So I've got a girl question for everyone, just curious to see what everyone's favorite color is. I set up a poll, hoping I got all of the stock colors down, still think I missed a few. Also this thread is concerning the 4th generation only, 1993-2002.

That's why I said sorry first, I'm not familiar with the actual color names. That's why I put orange, blue, white...not arctic white, navy blue, and sunset orange metallic. Didn't know.

If referring to my post, that's not purple. Those were Monterey Maroon Metallic and Maple Red Metallic. Bright purple metallic was a 98 only color for the late 4th gens.

I felt the same way before owning a pewter car.. It looks really good when in dark areas I noticed. Love the color!

I think white camaros can look really good but they have to be clean and waxed they glow in the dark if done right

I honestly thought silver would be a more popular color for f-bodies. I love it because is so easy to keep clean and can really shine and have deep reflections when is taken for properly.

You don't like any Camaro from 1970 to today? Seriously?
