Unhappy Cyber Gray Metallic Delayed Until April

According to the CamaroZ28.Com Co-Founder

Quote:
This just in, the 2010 Camaro in Cyber Gray Metallic (the color I ordered mine in, and the second most popular color according to our poll conducted for Chevrolet, has been delayed slightly.

The issue is the final builds of the Impala of the Dark Tarnished Silver color (which is to be replaced by Cyber Gray Metallic). Impala has to complete the build of their remaining Dark Tarnished Silver orders and the Impala Oshawa plant has to be shut down before they can switch over to Cyber Gray Metallic. From what I am told, the Impala build schedule for Cyber Gray Metallic starts in late April which is assumed that is when the 2010 Camaros in Cyber Gray will also start.

Am I bummed? A little bit. Not a ton. I would rather wait and get the color that I want and to me, it will be worth the wait. I am sure some people will sigh and say something to the effect of "another delay". Can't blame them but AFAIK, it is only one color. http://www.camaroz28.com/forums/showthread.php?t=667718

Well, hopefully for those that ordered CGM, the delay will allow time for ABL to be included in our cars.

The changeover in paint colors has been confirmed in other threads on this site. The CGM Camaro will not be produced until the current Impala color run is complete. This is the same issue on the Camaro white as the current color run has to be completed first.

Patience, grasshopper. Patience.

I spoke w/ Cheryl Pilcher at NAIAS who shared this with me. I also asked Jason @ z28.com to confirm (and he did). I didn't want to put something out there and have folks get upset without doing a 'double-take'.

Jason is one of the focus group members (disciples), isn't he? I'd assume what he says is right on.

His podcast was where Chevy released pricing, with John and Cheryl, so I think his sources are pretty good.

April is the 'confirmed' date of the Cyber Gray production. Jason over there knows what he's talking about (he was/is a "disciple".)

Yup; we were informed of this as well. In fact, I believe TAG UR IT tried to convey that point yesterday at some point.......

Not a big deal...call it a "minor setback" for Cyber Gray.

Didn't we know about this issue in January? They were talking about having to finish out the tarnished silver color for a long time.

Its not biggie to me.... we'll be fine.

It was more of a rumor at that point. All we knew was that they hadn't produced suffiecient gray Impala's to replace the paint with Cyber Gray. I believe the Impala line was shut down for a few weeks? That is more likely than not the reason for this delay on Cyber Gray.

Later April based on current assesments.

This is, unfortunatley, one of the things manufacturers sometimes run into when producing more than one vehicle at the same plant...

And I stuck the info in the middle of a thread yesterday, so no one really got to see it. But I, too, said that CGM won't be sprayed until April.

I thought CGM was one of the top two ordered colors. Why wouldn't GM delay another less popular color instead?

OR - STOP MAKING IMPALAS AND SELL CARS YOU HAVE ORDERS FOR!!!

It's not that I'm biased or anything..... since I did order a CGM.

Since I'm one of the last allocations at my dealer, with the last color, it may be 2010 before I get my car.......

Can we get a CGM clock at the top of the page.....
