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?

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!!!

Dont take any shit from anybody!! - Billy Joel
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.

Food for thought.
That car started down the line the previous thursday or so.

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.

If 9169 have been built and the truck driver said there are 9000 waiting to be delivered or are in the process of being delivered, and only a handful are on dealer's lots or in buyer's hands-----then the truck driver was basically telling the truth.
Don't know how it could be construed any other way. What intially sounded like BS is basically TRUE!

I'm guessing the 9000 is including the dealer cars, and cars going to places like Avis.

That's it. This thread should be over. I kinda think Hylton is a definitive answer...

This makes sense to me, but everyone else has good points too. I dont know what the heck to believe!! Ah well, it'll be a few years before I buy one, so it's not really my problem .

actually they have produced 350 a day. week before last they did about 1780 in 1 week.
At the rate they are going they can do 80,000 per year.

A lot of the cars are already in the regional railyards.
Remember only the cars within a certain radius of oshawa leave by truck, the rest go by rail, which really slows up the process, because they sit at the railyard before the trucks pick them up.
I'd be willing to bet that the 9000 number is not that far off.

Some of the last Vin # issued for example thru 4-24 was in the 5360 range. Come on pull on your boots and do a little searching before spreading bogus info. Some new folks might get the wrong idea and think we are all a bunch of ****** and that is just not the case. Way to go Hylton. Your credibility speaks volumes between your words.
