Talked to Dave at J & N and it sounded like they've reduced there markup to around 2-4 K per car. they have a Black/Black 2SS that they let us take a look at on thursday (no test drive, just got to sit in it.). Also how long are people waiting on the waitlist for servco? Ive been on since Mid May and was just curious

Hey Baron,

When I talked to Mike he was perplexed to say the least about your order. I assume it is your order because he mentioned the initial 6 from last year and I thought it was you. Anyway, Mike is a stand-up guy from what I've experienced so far and I don't think he's doing anything to slow down your order or anything like that. The good thing is that we have our orders in, regardless of when they come in we know ours are somewhere along the way to being done.

I hope that you'll get a call from Mike really soon, or you find that your Camaro is on it's way to the island. I personally don't mind the wait, because I'd like to put as much down as possible so I can have a relatively low payment so I can upgrade the exhaust and headers.

I didn't really know what to say as Mike began to ask me about the specifics of my soon to be Camaro. 1SS, manual transmission, black inside and out, 20" polished wheels...it all came out so strangely as I were dreaming, but in the end I wasn't dreaming.

I went down earlier today and left my deposit for my Gen5 Camaro. Having been on the waitlist since April 2nd I've had to be patient until now, but looking back it doesn't really seem like it's been that long (Jeri, you're a saint for putting up with me talking about it and taking pictures of it in showrooms). Thanks Mike G for all that you've done for all of us at Servco Leeward. Keep up the good work!
just WOW!

Sad thing is looks like Im getting screwed over. I saw Mike G on March 25 and was told Id be put on the waiting list. You are on the waiting list after me and yet you can place an order? ahh crap this sucks! Need to go see him tomorrow!

Wow, something is wrong. If I am correct, you had the first pre-order at Leeward Servco and ordered from Mike Gomez. Am I correct? Yours should have been the first one on the island! Looks like the first pre-order from both Leeward and Windward are the last pre-orders to come in. Mines floating out there somewhere!

Was wondering if there are alot of blindspots like it was reported earlier?

I might take up the option of adding the sensors (front back bumper sensors). I noticed both the black and the yellow camaro is missing alot of paint on the front of the car, probably hitting a curb or something.

When I sat in my car it was like i was sitting kinda low, but i did'nt ajust the seat, i was playing with radio, that radio looks like it would take some time to learn all the features. I'm getting sick waiting for it to get here to Maui.

Did a quick breakdown of Hawaii Maros from Spastic as of today... For review and comments:
Dealer Listed R6P
Cutter 14 9
Jim Falk 5 1
JN 8 0
Kuhio 3 1
Servco 8 4
TOTAL: 38

Wonder if numbers will climb with all R6P first...

I think mine is taking longer because it wasnt tagged R6P when I preordered on opening day. It was a new process and I think they didnt realize that it needed to be tagged that way.

Anyways, about 10am driving down to Pearl Harbor, I saw a Silver Ice Metallic Camaro pass me with the packing stuff and sticker still attached. It was heading towards JN Chevy dealership. They must have gotten another bulk of camaros in. At this rate, they will need to drop the price or they will end up with alot of camaros sitting on thier lot taking up space.

I will get some interior pics as soon as I take them. I've just been so captured by the beauty of the exterior. Changing lanes to the right isn't bad at all. I end up looking out the rear window and using the side mirror to give me a good picture of what's to my right. Out the left is a bit harder due to the small rear window. But if you know how to drive then you should be fine judging your surroundings.

I tried to get the pictures to line up as best as possible starting from the view straight out and going around clockwise. The view from within the car isn't all that bad. I already got use to the view out the windows. Looking across the hood isn't as bad as it looks in the picture. All you really have to do is move your head to view any cars coming up to an intersection. Sounds hard, but not too difficult for the pros.

The trunk is high so the view out the back is a little hard to see if someone is tailgating you. Just don't make any sudden stops. It might also be that I'm a kinda short, 5'7", so I have problems seeing over things.

The hips on this car are really nice and big. The only problem I'm having with this is parking against a curb. But I should have it down within a week or two. It's just a matter of knowing your surroundings and judging the passenger side.

The only complaint I have, which is very minor, is the dead pedal. I'm used to driving a '97 Accord which has a dead pedal that is raised to about the same level as the clutch. The dead pedal in the Camaro is kind of just a slightly raised bump. My foot gets a little tired because of the angle it sits at when I'm not shifting.

Just to let everybody know, the skip shift kicks in at 17 MPH on a slow acceleration. It is really not a problem at all. It only confused me a couple times. Usually when I'm in a turn following some jackass that doesn't know how to drive.

The car attracts a lot of attention from a lot of different people. I really don't mind talking to people about him. I had a guy that owns some kind of steak wagon or something. He offered to trade me some meat for my Camaro LOL. But one thing that's getting annoying are those stupid young kids in their little ricers. I keep getting rev'd at and it's just ridiculous because their car sound like a fan blowing into a rusted coffee can filled with broken keys.

Nice. Thanks for the pictures. I figured there would be alot of young kids wanting to show off and reving their engines. Probably going to happen quite often until there are alot of camaros on the road as well as people wanting to see what the new camaro looks like. You probably are coming out of a store shopping and finding alot of finger smudges on the windows from people trying to take a peek inside to see what it looks like.

I cant believe that yesterday was the first time I actually saw a new camaro on the roads. I thought maybe it was mine since it was the same color, but this one didnt have the rally striping.

Nash, do you live on Winam in Kapahulu, My dad's house is on McCorriston st, and my brother lives right down the road from you. Small world.

Hmm... Small world. Actually my girlfriend lives in that area. I just realized I got Diamond Head in the background of one of the pictures. Great landmark. I used to live in the area, but moved a few years back. I usually hang out at my girlfriends.

Good question. I think it varies. Some cars are moving faster than others. I was at 3800 on 25 June and my car just now made it on island.

Mike, that sounds about right. My car made it to 3800 on May 22. It didn't get here until about 2 weeks ago. So mine took roughly 1 1/2 months to get here.

yup first one.... i ordered a stick (autos had no issues) and my car was picked for QC (quality control) and i think its 1 of 12 cars still held over for some issues.... due out within a couple of weeks.... it may be out any day now but really hard to get exact info on it.... i guess I'm the "lucky" one....

if i ordered an auto it would have been the first one here..... i do have a low VIN 9585

Wow, I liked the red that you bought! I think they mentioned that the plates are in and they are setting up transport via Young Brothers this week. They were saying that alot of people wanted to buy the camaro after they saw them.

I dont know if you heard, but the V6 camaro at Leeward Servco was sold to JN Chevy and they sold it a week later with a large markup. They have already been trying to purchase the Yellow V6 at Windward, but they wont sell it to JN. JN must be making a killing buying the ones on island and reselling them at a high markup.

By the way, the seat does adjust to raise it higher for folks who are a little bit on the shorter size. My girlfriend in 5 foot 2 inches and she can see fine after raising the seat.

Its kinda interesting is that I have more blindspots in my BMW X5 than I do in the camaro.

Only thing I had to get used to is the large rear view mirror. I cuts out alot of the front window view. After a while, you get used to it.
