You should do some digging on that VIN, it is in the format of a CTF car.

Find out the build date.... I would bet money that it is before March 16th.

Can the CTF cars be sold ...

Did a VIN search and it shows it was a "code 70-Retail Stock" for how it was ordered. It was NOT a CTF car. Was ordered for dealer stock. Went into service on 4-25-09 with 5 miles on it. Probably had 20 miles on from being driven on the PDI and from going to the body shop to have the GFX installed.

So is there a A9000624 and a A1000624?

i.e. does this car count as being one of the 1st 1000? I am confused.

Cars with 000xxx are "pre-production" cars. They were generally reserved as part of the CTF. General production cars start with 100001. Many of the pre-production cars will be retrofitted and sold to GM employees or the public as demo models. This one and the ones in TX seem to go against this general principle. I will see what I can find out.

That decision has been plaguing my mind even more than the color decision. It's an expensive freaking option, but I think it is worth it.

Hate to quote myself, but I think I have the story here. There were xxx number of CTF cars produced (I will leave the exact number out for now, but it is less than 1000). So there are production cars that have VINs in the range of 1000-xxx - for example the VIN #000624 car shown as well as some other cars. Those units are completely saleable units and are regular production vehicles. I hope this clears things up.

Thumbs up

I like the ground effects, just not too crazy about the chrome/stainless exhaust ports. They look kinda cheesy, seeing the exhaust tips in there.
But over all, not too bad.
THANKS for posting those pics as well.

I was kinda' thinking I was going to paint them regardless, but was apprehensive about them costing what they do, not including paint. However, after seeing that, I know they'd look better painted (IMHO). I don't know if I'm diggin' the chin spoiler, but otherwise, it looks aggressive and bad@$$.

This car is HOT!!! Felt like the papparazzi was chasing us. People speeding up or slowing down to get on the side of us to take pictures with their phones. Anywhere we stopped people pulled up to ask about it and ask to take pictures. Wild day for sure.

The only pic I have right now is from my phone. Will get more up soon. Not sure on the mods yet but some changes will be made
TXInfernoSS i dont know if anyone asked you yet when you bought your Maro did you pay at MSRP or below MSRP with all the options and mods can you 411? thanks....

The GFX just looks too bling for my taste. It looks unique though..

Alright, I'll ask this NICE and SLOWLY. Please......did you have to pay any extra to have the ground effects painted? Was it included with the ground effects kit? Is it possible for you to find out from the dealer what the painting of the ground effects cost and if they were included in the price? Thank you.

When a car is sold that early from a dealer without you having to placed a pre-order you know they are sure gouging those prices to any one willing to pay a higher price just my 2 cents.....

if you go to the chevy site and do a build on a 2SS/RS with the polishes rim upgrade, GFX it comes to right about $39,600.. then you have destination charge, GFX paint and install.. etc. also, the build page doesn not allow you to pick all of the options.. so now, we didnt pay over sticker. sticker with everything on this car was ~$45k. We paid a tad over $40k for it.

now, someone else went to the dealer and bought the other one they had. didnt have GFX and not sure what else was missing from ours and they paid more for it than we did for ours.
