Dlr. has notice of his 1st two CAMARO build.

Dealer called today.

He got one hour's notice from ZONE office to confirm FINAL changes to his first two cars by 3.00 PM today.

He is getting 1 V6 (MINE) and 1 V8. Says Canada is all "manual" on this car.
I Removed the rally stripes and he sent me revised Work Bench as we spoke.

They have to sell these 2 before they get any more. He still has V8 allotment.Zone tells him to expect both at same time in mid April.

I found this Dealer on CAMARO5 ...

Does that mean he is giving you his non-alotment v-6 that all the dealers are getting first? or is he actually getting an additional 6cyl that is part of his initial allotment?

Can anyone else confirm this? Maybe this is just Canada? Maybe this is just your dealer? I'm just skeptical that there is only one dealer doing this, could just be jumping the gun.

These are two of his allotment. He says it is being done like his high end Vet's. Get 1 sell it ...you get your next one from allotment. This is his Feb consensus

Regional ZONE gave him only 1 hour to contact his customers for any changes.

Dealer is not pulling the trigger...zone office is. All zone orders have to be complete by Friday.

especially as it doenst match up with what we have been told about the ordering process from the dealers on here. we have been told the process really starts on thursday, is given the weekend to finalize orders, and then is drawn into the system.. I thought it was monday night or first thing tuesday morning.

Also we are 6 weeks from the start of production and the march consensus hasnt taken place yet. all sorts of stuff doesnt match... though i guess it is technically possible.

Definitely odd since the first consensus isn't announced until Friday. Need more input.

Welcome to Canada eh!

No one has ever said the dealers up here were going to be force fed a 6cyl.

That why they call it GM of Canada LTD.

What am I missing here? Chevy invoices the dealer. At that point the car is considered sold by Chevy. What do they care after that as long as they can invoice the dealer and the dealer pays for it?

We all keep hearing,"The dealer is the dealer and can do what they want. Chevy has no control over the dealer"...

This is just bizarre.

Looks like this isn't the only dealer in canada that got this, sounds like those to our north are having things move into high gear.

The initial allotment confirmation is supposed to be released this week for everyone so dealers in the US should know how many they will be getting initially by the end of this week.

I really do the honesty and good information guys like Team Lynn and Camaro Scotty have contributed over the months on here. We do have some dealers in this country that have a lower profile but have been doing there best to keep their customers informed.

Our distribution has never been identical to the system used in the USA.

So it is not bull ....it's just different. BUT THE CAR IS THE SAME!!!

Never said it was my friend. I'm talking about the whole "sell one to get another" fiasco. I've just never heard of anything like that.

Just like how in Canada you can't get an SS in Blue, the ordering and stuff is different as well.

Actually he is now an American. Other "X" Canadians - Paul Anka, Alanis Morisette, Steve Yzerman, Jim Carrey and the late Peter Jennings.

this isn't true... Camaro allotment is allocated to dealers based on three variables.

Corvette sales at the specific dealership
Mustang salesin the dealers selling area
and location in the major market areas (the bigger the city the greater chance of receiveing allotment)

Now this is not the exact order and each are weighted differently throughout Canada; but i said this earlier...every dealers knows how many Camaros they have been alloted for the first 6 months of production (and nothing any further than that).

We've just been told that 20% of our original 6 months allotment must be V6 and at this time they don't have to be the dealers first orders...they can be their last if they choose. Those dealers lucky enough to recieve allotment in this first month were able to tell the 'zone' which Camaro they wanted built first and if they got any more, which one they wanted built next.

There is no 'turn and earn'...meaning if you sell one you get another. GM of Canada has already figured out how many Camaros Canada is getting for the first 6 months and then have distributed that amount amongst its dealer body. They (being Gm of Canada)will then recieve the final 6 months of production allotment and distribute those back out accordingly to dealers...

further to this...be careful whenever you are talking to the 'sales people' at dealerships. being a dealer we try to curtail what our sales people say to get customers to purchase vehicles. nonetheless, some sales people will resort to the lowest common denominator and say whatever you think you want to hear in order to get your business.

if you have any concerns or questions about the order status of your camaro...or if you just want the correct information about ordering a camaro, i suggest you bypass the salesperson, request the sales managers time to ensure you're getting the correct details.
