Chevy Cobalt Blue Flash Metallic ( kinda gross to me)

55 posts in this topic

Um...how is that blue 'flash'? :scratchchin: Looks like a flat blue to me, similar to what Dodge used on its trucks in the late-90s. I like the deeper blue better.

Exactly, and don't forget the "Pale Iris" that they had on their minivans. Ick! :puke:

I never like light blues on cars. A medium, bold blue, or a dark blue can look good, but lighter blues always just look too pastel and make me think of easter eggs & baby cribs.

It's a love it or hate it shade... I personally liek it and it has a LOT of depth actually!

This color would look awsome on a '77 Firebird or a street rod... IMO.

That a very ugly shade of blue with no depth to it. It looks like they stole the pastel paints from teh first gen Neon.

I tried to get pics of that Imperial Blue one, but autotrader had posted the car as already purchased, so I wasn't allowed to view pics, sorry

Are you referring to the Polar Blue Metallic? That one's a powdery blue that looks great, IMO, should be expanded to more lines. Or are you thinking of the Light Amethyst Metallic (aka Light Quartz on Buick Lucerne, Mystic Gray on Cadillac DTS-love that one too). That Neon matches a Parma Violet colored pencil I have-I always liked that, but hey, that's alright. Already seen a few Imperial Blue Cobalts, they look alright.

They did not have anything this "highliter blue" in the 1980s... :huh:

Oh, and DF: that peeling-paint-violet on the Neons, Voyagers

& Startuses was a flat color... very FLAT. This is a metallic

shade and can not even be compared to that Mopar shade...

it's like comparing White Diamond to Ford Refrigerator White!

It looks about as metallic as $1 spray paint. It's completely lacking in depth. This one, on the other hand, has depth.

Or more accurately, comparing blue crap to blue crap with metal flakes in it. Both are ugly shades of blue.

Although, I have to say that recently, Blurple (aka Laser Blue Metallic) has grown on me, at least on the Cobalt.

Well that's why they make chocolate & vanilla.

BV: the lighting on that Alero is not even close to the same.

I'm just going to add one more thing - that blue is the same shade of blue on the bristles of my toilet brush.

No, I'm not posting pics.

The hell it's not. In both pictures the sun is clearly shining evidenced by the sharp shadows. How is that not close to same?

As well, I got to see it in person, and yes, it's a very flat color for being metallic. It clearly lacks in depth, especially in comparison to that blue of the Alero/Grand Am. I should, my mom's 00 coupe was that color. I remember it vividly and you can see the obvious difference in pictures. Here are some other light conditions shown with this color since the one I originally posted somehow wasn't "close".

All of them clearly show more depth. I don't know what you're smoking.
