I've seen other rumors of this also. Nothing official yet though.

Well, my dealer mentioned something about it and that they got an email on it, but they can't find the email. I swear. How damn hard is it to keep track of shit?

Anyway, he told me he thought it was going to be May 5th. Then, last weekend, another dealer posted this on a Corvette Forum for an event to be on May 2nd, tentatively.

http://www.hendrickdurhamautomall.com/car-show.aspx

Camaro & Corvette Car Show
Sponsored by Hendrick Durham Auto Mall

Tentative Date: May 2nd, 2009

* Bring your Corvette or Camaro to show off to the RTP area! FREE REGISTRATION!
* Free food for all attending!
* Test drive the BRAND NEW 2010 Chevrolet Camaro!

For more information, please contact Roger Hinton by email (roderick.hinton@hendrickauto.com).

So, who knows for sure. I'm sure it will be on the Official Camaro Website the day after it happens. No, wait, they'd have to actually update the site for them to say anything about it, right?

I don't mean to start another negative spin on a thread, but c'mon GM/Chevrolet. You've taken our Hurst away on the early guys, most of the LPOs aren't gonna be available for God knows how long and you changed up the ABL on us. Although, I understand from the CZ28.com podcast that it was relayed that the way they had it layed out was a distraction while driving, so I'll give you that one. But why can't we get a simple website update from last October? MOWE has come and gone, you've got 12, 13, 14000 pre-orders (don't really know because nothing is updated) and we can't get a simple website update.

If I didn't know better and found that site, I would think I would have to wait til this October to place an order..........and they wonder why the Mustang outsells them?

I can open a MotorTrend site and see 4 splash ads in the same page, but you can't get the site you own updated? I want that job. They haven't done anything since October. If they are still around that is.

Sorry for the rant...........continue your thread.

There is suppose to be some kind of promotion in May. That is why all the dealers are getting at least 1 V6 car to have on display. From what I understand that we have to hold on to it till then, but can sell it after that.

Go to search, put in May 6th, then select to search post (not threads). I just did it and found it, maybe that will help.

It's probably when all the dealers will have their V6's on display.

http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showth...566#post302566 ... see post# 4 and #6

I remember someone said that the dealerships are going to hide the showroom V6 and their first V8 until a May 6 release party thingy... I blew it off as either another idiot dealer or maybe a local thing...

but now.... I am starting to wonder.

So everyone that it getting all excited about their "3400" status is wasting their time?

They are going to hold on to the cars until May 6?

My dealer just mentioned the launch day to me this morning. Not any details, just that Chevy is going to launch a large ad campaign and local dealer incentives to lure people in to purchase the Camaro.

I would much rather have someone DRIVING the dealership car, instead of having a PARTY in it.....but that's just me - oh yes, we will unload it!

It does not make good business sense to hold preordered cars until a "Launch day". It is better to have the cars sold and out on the streets and invite the new owners to the dealer for the big show. Nothing sells a car better than a happy owner at the dealership.
