I highly doubt you or I can say if that is true or not. From your side it is just too easy to believe it is true. I know at the dealer where I ordered the GM and two salesmen ordered ahead of me, the Gm's car arrived last Friday, a customer came in and said he wanted it and paid $10,000 over MSRP to get it. So be it, I do not blame him for selling it nor do I blame the guy willing to pay $10,000 over sticker to get it. In college economics I learned there is no such thing as an item being overpriced if it sells.
Bottom line, our car is coming. This admin. will more than likely see to it that the modern hotrod is short lived, not good for the planet you know.
I guess what I am trying to say is all of the ranting and raveing, kicking and screaming will not get your car here any sooner. It is not Scott fault, he really is on our side.

Spend some time looking at the posts, people are ORDERING after the pre-order period and getting thier cars OR have a TPW already. I'm not talking about people buying a cancelled car at a high price.

I think the key word you left out is they are saying all of this. Some people are sick and enjoy pushing others buttons. I would not doubt some dealers had all or most of their allotment left and placed an order that got filled quickly. I don't understand how all of this stuff works with GM like I said they a bureacracy, and as such work like our governmet, hell they probably cant tell us how it works.

NOT TRUE!!!!

This car is important to most of us here. Some of us (including myself) didn't order first for personal reasons (financial, and others). I want nothing more than to see these cars out on the streets with their happy owners. I wish I were right there waiting with you guys, but I have to wait much longer than you guys and it's also frustrating for me.
The longer it takes to build your cars, the longer it will take to be able to order mine.
To me it seems like you're insinuating that because we aren't R6P people that we aren't loyal or true enthusiasts. Which is completly untrue.
If you're tired of people saying that they are part of the R6P crowd and they haven't gotten their car, don't read these posts.

You're so off base to compare yourself, who hasn't even ordered yet, to someone who has put down their hard earned money during the first months of pre-order and are STILL at 1100

Don't really care what your reasons are for not ordering one yet. Put your money where your mouth is. Order the car, wait 6+ months and and then tell the R6P crowd we have no right to complain.

I really don't think you took the time to read my post.

It's closed.

Scott's point seems to have gotten lost as this thread has progressed, and it's gone "off course" unfortunately.

People need to take a deep breath, relax, and practice a little patience. Yes, I agree, it can be frustrating waiting for a car we all feel so passionate about, but it'll be worth it!!!

This thread ISN'T about who has a right to complain, etc. Everyone has a right to express their feelings, whether you've ordered, or not. Unfortunately, the "expressions" have come close to crossing the line. So as requested, and seeing as this thread has reached its life expectancy, unless someone has a problem with it, I'm closing it.
