Your telling me that Bubba can go park his '82 Ford F-150, plunk $100 or so bucks at Hertz and drive a Camaro before the guy that pre-ordered one last October... That's messed up!

All of the loyal GM and Camaro fanatics are just being shown how loyal GM is to them. Thankfully I'm not one of them (nor to any company or business). Just someone who thinks this new Camaro looks cool enough to give it a try eventually.

This is just another reason not to want my taxes to help bail them out. I feel sorry to all that preordered.

I somehow doubt these rental places have a lot full of Camaros that you can just walk right up and rent. You surely have to reserve one in advance and the waiting list is a mile long I'll bet.

Does anyone have a list of what cities they are available in? I just looked up the Chicago area and no one seems to have it.

I actually called Avis a couple of weeks ago when I saw on the VIN tracker thread that close to 100 2SS' were ordered through Moreno Valley Chevy. The car has been showing on the website under the "Cool Cars" category for a month. But of course, NO ONE in customer service at Avis knows which locations the cars will be at. I was told to find either the Corvette Convertible or the Camaro (because I knew most-likely none of the Camaros had actually been delivered to Avis yet) any where in California I would have to search each of their 50 California locations. Great customer service huh?

I guess I could have been a real B and made her search each and everyone while I sat on the phone. I've sent two e-mails to Avis customer service and received only one response that was generated by a third-party center. I did also search for both the Corvette and Camaro at several key tourist points here in California, Hawaii, Florida and also in Vegas thinking those would be likely places they would carry those speciality vehicles. NOTHING. So it would be nice to find out where all of the 100 Avis, already built 2SS' are going.

So I guess they should do a pre-rental-order program for those people waiting to rent a Camaro. I can imagine a whole new AVIS Forum springing up where people talk about how long they have been waiting to rent a Camaro, what color they are going to rent, what options the rental has, track where their rental car is, etc. They could call it Avis5.com

What a lucky bunch of people who get to rent them. I checked in my area and had no luck. Anyone else check in their area?

I will swing by that hotel on the way home and see if it's still there and try to grab a VIN shot and find out more info. I've already tried the Avis customer service to get one for the weekend, no go. Apparently, determining the location of a specific car is borderline rocket science. You have to know exactly where it is for them to find it....

Anxious... excited... and tired of waiting. It's been 6 months for me. And it just gets more frustrating with every SS that is delivered on the west coast to someone other than me. Just getting tired.

Yea, I checked all over Chicago too and no dice. I'm thinking about renting one of these puppies for my last day of school/prom. Would be awesome to drive in with an SS Camaro than the Honda Civic I have now... :(

Hurry up Avis!

It's unbelievable how the members here don't undestand GM as a business. They would screw every die-hard here to turn a few extra bucks with any rental company. They don't build or design for the love of the car. They do it fora buck. Wake up and get over the love affair. This isn't the Company of the 60's, it's a bunch of incompetents running the company into the ground. They couldn't use the bailout money effectively, they're going bankrupt and selling off thousands of dealerships. it's a race to see how many of us actually get our camaros before they go under all together. You can bash Ford all yuo want, but 2 years from now they will be honoring their warranties. Gm is dead.

stop it....the primary role of a business is to make money...the people who designed the car are not the same people who make the financial decisions....those who designed the camaro are extremely passionate and all of us saw how much they cared to make their art a reality...just ask f-bod

and gm's problem have a lot more to do with government regulations like c.a.f.e and horrible just horrible uaw contracts made when gm and ford were the only games in town....but in todays world have made it very difficult for them to compete when they are paying more to retired workers healthcare than their actual working workers....

Well, then again I guess Avis has the cash so why can't they get a bunch of them.

Oh well, still just waiting for mine.
Keep in mind the Owner(s)/Managers at Avis are people too and they can put in thier own Pre-Orders just like others on this site have. They could have Pre-Order with the full intent of Renting on their own dime to boost Business and thier Bonuses.

Think about how many people have already lined up to rent it.

This is absolutely terrible I feel like I got cheated.I would have never reordered this car if I would have knew GM was going to pull this sh!t and what f up I paid over sticker. I was under the impression that I was going to be part of an elite group of early camaro owners but it looks like by the time we get our car every tom dick and harry will have driven one.we supported Gm and look how we got treated.I am very piss offed!

Is anyone hearing any good info from their dealership? Since GM started building on March 16th I've called about once a week and have gone a couple weeks before calling, but they (dealership) never have any information. I seem to give them the scoop and they also seem annoyed when I call. It's not like I'm calling every day or anything. I tried to tell them that I think I know my VIN, but they don't want any part of it.

Damn, if I had not already put money down I would go somewhere else. I know the dealership can't hurry up GM and make them ship, but they should at least give me some news once in a while.

In one of the other posts someone said that May 5th was going to be a big day and lots of Camaros would start rolling in. Mine has supposedly been built since the week of March 23rd, but I was told today it still has not shipped and that was basically it.

Anyone hearing any good news?

I wouldn't go for GM's throat on this. I'm sure Avis pre-ordered cars just like everyone else. So some dealership in Atlanta got one of their pre-orders. That's just 1.

Just because it's on their website right now, doesn't mean you can go to any location and drive off in one. I too am in Chicago, and none in this area. If avis had tons of camaros now, there would be at least one here now, but there's not.

For all we know, that one in Atlanta is the ONLY one that avis is currently renting out.

Pre-order or not, I'm sure GM is waiting for the official launch date to get most of these out into people's hands.

That's not surprising. I came down to a dealership with documents on the Camaro that they hadn't seen. Prices, standards/options, specs.... some dealers don't know a thing about the Camaro. I've gotten more valuable info from Camaro5 than I have from the dealers.
