2010 Chevrolet Camaro: Why Silver?

When I heard we were adding a 2010 Chevrolet Camaro to our long-term fleet, I was so excited! Until I saw that ours was silver. Ugh. Bo-ring! Turns out Oldham asked the folks in charge of buying the Camaro to get any color except yellow because of the whole Bumblebee stigma.

OK, I realize color preference is all subjective and has nothing to do with the performance of a car blah blah blah but shouldn't a car like the Camaro be dressed in something a little snazzier or bad-ass? You know, to make everyone lust after it? As it is, ours seems almost invisible. So I went on Chevrolet's Camaro site and built my own. I like both five-oh magnetic reds -- Red Jewel and Victory Red -- and the black. Now that's better.


What color would you get?
