Not entirely. My mom hasn't posted yet. She was a bit slow on the draw.

I'm sorry to hear that though. You never know, maybe they'll end up being killed along with the thousands of other dealers being shut down.

I'll bet if that dealer was told that any further orders of Camaros he made would be "lost" he'd knock that shit off.

Well put Fbod...I never quite understood all the bashing you've recieved, not necessarily here, but on the other boards during the hiatus. I think its simply awesome the amount of time you put in listening to average Joe's over the years, and have put our thoughts/suggestions into the engineering process.

With that said...should I put in an order for a 2SS now, or should I wait for the possibility of the Z28? I need a supercharger, and I would prefer the factory installed unit

Thank you for your time and dedication to this car and it's fans. My Camaro memories only go back about 25 years but this will be my fourth and I have no doubt in my mind the best one ever. You have our utmost gratitude and respect.

That about sums it up...We live in a sociality that expects to have gratification today; we have lost the value of patience. I want to thank you for taking the time to explain your reasoning and allowing us to watch the progress of this car. I think most people understand that you/GM didn’t have to provide everyone all this inside information. I think just get wrapped up in their emotions and therefore frustration sits in.

I am one of the lucky people to have my 1 SS now. Belive me the Camaro is all of what Scott has been telling us it is. It is really worth the wait. Quality, Style, and Power are a wow! This car will be a big seller.

I know that it may seem that way -- but in reality, most of our dealers are hard-working people who are trying to do the right thing -- and most of them are very benevolent to their communities.

(...and industry sales satisfaction and service satisfaction surveys will bear this out -- we're above industry average and many of the foreign manufacturers are the worst!)

The problem is that a few ruin and tarnish everyone else.

We constantly talk to our dealers --

You may also have heard that we're going to reduce the number of dealers across the country -- not sure how that's going to play out -- but you can be assured that 'sales and service satisfaction' will play a big part in who stays and who goes.............

I picked up my new Camaro SS 2SS yesterday and it definitely exceeded my expectations!!! It is true to the concept car. And I can weather the early recall issue because I think it is expected. Chevy did a great job with this car! I had it on the dyno today and it made 367hp and 373tq at the wheels. Better than my 2001 Vette did by far. Get ready for the aftermarket parts!
