Looks like GM might lose out on another order...MAYBE...no Mustang for me though...

I AM NOT GETTING THE LEGACY NOW...THAT IS ONLY IF THE CAMARO DOESN'T COME IN THE 8-10 WEEKS THAT I WAS PROMISED!!! Which is Early July!!

I have been waiting patiently for this car since the concept came out! But it's taking WAY too long...I was so close to buying the wife her Subaru Legacy she has been asking for...but as soon as I told her the Camaro was available to order...she let me have my car first...

But...I haven't heard a thing about my order and getting impatient...I can easily go to another dealer and buy on thats on the showroom floor...but I am NOT paying anything over sticker...and none seem to budge...(not in Cali anyways)

So I scheduled a test drive for this Saturday at my local Subaru dealer...the wife might get her car after all. I got an amazing deal on it...so I MIGHT bite on it.

2009 Subaru Legacy 2.5i Special Edition!

Man, giving up on the Camaro now is like saying "Megan Fox is taking too long fixing up her makeup for our date. I'm going to take my neighbor Edith out instead."

What a nice husband! Nice car! Hope it goes well on your test drive! It is a waiting game. I ordered on 4/27/09 and mine wont get ordered until next month. I have to wait and it is hard. We have plans to go to our house in Hawaii for a while so it will make the time fly by. Watch, it will come in while I am in Hawaii but our dealer is cool.

Hope you are happy with which ever car you get!

Thats what I was thinking

If your looking for a 4 door family wal-mart runner you should get a G8 or even a WRX least get something fun with 4 doors.

Guess it's one of those to each there own I've never liked how the subbie looks.

I've driven the 08 Legacy and I was impressed. I test drove a handful of cars when the wife was looking for a sedan...Subaru impressed me the most. Plus, for the price I'm getting this car...it's a steal! But its not for sure guys!!! This is IF the Camaro DOESN'T arrive by mid-July! No new car purchases till then!

EDIT: And for those who tell me I might buy it after all on Saturday...I won't lol...I'm a tough guy to sell.

That's what I'm saying...they told me "8-10 weeks"...but I've been hearing the opposite. So if its not here by mid-July...I'm moving on.

No disrespect, but you ordered it on April 25th... Surely you didn't think you'd have it by now did you?

That car you are about to buy...

Come on man. Stick it out with me. We ordered at about the same time! Lets RACE!

Witha name like Edith, there is a reason why she is still single.
