So, I checked today and apparently my car has switched from CSX to Union Pacific in Salem, Illinois. Using the Union Pacific tracking #, I have an arrival in San Antonio on Nov 24, (Thanksgiving) @ 8:43 a.m. Then, it has to get on a truck to come back North to my dealer.

And this is the year I actually live in Texas again I'm not going to my parents house in San Antonio for Thanksgiving.

Probably has to stop in Kansas City to drop off a few cars ....

Well this sucks. It's the 22nd today, my TPW of 11/14 which became 11/18 has come and gone. Becky was able to find out I have a temporary VIN, which I take to mean it may have started production. No idea what the hold up is. Man is this hard waiting.

As you know, you and I are in the same boat. I don't see how we could have pissed Chevy off so I wonder why we're getting the shaft I ordered a 2SS Convertible, Black Top, LS3, Hurst Short-Throw Shifter, Black Exterior, Inferno Orange Stripe Package, and Inferno Orange Interior Accent Package.

I'm wondering if you and I ordered similar items which might be holding up the build.

Becky didn't say anything about a temporary VIN to me and I'm just guessing that must mean your car has started down the line.

If they had told me two weeks ago that my car would be built on 11/30, that wouldn't have been a major concern to me. But to tell me the TPW is ll/14 and then change it to 11/18 and then not deliver makes the waiting that much harder.

Temporary VIN? I've never heard of that

I still haven't seen anyone with a TPW for this week and i wondered if the factory shut down. Now, with a "temporary" VIN and TPWs changed and passed, I wonder if they would start a car down the line and then leave it in place for a week?

Dang guys, I'm sorry, that sucks!

Now that you mention it, I haven't seen anyone with a TPW this week either. Tonight I sent an email to GM Canada asking if the Oshawa plant is down this week. If I find out anything, I'll post it here. I did a little research and Oshawa has been shut down before for short periods due to limited demand.

Close - I ordered a 45th 2SS vert LS3 with hurst short throw shifter. Maybe they are being extra careful with our cars and taking extra time to make sure the vert tops don't have any isses ...not likely, but I can think that....

Sorry guys - I just checked back my emails today, and it wasn't Becky, it was my sales guy who sent me an email saying "it has a temporrary VIN which means it's in the build process.". I'm just checking this forum so much I thought it was Becky! She told me it was still at 3400.

Been a long wait myself. Ordered at the end of September. Heck that is three weeks before even Dirty D did.

Last check. CSX has dump the car in Valley Junction in East St. Louis and its waiting for UP to pick it up. She is about 280 miles from Kansas City and then onto a truck to head north.

Keeping fingers crossed that its Saturday.

PENSPHAN87 also had a TPW of 11/14. His car is a convertible too and is already at his dealer (see posting above in this thread). I don't know if he has the Hurst shifter and maybe that's the problem. But I'm really starting to think the plant is down this week.

I have been quite because my fate is the same but different, yes my car is at the dealer (and yes it has the hurst shifter in it) but I have to stick with our plan and wait till mid january to pickup my car.

So I am also in a holding pattern even though my car is sitting at the dealer I can't have it.

Different but still very fustrading! I really hope you get your cars soon and I bet you have yours before I have mine.

I stopped in at my dealer today to ask a couple questions. My sales guy wasn't there yet, so I talked to another guy who pulled my order up on their system. No surprise, no change. This sales guy told me that Oshawa was shut down this week. He also told me there isn't a temp VIN, they just use the order code. I guess my sales guy was just blowing smoke, which shouldn't really surprise me either.

Sorry Pensphan87, I still hope to get mine this year. Sorry you have to wait.

Check out the conversation I just had with Becky on the other thread about the plant being closed and your order number. As I recall, there's been problems with your order number being transposed in the past. Don't know if it would do any good to ask Becky for your status again this afternoon before the holiday; but at least we know there's still hope our cars will be built this week.

Just a little later than you - 1100 on 10/18. I called the 800 nmber today too and all I got out of it after a long call with a long hold period was "it should be done this week, but if not then it should be built next week". She did say dome of the plants are closed - I should have pushed for details but didn't. I am assuming that may be where the striping gets done possibly? You'd think someone from GM would chime in about this week - that question shows up in many of the affected build week threads. Oh well - I guess that means the next possible update is likely next Tuesday.

Anyway - Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Yep, I've pretty much resigned myself to being in the dark until at least Tuesday.

It's a real shame that in this computer age GM can't provide us a website where we could put in our order number and actually see where the car is in the build process instead of being told the status after the fact. FedEx and UPS do a much better job providing tracking information...GM could learn a thing or two from them.

Have a great Thanksgiving everyone!

Dude, I know you want your car, hell, so do I, but you ordered close to three weeks past I did. Honestly I feel like I might be breaking the record for delivery time. Look at Dirty D. He order three weeks past my date and is getting his probably at the same time I am.

Its just a roll of the dice. There is a lot getting made out of the plant and they have a system for efficiency. Heck even if they build yours next week, you are still a week ahead of me from order to build.

I know , it sucks. For me, I might have a week or maybe two to drive it before it sits in my garage for the winter. That really sucks.

They will build it, they will. Patience is golden.

Think of it this way, with each passing day you are learning to appreciate the car even more. So there are positives ... I think ..

Well, she got unloaded from the train in San Antonio yesterday. Now she's just waiting on a truck to get her to my dealer.

Hopefully this coming week!

Mine is still loaded ... but "constructively placed" meaning they have it .... but can't get to it ... :(
