Cancelling tomorrow

Frankly, I am sick of this junk from GM, and I really don't want to wait until fall to get a new car. You would think a company hurting for money would be trying as hard as they can to get a car like this out. I am a TA guy anyways so this was the last straw. Sickens me to think I am going to give GM my money for a vette. About the only way I will get a Camaro now is if the SS has numbers like 12.5 1/4 mile and 4.2ish 0-60.

You know what?

I give up. I was going to write a post about how GM is doing their best, but nobody's going to pay attention. Whatever.

Thank you for buying a Corvette. I'm sorry you couldn't get your Camaro sooner, but I'm tired of explaining things.

I was thinking of something to say to the OP to try to change his mind, but I come up with nothing that has not been stated already. Just please read TAG's stickied thread entitled "PLEASE READ..." at the top of this board if you haven't already.

good thing you kept it american.... i understand your pain alot of people ditched the challenger after the delays that the 08 guys had...but boy did the guys that waited get a great car and didnt even come back to the forum for at least a week lol. vettes are nice but when you see someone gawking over the new camaro instead of ur 50k vette you might regret it....either way good choice.

Nah I read everything before I posted, but there was just too much up in the air to wait around and hope anymore. I hate the fact that GM killed the Camaro/Firebird in the first place. Hate the fact there will never be a Firebird (according to GM), I mean is it really that hard to remake it? There will be just as much of a buzz for that car, if not more. I am pretty pissed that this car is no longer going to be a hatchback, and would miss my ttops to much.

I guarantee you in a year or two, they will bust out with options everyone wants now, will probably bring out the z/28, etc etc. Everyone will be screwed by GM and be pissed about it. With my luck in 2012 they will come out with a 45th anniversary Firebird, after I had already bought a camaro. I'm not taking the risk anymore. I can get a vette for the same price/insurance which will be faster, less weight, and hold its value longer.

Well, congrads on ur vette purchase...that's for sure.

I just hate to see you cancel and solid info from GM comes out in a couple days and your order goes to someone else. Good luck, though. I can sincerely understand where you are coming from.

The important part is that you bought a GM vehicle. I have never bought GM before in my life, but my next car for sure is going to be GM, you can believe that .

I respect your decision, but "good things come to those that wait."

Have fun with your new purchase.
