Same... Since it hasn't changed I suspect march is still likely to recieve it (:

I think it's important to remember to be respectful of others, even if your views may be different, or if you don't like what they have to say, or if even if they have been rude to you.
on am on the fence about this. everybody has an opinion can post but I put about 0 stock in anyones opinion that doesn not have one or order. Maybe that makes me a piece of crap but it is how I feel.

pretty easy to be a cheerleader when you are not in the game.

you have a very different prespective when you have no stake/money tied up in the situation. Now when someone who has one on order tells me I am whinning I take it without any anger involved.

that being said there are plenty on here that are better people than me they don't even seem the least bit concerned. ohh I don't even want the car right now anyway it rained yesterday. ha ha. that is not how I am feeling. I want the car yesterday and I don't even have a PW.

Wow. Some people are just not going to let it go. We all have something in common. We like GM so can't we all just get along?

Fair enough, I will not pry into the reasons, but I will politely ask you to ease up on some of the others in here... all of the others in here... they are not, any single individual, the cause of the hold...

Not S.S., nor Al O. nor any other individual... It's a collective decision by GM, to not release a car before it's ready... Again, It's good business...

Irritating others and stirring the pot do not help the situation... Please consider this when you're posting.

Thank You for hearing me out...

I'll be hanging out with some of them on the weekends after I get my
car.

DITTO!
Just because I don't have one on order (because no dealers here have an allocation yet) it doesn't mean I don't want a ZL1 like NOW!
In fact I probably want one more than those that have one on order...at least you can play in the game...be happy for that.

In a nut shell.........COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS....things could always be worse...and yeah, things could always be better, and they will, you just need to wait awhile.

Everyone...

Please take a moment and ease up...

There are entirely too many personal attacks going on and they will stop...

Refresh your mind on the rules of posting... It matters not a whit if you have a ZL1 on order or are just interested in one...

If you are agitating, (trolling, our opinion, not yours) we will take the steps necessary to calm the thread...

If you are name calling and instigating just for your own purposes, we will address it.

I ask that each of you take the time to report personal attack postings and we will address them. If you get caught up in a school yard brawl/shouting/name calling/etc match.. you will go the same way of the others...

We have been more than tolerant due to the excitement and anticipation... but most all of us are adults, and we should conduct ourselves as such....

Not all of us. I like the Vette, love the Camaro and respect the engineers and workers but to say I like GM is a bit of an overstatement.

I don't mind the hold I really don't... Honestly I'm glad they are holding them... I just want an update and maybe a date of expected release so I may once again prep for delivery

Would you be the first in line to complain and start threads all over the forum if there was anything wrong with your ZL1.

Please be patient and try to realize that GM is probably just as if not more upset than you are. They want this car on the streets, but I for one applaud their sense of what is proper and right...

To release a car with potential problems is not good business...

As for telling the Moderators of this forum to go elsewhere or dictating how we will run this site..., let me ask you this...

Would you allow someone in your house and give them free rain to badmouth the very place you allowed them to enter... Your House...

We are charged with keeping the peace in here, and we will do so... We are trying very hard to be tolerant since we understand the frustration... but there is a limit... and then we can send those very people badmouthing the place we allowed entry HOME...

What it all boils down to is understanding there are much more important things in life than the delivery date of a new car....

I put off buying my car with an RPO vin... but it didn't happen... I opted to wait due to my wife's illness, did I begrude her for it... Certainly not... Then there were a couple of other things that came up to delay it but that's ok... I still got my dream car...

Patience Please... Allow Gm to deliver to you the best car they can at this time... rather than something you might have trouble with and end up with a bad taste in your mouth...
I agree 100%, they could have held on to the 2010's for a few extra weeks I would not have complained considering. I could say more but I'll leave it at that.

I'm anxiously waiting too.

So I can spank a ZL1 on the drag strip.

Everyone is intitled to their own opinions on how they are feeling and I think its great hearing the things I am on this site.
Everyone that is actually getting a 2012 is very lucky and I'm sure they realize this from what they have been hearing.
I'm sure that I'm not alone with what happened to me recently which was I was at status 1100 as of Februaury 21st and was contacted by GM on Wed. afternoon telling me they regret to inform me that they pulled my order from my dealer and said they were sorry.
Well that sorry doesn't cut it with me with GM, as I said to the rep all I would like and deserve as a loyal customer of 20+ years is an explanation as to why this happened...Thats all... also to give me a time line to when I would receive a 2013 if I was to proceed with one... no answers still...
Obviously there are a lot more things in life to worry about and I'm sure we all realize this but for a lot of us outside of our normal hussle bussle lives it is our passion to have something like this in our garage...
