I have had nightmares about a big hail storm passing over these giant parking lots that are holding all of the Camaros waiting to be shipped.

It's funny that over half the cars built haven't been delivered. That says something....

There's been literally hundreds or thousands of posts on this topic. Basically no, pre-orders do not have priority over regular orders. In addition to the one per dealer cars, not all dealers participated in the preordering and even those that did could still have put in non-preorders ahead of their preorders to make some extra cash.

I don't think pre-orders are getting priority.

Yeah look at how many of those were v6 dealer show cars that doesnt count as r6p status. Mine was the first preorder at the dealership, my tpw was 2 weeks ago and the #2 guys was a week b4 mine now according to the dealer my car, his car, and the dealer v6 are all on the same truck coming here. im vin 12397, he is like 10,000 something and the dealer car is even less than that.

My math: 3600 chevrolet dealers times two cars = 7200, 15,000+ pre-orders = 22200 cars, 500 CTF = 22700, so we are 2/3 of the way there. 400 cars a day by 22 days in June = 8800, so all preorders plus dealer cars done by end of June, Delivery??????????

GM allocates a certain amount of vehicles to each dealership based on their volume of sales. GM is obviously trying to lure in new customers for this Camaro. As a result there are thousands of stock allocation orders being produced before preorders. GM also sent a whole fleet to Avis rental car agency to try and lure in more buyers. If I could test drive a car at Avis and not the dealership then I can understand why they are doing this. It's all marketing when it comes down to it. Mine was built (3800) on 5-30-09 and I expect it in my driveway within 10 days. The waiting is killing me !

WOW! THATS ALOT OF MAROS THAT ARE SITTING AROUND SOMEWHERE,THEY SAY OVER 6,000 DELIVERD,I DONT THINK SO,WELL MAYBE COUNTING DEALER V-6 CARS,I DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHY G.M. IS NOT GETTING THESE CARS IN CUSTOMER HANDS AS SOON AS POSSIBLE,YOU WOULD THINK THEY WOULD CONTRACT MORE PEOPLE TO TRANSPORT THESE CARS SO THEY COULD COLLECT THE $$$$$ THAT THEY SO DESPERATLY NEED...I ORDERED MID DEC.08' AND FINALLY WENT TO EVENT 3000 ON MAY 14, AND HAVE A TPW OF JUNE 15,AND IT WILL TAKE LONGER TO BE DRIVING THE MARO THAN IT TOOK TO PRODUCE IT,HOPEFULLY IT DOES'NT TAKE 2 MONTHS TO GET IT ONCE IT IS BUILT...THAT JUST IS'NT GOOD BUSINESS...COME ON G.M. PROVE YOURSELVES,GET MORE HAULERS TO GET US OUR CARS,I HAVE SEEN A FEW PEOPLE GIVE UP AND GO TO A GT500 AND CHALLENGER AND G.M. DOES NOT NEED TO LOOSE CUSTOMERS IN THESE TIMES,GRANTED ITS A VERY NICE CAR BUT PEOPLE ARE GETTING IM-PATIENT WITH ALL THE ONES BUILT AND OTHERS GETTING THEM THAT ORDERED AS MUCH AS 4 MONTHS LATER THAN OTHERS...BEING IN BUSINESS FOR 100 YEARS A PERSON WOULD THINK G.M. HAS ALL THE TRANSPORTING OF VEHICLES FIGURED OUT BY NOW,.....JUST MY THOUGHTS ON THE SUBJECT.

GM Bankrupt!!! Sounds like they need a new way of marketing, maybe get them on the road to the pre-orders. With 2000 dealers closing, where are the 4000 camaros going? I'd like one please...

I thought dealers only got 1 (one) V6 dealer display car each? So that would be 3600 not 7200. I don't think the 500 CTF cars count either, as a lot if not all of those were pre-production cars. So my math says 3600+15000 pre-orders = 18600. I think by Mid-June were at that number if not sooner.

When I asked the dealer why my car was on their site and on autotrader, they said to generate sales. I just hope the sale they generate isnt my car!

after the initial one per dealer was announced they decided to make it two per dealer.
Also just heard on radio, from GM executive that HALF of production is now SOLD OUT. (Sean Hannity show around 4:50 PM)
