I've already talked to 2 different chevy dealers and both told me that the mark up is not only stupid its ,Not going to happen HERE!!!
the mark up is a scare tactic and a shame on anyone who puts in to this lie.
I know that gm will find out about this and the press too.

The car doesn't come out for over 2 yrs and there is no option plans set yet and prices are not available (and will change many times in the next 2 yrs)
Also the car has to be made first and God forbid the economy saying dump time.

I learned a great lesson after 56 cars ,never give them what they say, car sales poeple are out to make profits not friends, so , let them claim the mark ups (its like y2k crapola ) It will media eaten by 07 and gm doesn't need that kind of negative market placing, especially about a car that is so popular to bring in a wide range of buyers.

(I won the andy rooney award, thank you)

I just wanted to check to see if anyone checked with a dealer and what their response was about getting their name on a pre-order list.
Just go down to your Chevy dealer and talk to a salesman. Tell him/her what you want to do. I guarantee they will help you out. If you don't like the price move on to the next one.

Although I do agree with not paying more and you are 100% correct about dealers making a profit not friends, simple economics (and if you owned a dealership) is that if people are willing to pay more than sticker the dealers are not going to say no and sell all the first Camaro's at a mark up.

GM would love the press, you can see it now, people are paying thousands over sticker just to get their hands on the all new Camaro......Free press from the media....you bet they love it.

If demand and the fools who are willing to pay over sticker is the reality in 2.5 yrs then you will get the greedy dealers marking up the new Camaro, but who is to blame?? It's the fools who pay more, not the dealers. What would you do if you own a dealership and someone wants to pay you $4K-$5K over sticker because they have to have it now?? Answer honestly now!

That is what I want to find out, if anyone has actually visited their local Chevy dealer yet and if so, what were they told. I did e-mail a few of my local dealers but have not heard back yet.

I just wonder and doubt they would accept a cash down payment 2.5+ yrs in advance. I ordered two "hot" cars before (Mini Cooper and PT Cruiser at MSRP) and it was 5-6 months prior to release date and they were confused then, I can only imagine years away if they could even manage that!

That's what I did. They said no info yet on when I could order but they would contact me ASAP as soon as I could. Then all I had to do is build it like I want it, options allowing. They said I would definitely not pay over MSRP.

I totally agree. I will say one thing though, Not every dealer is out to make a buck. There are plenty of dealers out there that want you to be a customer fore life. The average person will purchase 6 new vehicles in their life time. A smart dealer knows this and will try there hardest to satisfy every customer that walks through their showroom doors. As a result, the satisfied customers purchase 6 vehicle from his/hers dealership. That’s where the money is… The fun part is finding a dealer with this kind of attitude and smarts.

Bingo. I found my dealer...and already purchased 4 cars/trucks from them. With that history, I seriously doubt they will lose me to another dealer. As soon as I get the chance, I'm gonna swing by Ancira and see what my guy says.

Hey, and the first sucker has placed a bid on that ebay camaro. Unbelievable.... I'm gonna keep watching it and see if anyone else tries to outbid him/her.

Cool

This is the kind of crap that killed the GTO success...

Let's call this A-hole on his 800 number and rack up the phone bill!

Called the dealership today...seems my sales manager has since left the dealership to start his own deck business. SO.....I'm now talking to a different sales manager who luckily used to work with him. Anyway to the news.

New sales manager said based on all the information they have at this point in time, I will be able to place my special order in either March or April of 07. This is all he is able to forcast at this moment.

Check it out, the eBay auction has ended. I wonder if GM had anything to do with it?

320016440692

Bidding has ended for this item

The seller ended this listing early because the item is no longer available for
sale.

Ok, got some info today after talking to the head service advisor and new car sales manager at my local Chevy dealer. They said what I already knew, that you cannot order a new Camaro until 5-6 months before the release date, period.

The car physically isn't in the computer to order prior to that point and although they do get pricing info ahead of time, it's only a week or two before the car can be ordered on their system so they will not place orders or take deposit until they can do so. Plus the option packages are not know until that point as well.

They will take your name at this time and call you starting from the top of the list and it's up to you to come in and place the order and a deposit at the time when the can place the order. That is all anyone should be doing at this point and told me if they want to take your money now for a car you cannot order, look elsewhere. Also, they think the car to be out sooner than anticipated, so let's keep our fingers crossed.

As far as your last line, birdy, I wasn't told that by my dealer, but kinda got that feeling when talking to my guy. And...if my dealer is saying I should be able to place my order in March or April of 07, maybe the car is coming out sooner. Who was it that said they used to leak false information and then when they come out with the item, they would sit back and watch everyone go crazy?....hmmm. On top of that, if GM released it in 07', that would make it the 40th Anniversary Edition. They say it won't happen, but how convenient would that be! I'm only saying that it's a possibility. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

I sent them a message regarding the item. I wonder if they will respond. Probably not, but I'm looking forward to hearing them say GM made them take it off!! HAHAHA!!!

call me stuid, but I think I will wait until 2010. Let the price gouging go for the suckers, I will wait out all the bugs that will work their way out. In 98' the LS1 was introduced in the camaro and as you all know, it went to the shop often. Also, how often does a car manufacturer bring out the best to offer in the first year of production. If the ZL1 is offered, I'm betting that it won't be offered the first year back in production. Will visit Berger soon to let you all know what they have to say.
