Just thought I'd repost this:

Having said that, 9160 produced does not indicate that all 9160 are sitting on the ground in Oshawa. Many have been transported out.

It is a continuous flow of vehicles out of the facility. For those who have never been to Oshawa, it is a huge facility where the vehicles are shipped out of. Of course any photos taken are going to show a lot of cars on the ground. That's what happens here until they are released for shipping via rail or truck.

No that would be safe to say GM has your address and you are in the computer. If you are at the first stage and you ordered on the first day a car with no constraints, I bet you have been had.

I'm not saying you will never get a car but that would explain the 1100 club.

If it takes 4.55 days to build a Camaro (time on the assembly Line) how do you explain Rick Hendricks number 1 car coming off the line on March 17th when production started on March 16th. That means production started before the official date of March 16.

Food for thought.

I disagree, it means the dealer had ROOM in his allocation and placed the preorder. If the dealer did NOT have allocation as the poster implied. We would have not gotten the kit.

I thought i read somewhere on here back in March that production did start the week before the 16th so they would have cars to roll out on production day.

????????? not real sure

I bet you guys that are still waiting, not all but some were lied to by your dealers about allocation (not GM). These guys were never thinking about a forum like this to expose them. I had it happen twice to me before I really had my order in. They always say yes we have 1 more allocation just for you, while they sold that same spot 4 times and put you in the computer but without allocation the computer jumps over it until all real pre orders with real dealer allocation are filled.


WHO wants to bet me?[/QUOTE]

I guarantee thats happening - it happened to me. My orginal dealer flat out would not tell me how many allocations they had! But were more than happy to take my order on 2/23. Finally on 4/22 I cornered the sales guy and he told me some nonsense (with some lies thrown in) like - GM had 15,000 orders in two days and they sold out!!!! I need to be patient!! Thats not verbatim - but, its close!!!! The bottom line is that they have 4 allocations and I was number 5!!! I was pissed the whole night!!! The next morning I contacted CamaroScotty!!!! Its all good again!

So, no I wont take that bet!!!

Shit... this may be ... true!

Just got off the phone with a GM CSR. My car is STILL ON THE LOT (and has been for weeks now). The lady told me her son is a security guard and for some reason the cars are NOT MOVING. What the FRACK is going on ?!??!

I think something like that happened to Tantalizer. He found someone else after telling them where to put their over allocation sale.

Sorry I was scanning the page but you beat me to it! That's it

I never meant or implied that there were 9000 new camaro's waiting to be delivered, but that is is the correct amount produced since they started. Keep in mind there are 14,000 preorder's PLUS all of the V6 Dealer cars. We're getting closer but not quite there yet. My car has been at 3000 for over 3 weeks.

Mine was built 4/24/09 and is vin 5395. I suppose if you figure in all the dealer cars, etc. then you might be up towards the 9000 number, but not all are sitting at the plant.
