Spotted on car carrier

We spotted a nu car carrier pulling out of a holding yard in West Seneca, NY (Buffalo suburb) with 5 orange camaros on it, could not tell if reg or ss but was getting on the 400 at union(joins the 90 east and west not to far down the thruway). I have no idea of their route. No I did not have a camera plus I was driving. It was hopefully a bunch of dealer show room cars.

Ignore those you saw on the truck. Those are mine. I told them to cover them but I see they didn't.

Not picking on you...but are you sure those weren't Challengers?

You'd be more likely to find 5 orange Challengers on a car carrier than you would 5 Camaros. Besides, I thought they were planning on having all the dealer showroom cars be Silver Ice Metallic since that was what everyone was used to seeing on the concept Camaro.

I ordered one I know what they look like. I wish we still had daryl in the oshawa plant sending in info with out being deleted he would have some input on this. The train yard for car drop off (for western new york)out of canada is about 5 minutes from my house and the car carrier yard is about 8 minutes away. I will take a ride over to both on tuesday and see what I see, yes I will have a camera. I used to do work for the car carrier company I will have to look up my contacts name again to get in the yard. As for the train yard my brother in law is an engineer in the buffalo area and I think his company services those tracks. I have no reason to blow smoke and nobody on this site really knows what gm is thinking or doing for sure, not even our trusted sales people really know the whole truth. If gm wants to do a grand unvailing they will have to get cars to dealers and I really don't think they will use enclosed trucks 2 or 3 at a time when they can do 7-10 on a nu car carrier. Its close to media day and cars need to get moved into positions.

Possibly cars coming from Oshawa to Warren Tech Center for CTF duty. Not sure why they would do the border crossing in Buffalo instead of Detroit/Windsor or even Port Huron. But maybe the crossing is faster there. Doubt very much they are going to dealers unless it for some type of training, which is possible.

Show cars are usually transported by Reliable under cover, which is how irpq11's cars will be shipped I'm sure.

But alllll speculation without pics.

I think living that close you should be on a stakeout (don't forget the camera)

That truck must have been looking for Gillogly Chevy. That dealer is just a few blocks away from there. Maybe they got lost?

I would agree they were probably Challengers...I see them on that route quite a bit and always do a double take thinking they may be Camaros? Belive it or not when you see them quickly on the highway it is easy to make the mistake I have seen several trucks full of orange challengers too.

Doubt they were heading from Oshawa via Buffalo...Way too far out of the way! Detroit or Port Huron for sure...I have passed a Camaro crossing at Port Huron though.

You need a good camera and lense. If I was that close I would be on stake-out trying to get all the pictures I could.

Probably extras to blow up from Bumblebee stunts? Like how they used to smash up tons of Challengers for the Duke Brothers.

401 goes straight from Oshawa to Detroit in ~4 1/2 hours. Making a detour to Buffalo would take 8. Its highly doubtful that it would take 3 1/2 hours to cross the border

I doubt a Camaro enthusiast would mistake a challenger for a camaro. Have you seen how big those things look even on a trailer. I have seen semis coming on the other side of the highway and my entire family would easily note that there were challengers, even my girlfriend can tell the difference and shes not that into cars. Cut the guy a break, we tend to think people lie soo much that we miss out on oppurtunities. This thread monthes ago could be seen as mistaking them for Challys, but at this time, there is a greater chance of it being true.
