I have to admit that when I first heard the very exaggerated news of the V8 not coming out until 2014, I thought about test driving a 370Z. Now I feel dirty. Like I need to go take a shower type of dirty...

Wow ...my eyes are blurring and running! Got to page 29 and BAM !!!! it was closed off.

I am not upset about a 30 day reset. I am not the least bit surprised that dealers are going to get a showroom model before all the v8's are made.

NO where has GM called this a muscle car. This car was built to compete with imports that are not V8'S. That all was in place well before the events of this fall. GM's survival is directly related to how well this car competes with Honda, Toyota and some from the other ocean.

Too many clods on here with me! me !me !. Think a few years ahead, without those 6's there may be no CAMARO ..so where do you get affordable replacement/service parts?

I totally disagree with a comment made 15 pages back. "Demand does not dictate supply"
You will I believe actually see that supply will dictate demand.

Those 30 % of dealers who did not place preorders should be shipped all v6 only until the back orders from the preorders are filled.

The IDL was done by some rank amateurs....TO BAD all this bad press on the eve of THE auto show.

I am buying this car because I will replace a Honda Coupe . Finally Chevy will make a car with a stick with some style. (This is not a 99 Grand AM .. WE BUILD EXCITEMENT!)
If everyone wants GM to prosper you better hope more like me want to replace a Honda.The brand will not survive with the only the support of the " V8 enthusiasts"

[QUOTE=fbodfather;240748]....

Thoughts:

1. The one month delay is to bring you the BEST POSSIBLE Camaro ever....Let me assure you that the 'easy' thing to do would be to build the car -- get your money -- and then have you bring the cars back for 'little dissatisfiers' -- which, in reality would be upsetting to most people that they had to take a new car back for service -- .......and we are NOT willing to do that. The Camaro team feels that we need to sweat every detail on this car so that you will be completely satisfied at delivery - but MORE importantly -- you'll still have that grin on your face years after delivery.

thank you Mr. fbodfather for addressing the nation . Now my question is what are these 'little dissatisfiers' that caused the delay?

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.
