These days, we don't descend on the plant with pitchforks, we should organize a cyber assault at gmconnects.com. Armed with your login, ask specific questions on your ZL1 orders. Here is what I just received from my inquiry:

"Every Zl1 produced has been bayed in Quality Control since the moment they were born. The only official word we have seen was from a month ago that said the first ones were expected to be delivered mid March. Honestly, I think that might be a little over agressive and perhaps they did not think about the plant shutdowns that were scheduled. Your order is VIN#4. wow you must be beside yourself to get a super low vin like that. I also saw yours had already moved thru stripes so at least that is out of the way. I would think yours would be one of the first to ship once they are released."

Mine was built Feb 3(VIN #150) and twice a day I am on this forum checking to see if anyone has shipped. It is really getting old anticipating the arrival and realizing the environment Chevrolet is exposing my latest family member to. I would not put my kids on the street until they were at least 18, but it is a crime when they are less than a month old. If it does not show up before March 24 at my dealership, my wife will have to pick her up since I will be out of the country until May! I want to be here for the homecoming, so I am praying it gets on a train very soon.

It is a good thought but the gentleman that owns and updates gmconnect is independent. Search his name on here hylton. he does it out of the kindness of his heart. You really want to have fun keep calling customer support.

The wait is horrible, why is it taking so long? It's march now and it takes a week or two for the car to make it to the dealer. I can kiss my late match arrival good bye hello April

Hypothetical: Your car is delivered with a minor manufacturing defect that could have been corrected if bayed for just a week longer....

How would you feel?



Be patience, SSSylent!! It will be worth the wait 1000-fold, and another week or two won't change that one little bit. I promise!

I know we are all anxious but we need to let the good folks on the Camaro team go through their process. Nobody wants to receive a car that has a problem that could have been prevented. Too much at stake here. Another few weeks or so is no big deal.

I'd rather it be perfect when it arrives. It just seems like the process it is supremely long. It's my first time ordering from scratch, so excuse my anxious mind.

I don't relish the thought of my ZL1 being parked under the stars on frozen tundra awaiting the go-ahead signal that seems to be taking forever. What does a guy have to do to get his BEAST? Have SEAL TEAM 6 HALO drop into the Oshawa plant & liberate my Camaro that's being held hostage? It's like the guys who built these monsters bonded with them & don't want to let them go to their rightful owners.
ZL1s have heroic autobots guarding them at Oshawa that won't work.

I'm just wondering if they are baying them until all are produced. It would be a mass display of ZL1's on the streets even though there is a limited production number. I think the dribbling arrival of 1 or 2 at a time would not be as dramatic as a thousand plus some change showing up at dealerships across the nation at the same time. JMTC

I get on here everyday to see what is going on and checking to see if anyones have shipped yet. ALthough I check for an entirely different reason.
I want mine just as much as the next person, but I want it to wait till atleast the end of march or early april just so my schedule gets better work wise and I can actually drive it.
If it comes now it will get parked till then anyways.

Thumbs down GM Hold Announced?

I just got a call from the inventory manager at my dealership saying he received notice from GM about a hold on the shipment. He said that there is not date announced for the release yet and the reason was not specified.

Becky: Can you confirm this?

I talked to Becky just a few minutes ago when ordering my Pedders. I asked about her car and she said there is no shipping information and will be later this month. You have to remember GM said many months ago no cars to dealers till Mid-March, it is only the 2nd.

Is this a different hold than we have been on since our cars were produced or just more of the same?
