Common Camaro Colors, and not so common!

I live in the moutains... So I see a lot of rusty camaros, the only nice one I have seen besides mine, is a white and blue one, which is almost Identical to mine minus louvers and 700-R4...

Pic for Reference:

I seen a dark purple, plum crazy type camaro a long time ago, it looked real nice but I wouldn't want a purple one....

What about you guys?

It seems like the rarest colors seem to be yellow, blue, and silver. I've seen yellow and blue ones before in person, but never silver.

Its also rare to see Heritage Cars like ours. i've only ever seen 2 of them driving around.

honestly around my area of long island, i hardly ever see a thirdgen anymore, in any color....it's weird b/c I've always had the mind set they were a dime a dozen, but that is far from the case now. Since I have got one(alittle over 3months now) I could probably count on my hands how many I've seen around here, and thats including my buddies 89RS. I think there geting rarer, maybe that is just this area though

I remember when I bought mine back in 1989...it was red, that's you ever saw around was the reds, blues, blacks, burgandy...etc. So I decided to paint mine yellow in 1993 because no-one had that color where I lived, The car definately did get alot of looks in my town...next thing you now a buddy of mine decided to paint his '87 Trans am yellow...damn copycats!

Gunmetal Grey is kinda silver-ish




In my opinion, the rare colors out there are:

-That sunset orange color that was only offered like 1 year on the IROC-Z
-Teal
-Purple
-Gunmetal Grey
-Ultra Metallic Blue
-Any true heritage package (white/red, red/black, black/red)

I find the 'rarest' colors to be:

1. Silver (85)
2. Med. Orange Met.
3.Yellow
4. Gunmetal

My dad used to own a silver 85 iroc with a h.o. 5spd<= rare. Sold it for $800 too. And I almost bought an yellow 87 Iroc. until i figured out how much insurance was lol. But I am pretty sure i've seen all other colors in person included the ones listed.

The color that people are refering to is Medium Orange Metallic, only offered in 1988. Sunset Orange Metallic is the 4th gen color. Heres a pic of my car, still original paint.

Mine is the Dark Metallic Grey (aka Gunmetal Grey)

Im still debating whether to paint it the same color or to paint it Ultra Blue Metallic.

Any thoughts?

Note that I would much prefer the blue, but i dont hate the grey.

Here's another pic of a green Camaro here. Was a PPG mix but I lost the codes so I dunno what they are anymore (but dosn't matter because the car is being painted again).

In 1982, 29,2xx Silver Metallic Camaros were produced. This was second only to White with 29,4xx produced. There ought to be one or two out there some where still running.

I have one of the white ones in my garage. It appears from the color breakdown on camarosource.ca for 1982 Camaros that the rarest color( other than the Indy Pace Car color scheme) is the Light Jade Metallic, followed by the Dark Jade Metallic and then Gold Metallic. Light Jade was apparently only available on Sport Coupe and only about 1100 were produced. Wonder how many of those are still around

Both Jade colors were only available for the 1982 model year. Guess those colors just did not sell well enough to keep around.

Silver Met. was available on IROC's in 85 only. I suggest that silver and silver met. are two different colors. At any rate, for the number of "silver" Camaros produced from 82-88, I'm surprised I've never seen one.

While i see an ocasional 92 in my color (purple haze) theyre usually not in that good condition.. A buddy of mine has a Jade Grey GTA too, which is kinda rare at that.. so when we get our colors together its kinda neat.

I think ive seen 3 in my color around my area, sooo...

here's an example of my car..(as though you guys havent seen it enough already)

The most common thirdgen color around my neck of the woods is the ultra-rare "4-tone" job where the majority of the car is flat black but has a blue door, a red hood and a maroon spoiler.

Seriously, I have one of only three NICE thirdgens around here. The other two are Camaros. One has 85 orig. miles (what a waste). All the other thirdgens around here are crap.
