I've been a fan of Grabber Blue since it debuted in 1970. Grabber Blue looked pretty sweet on a '70 Boss 302!

I was more specifically pointing to the S197 stangs (what I typically see) There’s a guy that owns one and he crosses my path everyday, all year long. It looks very much out of place in the winter. After all these years of seeing him, any fondness I may have had for the color has all but evaporated. To each their own though, I’m sure he’s happy with his choice!

Love the color. It's great that Camaro still offers a variety of colors.

Drove by the local Mercedes & BMW dealerships. Boring. No color what so ever. Sea of gray and black.

This is true but that's what sells. All the camaro zl1s in Canada currently on autotrader are black, white or grey. Just one red hot. 27 of them on there.

I like it!

But I’ll never have a Camaro in anything but black.

When i bought my Camaro in satin steel, it looked really good, but later realized i was tired of grayscale colors that have been all my past car colors except for one. So, i wrapped it in gloss blue like this new color and think it's great! Now my view on car color is there's grayscale and then there's color, and there's way too much grayscale (which is something like 75% of vehicles). I now think i'd take any color over grayscale: red, green blue, yellow... well not every color, i don't think i could drive a pink Camaro .... LOL.


After saying all that, my next car will probably be black. Not because i want a black car, it's just easier wrap with my mediocre wrapping skills.

Currently BMW has the following colors available in regular-production cars:

-Misano Blue Metallic
-San Francisco Red Metallic
-Isle of Man Green
-Sao Paulo Yellow
-Portamiao Blue Metallic
-Sunset Orange Metallic


and many more "colors." They are offered, people just aren't buying them so if I were a dealer I'd stock what people wanted as well.

I never called around, but the internet says ~$3k. My youtube watching also found it's about ~40hrs labor for someone that knows what they're doing to wrap a coupe, so that price seems consistent with the labor.

Anyone else think this car styling looks like Speed Racer's Mach 5?🤔
Go! Speed racer!...Go Speed Racer!!...Go Speed Racer...Go..ohhh!!!😮

I don't like it. And, it's all good as I've never been on Twitter and Facebook. I prefer my life not be an open book.
