My 95 Firebird Convertible was 12,500 back in 98. Sold it in May of 2011 for 6,000. Had a lot of fun in that car for 6 grand.

No kidding. Got that money plus I bought a 99 RAV for my kid for $1500 as he turns 16 in a year. Got rearended by a kid texting and twisted the frame. Got $5500 for that one. Plus an investment I made about 15 years ago paid off huge. Not having a payment on this car is a bonus.

No it is not normal. They must not have allocation for a car. I went in on the 15th and my order was accepted by GM the following week. I am at 3000 status with a TPW of 4/2. I would ask them if they have allocation. Also, you may want to go to a high volume dealership. That way you will be sure to get your order accepted. Heck, just send Becky a message. She can order one up for you and drop ship it to another dealer by you.

From what ive seen on here, and what was told to me by my dealer, that doesnt sound right. My dealer doesnt seem to have allocation yet, but still told me 8 weeks.

You have to remember that Becky has to charge for drop ship. Allocation comes out on Tuesday's. If the dealer has it, your order should go in. Once it is accepted, you are looking at 6 to 8 weeks till production and delivery. My order was put in on the 21st, accepted on the 27th, TPW of 4/2. If things hold true with my other 2012, I should have delivery on or about 4/10. My other car took 8 days from production to delivery. The dealership I am using now is 100 miles closer to the railyard and a big dealership.

Did you get an order number? If so go to the gm connects site and start tracking it.

I did, it says: 02/29/2012 - (1100) Order placed at dealership. Order passed GM edit tables but dealer has not received allocation to place order.

My dealer said it was put in as a "Sold Order", expedited, and will go through whether the dealer has allocation or not, so I guess maybe cause the factory was down for a week, my order is still at 1100

Depends when you order it, ordered today, march 15th would be impossible by looking at any of the orders that people have tracked on Camaro5.

I would say it is BS unless they have one that is ordered already and is 2 weeks before being built where they can make the changes. Then they would change to your specs and get it for you.

Yeah and even then, it would take two weeks to start production, then once its done, another week or so to be delivered at the least.

You would be looking at march 26th at the earliest

If it is still at 1100 they do not have allocation. Mine was expedited also but still took 2 weeks on my first one to get allocation. No way in hell will you get a car by March 15th if it hasn't been produced yet. Maybe if it came off the line today you could.

He is getting from dealer stock though. Not the same as ordering one yourself. Sure hope you can get what you want. They are a blast to drive

I'm 4 weeks into my wait today and it gets better for a while. The exciting feeling starts to pick back up the week you know your car is built!

The worst thing is when you've already listened to every single 2010+ exhaust video on youtube. Hell, I even listened to the V6s too even though that isn't what I'm getting.

Haha, congrats on your order! Yeah, I know itll hit me hard when it has a build week set. Im also okay because I actually dont have the full downpayment right now, so if it came in I couldnt get it anyway lol. Waiting on my tax refund and since Im getting married the left over wedding budget will go towards the car.

What color did you order?
