1 month delay

Just putting this out there.

When I went to my dealer yesterday to change my color (From IOM to CGM)
we were BSing about stuff and he told me that the reason for the 1 month delay is cause the guys that make seats went bankrupt and that all their stuff, including GM's tools were locked up inside by the sherrif's dept.

Don't know how much of that is BS factor or not, just thought I'd put out what I heard

Thats is an interesting combo of runmrs, news stories, and half truths.

1. The company (Johnson Controls) that builds the seats and door panels hes had some major losses and shut down some of its plants, however it will still be building the seats, no dealy here.

2. The company (Cadence) who builds the Gauge clusters has gone bankrupt and his holding the tools and dies for the gauges for ransom due to non payment by GM. GM has been hush hush on settling this, however they did say that this is NOT the cause of the delay.

No Sheriff involvement!

I just heard on the news that Pirelli is going out of business and there will be no tires for our Camaros. The cars will be built, but they won't be able to roll out of the plant.
































Just kidding. Get off the ceiling Rodrunner.

Order Status Website

Someone should start a website that would allow us to enter our order number and get our order status.

Who would be able to do this? I imagine we would all be extremely grateful.

I don't think GM will do it but they will leave it up to the dealers to let us know. If you got your Camaro from a dealer I don't think he/she should/would have any problem with you picking up the phone and letting you know where you are if they even know at this time.

I work for a company where we have done that. We could get machines out of the plant and onto trucks but then they took the wheels and tires off. Some were lucky, in that we would send rims but no tires, and getting it off the truck was your problem

Buying a classic Camaro is a great fall back plan. I'm considering that too.

Also, I thought it was already official from GM that the new Camaro will not start production until March instead of February? What is this March 16th talk? Seems like if production starts in March delivery won't happen until April???

Just a question. Once they start production, March 16th, roughly how long until the first cars that are produced will start arriving at dealerships?

Yes, I was in the sandbox. It was fun, but remind me not to eat a sandwich in there again...it was crunchy.

GM must go back to Congress by February 17th with a full progress report detailing how it is fairing in reducing its current $28 billion in debt.

Hold on, so if yours is an alotted car, and you could possibly get it in June or July, would it make sense that mine which was first to be ordered but technically 3rd, and a v6, can come in May? I need it before the 25th, well i would love to bring it to the AfterProm at the beach!!!
