Who's buying a Camaro in the first six months of release?

With a lot of the naysaying and criticism, I'm just curious what peoples' plans are...so here we go with a poll...

I want mine right away but would like to have the HUD. I doubt I would buy the top dollar Z/28 anyway, as the RS/SS will fill my needs. Also, since I am waiting on the convertible, I probably just lied by saying yes! oh, yes! - oops!

Probably waiting at least six months after they come out. Or at least until they start showing up and sitting in dealer lots. (If that happens...lol)

Not me. As a general rule of thumb I do not purchase cars new. I will wait it out for someone else to buy it and decide that they can't afford the payment and take the initial 5-10k hit on depreciation. Then I will pull the trigger.

Yup, I'm buying RIGHT away. The local chevy dealer is owned buy a guy who grew up with my dad, so I don't have to put up with mark-ups and all of that BS. I'll probly be there when the first truckload arrives and look at the cars, then, if they don't have any with the options/trim level I want, I'll order one.

Have to see about the availability to start. I also want to actually drive one. I always have, before i buy it i mean. Now that i know the weight of the car, i really want to know how it feels first.

The very day I can actually put in writing an order with my name on it, I will do so. I don't care how long it takes the car to get to my dealer, but I will be placing an order the day orders are up and running.

I'm guessing somewhere around the end of Nov. Right?

I'm in... I don't need the HUD and I already have a buyer for my daily driver I have now ('02 Accord). So I'm ready, especially if they decide to SPEED IT UP SOME!!!

I would buy an SS/RS right away but because the HUD won't be availible till Dec 2009 I won't be buying until then. I plan on having the car for quite a while so it has to have everything I want.

HUD is cool, but I'm content with what they will offer at initial release.

I had fun driving a 1938 Pontiac with a three speed on the column and a starter pedal, with the only options being a heater and two brake lamps.

I think I will enjoy my Camaro with or without HUD.

I've decided that with dealer markups and such, I might have to wait until the HUD is available after six months and then order one..

Do a little homework, you'll find dealers willing to commit up front not to markup any Camaro.

I've found two, and one is a regular on this forum

I said wait 6 months, but just because I don't know if I'll be deployed or not. I got back in April, but rumors have it that we'll be back in the sandbox by Dec. I know I hate it! If I'm home I'll be placing my order ASAP. If not, that just means I'll be paying cash for mine. Either way it will be mine. Oh yes it will!!!

I will be buying as soon as I can, but am willing to wait long enough to get the deal that I want.
