News from my dealer...not sure how to interpret.

I received the following email from my dealer yesterday:

I received a call from our GM representative today stating we will be receiving our 6 preliminary orders, therefore, I feel that CONGRATS are in order. We have been told that GM will begin pulling through our sold orders as soon as next week, so please let me know if there are any changes you would like made to your orders. Now it is possible that they may not pull our orders through for another month, but we were told to take precautionary measures, just in case. For instance, if they pull YOUR order next week, we want to make sure it is built the way you have designed your NEW 2010 Camaro. Please feel free to contact me with any questions. Once again, we greatly appreciate the opportunity to earn your business and congratulations!
Ok...first, I don't want to incite a riot of speculation...I have read just about every thread related to orders/delays in production/etc...so hopefully we won't turn this thread into a slugfest.

The only thing that I'm 'interpreting' from this, is that GM reviewed all of my dealers sold orders and validated that they would all be accepted and built in the first allocation. Good news due to some speculation and fear mongering that if a dealer had all 'v8' sold orders for their initial allocation...they would not get them all because of a lopsided v6/v8 order mix.

I also believe it confirms that even though your 'first' in line at your dealer...your order might not actually be 'pulled' first. Not a big deal once you get confirmation that you order will be 'accepted' in the initial allocation.

I honestly feel fortunate to have chosen the dealer I did...

These next 5 months are going to be fun with everyone posting the status of their orders. My salesman is a little slow with information. He sent an email 2 days ago notifying me of the 1 month delay (IDL 1/9/09).
