The dealers and the Chevy Cust Service reps have NOT been informed these cars are coming via direct truck. They are misinformed. ALL Z/28s WILL BE COMING VIA DIRECT TRUCK.

Mine still showed Bayed the day it arrived. The system does not update when it ships by truck, since it has never been that way for the 5th gen Camaro.

It sucks to wait, trust me, I already have! Mine was built 3/26 and arrived on 5/5. Mine also had an EH (engineering hold). However saying "inspected and cleaned" maybe inspected, but mine was pretty filthy when it arrived.

The problem is communication. The dealers are not informed when the truck leaves and is heading their way. And the GM cust service doesn't either.

It's a maddening waiting game

Mine had one encrusted bird poop on the roof.
Wax took 95% off and since I am almost 50 years old I can't really see the other 5%

Latest info from my salesman (awesome!) from a GM rep: "An engineering hold was removed today. So to my knowledge this can be shipped. It is a matter now of loading onto a train. Can’t give you a good eta until I see it on a train since we have had rail issues out of Canada also."

How about them apples bitchez? (said affectionately). Who to believe? What to believe? Somebody needs to step up and provide some bona fide, vetted information.

that stinks

I know Corvettes and COPOs could be picked up from the factory

Oh that's not very comforting. LOL

I just say, when it gets here, it gets here.

And I'll be ready whenever the call comes. LOL

Would be cool to have a "Delivered" thread with all the chronological order of folks here on C5.com who have them enroute and whatnot.

Would be cool for folks downstream waiting to be able to better gauge where their wait times might be.

If someone knows fact from fiction please enlighten me

Zfatuated,

The OnStar Family Link program is not available in Canada at this time. Sorry for any confusion. Let me know if you have any additional questions, I'm always happy to assist.

Thanks for the follow-up! Always good to get the facts out there for others to be aware of.

PS- Kindly drive up to Oshawa and ask them to get my Z/28 loaded on transport?

When did they start factory Corvette deliveries? You may be thinking museum delivery, which is NOT the same, even though it's across the street. The deal still goes through the selling dealer.

I hope they get more trucks for you Z/28 folks that are waiting.

I kind of figured when your SS was up 4-sale looking forward to seeing your Z/28 I will need a favor from you once you get it
