SoCal no AC red #384 available.

Talk to Jerry Pipen at www.winchevrolet.com

It has not arrived yet, but should be in the next week or two perhaps.

It was built about 9 weeks ago (June 10), and should be soon.

Tell him Pat McSwain sent you. I'm pretty sure you will get MSRP or better on it.

I hated to pull the plug on it, so I want to help him find a home for it. Only 5 red no AC were built for retail sale in 2014.

Tempting.. hope it sits due to non AC so they will be motivated when the sept incentives roll out. I love it, closest thing to a third gen 1LE since.

Nice of you, for sure, but -- at the same time -- you were incredibly patient. Not to bitch and moan, but this is the only area where Chevy & GM really dropped the ball. I can wait, I can be patient. But not having ANY idea of when your car might arrive is really tough to deal with, and there's NO reason for this lack of communication (though I'd love someone from GM to explain why I'm wrong).

Your wait seemed to be longer than anyone else's. In my case, I was in NorCal when my TX dealer called, out of the blue, and told me they'd just unloaded my car. It wasn't easy but I dropped everything, rescheduled what I could, and jumped a plane that night. Good thing I did, because by the end of the next day (right after I'd taken delivery) they put a hold on deliveries for the key fob recall. Also good that my boss (me) isn't a total a**-hole...

Point being, having NO idea when your car might arrive seems pretty ridiculous given the technologies available. Hell, take a single person, assign them the job of Z/28 concierge, and have them update the dealers weekly, and then daily (once the car's built). Notify them when the cars are loaded on transporters, and give the driver's cell number to the dealers. This can't be that hard...

EOR (end of rant) and

BRT, agree 100% with your comments. I thought my wait was long at 9 weeks from order to delivery. Finally, I realized why it is like it is. I am not GMs customer so they don't give a rat's ass about me.

Their dealer is their customer.

So after all this time and telling everyone how you had to have it the way you ordered it you are not taking it???????Odd to say the least.

It might seem odd that I waited that long and couldn't wait another week or two.

But that wasn't really the case. A week ago, nobody had any idea when or if the car would ever ship. I had the same thing happen in 2002, except the car never arrived. After 7 weeks of them saying it's in transit, deja vu kicked in, and I decided it was "lost" and bought something else instead.

I might end up with a Z/28 in the future. It's very possible some collectors will realize it's not a Hank Aaron Rookie baseball cars, and sell it with low miles at a loss.

But as it is, the ZR1 is a riot to drive. Tons of grins. Unlike what the magazine guys said, it's very easy to control at the limit of traction, at least under 70mph. Just turn all the babysitters off. The babysitters actually make the ZR1 harder to drive when oversteer kicks in. It's less predictable, and upsets the car. The only time I looped the ZR1 was with the babysitter on. And all the babysitter times were slower than the ALL OFF mode.

It's fast, but it's not scary fast like some turbo engines are. Wide powerband.

So after all this time and telling everyone how little you know about cars, yet that your opinion still mattered and you are still giving it????? Odd to say the least.
