Im 99% sure thats it.
That's it.

These early orders are for customers only......and given the support of this and the other forum I post on, I won't be expecting any LOT cars for a while.

Now, lucky me - we may buy one for the dealership to own. I'm THINKING I'll be the one driving it & showing it for future local orders

orders are being taken for those making a purchase, filling out a contract, and picking the options & ordering the car....The car is still on for Feb 16th...so it won't arrive until late feb or March...those who order first obviously get the cars sooner....but I don't think we'll have long delays.

I think this just helps the factory order paint, parts & various options well in advance to avoid a restraint (meaning shortage, causing a delay on production) on a certain item.

I know this has prob been covered but when is the typical timeframe for ordering a car? I know this is a little different but is it feb-aug? I'm think of ordering last in the season once the hype (and gouging dies down).

gouging is only bad if you go to a bad dealer, scotty is selling at msrp (i think) and my dealer (Dave Smith in Idaho) is selling at 500 under invoice, why you ask? they both make thier money in volume sold not by selling a few cars for exorbatant prices. if you can Go to scotty, or dave smith or a local dealer that will sell at msrp or less. dealers that gouge need to be taught a lesson

Thats exactly what Im thinking also. GM doesnt want the same thing to happen to them that happened to Ford with the My Color option when the new mustangs came out.


You can order a car anytime you want if you dont like what is on the dealers lot. The wait will probably end up being around a month or two after the factory starts producing a good number of cars.

2-8 weeks from placing the order....it will arrive.

Let's watch the market & demand.....maybe by next summer we'll see a lot of prices near invoice. BUT NO ADDITIONAL DEALER MARK-UP!!!!!!

mark up varies from car to car...If they are competitive against Challenger, Mustang and their target Nissan.... it may be thin. I'd hate to even guess.

I'm a CAMARO LOVER not a fighter

but the non-chevy car buyer in me dislikes mark up....and sharing your mark up news and 75+ deposits for an unknown allocation....that just leads to disappointment...

i would say there might be some variance in msrp vs invoice because invoice may go up but msrp may not in an effort to continue moving cars in spite of increased costs that caused invoice to increase

small town dealers sell small volumes and in my experiance forget about the internet and telephone and that people are willing to drive long distances to buy cars so they want to stick it to people in the price

thats completely opposite for me, i live in a sorta-big town(edmond,ok) and all the dealers there are marking up. i am buying mine from the only chevy dealer in Alva,Ok-which is a very small town-for msrp

I mean; I'm really excited to know what the pricing will BE, and I guess it doesn't matter since I won't be able to buy until next summer/ fall at the earliest anyway.

But at the same time... so much hinges on pricing; it's almost like a love/hate excitement sort of thing because I think there will be a lot of dreams made or broken on this site by what GM decides to price it at.

It will also be a relief to just finally KNOW and stop all this endless speculation though! Thanks a million again Scotty for keeping us all in the loop
That's basically how it's going to be for me. My lease doesn't end until July of 09. So I'm doing my best to get some extra $ saved up. I'm also going to see what the difference in cost will be between a base SS, and a pretty loaded LT/RS. So I know how you are feeling.

ucla, try going to Baytown or down to T City where they sell to the working man, not the yuppies in dowtown. Only problem I see there is their current status after Ike.

I will definitely be contacting my dealer. I just hate that it makes me feel like they will assume I'm desperate when I contact them ahead of time and stuff.
