Distance is kind of irrelevant isn't it? As long as it's not California...

$79 one way to Buffalo on Jet Blue. My dealer will still hold $500 over invoice for orders from Camaro5 members. PM me if you're interested and I'll check his allocation status in the morning.

Take his offer! And to answer your question really... no he is not lying. They find out their allocations month by month but he could guesstimate and be close. If he has got 5 the past few months, chances are he will get 5 again. You need to go in and find out how many people are at 1100 before you. That is very important. Really you should just go it and tell them to go pee up a rope and get your deposit back. Pleanty of dealers have open allocations now. You'd have the car in about 8 weeks or less with an open allocation. I did wait 4 weeks for my allocation but car came 6 weeks after I hit 2000!

Actually, they find out allocation weekly. Consensus (total monthly allocation) is done once a month.

I just received verification on my order that I have moved to 2000 ( today! ) on the second order I placed ( 6Aug 09 ) with a different dealer, because my first order which was placed May 28th is still at 1100. I just got back from officially cancelling the first order, got my deposit back ($500). When I told them to cancel my order because I have an allocation with another dealer, they then told me that they could move me up if I kept my order there. I said no thanks since I'm already at 2000. I can't believe that after three months they were just now willing to help me out by moving me up.
Anyways if you really want your car faster get with someone that can get you an allocation quicker and not require that much of a down payment. I only put down $500 at each dealer and both were reimburseable.
My dealer also is giving me the GM military discount and USAA $750 discount also. The good dealers are out there you just have to do some research to find them. The dealer I'm using now is in Weatherford, TX at Jerry's Chevrolet, which is about 15min from where I do my AF reserve duty.
Thanks to Viz for keeping me up to date with event status code whenever I asked for update.

Go some place else, at least he was honest with you and told you it wouldn't be until Christmas!
But DO NOT pay one penny over MSRP. There are lots on the ground right now. There is a Rally Yellow for list right around the corner from me now.

Talked to the inventory manager at my dealer. He can place your order next week- as in this upcoming week your order can already be placed and cruising to event code 2000 and beyond. How's that for quick?

one dealer in scarsdale, ny Curry tried to tell me they get $5000 to $10,000 over stickier.. i was like peace.. then they talking about $3000 over stickier. I was like no way.. Couple i talked to wanted over MSRP like $3,000
I ended up going to Paramus and got $200 under MSRP
going to look into that GM military discount.. didnt see it anywhere on GM website

+1. A dealer asked for a $5,000 deposit on a Challenger with no hope or promise of delivery. I got a 2LT/RS instead...and the Dodge dealer lost their franchise agreement in the Chrysler bankruptcy. HAHAHAHAHAHA~!!!!!!

Jerry Durant is a great guy. If you get to meet him, tell him "go mean green".

How do I know if the dealer really has open allocation or if he is just telling me he does to get the deal.
