Why all the orders?

I see alot of people here waiting for delivery. Is this because your local dealers don't have them or because your ordering specific options? I picked mine up 2 days ago. the dealer here had 10 SS's and about 8 LTs in stock including a Transformers edition of both.

Probably people wanted personalized options.
Dealers tend to pick the same combos all the time.

I couldn't find a Transformers edition SS anywhere in 150 miles of where I live in Maryland.

I'm going to order so I get EXACTLY what I want. Spending that kind of scratch should mean no compromising. That and a lot of dealers load up on a lot of the extras that I just don't want. To each their own.

I'd imagine buying dealer stock will cost you more as well...I know in San Antonio you can get your ordered car for MSRP but dealer stock was more expensive...sort of that "got to have it now" price effect...or as dealers say..."market adjustment".

Terrible that they still are doing it...

I have my Camaro but if I was shopping for one now I wouldn't even pay MSRP. Dealers around here have Camaros sitting on their lots. I think it's got to be a buyers market now, especially with winter and the East Coast snowed in.
A Toyota dealers salesman here in Ct told me their sales are down by 80 a month now. You know if people are not buying Toyotas, they can't be standing in line to buy the new Camaro. Just my thoughts.

Well the lots weren't full with them back in spring and early summer. Waited 4 months for mine but it came as I wanted it.

I was lucky that a local dealer had exactly what I wanted. Walked in on a Thu night and drove away with my car the next day!

The Camaro tends to be a very personal car that people get attached to.


I stopped by one of our local dealerships that had about 7 or 8 on the lot. I asked if production was finally meeting demand. Their answer was -- "no, we have a few on the lot but everyone wants to order one how they want it." They had 72 of them on order.

If I were ordering now, I would still put in a custom order. My pickup truck -- I got that off the lot.

My dealer didn't have a 2SS on the lot and couldn't find one in the color I wanted with the options I wanted within 200 miles.

There were many in stock around me, but none close to what I wanted. I traveled to Indianapolis, about an hour and a half away, and they had so many to choose from. There were many dealers there that had so many to choose from. I found the one exactly like I wanted it. I paid sticker for it, but was able to get more out of my trade than they were offering here. I think that the dealer is a bigger one, because they seem to have each color in SS and LT. Some were auto, some were manual.

I couldn't find one 1LT CGM with conv package and RS pack between camaroscotty, DE, NJ, PA and NC. That's why I ordered.

And... Winter here so waiting is no problem. It will still be here sooner than if I were to settle for dealer stock in the spring.

Lots of automatic and lots of the black leather interior. I want a manual with the beige interior hence had to order.
Cheers

The problem here was that the dealerships may only have one or two in stock. And its never what you want, they load the car up with every option possible and then still mark it up an extra 10K. I wasnt about to pay 56K for my car when I was able to order the one I wanted from a dealer not 20 miles away for MSRP.

Pretty sure thats an ordered part anyway.

But i ordered mine because I do not like taking one off the lot. Plain and simple. Easier to address why something could be wrong if you know it wasn't there to begin with.
