Patron Camaro Saint

[QUOTE= Is there a patron saint of Camaros that I can pray to?[/QUOTE]
YES, since you asked I will let you in on this:
Buy a 2010 Hot Wheels Camaro,they are all silver right now
Dig a whole by your driveway
Wrap the Camaro in foil
Put it in the hole back bumper to the bottom
Pray that your order will get done before the cut off date

This worked for me...mine is in the garage now and is it sweet!!
If this doesnt work....you may have to get the Synergy Green color.

I love knowing she will be rare, I have only seen one here in my area.
sigh.. ordered mine in july.. still no word on a production date... but i guess if the last date of ABM production is november 30, my car HAS to be made by then, right? riiight?? :(

But the constraint 0-10% on the LT RS package is also working against me. Hopefully GM will be smart and let the ABM ones flow through prior to 11/30. GM, if you are listening, PLEASE build my car! For that matter, please build all the ABM's that get in the order pipeline by 11/9. This about customer service and doing the right thing, here. I'm hoping to get an order number tomorrow. Wish me luck. Is there a patron saint of Camaros that I can pray to?
hey man, can you give me more info about the LT constraint you're talking about? thnx

You need to find a dealer that has an allocation ASAP and make sure the deposits are refundable.

I had heard there were constraints to the LT's if you ordered stripes. I didnt, I have aftermarket stripes in mind. I found them ( the time constraints) on this site somewhere, i just dont remember where!

Go back to the Camaro5 home page, scroll down to the 23 Oct item, and click on the LINK in the last sentence. You'll see LT RS is on constraint 0 - 10% availability for next 5 to 6 weeks. This is a double whammy when combined with ABM phase out. I plan to bury TWO Hot Wheels next to my driveway to counteract the negative forces ... also found out that St. Christopher is the patron saint of automobile drivers, so I'll be adding daily prayers. While I'm add it, might as well offer Jobu cigars and rum - it worked for Pedro Cerrano for hitting the curve ball - and this is quite a curve ball GM is throwing us!

2009 Solstice in Hydro Blue

I saw this Solstice in Hdro blue today at Hendrick Pontiac in Cary, NC. It's much brighter than ABM. I don't like it anywere near as much as ABM. If you can't follow the link go to ebay search 2009 Pontiac Solstice you can't miss it.

If that would have been the blue I would have gotten either IOM or RJT.

when I went to the camaro tracking site, it didnt give me a code, just said it was "order scheduled for production". Then it has a status date below that that says 11/09/09, so would that be the day they broadcast the order?

More info on the ABM phaseout that my dealer faxed to me today. Didn't see this on that original 10/23 thread. I apologize if this was posted elsewhere:

"Aqua Blue Metallic is the lowest penetrating exterior color for Camaro. This exterior color had to be discontinued to open a paint line for an exciting special exterior color that will be introduced at this year's SEMA show - Synergy Green."

Then there's a whole paragraph on the Synergy Green special edition, which says ordering starts in January and production in February. All I have to say is, "yuk!" I can't believe they are shutting down the ABM line to make room for that slimy green color.

weeno310, I'm no expert, but if you are still sitting at 1100 after all this time, I think your dealer is the problem. Seems to me that if your dealer has allocation, then once they enter it into the system, then you should go right to 2000 at a minimum. And your dealer should be able to give you an order no.

Definitely your dealer. they say they have allocation but they really dont, i would get your money back if you made a deposite and find another dealer that has allocation. i ordered mine on 9-24 and was accepted by gm on 9-25. and now mine is Indy being shipped to me in 8 weeks only

i am sorry your having such a problem with your dealer, i hope it works out well for you

Guess you should do what I did, my car stopped working so I went on the internet and called locally to see who had camaros in stock. Went to the first place that had one and bought the ABM one sitting on the showroom floor that had 17miles on it. No waiting no fuss, only thing is that I had to wait until Monday since they were not open on Sunday.
