1 year anniversary (March 16th)

I just thought it was amazing that we are approaching the 1 year anniversary of the 5th generation Camaro. I know that many of the Camaro5 members got their cars last Spring. Their cars are quickly approaching their
1st birthday.
Many of the early pre-orders got stuck in QC for an extended period of time. There were even guys that gave up their dreams because of it. But for the ones that stuck it out, it was definately worth the wait. My car sat in QC for about a month and a half and I didn't recieve it until early June. But I'm glad I didn't give up.

I wonder if GM is planning anything to celebrate the 5th generation's 1st birthday?

I placed my order on Nov. 17/08, the day they released Canadian pricing. My car was built on day one, Monday March 16th 2009, then straight into QC. Everybody was telling me to cancel my order, get your money back, you'll never get your car! Nobody had any faith that GM would pull through, but I would not listen them. Then 110 days later, Friday July 3rd, I finally got the call, my Camaro had arrived! Thank God I was home that day. My salesman said that I had waited long enough, and made sure I got to take it home the same day. So I have two dates to celebrate, 3 1/2 months apart, and no regrets for keeping the faith in GM. Keep up the good work guys.

Indeed. I went from "I will never order a first year issued car" to "Give me my Camaro before I choke you" attitude.

Go figure!

I was one of the lucky ones. I didn't order til Late January or maybe early Feb, I can't remember, but I got the car on June 1st. #9067 and the 57th in Alabama. Not too bad. I never complained because some of the guys had ordered months before me and still hadn't got theirs when I did. I felt crappy for them.

I got a ways to wait still for my one year B-day of the car, April 20 something, but it's been a really cool year.

AMAZING! Where has the year gone? Wasn't one of the early orders but, my quest to obtain a new Camaro began around this time last year. Ordered two months after production started.

Well unless you count the slowness! Glad we got that sorted out!



You know it's funny. This time last year people were saying GM was done. They said the Camaro was never gonna see the light of day. Now the Camaro is spanking the Mustang on a regular basis. GM is rebounding, and Toyota is going into it's own dark ages. Funny how different a year makes. Imagine what the next year will bring. Convertible... Z28...

That's an amazing story. I can only imagine how you felt waiting for your Camaro to arrive. And you get to celebrate your car's birthday in just a few weeks. That's pretty cool to have your car built on the first day of production.

There was alot more crazy sh*t to my story, but I wanted to keep it short, and I'ld rather forget about all the crap that I went through to finally get this amazing car. I really wanted to go to the meet & greet out in Oshawa so I could thank the production staff, but I had to work and wasn't able to make it. Maybe there will be some sort of event this year.
