This is not correct. GM stated that all dealer estimated shipments would be produced by the third quarter. Sold orders are controled by the dealer and if a sold order is for an SS and you are not allocated an SS, it won't be built. They are building V6's folks, we just have to accept that.

Way to go GM!

Yes. This means all discounts offered by GM will be available from day 1. Now I just wish we had final pricing for the supp/mil/grad discounts.

Guys, you have to keep in mind, that even with the push back, you might still have not had your car by these timeframes. Constraints on anything and just simply the build-outs could have kept that from happening. Scotty's own post here says that All pre-solds to be out by Oct. It shouldn't take so long to produce 10,000 cars, but when you mix that with all of the other cars for the dealers and such, they are spreading it out. I don't necessarily like it, but hopefully, that just means the weather will be that much better when it arrives.

Another point GM made was that the dealers are the one who need to control "sold orders" not GM. If they would not have made this fictional pre-order program, then there would not be a lot of mis-information. I can put in 100 pre-orders and it means nothing if you don't have allocation.

Why would you have to wait until the end of the year for a V8 from a small dealership if is allocated? I don't understand this. Allocations are smaller at small dealerships but still proportionate and it is in the allocation, so why such a long wait for small dealership allocated V8's?

Where have you been, ABT? Playing in the sandbox or something?

Sorry, just a little joke we have in the Guard when people get back... Come home safe!

And yes, GM offers a military discount. Two seconds and I'll get you a link to where to sign up for it.

That is why I ordered it on the first day of ordering.........Have to wait and see what they say or do next ......This car is not a need for me but a want.....

"Check"....your move GM...still waiting. But can wait much longer.
Exactly what I'm thinking. There may be a few of us snow country guys looking at it that way. And for 2011 there is supposed to be a 3.73 rear gear and a convertible. Hmm...HUD will be out by then too and who knows what changes might be made in drivetrain options or upgrades.

so... if I don't pre-order and only order once I have a reasonable down payment (which would be around april/may) I won't get a car (in my case most likely a 2LT/RS) until months later or what's this all about? if that's the case then unfortunately there will be no camaro for me

so i guess i really have to look into something else. hello hyundai genesis coupe. or something.

They say their research shows that most Camaro buyers are more concerned with style and appearance rather than performance. The enthusiast buyer only makes up 1/3 of the market. I say BS! The Camaro is the iconic American Muscle Car, not some ricer. Come on GM, build what the people want!

They should fire who ever did there marketing research for camaro and what preorders would be......I am going to run to the dealership and pre order a malubu (v6)..I know it is not the same I am just saying.......

this is the classic muscle car...of course we want performance.........granted this car is making a comeback...but they really dropped the ball.....I have waited 3 years what is another year if at all........If Gm wants to build V6's then build them and ship them for inventory...they can be put right next to the Impalas....

Yeah i think its bs that they cant build that many SS's. If thats what they got on order is a straight sale why wouldnt they make it. Make them in order the were ordered no matter if its a ls lt or ss. There just gonna make to many v6's and sit on the lots. Instead of being out with us V8 lovers.

A small dealer may not even receive a V8 allocation in 2009. If you saw the IDL broadcast, you would see that GM's focus is solely the V6 cars.
