Cool Day one of order, and I'm already impatient...

Finally pulled the trigger and placed the order on a White 2SS, RS, w/ Inferno Orange Interior. Already can't wait! Probably won't get any sleep tonight drawing up my custom striping.

Got a good price and only $500 deposit. No getting suckered into that all important weatherproofing undercoat...in Texas...

Was told to expect 8-10 weeks for delivery. Getting a bit worried reading some of the bad order experiences. :( Looks like I'll be harrasing the poor salesperson until I get a submitted order number I can track.

He stated the dealership has allocations available, that he would submit the order to GM as soon as I left, and that he'd call me with the order number as soon as possible. Hoping for the best. I'll update with progress.

I'm new to the forum. Is posting the dealer/salesperson info appropriate? He seems like a straightforward guy, and the dealer doesn't have any hidden fee, make you wanna walk-away crap.

CAMARO!!!! Come to me!!!! I need you!!!!

Thank you for the reply.

In that case, I'm working with Gary Richards at Classic Chevrolet in Sugarland Texas. 281.243.1166. (EDIT - Accidentally put Grapevine the first time. Gary is in Sugarland/Houston)

Also, he warned me about possible GM changes in MSRP before the purchase is complete. Looks like he was right according to cjh1505's post. Good news is after test driving a 2LT, I welcome the $295 Rear Park Assist sensors. Don't want to bruise my baby learning how to drive her. May take a while with the low profile windows.

By all means, you can post where you ordered from, sure.

As enthusiasts who always try to help each other out, let us know HOW the dealer/salesman treats you. If it's a bad experience, we WANT to hear about it. If it's a good experience, let the others know who to buy from....and you can put something up in the Texas area forums letting other Houston folks know that "so and so" did you right.

We have a thread in the San Antonio section talking about dealers and where to go. We have EXCELLENT feedback and found two GREAT dealers in SA that go MSRP. So, help them out!

(but don't go putting it in every thread all over the board....that gets annoying...lol)

djthriller, for starters, WELCOME!! and welcome to the fold. 8-10 weeks is doable for sor sure IF he has an allocation with your name on it and puts in the order as you stated. I iknow mine did, as I knew the guy personally. That is the time frame he quotes his new customers WHEN he has an open allocation, so far, he has been right on the money. SO sit back, enjoy the site, find out TONS of stuff you never knew about your car and welcome to "the waiting game" :{D

Two things: stay on your dealer to make sure you get the allocation this month, or you'll be waiting. Secondly, use the bayed & tracking thread to manage the wait. My car was in QC hold for 45 days, but that shouldn't happen to most new orders. And last, sometimes ignorance is bliss, so if you use this site, you will know everything about your car before your dealer does (most likely) & I can tell you it is painful to wait four days while the car sits in a railyard in Detroit or something. So learn some coping skills. Good luck! The car is worth the wait!

be aware there is an allocation issue for 2SS dropping to 55% 9/31, so production will slow down a little on those models. (it is in another thread).

Get your work order # from the dealer (a six digit number/letter combo) once it is allocated so you can use the tracking thread to follow your car from initial order thru to shipping. You will be able to tell the dealer where your car is!

Welcome to the camaro 'borg'.

Dude, you can't sleep already?

At least you're in good hands with Classic in Grapevine. Feel free to "report" back to us but if they say they have allocation available this upcoming week, you will move from event code 1100 to 2000 and beyond by week's end.

Congrats on your order.

Accidentaly posted Gary Richards as being in Grapevine on my post. He's in Sugarland/Houston Texas.

Supposedly, haven't verified, but Classic Chevrolet in Grapevine may be out of allocations for the model year. One has to believe that a dealer that large has other ways of aquiring orders or shipments at least.

Only way Classic is out is if they back ordered on their allocations. A dealer does not know how many allocations they are getting in the future months, they are just told what allocations are coming up for the month.

One thing to do is please dont consistantly call the salesperson. It only makes it seem longer. And if the sales person is like me and has 8 orders in the system, it can get stressful for the him with 8 different people calling him. On top of that, remember the sales person doesn't get paid on your Camaro's until they are delivered, so they still have to make a paycheck for this month to. A good Sales person will check up with you weekly just to let you know whats going on with the Camaro.

Just got a voicemail that my order # is available. Missed call due to poor signal. TMobile...why have you forsaken me!

Unless I've just been lucky, Gary Richards at Classic Chevrolet Sugarland Texas (281-243-1166) is a good guy to call. They still have allocations available. I'll post the order number the second I receive it.

Good advice on not harrasing the salesperson. I bet some folks are driving them crazy. Thanks to this forum, I'll be able to get order status occasionally as I begin to have my weekly withdrawals.

Order #NNWK8N.

I've asked him to check on the priority of the order. I'm reading about how all this works after the fact. Hope to find that out on Monday.

Then, it's a waiting game. Can only hope I slide in nicely with dealer allocations and SS production quota and all that fun stuff.

Short and sweet, here's how it works:
You have a confirmation number, NNWK8N and are subsequently now at event code 1100. You will stay at event code 1100 until your dealer has allocation available and "tags" your car for production submission. When that happens, you will move to event code 2000 (and beyond). Don't make the mistake some are making and think that because you have a confirmation number that all is good. Your dealer seems on the up and up and you should be ok- just warning you and others not to celebrate until your dealer tags your car with available allocation and you've moved to event code 2000 and beyond. Unfortunately, 1100 means NOTHING. I'm not trying to rain on your parade- just trying to make sure you know what you're looking for.

Thanks again trm0002. I asked him about this today, and he said they have allocations, and the order should move along. He's been very responsive by email. I'll probably continue to check with him on a reasonable level till I get that magical 2000. Then, it's time to invite a few friends over for a little party.

I think I've found a coping method:

Order one accessory each week so that you have something to get excited about during your wait. The longer the wait, the more sweet accessories you'll have collected.

I'm going simple this week by ordering Interior LED Lights.

To each their own.

The wait definitely gets easier once you hit status 2000

Once you actually get your car..it is SOO awesome!

He is a 100% correct!! I ordered from Classic in Sugarland but i emailed my salesman so many times that he practicaly called and told me to stop and he said that he cant do anything and that my order was placed and i told him how come im not moving up and others that have ordered after me started to move already? (they ordered from diffrent dealers) and because i kept asking for updates every week i think he got annoyed and had my car tagged for production if i had sat and waited im pretty sure i wouldnt have moved for a good three weeks or even a month. I ordered on 9/14/09 and moved to status 2000 by 9/29/09. So ya, and BTW Welcome to
