Question Controlled Allocation

I've ordered my 2LT Black on Black with RS back in late May and I'm STILL at 1100 !! Waiting anxiously, I called hit up my dealer for an update and he told me I have 20 orders still ahead of me (I came in at about 35 of 35). But he did tell me that "Controlled Allocation" is over in August so they might be earning more Camaros.

So anyone know exactly what the hell "Controlled Allocation" is? And now that it's over what does that mean for yours truly?

Why not just cancel your order and use one of the dealers on here? Regardless of an allocation change your so far in line, your several months away more than likely from taking the first step. A few dealers on here post with ability to take weekly orders that will receive immediate allocation. That means you would automatically go to 2000 status and then hurry right along. This username, BeckyD@RodgersChevrolet seems to get a lot of orders and other people really reccomend her.

Yeah, I've been trying to find one in the area that accepts Suppliers disc, or even MSRP but that's slim to none in this area (my current dealer does MSRP). And he was very honest when I started; he did tell me he had no idea how soon, but he would guess 9months.

But anyhoo, honest or no honest I'm dying here and would love to have one by November. Any ideas on how to find these dealers that could get me to 2000 fast? I've been searching all over the forums, but I guess in the wrong places.

Wow the 1st link you sent me, the guy is in VA Beach (2 hour drive for me) and he says the average wait is around 8-10 weeks for delivery. MAN! I'm all over this one. If I get this before November I'm gonna make you Mayor!



Thanks a Mill

I personally would recommend Anna Bearinger at Sparta Chevy in Michigan, she's already got me a few cars for people looking NOW. MSRP and discounts. Oh so many unclaimed cars coming in, and available allocation.

You just tell her Camaro Scotty sent you.

Currently the allocation is based on two factors: (1) on your Chevrolet retail sales (both cars and trucks) over the twelve months ending August 2008; and (2) Mustang registrations for the twelve months ending June 2008 in your DMA. The guide covers anticipated Camaro Coupe production from the start of regular production (currently scheduled for mid-February 2009) through approximately Q3 2009. As always with a vehicle launch, these guide figures are not an assurance as to future production, but are issued to you only for planning purposes. Given the vagaries of scheduling production, and the possibility of subsequently developing constraints or other business factors, we cannot make any firm commitments at this early stage.

I am in the DC area and ordered at Oursiman Chevy in Rockville. I spoke tohim today and I think they still may have an allocation. Talk to Bill Shenberger and tell him Jean Pierre sent you.

The only thing is they would not honor my Credit Union discount but did sell at MSRP.

Oh yeah, you can order from wherever the heck you'd like. That's the game I'm playing now (Whoever can come up with the gold 1st). Only thing is you'll probably have to pay the taxes up front at your states DMV when you register it :(

Let me give you a word of CAUTION on Drop ships....

The "drop ship" delivery is only as good as the receiving dealer....If they weren't easy to work with to get you a car, don't expect much fun with them delivering a drop shipment. Also, if there are ANY issues with the delivery - damage etc....You now have two dealerships that have to work things out.

A dealer that agree'd to terms before my customers Camaro arrived "way up north" tried to tell my customer they had a $1000 fee that needed to be paid to them before delivery. How do you think that added to the excitment of waiting so long for a camaro?

I HIGHLY recommend that if you buy out of state with a great dealer, go get your car, or have it trucked to you from that dealer. it will be a much better experience!

Coming Soon (I hope)...

Well just had an interesting call with my dealer. Seems that they are getting 8 built this month and 8 allocations the following (I'm 14 in line now, so that would include me ). But since controlled allocation is over they may have a chance to bump up to 16 allocations this month, meaning I could see mine even sooner. But in the standard scenario he said even with what they have now, mine should be getting delivered by late October, latest (barring any GM holding).

Hmmm... Oddly placed call though. I just posted yesterday and get a easy solution from my dealer today Hmmm... Someone is paying close attention to Camaro5.

Anyhoo... I think I'm probably going to still keep doing a lil research for a backup. This guys been straight up with me from the jump, but it's this year or 2011 for me, I've only seen one on the road out here so far and it was a rental. This whole trip makes me fell like I'm in "Harold & Kumar go to the Chevy Dealer" . But it'll only feel like a partial victory if I see as many Camaro's as I see those Stangs on the road by time I get mine.

I am working with Anna from Sparta Chevy on placing an order for a new 2SS.

I am going to have the car transported to me once they receive it.

As I provided to her, Intercity Lines is one of the most professional transport companies that I have ever dealt with. They only have 100% enclosed "rolling garages" to get your car to you exactly as it was when it rolled onto thier carrier.

Not only do they offer the best service, but thier prices are amazing. They can transport from coast to coast for $1499.00 fully enclosed. I used them from a coast to coast move on a very expensive restored Camaro and it arrived in 7 days with not even a spec of dust on it. They quoted me only $850 to transport from Michigan to NY fully enclosed and insured.

If you need thier services call and ask for Jeff. They can be reached at www.intercitylines.com. This will really ease your worries if you are buying from out of state.

BTW - they are also the endorsed carrier for Barrett Jackson.

So I've heard that controlled allocation means they've changed the terms of what constituted them for their original allocation. So for example rather than whatever the original formula was (I've heard it was based on some mix of Vette's and Stangs sold in a dealer's district) they now base it on the number of Camaro orders in the dealer's location, which I'm pretty happy with.

Anyone else heard something like this?
