NO WILL POWER - 1st Camaro ever seen - HIGH 5's all around

For the last 3 years I have been watching this car come to life. All of it on the internet, most of it on this site. I had not been to a car show to see this car. I never was lucky enough to be in the right spot to see a CTF vehicle. BUT I ordered anyway. My order date was in November of last year. Even from that time it seems like an eternity. Still never laid eyes on one.
FAST FORWARD........MAY 5, 2009
I get an email from my dealership saying they have a black v-6 on the lot if I want to come down and see it.
I have never seen one and had started hoping that the first one I see would be my own. But when will that be?? Could be a long ways off. I want to see this car. So I go down and look at it. BEEEEEEUUUUUUUUTIFULLLLLLLL!!!!!!!!
FAST FORWARD.......MAY 7, 2009
New email from the dealer.

IN TRANSIT

All that waiting. I cave in. 2 days later I am in transit. I am a total failure. No willpower.


BUT

SHE IS ON HER WAY

Don't sweat it man. I kinda wanted the first one I saw to be the one I drive away too. I caved when Stephanie got her ride. Congrats.

Another case of someone that ordered after Oct 13 and is getting their car before ours are even built.

WHY?

You are really putting my order, from the 3rd week of the ordering process, in the same catagory with ones that were ordered in March and are being delivered??

It is my understanding from FbodFather that pre-orders were promised to be built by the 3rd quarter of this year. Why wouldn't you think others would get theirs first. I must be missing something?

Guys - make me feel better. I have NEVER ordered or bought a car sight-unseen. I pulled the trigger on the Camaro because I think it is the hottest thing from the Big 2 since the Ford GT (and I can't afford $150,000 car). What were you all thinking before you signed up?
