MY TARGET PRODUCTION WEEK (TPW)

Hey Guys & Gals:

I just got off the phone with my dealership, and had the General Mgr. check on my order, which had not even been pulled yet. He gave me great news, and told me that my TPW is June 1st. I will save the other, more emotional smilies, for when my Camaro actually arrives.

By the way he read the story, I e-mailed, about the guy in Kentucky, who's car was sold to the owner's son, and he couldn't believe it. He also couldn't believe, and asked me if it was true, that dealers in the states are selling the cars for anywhere from 5-15K over MSRP? I told him that they try, but I don't think they found any suckers.

Hey Frank, i swear i remember telling you that i thought your car would probably come in June, and i think im right!
There should be no QC holds for you, and i think the white stripes will be dealer installed since its a 1SS which means you should see you car first week or second week June!

When I ordered ALL grey & white stripes were factory installed, I think that changed after full production started, remember all the cars in the lot, in those Oshawa pics? Either way as long as they're on & done right.

they found a sucker at my dealership. this person bought a 1LT with sunroof, nothing else for 5k over MSRP. Crazy and if people would just stop doing that the dealers couldnt do what they are doing. I ordered mine and got it for MSRP.

Why did he say a month. Cars have been arrived about 5-7 days after being built. Max 2 weeks from the day its built
Did you order stripes?
If not and since its an auto, theres no QC hold or delay, therfore you car should be there about a week or two after its built, which would give you a late June or first week July delivery. But i seriously think that it would be there around the last week of June for you

I think the saying goes "there's a sucker born every minute", at least the money is coming out of his pocket and not ours

TJ you're our guy with the cystal ball, you were right on the TPW for me, so I believe you're right about the arrival being a couple of weeks after build.

dont worry Frank, i think that your car should be here either in the second week of June, or early 3rd week. Im going to go with June 10th at the dealer. Just a guess, lets hope im right
Cars going in for stripes now are in one day and out the next now. So striping has sped up.
Dont think your car will hit a QC check either. All is looking good for you Frank
I will be the last to join the Amigos, im sure that mine will get stuck at QC as it will be a new batch of V6 manual cars, they probably want to do a QC check on that.
Hopefully we see our cars soon

I'm banking on the week of the 15th, because I'm on holidays, what a treat that would be

I sure hope things work out as expected for everyone. I ordered on May 2nd and already it feels like a lifetime
Do you guys think production will continue if they go into bankruptcy? Seems highly likely now that it will happen. Can't imagine being delayed even further but I know I shouldn't complain when compared to how long some have been waiting.
Good Luck!
Kevin

There's a lot of factors to take into account, and the time frame that it will take to complete the whole process; it's confusing sometimes. Here is the latest media release on the topic. My production week is June 1st, talk about cutting it close. I think my car will get built without any delays, because by the time they file, appeal, sell off assets, etc. I hope to have my car. That may sound selfish, but I hope no one else suffers for this, but I can't see that happening beacause of all the orders they have to fill.

We went to our dealership to order an 2SS/RS IOM on May 7th. Fortunately, they already had one on order for dealer stock. When we put money down, they were able to move our order to #1 since it had a name to go with the order. We found out yesterday that we have a TPW of 6-15 also. Is it possible we could have the car late June/ early July? Does having a TPW mean we're at 3300? We're starting to get excited again. (For those who don't know, this is our 2nd order after our 1st order got screwed up by another dealer.)
