GM slows production at plants due to winter storms. Camaro affected.
 
Seems like crappy weather causing road closings has made GM slow or stop production at some of the Canadian plants. The Camaro is one of the affected models. So if yours is on order you might have to wait a bit longer. :(

If you think early winter weather is causing you headaches this season, you should hear what General Motors and Ford are putting up with. The companies have seen production slow in at least seven of their manufacturing facilities in Canada and the Midwest thanks to road closings. According to Bloomberg, The General was forced to either slow or stop production of at least eight models, including the Chevrolet Equinox, Camaro and Impala as well as the Cadillac CTS and STS. And Ford hasn't fared much better – the Blue Oval has brought production of at least six models to a stop.

Among the FoMoCo casualties of this week's winter wonderland? The Flex, Edge and Explorer, but work was also held up on the Lincoln MKT and MKS. Additionally, the slowdown may impact the automakers' fourth-quarter results, since most carmakers record their revenue when vehicles are assembled at the plant.

Interestingly enough, Chrysler, which operates facilities in Canada, has apparently not had to slow or stop production because of the weather. Likewise, the Honda plant in Marysville, Ohio is operating normally so far this season.

GM SLOWS PRODUCTION AT OSHAWA PLANT
 
Is it because of the snow ? or is it because of the Holidays ?

I worked for General Motors for 30 yrs and I have never seen them shut down for snow, but they do shut down alot of plants for the Holidays normally between Christmas eve and New Years, and some plants longer.
