okay okay okay.
for alll of you complaining about Avis getting theirs first...
how do you know that they didnt order before you did?
they could have already had a contract with GM saying that they will get X number of camaros before X date. and if that was signed before 10/13, then they order before any of use had a chance
Or, what if they ordered 10/13, at 8:00 a.m.?

just thought id throw that out there

Because they were supposed to go to individual customers not companies. All this does is push the rest of us back by weeks. To top it off our cars won't be the first on the roads. It's just not right, Just like Dealers have been stringing along customers to get the order in under the name and then jack up the price so they are forced to pay or walk away. From my understanding GM set the ground rules for the preorders, and no one seams to be following them including GM.

Is it just me or is anyone else getting just a little pissed. we have all waiting for our PRE-ORDERED Camaros for ever and they can have a parade with 20 or so SS Camaros and "Now you can rent them thru AVIS" we cant get ours built but it seems everyone else will have them before the true Camaro lovers even get a glimpse of there babies. WTF:mad 0259:

Yes I am sure you are right.. there were contracts done.. yadda yadda yadda and they signed the deal and GM saw dollar signs... in the end its all good, they need to do that.. GM needed to get the Avis cars out as they needed their money so they could buy more parts to make OUR CAMAROS (I like looking at it that way)....

Funny thing is.. we are Camaro enthusiasts, we love this car..... and we will forget our sadness and disappointments as soon as we finally get behind the wheel of that car..

we will sit in her and caress the steering wheel, gear shifter, seats, dash and wipe the dew of her hood.. we will forget all the frustrations of getting her and just feel the complete pleasure of driving her and having her in our driveway..

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.
I was being smart.

I think it just shows where we rank...

I will never preorder again...

There is about 300 Camaros on autotrader.com most for MSRP...

I think this sucks.....

[QUOTE=SemperFi;441936]I agree that silver looks great!
However, Im going Victory Red, because I actually believe it simply sings on the Camaro.
In all honesty, however, I would be just as happy and amazed driving this thing in any color, they all look fantastic. (except Aqua Blue, its a little behind the pack if you ask me)[/QUOTE

The chevy dealer in Moreno, California has somewhere around two dozen VIN's for 2ss cars, almost all the base price MSRP, listed as Avis cars. I called the dealership and they said they didn't expect any of them before the first week of May. I tried Long Beach Ca. as a rental location and none are available. That's weird that there's one in ATL.

Are you guys really serious with those kinds of questions? All the Camaro enthusiasts combined will not buy as many Gen5's as a rental car company will with one big check. GM needs as much money as it can get, quickly, so delivering cars to the rental companies before joe-average-buyer gets theirs makes perfect sense. Yeah, it's frustrating, but as Spock put it, "the needs of the MANY outweigh the needs of the few or the one".

I called Avis and they said there are currently no Camaros at any locations in AZ. :(

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!
