new Silverado has a great blue as well. I would like to see it in person but from the pics it looks great.

That's interesting that though you do love a particular shade of blue, you don't envision yourself buying it on a car. It could be that you have another favorite color that supercedes it **cough**

So is there that much politicking within the GM suits to have certain colors being approved from year to year? I think they missed out on rare opportunity to see how well a medium blue could be successful with the Kinetic Blue color. I think they could have sold AT LEAST another 50 units without the Hot Wheels package

In your opinion, what would it take get another color similar to it to come out for the Camaro?
