Angry WHATS THE HOLD UP!!!

does anybody have a reasonable idea why these cars are taking so long to ship. i am growing very impatient as i have more than 10k in aftermarket parts waiting and an empty hoist. Why is this shipping having so many issues?
it has been over 3 weeks for me since build. That is at BEST, unacceptable.

well CaptianSam... the cars ship from eastern Canada... it takes a while to get to the north west. Took mine 7 days to go 400 miles.

I'd chill out. You will get it soon. Go play with one of you other 8 cars while you wait.

I'm 40 minutes from oshawa, where they are produced.

I have never needed to simultaneously wait for multiple parts for multiple vehicles, I desperatly need the Camaro before my brother takes the Viper to
St. Louis, for his re-sign with the Blues.

Sorta "friendly" competition, all the Mopars in my sig are his.

No disrespect, but if you wanted a Camaro now, you should have bought one off the lot.

There are a lot of things that could be holding up your car for shipment. It could have been pulled for quality control inspections, waiting for other vehicles to be shipped to the same region as you, or there is the slight possibility that your vehicle was damaged during shipment and is under repair.

My only suggestion is to contact your dealership and talk to them.

stock HUD was a feature i really appreciated after driving the z06 around Cayuga.

Been thinking about 67 SS RS floor shift 350 with a 396 drop in all original car minus the passenger seat and door. Even the stock vaccuum for the headlights!!!

sadly, gm isnt going to say why theres a hold up..they want to keep that kind of info on the down low, and just in sure that the customer is getting a product that will be trouble free (in most cases).

If you are that close to the factory, it will be shipped by truck so no rail delay. Mine was built 15/8 and delivered to the dealer 16/8 but I'm only 5 min from the factory. Mine could have used a bit of QC time, bunch of little things that need looking at.

Mine was built on 7/19 and is still in Canada. I think I am beating everyone. Quality control hold. Nothing we can do.

Just a paranoid thought. Maybe GM is slowing there arrival down to move out the 2011 in stock at dealers. You know the old supply and demand. My area is loaded with Red ones.

Hey Captian,

Mine was order on November 21, 2008, built on April 12, 2009 and I didn't get it from the dealership until June 16, 2009. It was stuck in QC, fondly remember and referred to at the time as AREA 51.

Hang in there, it shouldn't be too much longer

I remember those early days.

Hang in there, it'll come and you'll forget about the wait time!

Your brother and his Viper are welcome in St. Louis. Go Blues!

I'm also waiting...somewhat patiently. I ordered a 2012 SS/RS Convertible with the inferno orange seats, and they're not available right now. So I have no idea when I'll get mine, but I'm keeping watch thanks to Becky and her status forum.

Oh, and you asked about exhaust. I have the Corsa cat back for the L99. It was $1200 and about $140 for installation at one of my neighborhood garages. It works exactly as they advertise. No (or little) interior sound. It all comes out the back. I love using the remote start just so I can hear it. Put the windows down and accellerate heavily and you'll hear the roar.

As for northwest in my tag, I have no idea as to what made me put that there.
I am located on the outskirts of toronto.

I ordered my 2012 camaro 2ss/Rs on June 17th, and I am still waiting. The dealership told me that the due date for the car was Aug 24th, and every time i called them they said it's on the way and they don't know when exactly the car will arrive. I called up the manufacture in Canada and I was told that the car has been ready, and ready to be shipped but they don't know when exactly it'll be shipped. The dealership originally told me it would take 6-8 weeks and now it has been 10.
