I think if they told us it was some subcontractor who couldn't get them parts in time, we would have a riot at that company's steps tomorrow morning

Thanks for letting us know what is going on. It is an honor and a blessing to have you be a part of this wonderful community. Anyways, who's going to keep Ms. Fink happy around here with new inside information that only the big cheese can deliver.. Ohh..before I forget...Please quit teasing us about Cyber Grey.. I still have a few more weeks to change the color in the order and I really would like to see the color before it is too late.. The photoshops don't do the color justice and seeing it on the corvette makes it hard to imagine on the Camaro..

Just make a cyber grey SS or V6 with the orange IOM interior and we'll all be happy here..

Even though there's no delay in the V8s, it will still take a little bit of time to build all the ordered V8s and ship them out - with about 8,000 to 9,000 V8s ordered so far, October doesn't seem to be too far out of the realm of possibility for having all of them completed and delivered.

I think Scott was trying to quell the talk of "30% of V8s being pushed back till next year."

I've ordered a car before, it takes time for a normal production vehicle to be special ordered, not to mention a first run of a car.

There are no such thing as an "unchangeable" everything is subject to change.
But you see, you don't understand that we live in the age of "instant gratification" these days, simply push a button and it's all done, no effort on anyone's part!! I've waited and been through new product launches in a lot of different product areas, from cars to music synthesizers to digital cameras, etc. and I can tell you I have never seen as much information up front as Chevy has provided on the new Camaro. My experience with new product launches suggests that usually product arrives after your earliest "wish date", but follows soon afterward. I did get lucky on a music synthesizer launch a few years ago and mine was in the first batch air freighted here from Japan rather than having to wait for the normal cargo container shipments via ship. Everyone take a deep breath and have a little patience, Camaros will start showing up at dealers before too long.

Thanks scott for settling some of the worries. I don't mind the delay at all. Gives me a little more time to get the 69 back together and out of the New Camaros parking spot.

I saw where it gave the numbers for the rear end gears. Do all the V8's now get the 3.45 rear end? I'm getting an SS automatic, and would much rather have the lower 3.45's over the 3.27's, but always thought the auto's were getting the higher gears. If anyone knows for sure, please chime in. Thanks....

Scott, will you be at the St. Lousi auto show at the end of January? If so, got anything planned for it. Will you let a lonely St. Louisin sit in the roped off car

P.S. Thank you for the info. I do feel better about the wait.

Thanks

Scott or Camaro Scott

With the workbench # I got for my 2SS and the letter I got from GM with Ed thanking me for ordering a car. Do I need to do anything else? Does GM know that order is placed with my specs for my car? And I will get that car some time this year?

My worry is I don't know if I really have an order placed that GM knows about, I think I do since I got a letter, but who knows?

Thanks

Scott

I have been thinking about upgrading from the 2LT I have pre-ordered and getting an SS. By the way it sounds, the first batch off the line are V6's for dealers so theoretically I could count of 45-60 days before ANY of the pre-orders are built, correct; more time to save up more cash?

Related, since the SS is a performance car replacement parts would be more expensive as well? Brakes, rotors, etc., normal stuff that wears out over time?

Scott, Thanks for all the "positive" info. I can only hope my white SS Camaro gets built later this year as promised. My dealer called me yesterday and advised white is still on the drawing board.

Scott - You are the man! And a very classy one at that. Thanks for the information, and please continue to have patience with those of us that "want it now" and raise a stink when someone says no.

The quality is worth the wait, and I like the HP increase. I need to do the math to see how many 1-month waits it will take to get to 500HP!

Thanks Again - Long Live Camaro!

Plus 1, I am dying to see, touch, sit in this car. I will go to car show, but I really hope it's not like last year where you couldn't touch it. But, 8 year old punks with melting hershey bars could jump from one seat, across the shifter, into the other seat of $80k corvettes.

Took me 3 months for build and delivery for my 97 silverado LTZ. It takes time to get a product perfect and built and shipped out where YOU will be over satisfied with the end product and have next to nothing to gripe over.

The delay is a kick in the pants, which is the main reason i decided not to order a new camaro during the model launch. Not because i knew about upcoming delays, but because on expeirience firsthand, i knew problems would arise along with possible delays.

I did however break my rule when i ordered my new silverado, that vehicle though i just HAD to have. And after enjoying ti so much, i am up in the air about ordering a new camaro. I dont like the idea of monthly payments when the car sits over winter, and where i am , i get tons of snow. My truck with the summer 20's on it right now , i can go anywhere and everywhere with alot of cargo space. And i still have my 80Z which will eat a 5th gen all day long, it will just use more gas lol

I wonder why Dodge and Ford don't have problems with producing their V8 Mustangs and Challengers on time?

Because the Mustangs and Challangers are built on pre-exisiting platforms.

Camaro is built on a brand new Zeta 2 platform.
