I was told by my dealer that there were no constraints at the start of production. I am not CamaroScotty, but that is what I heard.

I hope there is a constraint...this gives me 2 more months to save up for my down payment.

Definitely need to find out the scoop from a reliable source, that's for sure, because choosing the right color for you is critical if not the most important decision to be made about the car. Whatever the case may be, don't let a time delay make your decision on color. If you do, you'll regret it later. If CGM is the color that makes the hair on the back of your neck stand up, then stick with it and see what happens. It is very possible that your dealer is wrong (SHOCK!)

as no official constraints have been issued yet, and as orders won't be pulled untill after constraints are issued - calm down. In all likelihood your dealer is an idiot, but let's wait and be certain.

So it's "awaiting validation" which to me means that it should be good to go. Basically the situation is that they're building Impalas in a different gray color. Closer to production start, or on production start, they'll swap the paint buckets so the robots can spray CGM. So barring something ridiculous, CGM should be available on car 001 (if that's what Mr. Hendrick wants). This isn't something complicated (like ABL apparently is).

Stick with your color choice. IT's only a month or so wait IF they are right about what they told you. You will have to live with a color that was your second choice the rest of the time you have the car. Make sure there are no regrets. You waited this long, you can wait a couple more months for that PERFECT car for you.

According to fbodfather there are no constraints on the CGM. They're just waiting to finish off the paint currently in use by the impalas.

Consensus is monthly but the constraints are updated weekly. Not sure if they'll continue to update the Camaro constraints though.

It will be an impala color, and I'm THINKING they are eliminating the stealth gray currently used on the impala, so it can be used on both cars.. I wouldn't be concerned yet.

so how many gallons of stealth gray are left or is the supply going to last till the end of the year. And what is this awaiting validation I thought that the CGM was approved, does Obama have to sign, j/k

Here's the link to the post I put up. . . I thought I understood what he said at the show. .

Scott: . . . . . .. Well, it depends on what color you ordered. . . Since we shut down the plant for a while it we didn't get to use up all the Gray for the Impala's. This will delay the CGM Camaro. Not as bad as the White, June or July.

My heart broke. . . I have to wait longer for my Camaro now. :(

Regular production starts March 16th -- I will double check with Cheryl to find out when we'll start building CGM.......it very well may be by March 16th...

(I know this: it's one of the more popular colors in terms of 'sold' orders...)

GUESS I WAS RIGHT IN THE FIRST PLACE.

I wonder why the V6 models are listed, does it mean that only SS models will be built first?

I think the v6's will be under constraint and not available for order at first because all of the v6's being built will be sent as floor models to all of the dealers and not built for customer orders.
