Could he have been more clear he said both will be available at start-up! Not weeks, but at start-up, this is why rumors just keep swirling around here.

Guys, dealers know the V8 will be high demand. I am going to make a speculation, the statement you are about to read is merely MY opinion, not necessarily yours.

SPECULATION: They (some) are trying to convey an artificially low supply, therefore increased profits on "dealer" markup. The consumer will think "I better buy it at whatever price, the dealer was lucky to get this one therefore I better get it". This is one of the reasons people don't like car salesmen.

lol that's not merely speculation... That is the truth...

Yeah, I'm sure both will be coming out initially. And for those of you that do want the Camaro right away, you know what to do, either go in now and place a sales order, or when pricing, and official orders begin go and place your order.

I'm not sure what the big deal is anyways. Anyone getting their cars early, doesn't get to choose from as many options because some will not be available until mid year.

Unless, of course, they put in another line and perfectly time it to have a V6 and V8 Camaro come off both lines at the exact same time...

I'll stop now.

wellllll......actually we're building 'non-saleable' MVBs at the rate of perhaps a couple a week -- none have regular VINs.......some are V6 -- some are V8

The first saleable car -- VIN #1 -- will be an SS -- a Red one - we've put the order in and it will reside in the GM Historic Collection -- right next to the last 4th gen Camaro (VIN 22172467)which is also red.

--- after that? A Selection of V6 and V8.....we don't plan on 'constraining' at this point --

That is great news Scott! I have guys breathing down my neck for SS/RS. I think I have a few of them sold for Chevy, just a hunch.

So who gets Vin #2 and 3? What's the lowest VIN number that some lucky person ordering can get?

consumer report dot org says the Camaro will be available winter 2009...
http://onlocation.consumerreports.or...y&ID=506&PIC=2

true it WILL be available at that time, after first having been released in Spring 2009, right??? (March, like they previously stated???)

but it nearly scared the CRAP outta me when i almost misread the damn thing! lol *wheeew*

Don't believe anything that crap publication says. I bet they already have a review of the Camaro typed up and ready for publication that points out everything bad about it and how the camry or prius is a better buy.

I'd place a good bet that Barrett-Jackson is right near if not at the very top of that list.
