Saw a transport with at least 3 Convertibles today!

Travelling in Toronto on Highway 401 eastbound today around 9:30am and my eyes almost bugged out. On the opposite side of the highway I see a transport coming toward me carrying at least 3 Camaro convertibles.

Two white with tan top and one what appeared to be Imperial Blue with tan top.

I say at least 3 because the cement divider in the highway was too high to see anything on the bottom of the transport. But there was no mistaking the artwork sitting on the top deck. No time to grab the camera phone and snap a picture, but at least we know they are rollling out of Oshawa in multiple colours. Pretty cool news!

Eric, you mean you didn't bump yourself when you added me to your list? Awww shucks! I think I can let that slide. I actually think you're one of the few who want it more than I do!!!

Sorry Tib... I've waited an awful long time for this!

Yes Pony, working here has its privileges I made sure that I was #1 on the list

I think he's got his eye on that rumored Pearl White if it happens. Frankly, that's a Buick color to me I hope those orange stripes hides the 'old man paint' under them!

(Yeah, poking fun on the guy who you're ordering your car from probably isn't very smart is it?)

It seems like the amount of vert questions has established there is justification for at least a "temporary vert forum". Once the hoopla dies down then I could see it done away with. However, as a member of another forum that has both verts and coupes I can tell you that by separating them it has benefited both members and the moderators by cutting down on general forum clutter because while both share the same mechanics both also have model specific characteristics.

Also, I think it totally sucks that Synergy Green isn't being offered because that was our first color choice, and I don’t think it makes sense to pay big bucks for a new car and then pay big bucks for a repaint. Because chances are you’ll never do it and every time you see the color you’re reminded of how much you wanted it in the first place.

Agree 100% on the no Synergy Green. That car would look AWESOME in green.

Almost right... White, IOM interior, but I'm stuck on the stripes... I'm not a big fan of the metallic stripes on the base white, so I'm thinking of painting Hugger Orange stripes on instead. I've checked the IOM interior w/ a paint sample of the Hugger Orange, and I think it looks pretty good together.

What about white with hugger orange stripes THEN a pearlized clear over the whole thing. A little expensive, but NOT as expensive as a complete repaint; plus you maintain the correct base color in all those hard to reach places e.g. engine, trunk, door jams. Don't know if this is possible, but just a thought.

I would love to see the hugger orange pearle as on the concept. That would seal the deal for me. Just not sure white with either black or tan top would look good to ME.

2011 Camaro Convertible

One hundred Neiman Marcus Edition of the 2011 Camaro was sold out in three minutes through the Neiman Marcus Catalog sales on October 19, 2010. This was record time! If this an indication of the impact the Camaro Convertible will have on the market........this will be a winner for GM. My speed dialing was not fast enough! Drat.

I'm sure my dialing finger WOULD've been fast enough given the chance,...but my middle finger first slapped it down then went into rigor mortis when it seen the price tag

Still sk-vert Frame ?

Hay every one,
Still not feeling well," gotta luv your kids (?) ", you guys herd a bought the Hennessy Convertibles....... OMG....... $130,K..... No Way !

PONY: you sure its not arthritis, he he he.....

Can't wait to see the top up !, IMO I like The Imp.Blue, I wonder if we're going to get more options on the interior colors (?), If GM put matching colored interiors I think they would sale fast (!?), hay any body know if GM is going to run inner liners for the vert tops, or does any one think they might paint the frame work to match the body color ?, I hope so.

The all new Convertible !, Welcome to the fleet !

Since I'm going IOM interior, and most of the interior will be black, I think the black top will look great w/ it!

SS-Eric: doe you know how many verts does the dealer have to sale in order to receave the verts, or can any GM dealer order one regardless if they sold a lot of coupes ?
The reason I'm asking, I'm thinking of waiting a bit after they come out, too see them and also to see if I can get a great deal, some people say to wait till almost winter, ya get your best deals then (?).
Thx for any help.

I think your asking how many "Coupes" a dealer has to sell before they get any 'verts? Well the dealers allocation is based not only on Coupe sales but also Mustang "vert sales in the area and Overall 'vert sales in your area. ie... Texas is the largest volume 'Vert sales in the union, Texas is the largest volume Camaro state in the union, and Texas is the largest volume mustang 'vert sales in the union, so Texas will receive the largest allocations... Now exactly how many is still being calculated. but initial #'s look to be about 1/3 or 1/2 of the dealers initial coupe allocation... I hope you are confused now... because I think that's what GM wants

Eric,
I couldn't be happier that you nixxed that Diamond White (if it happens) for your car. I like what Pony's telling you, stay away from those garbage vinyl stripes and go with paint with a nice clear (2-3 coats minimum, you won't regret it.)

Did you watch that Ultimate Factories? If so, all the more reason to toss some clear (pearl or otherwise) on your car, save you tons of grief especially if you're planning to hang onto the car and not dump it once you can get the Z28

With the 'vert showcasing the interior will be a big deal, hopefully GM is thinking along these lines with panels and interior options, but since time's running out, I think you're safe with the direction you want to head.

Tib

"Hack, cough", oh the misery of a bad bug .
SS-Eric: thx for your response, yea that's what I've though, didn't know a bought the Mustang verts, I thought/figured it would be Corvette verts tho (?)...., yea way confused "!" , way to go GM !, is it possible that if a dealer sales 15-20 coupes, they'll get 2-3 verts ?
I talked to Camaro Scotty, he tells me your the best shot/closest dealer to me, for me to get the vert I want, specially if my dealer doesn't get many or any at all, I was going to put a down payment, but I've preferred to wait now, to have more money as a down payment, and get the best deal possible !, plus I need to get my financial respectability's to be at its greatest/best to get what I want.

If I weren't in the business - I'd buy from him!

You can always put a SMALL DP down, and ADD to it while the car is in process, and still have a GREAT PLACE in the waiting game!

Thx Camaro Scotty,
I'll keep that in mind, I'll take that to heart too, for I have heard your one of the best in the business (!), you come highly recommended, that's the reason I spoke with you the other day !
SS-Eric; you have some great friend's here (PONY & Camaro Scotty) they speak highly of you !, I am for one am glad I've gotten the chance to talked to the both of you and hope to possibly buy my vert from, but I need to be better suited to make the commitment, hence the reason to get my financial responsibility's in order, when I place my order/buying !, witch I'm trying to do...., so I'll try to keep tabs on this as I never know what happens from one day to the next.... & hope that's okay ?

Hotrodhoodrat,

From a consumer standpoint, while I've not received my 'vert from Eric yet (obviously) Scotty sent me to him rather than just snagging another sale for himself, which speaks well for both of them. Only downside is you don't get Scotty's secret gift pack he gives to his own Camaro sales. Eric.....hmmm how about a little Rudy's BBQ and some good old fashioned Texas swag for your own kit?

Mmmmmmm Rudys.....
