Nearly 3,000 Camaros ordered in the first three days
 
Don't know if this was posted or not, but...WOW.

Nearly 3,000 people stepped up for a 2010 Chevrolet Camaro during the first three days since General Motors opened up the order bank.

And those people will be waiting at least four months before they get a car, as production isn't scheduled to start until February. Those who have placed an order will get updates from GM, including notification of the target production week for their car.

GM will build the Camaro at its Oshawa, Ontario, assembly plant.

Also, the automaker has yet to start taking orders for convertibles. The 2,944 sold orders taken since Monday are all coupes.

There might be another large group of orders submitted this weekend, when many people will have the time to visit a dealership.

GM opened up the order window earlier than it typically does for a new car because of the pent-up demand for the new Camaro, a GM spokesman said.

More than 600,000 people were "hand raisers" who had given GM an e-mail address in order to be notified about Camaro news.

Hmmm that is 3/4 Camaro for every dealer there is.


Basing that off the fact that i believe there are 4,000 dealerships.

franknbeans 10-16-2008 08:49 PM

ZZcamaro 10-16-2008 08:52 PM

Hmmm high demand!! I would build it sooner...but that was just me, and nothing ever goes my way.

Well GM, look what you did... you cracked the door of Heaven and all are pouring in to grab their Camaros. Bravo... :clap::clap:

I am wondering now that gm knows the initial demand if they will start production early?

blackZbandit 10-16-2008 09:14 PM

This is soooooo beautiful to hear! I was heartbroken when they stopped production in 2002; I was 19, 20 years old and feared that my dream of buying a brand new Camaro would never come true, but here it is, even in these bleakest of times, not even fully born yet but ALIVE AND KICKIN ASS!!

Oh if only...

:chevy:

I dont think they can start production earlier and still call it a 2010.

Rizzo 10-17-2008 11:28 AM

My dealer got 27, but they are unsure how it was going to be distributed over time.

Hylton 10-17-2008 11:31 AM

I'd be willing to take a 2009 car. One of what - 2,000?

Camaro_Corvette 10-17-2008 11:36 AM

Yes! Go :chevy:
