Seriously, if you have money in a dealers hands, they are earning interest on your dough and it doesn't mean much at this point

lets find someone at the factory. . .lol. that will be the best bet for finding out when they are actually about to hit the showroom floors. well at least when they start production. once they start will can figure it out.

Exactly. If you don't mind the fact that they are earning interest on your money, it's all good. Of course, if they signed and agreement stating that you would get the first, second, third order and you think it's worth it, more power to you! Personally, I'll wait to place my order later on after everyone else gets in there and spends a few extra dollars.

And on the other point....the fbodfather set the record straight already on release dates. If you still think it's going to come out in 07 after what he said, well....okay. If you missed the post, here ya go....post 26

I'm going to wait it out b/c I really don't think if they make a ZL1 it will be in the first year. if I'm wrong oh well. but I plan to buy the top dog even if it's over 40k. as long it's only b/c of msrp over 40 no mark ups. I will not pay a mark up. already know a dealer that will work with me on that. lol.

That is not bad if it is fully refundable. Does it guarantee you a Camaro in any particular order or just gets you on a list? I guess I am confused about these lists. If you want a Z/28 Hugger Orange with black interior and x options, then what happens if the dealership doesn't get one with those exact specifications for months. They can place an order, but how long will it take Chevy to fulfill orders initially.

i am usually a big proponent about letting your money work for you by earning interest, but if you think about it, $1000 at 5% over the course of 2 years compounding daily will turn your $1000 into $1105 and some change. I guess it all depends on how much you are willing to forgo to ensure you get one of the first Camaros. To some, $105 may not be that much.

Like Ed Pepper said, GM is hoping to have 3 months of orders before any roll off the line. In other words, they release all available information, orders start coming in, and then they begin building. If you have money down and you are expecting to special order (which I believe 95% of us here will be doing), there shouldn't be a problem w/ getting anything you want. That is unless you are expecting GM to offer something and they don't come out with it...ie: hugger orange w/ black stripes and black interior combo.

Yeah, the interest statement is only thrown out there. Obviously the interest on a down payment isn't that much cash

I'll be ordering mine just how I want it

I have my name on a list already. The dealer has told me they are not going to take orders until they have build sheets and price lists. They have no idea when that will happen though.

I don't think it is necessarily a bad idea as long as 1) the money is completely refundable (which it is); 2) you are indeed guaranteed one within a specified time frame that you have agreed on and 3) Have agreed to a certain price you are willing to pay or have been guaranteed a price that is no more than the MSRP.

I will not be able to put a down payment till mid 2009 and if they tell me i have to wait in line a few months behind a few people thats fine with me, I can save even more money and make $1000 dollar payments here and there. I am still paying off my wild australian excursion, then im gonna save for exactly 24 months for the Camaro. I should be able to put down between 20 and 30 K by then.

Same as mine,
this just guaranteed me that I would be able to build my camaro, when they found out how many they would be allocated. I know weve said before" A down payment means nothing, until we know the options!" But I sure do love the feeling of knowing that I am the first in line at a major KC METRO dealer to get my hands on one.

Were either of you guaranteed a certain dollar amount over invoice or MSRP etc for the price?

UNFORTUNATELY I WAS, 2,500 OVER MSRP. I WENT IN THERE JUST BEFORE X -MAS, TO PICK UP A GIFT MY SALESMAN HAD BOUGHT ME, IT IS UP TO 7,500 OVER MSRP. BUT IT STATES RIGHT THERE ON MY RECEIPT THAT JUST 2,500 OVER MSRP, OR I CAN GET IT BACK OR USE IT TOWARD THE PURCHASE OF ANY OTHER VEHICLE.

Don't be one of those guys... I would ask for my money back and find a dealer who is not going to rip you off (there are many out there you just have to look). Tell your “salesman buddy” your going to buy elsewhere. If he laughs at you just state this “Customer for life, not a one time deal”. The average customer purchases 7 + new vehicles in there lifetime and most are from the same dealer. A good dealer realizes this and is willing to do most anything for you in order to keep you coming back…

I was first on my list and I was promised MSRP or below. I would say they have made a customer for life…

If that is the case, then I certainly wouldn't gave given that dealer my $1000 in an interest-free loan. I refuse to pay over MSRP for any car. Like TAG and KILLER said, you can find a dealer that values you as a customer more than a short term monetary gain. Not only will most people continue to buy their 7+ cars in a lifetime with that dealer, but they will recommend others to that dealer if they are treated right. Paying $2,500 over msrp is not being treated right. At the absolute most, you should have agreed to paying MSRP in addition to the $1000 (basically paying $1000 for the right to purchase one fo the first ones).

However, it is not my money.

I understand what you guys are saying, and perhaps I should consider asking for my down back. And looking elsewhere. I just got caught up in the moment, I put that money down before the camaro was ever a sure deal. So I will have to make a call and see what has been done, and how many other people are on the list.
