Hey Scotty, were you hinting at this?

Okay, just got back from my dealer. He showed me an e-mail dated TODAY that orders all currently built cars to be shipped to dealers, NOW. As in yesterday.

He said that for some reason, a lot of shipments were going to be held until May, but the first order from the new CEO was to ship all built cars NOW.

He also said that the reason V6s were on constraint was because of the engine (sharing it with CTS or something or other) but they're being built, just not as quickly as SSs are right now. But he said clearing out that huge lot full of SSs should help expedite some LT building.

That is all. And yes, my dealer is an idiot.

Fbodfather stated flat out that was untrue last week. That was good enough for me.

If I ordered after production started am I still considered a pre-order? If not does that mean the car won't get here until after October?

Hey, I'm just going off what he said. He said there was supposed to be some big "Launch Event" in May but that's history. If a car is built, it's shipped. So all those pics of hundreds of SSs in the Oshawa lot? Finito. They'll be shipped as built.

According to the e-mail he showed me, that is.

No, you are not considered a pre-order. Depending FULLY on how many cars your dealer is getting (which he DOES know) and where you are in HIS line will tell you when you can expect yours.

That's really interesting. No May 6th launch (nationwide unveiling) anymore? I actually thought that was a great idea....

I'm sure there will be a launch, just cars will not be held back to be sold on that day. They're shipping cars out NOW to pre-orderers. No car will be held for a specific date.

I hope the good news is that they're starting to ramp up their LT production. I hate thinking about waiting weeks after SS orderers get their cars...

Since I ordered mine last week that means I'll get mine before someone can just walk up to the dealership and buy one right?

I saw an email about Car Covers that was sent to dealers that recommend they use them to cover their show car until the National Launch day that was supposed to be May 6. Personally I thought it would be foolish for a dealer to keep the car wrapped up...but I am not a dealer so can't speak to whether or not that would be sound marketing. The point is that May 6th was referenced as the National Launch day.

Most likely but your dealer could already have ordered stock cars over the past month if he wanted to. If he did, they are already in the system and would come in before yours. Like I said, you have to know what number you are in HIS line, how many he's getting total, and what's in front of you already.

For example, if he's getting 25 and you're number 12, you'll most likely have yours by June. JMO.

The way I understood it, the dealer wasn't supposed to order a custom one for themselves. My dealer did and was the one in front of me. Theirs is VIN# 459 and I'm waiting. I'm getting more antsy everyday until I get my Camaro cause of all the green and cutback more, talk.

Did I jack the thread?

Sorry.

I'm sure May 6th is still the official launch day. The e-mail simply stated that no more pre-ordered cars will be held in the lot for any reason. If a pre-ordered car is built, it is to be shipped IMMEDIATELY. That was the gist of the e-mail.

Within the next 2 weeks, you WILL be seeing Camaro SSs on the streets.

Sorry, but the guy who sent the email to your dealer is AN IDIOT!

The decision to ship was made last week when Wagner still had his job. The truckers were schedualled LAST week. The lot boys were schedualled LAST week. And cars were not being held for sale AFTER May 6th.
