Patience - How much do you have?

I’ve been reading the posts on this site for quite a while and needed to let you know – I made a mistake. I was fine in telling myself – the car gets here when it gets here. Then yesterday I went to my dealer (Kelly Chev. – Phoenixville, Pa) and (here’s my mistake) took out their 2LT RS for a test drive. The car is MORE than I imagined – and I can imagine a lot. Handles great and feels really solid. And in case you hadn’t noticed, is great to look at! My salesman (Jeff Hauber) and I went out for a drive. We received a lot of stares the whole time we were out.

Now my mistake has created a problem. I want the car NOW!!

So tell me, how much patience do you have and has anyone else had the opportunity to make the same mistake that I did?

My dealer by the way is NOT an idiot! Jeff calls me every week with an update on the status of my car (Ordered 2LT RS - CGM). Expected production date – Week of June 7-13.

the test drive does make it harder...but it'll be nice once it gets here and it's worth the wait.

Gee, don't you wanna wait? I mean your order could happen someday...buying now for more money is just not what the 'pre-ordering program' is all about...look at all the benefits we got so far.

I would wait if the car you ordered is what you really want. I understand how driving one has really made being patient that much harder but IMO it would be worth it to wait unless of course you found the same car on a lot that you ordered for MSRP, then hey.....grab it!

Man, I know its tough. But you gotta wait it out. After finally seeing and sitting in the car last Wednesday I definitely understand how you feel. I want it now, but it will get here when it gets here. I keep telling myself that the longer it takes the more money gets set aside for down payment, lol.

I think were all sick of waiting, but there are somethings that are definitely worth the wait, such as the Camaro.

They're ramping up production so maybe it will take less than two months.

This is easy as hell for you guys. Try having to wait a year from now before you can even put in an order. xD

I am going to wait it out no matter how long it takes. The Camaro is woth the wait. It is just a lot harder to wait after actually driving one.

Waiting is what makes the Camaro just that more enjoyable whent it arrives.

It's like waiting for your first born child. The anticipation is incredible, but when the Camaro arrives, your life will be changed forever.

You'll never be the same.

My advice: wait like the rest of us. And you too will enjoy that magical day!

Even though its other peoples decisions, it really bothers me when someone bails on an order, especially when they've wanted the car for so long.

Keep the faith... It is, IMHO, well worth the wait. For those of you who have already taken delivery, congrats. For those owners, I know that you can attest to the fact that you will not be disappointed when the day finally arrives and delivery is made.

Patience
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Patience (pā-shəns) is the state of endurance under difficult circumstances, which can mean persevering in the face of delay or provocation without becoming annoyed or upset; or exhibiting forbearance when under strain, especially when faced with longer-term difficulties. It is also used to refer to the character trait of being steadfast.

If this doesn’t apply to those of us who pre-ordered, I don’t know what does!

Keep the Faith!

I'm sitting on my hands waiting too. It's VERY frustrating waiting for my car. And for some reason, reading Camaro5.com makes it WORSE! (Thanks for not helping, Camaro5!)

I agree, once my local dealer got one and i actually got to see it "up close and personal" and actually SIT in it, (didn't get to drive it)-my "EXCITEMENT meter" went "through the roof"...i've been hanging in there all along and being very patient because i want my car to be made perfectly the first time around and i just figure that the longer it takes, the better the end result will be and life goes by fast enough, so my car will be here when it's ready for me to have it...LOL...but i must admit, i am now very, very anxious to get it as i see more and more forum members getting their cars and posting pictures...

Ever heard this old time rhyme...patience is a virtue, posses it if you can, often found in women but never in men! LOL

My dealer has the exact same car I ordered except it is a manual...I sat in it about 30 minutes yesterday inside the dealer showroom just talking to the GSM....I felt like I was in High School smoking a joint in my car! I'm so pathetic.

Ultimately, I'll be waiting as long as it takes for my Baby to get here. Impatience will only make it a harder wait, so I am trying to be very Zen-like in my approach now... sometimes it even works! hahaha.
