That means the plant would have to crank out 320 Camaros a day to meet their target. 320 a days means they could fill this week's orders in 2-3 weeks after production starts.

I have no idea if it is even possible to build 320 cars a day - it sounds like a lot. But that is one way to calculate it. Someone want to chime in?
Its possible to build over 320 cars in a single shift. I've heard that it takes less than a minute from one car rolling off the line to the next. Oshawa is regularly the most productive plant in North America. Also, its a bit misleading to base it on how many cars GM wants to sell because the Camaro model year is going to be about 18 months.

My dad says that they had 3rd gen. Camaros/Firebirds rolling off the assembly line at Norwood literally one after another, I think around 900 vehicles a day.

One day, a guy called in sick and they told him to head to the end of the assembly line to drive the finished vehicles out of the plant. It was the best day he ever had at Norwood.

No, they can start as early as they want, as long as the emissions and other requirements that have been set for 2010 have been met. It all depends on when the government releases that information, but it's probably out already.

based on what we know...

100,000 Camaros in the 2010 model. 18 month run. if there are no delays and the plant produces the car continuously through the run without any work stoppage, GM will produce an average of 182.481752 Camaros per day

provided my math on all this is correct. i've been known to be wrong in the past. i also did not factor in weekends and holidays. this is just an overall average

I know here in MI the dealers finally got there act together. Although theorder sheet he sent me still doesn't have the $$$ in the work sheet?????? WT!!! anyway he assured me it is in the system.

They are alloted 32 over their 5-6 dealerships and I was on thursday. They only required $500 down and it is refundable if I don't take delivery!!!!!! Yea right knowbody else is getting my ride!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My dealer expected them to be sold out of allocation over the weekend. It wil be interesting to here????

I'd like to think that we'll know more by close of business tomorrow when it comes to sales... should have a first number of how many it sold in the first 7 days of ordering.

MSRP...and Availability

So Saturday morning I go to my dealer and the 3 that they had were already ordered and accounted for...so now im on a crazy hunt..but with work and school I wont be able to go on my hunt until next weekend...not to mention they want 2,000 for the deposit and they are chargin 5k over msrp!!! I dont want to do business with these clowns anyway.....im just afraid by this weekend...I will be too late and there will be no more at any other dealers here in the bay area for all of you who have ordered...should I stand firm and demand that I get the car at MSRP????..Ohhh The Agony :(
