Theory as to why we have not see a CMG.

Could it be because it will be the one auctioned off at Barrett-Jackson auction?

Just an idea I came up with last night; would it make sense to auction off the only color we have not seen yet to keep the excitement up?

What do you all think?

doubt it... what will be at BJ will be a test car to represent the car you will be able to choose to build... you'll get to pick the options and such, according to the information I was given.

So, in a way it might be CGM...

but not the reason we haven't seen one yet. Some of the plant insiders have said they are out there. We just haven't been lucky enought to get some pics yet.

Yup! The car's VIN will end in ...10001 and will be built on the 1st day of regular production.
The winning bidder will be able to spec out the car to his/her preferences and will be on the hook for taxes, title, registration and license fees.

All net proceeds will go to the American Heart Association.

Best regardSS,

Elie

Exactly what is a CMG. Sorry it's been bugging me. I'll shut up now.

Maybe they will have a couple of Camaros at the NAIAS, Hopefully there will be CGM and a IBM with Twin White stripes.

Riddle me this batman....everyone keeps saying the VIN will be 100001 but 100003 has already been made.

So did they just "skip" that VIN number so they could market it has the 1st? If so, all of the collectors will know that really 100002 or 100003 or whatever was produced prior and what they are buying is the VIN number and 1st "real" production day status.

Right?

Although completely unrelated to this thread, the cars that are being built now are not "production" cars. The one being auctioned off is the first production car. I don't know what the VINs are right now but I bet they're a bit different to signify that they're not production cars. The current ones you see are saleable but they will be retrofitted a bit to bring them up to final spec (if they find any issues before production starts) before being resold to people.

I was thinking that perhaps the captured test fleet vehicles were numbered 000001, 000002, etc. Or could they be produced as 2009 vehicles? But I remember somewhere on here that someone said those cars would have a home someday. It would be nice if HeatherR or Number3 could pipe in and tell us what VIN is on those cars they are driving.

I hope I don't get anyone in trouble for this but here is the vin from #3. I snapped this Tuesday morning. It is numbered 000003, so you may be on to something, as these are saleable but perhaps not regular production.

BTW, just doing a little VIN decoding to see what I could find out about this car. Here is what I have found so far. First of all, did I read that number correct? Is it 2G1FF1EV0A9000003?

2- Country - Canada
G - Manufacturer - General Motors
1 - Vehicle type or manufacturing division - Chevrolet
F - Identifies the restrain system - Chevy/GM specific code
F - Identifies the series - Camaro
1E - Identifies the body style - Chevy/GM specific code
V - Identifies the engine - Chevy/GM specific code
0 - Check digit to verify VIN accuracy
A - Identifies the model year - A = 2010
9 - Identifies the assembly plant for the vehicle - Oshawa #1
000003 - Identifies the sequence of the vehicle for production
as it rolled off the manufacturers assembly line. Starting with 100001.

EDIT: Just found some additional information and updated the above.

I don't see how anyone can get in trouble given that these cars are on the road and open for public viewing. If I seriously thought anyone could get in trouble I certainly would NOT have posted it.

It's not like it was taken within a factory or from 'dealer only' publications. I've waited over 20 years for GM to make a car that I felt was worth buying new and keeping for a long time and I would not do anything to jeapardize their hard work.

I know. I was just joking. Anyone could take pictures of the VINs of any of the show cars or ones cruising the streets (if they have one).

Could it be that these VINs are not registered as official production cars since they are captured vehicles? I would think that when these cars get sold, they would be more valuable than the 100001 model since they were really the first ones off the line (minus all the miles that Heather and Number3 put on them of course!). Any chance they change the VIN later? I would guess not since they are matched elsewhere on the car. Just throwing out some thoughts...
