Still same question. How can it be 000001 (or is it) when all the IVERs and PREPROs have been driving around for months. They must have VIN's; therefore, IMO, there has to be something in the VIN # to differentiate them from the "regular production" ones. Or not?

Whats the earliest TPW we have seen so far? Last week? this week? next week? NOPE, the first I recall is the week of the 16th... Hmmm they start production that week don't they?
What does that tell you?

I really doubt they have already started building our cars yet. because nobody's event code has proceded to that point yet..

The Silver Ice Metallic they had at the Houston Auto show had the plain black wheels like you see in the photo, so I think that's they way they are going to look. Just my opinion from what I saw at the show.

I'm having a hard time telling the SS models and V6 models apart from the rear, when the SS badge is not visible. Is the exhaust or rear bumpers different?

I wish the SS were more distinguishable visually from the LS/LT models, since I'm spending quite a bit more, but I guess the true officianados will know when my big V8 comes rumbling down the street.

emblems and the exhaust outlets are the only difference that I can tell...

Those are most likely saleable cars, they have the window stickers and onstar stickers on them. Its not like they are gonna build every ordered car from the first to the last all in a row. They will build dealer stock cars along with ordered cars at the same time. They are starting slow and should be ramped up to full speed on the annonced start of production day. And I can assure you that there will be upset folks who ordered a car but then see cars sitting on the dealer lots and be pissed at how long its taking their ordered car to arrive.


Same thing happened with the Challenger guys.

There are different series of VIN numbers. I'm not sure exactely how it works, but there are more then one #1 VIN numbers, each are just a different series. For example: When Dave Ressler bought the ZR1 last year he thought it was the first one made, and yes it is the first of the series but it is not the first one made. Jay Leno has the first ZR1 made. I think the VIN on Ressler's ZR1 is 5900001 and Leno's is 5800001, or something like that(not exactely sure with those numbers)

I hope that make at least a little sense.

It's simple to tell the difference between the LS/LT and the SS. The SS is the one that is in front of you and the LS/LT is the one trying to keep up behind you.

Actually....The rear diffuser panels are different between the LS/LT and the SS models. On the SS, the bottom edge extends slightly lower (covers more of the mufflers), especially in the center, and the 4 "vertical fins" are wider. Unless the LT model has the RS package, you can easily distinguish it and the LS from the SS due to the lack of the rear spoiler.

I guess those that wanted the SS to look significantly different, you are kind of out of luck on the rear, but you certainly got the more agressive looking front end (love it or hate it). I suppose you could always buy a 'vette.

On the ZR1...
Regular production ZR1s start with vin 800001
The first one is Cyber Gray 1G1YR26R895800001 (owned by Jay Leno)
GM used a different 900000 vin sequence for Mr Ressler's BD1 car, it's 1G1YR26R495900001.

Currently the production sequence for CTF cars has began with a 0. I'm guessing that they'll make production cars start with a 1. So the first VIN will likely be 2G1FK1EW9A9100001 (a discussion of VINs can be found here). Who knows if they'll do something like the ZR1 with Hendrick's car and give him a different VIN series than anyone else.

Thanks for the warm welcome. Before I was a Stang woman I was a Chevy girl. My 1st - SS candy apple red 69 396 and I did have a new 77 Z28 - white manual.

These new ones are amazing. I can tell you guys are all drooling. Thanks again for letting me in here. Enjoy these new toys.

RS w/SS

A Tidbit of info I haven't seen on this site yet is that the badging differences you will see on an SS and an SS with the RS option. The SS badging in it's standard form is silver. When you add the RS to the SS the SS badge becomes Red. There will not be any "RS" badge on an SS car. You can see that in the pictures of the SS cars..the black one facing the fence has red SS badges (it has the RS option) will most of the other SS models have silver badging. The LT cars will have an RS badge on them when that option is ordered.

This has been hashed out, thanks for the info though! BTW welcome to site!

30-35 sounds about right. As I said, those babies have been sitting there for over two weeks. I haven't seen anymore come or go since.

BTW, weve seen v6s with the lower rear diffuser as well, so im not sure whats going to production. I think, both cars are getting the more lower rear diffuser, i think, not sure.
If anyone still drives by and sees these, can you take a pic of the IOM with the stripes, preferably the IOM with CGM stripes please, pretty please,? Thank You!

Great Assortment!!!

Seeing those pictures of all the Camaros at the factory has been the most exciting pics to see to date. Reminds me of a time when I pulled into a Chevy lot in Pekin Illinois and saw about 20 new Iroc's, Z28's etc for sale. So freaking cool!!!!!!
