Change the name of the thread to "First Delivered, I win"

You may get more traffic but is this a members car?

I've not seen anyone claim VIN 2830.

The details at GM.ca have "APITT" next to the dealer number.

Richard,

Can you please go back there with a decent quality digital camera when the black stripes are on? You would be doing many members here a favor since we have yet to see the black rally stripes on a any car let alone yellow (which shoudl look very nice).

Thanks!

I know one guy in Eufala, AL who will be interested. Of course I still hope he sees his first in the next few days.

I wish I could, but the sales manager isn't going to let me go back there anymore... I am the only person that ordered that he even called about coming to check it out. I am good friends with another salesperson that works there (I put her husband in the Army) and she told me that she asked her manager if she could call her customer that ordered and he told her no... Hopefully I can put up some good pics of a black one when mine gets here! haha

Oh... and I don't have a bad quality digital camera, let alone a decent quality one.

I don't have any idea who owns this car... just know that he lives about 2 hrs north of Indy

I don't know how to change the name of the thread... but I think over 1600 views is pretty impressive. I feel like I actually made this forum better today!

I completely believe that I will... as far as I know, you have the most experience driving this beauty, and if you say it's OK, then who am I to argue... I've only turned the key once.

speaking of turning the key... I will admit that the sound wasn't as "throaty" as I would have expected, but it still sounded great!

This is cool and all, but damn... I wouldn't want a bunch of people oogling and fiddling and playing with my car before I got it...

I know the dealer's gotta prep it and stuff, but I mean come on... it's not a showroom display car for everyone to sit in!

I'm surprised no one has mentioned that

I completely understand and agree, but I couldn't turn down the opportunity since today was the first time I had ever seen one of these in person. I was the only person that isn't an employee that was allowed to even look at it. I brought a friend with me when I went and the manager wouldn't even let him sit in it, so I can assure you that it was treated with the utmost respect. I promise there was much more oogling and fiddling by the employees of the dealer than by me... I was kinda afraid to touch anything because I didnt want to mess anything up, because I know I would kill someone if they did some thing to mine...

That is just wrong!! What is wrong with saying, hey we got another persons car in if you want to check it out, but no touching. ( Check it out from a distance, what are we 10. )

Not to mention if it was a brand new client who thought he was interested in a Camaro, I bet he would get to finger it up. Would he not???? Hell ya he would

For Roger Penske's family member?

Thinking about the fact that there is only one car delivered, it's yellow (Penske's corporate color) delivered to a Roger Penske dealership....makes me think that this car may be for one of Roger Penske's 5 grown children??? or a close personal friend.

I would think there would have been a hauler full of Camaro's if this was just a regular delivery....

But the good news is they're arriving! ! ! !

Penske owns a buttload of dealerships, along with UAG. Does the Penske family even live within the vacinity of that dealership??

I'm pretty sure the 4/9 = April 2009 and not 9 April 2009. Not much difference I know...

Why would a salesman at dealerships prevent someone from looking at a car they might be interested in? Especially at a time when GM is fighting for survival. People just baffle me sometimes.

He lives in the suburbs northwest of Detroit somewhere because his kids go to a private school in the northwest suburbs (a friend of mine teaches there). I guess I would call that "the vacinity" for owning a dealership since they're not that easy to come by.
