Dealer told me I'm looking at a 10 month wait...legit?

I went in to see a 2SS IOM with the IOM interior, 21" wheels etc today at a local dealer. He told me if I placed the official order today, I wouldn't realistically expect to see the car until Feb or so of 2010. Does that sound reasonable?

completely depends............go read some threads about this.

if you find a dealer with allocation left (your dealer probably doesn't), possibly late summer...........

I spoke with the sales manager and he said they already have over 30 orders in...I asked him about allocation, and he kind of brushed it off. I think there might be something to that. I know this car is hot, and will be throughout the summer, but I just have a hard time believing its already a 10 month waiting list. He also is selling them for MSRP...whereas most other dealers locally don't seem to be doing, at least initially.

the Camaro is NOT involved. only possible shutdown of the Camaro is if GM files bankruptcy and they halt ALL production until it's final.

thats the word from the man himself.................

If GM files for chapter 11 bankruptcy and all production stops, it's going to get pretty ugly around here.

There is no 9 week shutdown for the Camaro Plant, maybe a 1 week over July 4th week (old news). You waited 7 months after ordering but 5 of those months they were not in production and the other 2 months they were just ramping up production.

There is the 500lb gorilla in the room right now. If this happens it's anyone's guess what will happen and my guess is that it is going to happen.

I talked to a salesman at a local dealership who told me they still have one allocation left from their original production guide number (at MSRP). He said his inventory manager told him if someone took that spot today, they'd have their car by July... for whatever that's worth.

I put my order in last October and my dealer still has no clue. My car has not even been ordered. They are telling me I might get it by October. Maybe I should find another dealer!!!

I'm starting to think this dealer's annual allocation might be full, and thats why he's telling me early next year.

Your dealer is no goodnik. I wanted to order last October, but someone (wife) wanted to see my Vette restoration done and sold before we ordered. Almost done and not sold, but she finally wanted to go for it. I wore her down with pictures and talking about the car all the time. YES!
I finally convinced the wife it was time and we ordered about a month ago from a dealer that had 11 allocated and still had 3-4 left after I placed my order. His best guess was 60-90 days to delivery. He told me could be anytime in that range. If you want the info on the dealer outside of Kansas City let me know He is familiar with this site, its where I found him.
