Great find. That's the combo I ordered. It looks exactly as I'd hoped. Thanks for posting!

I spoke with my salesman yesterday and he was given a shipping date of 19 Oct. I'm in south east Va, so it should be ready for pick up around the first of November.

The car was ordered on 1 Octocber.....a little quickker than expexted. Not really sure whether to believe it. We'll see how it goes.

That car is going to look really nice in the sun

Stopped by one of my local dealers today and found this one Granite SXT on lot. The car was fairly dirty, but I was able to get a few decent close up shots w/my camera phone to show the metallic in the paint. To me this color is much more akin to Chevy's Ashen Gray Metallic than to the Tungsten paint - noticeably more gray.

That's a good thing. I like the ashen gray on the Camaro. It looks like I was expecting. Thanks for the pix!

No problem. I've been searching like crazy to get a good look at this color so I figured I'd pass it along.

I did too; for a couple of weeks. Sent numerous emails to dealers who had them on the lot. I saw enough to feel comfortable placing my order, but it has not been until the last few days that some real good pix (yours included) have come around. Needless to say, I am, based on the new pix, very happy with ordering this color! Your sunlight pictures are excellent.

Here's a few shots of a Granite Crystal Metallic R/T Classic I checked out today. Very good looking car.
