Good news for Nor Cal people if you haven't ordered yet!!! Group discount

Well I was talking to the internet sales manager with Putnam today, and even met his boss. Both are extremely nice people and seemed to have a decent knowledge of the car, although they did admit to checking these forums for info from time to time, and they have assured me that we can set up some sort of a group/member discount. I'm going to speak with them again in the next few days and see what exactly we can work out. If you haven't ordered a camaro yet and still want one, please post asap so I can start formulating the list. I had one from a while back but it dissolved and people that were on the list haven't posted in a while.

1. Mindz - 2SS/RS Convertible (might change to Z if it's made), ordering next May or so.
2. ls3ss - 2SS/RS Vert, CGM or RJT with black top and black hood stripes
3. *Milk_1027 - 1SS/RS, ordering when 2011 model is announced4. Lakailb87 - Undecided on 2LT/RS or 2SS
5. Chevymuscle311 - 2SS Auto RS Undecided on color
6. chadrcr - Undecided on 2LT/RS or 2SS
7. *countryguy05
8. *Iwantone2 - 1SS, CGM, RS package, BA sound
9. mjwaldschm - 2SS/RS Convertible IBM w/white rally stripes (or RJT w/CGM Rally Stripes)
10. ninja - 2SS/RS
11. *Tribone - Black 2SS/RS
12.
13.
14.
15.


*Possibly interested depending on discount


Update: There is no group discount. Both dealers are unable to provide any discount past msrp.

I will ask about drop shipping, but I'm sure they can. I'll put you on the list with a *. Any idea on what model you're planning to order?


Iwantone2, it's only an hour flight up and a 6 hour maiden voyage to break in/get to know your camaro.

Putname Chevrolet is located in the heart of the SF bay area peninsula (Burlingame is located about 10 miles south of San Francisco). I will update this on monday when I have a chance to talk to Benjamin Rivas (Internet Sales Manager).

Sorry haven't had time to repost, what about trade in? If I fly over there, no trade in. If I drive up there, more miles will be put on truck. What about drop shipping? How does all paperwork/trade in get handled, anyone know?

The 'Maro I have on order and would like is 1SS, CGM, RS package, BA sound. Of course since I suck, I wouldn't be able to take delivery or make purchase until after July, damn credit card debt. I wish there was an easier way.

Tribone added. I just got off the phone with Ben Rivas of Putnam Chevy and sent him a link to this list. He will be reviewing with his manager and they will give us the best deal they can. More info when they respond. They are currently waiting to fill the rest of their orders, so the sooner you get on their list, the sooner you will have your car. Anyone else interested is still welcome to put their name down as this list will be a constant running thing.

Update:

Well after speaking with both contacts I have in Northern California, It seems that neither is able to offer a discount for almost 15 people looking to buy the car. I person said for sure a discount could be offered, only to be overruled by his boss. The best I can get is MSRP. I'm sorry guys...

No worries, Mindz. The important thing is that you tried and that you took initiative. Thanks a bunch!

Hey Mindz, went to Putnam on Saturday to view the vehicles that had (I thought I remembered hearing they had 2 V6's and a silver 1SS). Young salesperson said the two V6's were sold last week and knew nothing about having had a V8. And the proceeded to try and sell me a corvette saying that if I was interested in a V8 that would run me $45K plus $5K dealer mark-up. Told him he was wrong and walked.
