Cars that show up on lots that you can buy before you get the pre-order are simply cancelled orders.
If you read any other threads, totally believing production codes would be naive.
not to fixate on this (oh hell why not fixate) but I was NOT told that my car I ordered in January might not get delivered for 9 months (fourth quarter). I was told April. Then I was told May. Then I was told "certainly by early summer." Then I read on this forum about the fourth quarter stuff.

In my dealer's defense ... had he told me i could pre-order but would actually be behind dealer cars I would definitely have said why bother and waited to see them show up on lots where I could sit in one ... drive one etc.

All that having been said ... I'm still excited and glad I ordered.

I really, really want the car by Memorial Day ... been at 3300 for a week ....

DKB.....I here ya. I order in December and I have been at 3300 for right at two weeks. That doesn't mean the actual code isn't higher, just that GM isn't real fast about updating. My TPW was this week, but I haven't heard a word. Doesn't mean it's not built and waiting to go, but who knows. I hope to take delivery just before Memorial day too. There coming, we only have a matter of days and weeks to wait now....not YEARS!!!!

I don't mind the idea of GM making and shipping cars for the show-room floor but IMO the majority of the cars rolling off the lines should be for the guys/gals who ordered back in 2008. Screw AVIS...I think they should've been the last to get anything.

PS: I doubt all of the pre-orders were done by "GM Fans". If you have a big Toyota fan who finally switched sides and bought a Chevy b/c this car completely kicks ass and is left waiting and waiting after they pre-orderd back in Oct or Nov. and they all of a sudden see a camaro at AVIS and wonder why they still haven't gotten theirs yet... that might leave a bad taste in their mouth and this might be the last GM car they buy... Just a thought...

Also...the best way to get the publics attention is to get the car in the hands of the guys/gals who love this car and have been waiting...not putting it on a lot to be sold...get it in the hands of the ones who are going to drive it 24/7 b/c they can't get enough of it... thats free advertising right there...

I don't think the 614 sold cars means that only 614 preorders were built.

I think it means that only 614 preorders were delivered and picked up.

No cars are "sold" until the invoice and car is delivered.

The 614 sold is how many Camaro's were reported delivered in April, not how many "Sold" orders were built.

So this means that there are over 7,000 Camaros that are either sitting in big parking lots, or currently in transit, huh?

I agree the wait is getting hard....this is like waiting on a baby to be born.......I ordered my 1SS on October 16, 2008........It was pulled for production 3 weeks ago and it is still in that status according to my dealer today. The dealer is having their big Camaro unveiling on May 6, but will only have the one car that has come in this past Monday. Luckily, the buyer of this car is willing to bring it back for everyone to see. I have not seen any on the road here in SC........

GM has no reason to delay our orders, think about it, with the economy they need all the income they can get, i have confidence that they will be doing pre orders as fast as possible until they are finished because they have buyers lined up... they have no reason to be playing games when they have customers lined up to pay for cars....

The 614 number is how many have been sold to a customer. (6000 status) (burning gas)

there should be a large number of cars in transit at any point in time see if this math makes sense to anyone

about 200 cars produced a day lets say

and my dealer said it can take a week to 10 days for the car to arrive after being built

so 500 to 1000 cars could potentially be customer orders that have not been delivered yet....

In order to keep the production line moving when contraints come up, they're building other cars.......that's reasonable and expected. Calm down, you've waited this long and we are all weeks away from getting this awesome car.

a couple dozen delivered orders out of over 7000+ = 'many'? Can I borrow your calculator? I can resolve our whole deficit problem pretty quickly.

I'm about to say F*ck THEM and buy my brother-in-law's 67SS RS and a Scion XD at cost

I think GM wants all of us to cancel our orders and buy Fiats. If my car is not produced and delivered in 60 days I will cancel the order just out of principle. Seriously, why sell a car that you cannot deliver. I didn't spend 40 grand to get treated like a d-bag.

If your reading this GM please take notice I will buy a Shelby in 60 days!!! (or a Fiat....cao for now)

I absolutely understand everyone's frustration with the wait, but I'd hope everyone would be willing to think more big picture.

GM just discontinued Pontiac to stay afloat http://www.pontiac.com/owners/pontia...ued-statement/

Several other brands are on the auction block (Hummer, Saturn, Opel, & Saab) http://www.montrealgazette.com/Cars/...y.html?tab=VID (3rd paragraph)

I have no doubt GM / Chevrolet & it's key brands will survive this, but they are going to have to loose some limbs to do so, and make smarter decisions knowing that if they dont, they won't survive.

So is it an inconvenience to everyone waiting for their car? Absolutely! But I'm sure there is a good business reason for it.

However... if there is not...

You're not one of those who was going to cancel if Ambient Lighting didn't go across the dash, are you?

How many people actually cancelled over that?
