Does "sales manager for chevy" mean your local dealership sales manager? Or an individual at Chevy corporate? Is "2 week timeline for orders on the z/28 to open up" another way to say orders can be spec'ed and placed in two weeks? And when, exactly, did this fellow say your Z/28 was going to be delivered?

Very cool! Jeremy Clarkson just tested one on Top Gear and loved it. The Stig put it in the #2 position on their list of timed track cars right behind a new Pagani H.

There are some long versions on YouTube of that segment of the show and some in-car videos of the lap he did for those that care. I tend to be an early adopter of very cool new cars, hence my interest in the Z/28 The two cars fully embody my favorite aphorisms- "Light is right" and "There is no replacement for displacement".

Don't want to hijack the thread, looking forward to OP response to my questions...

I'm an amateur photographer, would love to photograph your Z/28 just to see it in person. No charge.

Well, I would hope so. Not quite sure how much money he has but buying a car without knowing how much it is going to cost me is definitely out of my price range...

I'm hoping. I couldn't imagine people putting deposits down on a car they don't know the cost of.

Ah, as I suspected, the old "my local dealer told my father/mother/brother/cousin/etc..." story.

The only place the information changes everyday is on the interwebz, otherwise the facts have been the same since the info release in March.

I would be thrilled if what you think is going to happen, happens. But my point is that I think someone at your dealership is lying/mistaken/confused/uninformed, and that orders will not open up until at least December'ish.

The price you might pay is irrelevant and it doesn't matter to me what anyone pays for anything, so my apology if my post was interpreted that way. The negativity was on the claim of being able to place an order. I simply can't believe the sales manager at Chevy of Alvin TX knows something that nobody else does. My quick shave of the situation with Occam's razor says he is as full of sh*t as a Thanksgiving turkey.

It would be awesome if I'm wrong and will freely take a public lashing if so. Two weeks eh?
