Total number of orders doesn't really matter, for now allocation matters. If you find a honest dealer with immediate allocation 8 to 12 weeks is a possibility but not a certainty. If you find a dealer with say 30 orders and they only get 4 a week it's gonna be 8 weeks before your order even moves. So there could be 25000 orders just depends on what's ordered where.

There is not a dealer I know that has 75 allocations up. He may be expecting 75 over the next few months, but not given 75 at one time

GM has said the back-order for the new Camaro is up to 19,000, and there are reports that the waiting time for delivery, depending on the region and model, runs to at least three months. Once it hits peak production of 440 Camaros a day at the end of May, the Oshawa plant will be producing 2,200 a week

this dealer has told me he has 75 for the whole year. he has taken 15 of those 75 and 9 cars has been shipped already. Im really confused about how the whole think works and dont know what to do. everyones telling me they have allocation and they can put the order in right away.
