bash me if you want i was just simply saying it was pointless in doing the 1 per dealer v6 car because i have not found one dealer that has kept the car for showing on the showroom floor. thats all i was saying.

If the dealer has the car on the showroom floor and someone wants to buy it, what should we do? If we say no, then they come here and bash us because "the dealer doesn't want my money!".

I think that if 15,000 people pre-ordered Camaro's without sitting in one, I guess the process works.

I agree with ya the car is awesome and lots of people want one. So what was the purpose of giving all the dealers a show car for the unveiling when there never was a true unveiling. They should have just said there giving all dealers one car before they start filling preorders.

We got our first ordered car on a Wednesday and wrote 5 new orders the same day. Then we got our stock unit and wrote 4 more that day as a result.

That's why dealers got those cars.

Some people will snooze and those people will lose. The ready buyers came and saw the car and ordered immediately.

We are all in the same boat. This doesn't help us V8's either. I think alot of us are sick of the bash GM. We will get our cars when they get here. I won't bash GM. I believe it will be worth the wait.

how is it pointless so a few people get there car like you and nobody else gets to see it, having people see it is whats going to sell it. Im sorry for all you preorders if you really thought GM was going to fill all of your orders first your smokin crack. From a business sense it wouldnt make any sense. To me I think preorders is rediculous anyways. I order mine a week ago and they say its going to be here by july. But what I can see them doing with preorders is giving you a estimated build window. Thus GM could space preorders out and keep you people from whining about it.

No I don't yet. It is immaterial as far as I am concerned.

I will have it home soon. When I get it, when I ordered, when it was produced, when it was shipped, when it was unloaded, when it was trucked to the dealer, doesn't matter.

What matters is that we have the opportunity to own the car many of us have dreamed of. If it arrives tomorrow, or in September, really doesn't concern me one way or another.

The point at which I would get upset is when those that have preordered, with valid orders through dealers that have sufficient allotments, and the cars aren't produced by Third Quarter, (which has all been stated up front many times).

I will have my car, ordered the way I wanted it, priced the way I expected for a new release. And it will be as fast, handle as well, and provide me with the pleasure of driving I have only dreamed about until now.

Granted the OP should have put his topic in the complaint thread for sure.
You have guys who are complaining and rightfully so. Let us complain.

Look at it this way, do you think they would have added SAT production if we were silent? Do you think Fitzpatrick would have given a interview last week if we didn't complain? and now rumors of maybe a 2nd shift. You can choose to be silent that's cool, just don't call people whiners.
