How long does it take a Camaro to get to Texas?

For those of you that were wondering how long it takes a Camaro to get to Texas from Canada. The answer is 2 days.

The next question is how long does it take a truck to bring a Camaro 17 miles from the rail yard to my dealership. I don't know yet, but I have been waiting 8 days so far.

Stay tuned and as soon as I have an answer, I will let you know.

I'm waiting for it to go to Reliable Chevrolet in Richardson, I was told he got some Camaros in today that were a day or two ahead of mine. I didn't know they could just sit in a rail yard. What are they waiting on?

If all goes well, I will pick up my car from the rail yard tomorrow.

Lesson I learned - the car doesn't have to sit at the rail yard.

BTW- I also saw a silver and yellow camaro sitting there.
Sorry to hear you waited so long with your car so closeby, but thanks for sharing your experience. Now I know if mine sits in the railyard for more than a day or two, I can have the dealership arrange for delivery there!

Mine is sitting in Ft. Worth right now. I've been waiting for it to get their for about two weeks. Now they just have to get to the dealership in Richardson which is about 40 miles away.

Well in my case it's almost 4 months. I have no reason to believe it won't be another 4.

My dealer told me that my del. date was 7/9. So here I am 9 days later and still waiting. I asked him ( my sales person ) if he could check to see if my car was in the railyard or still on the train. That was on the 13th, have not heard from him yet. I guess I will have to call tomorrow. He also told me that GM changed trucking companies again, I don't know if that is bs or not.

if y'all will be specific about where your cars are in this thread, I might be able to help, since I work for the Union Pacific in San Antonio and can usually get someone on the phone about shipping cars to destination

I thought the truckers have 72 hours to get the cars to the dealerships after the cars are off the train?
