I suppose i'll be a dumbass and ask what is this area 51 deal- from what I can gather it is early VIN cars. What up with the "Area 51 survivor" thing?

Area 51 was where cars with QC holds on them were warehoused. My car spent close to 60 days there after it was built there before they shiped it.

You would know if you were in Area 51 or Area 13.

We were a group of pre-orders. We ordered our cars and put up the deposits in Oct of 08. Turns out we were a "marketing test". Anyway, we ordered first expecting to be the first to get our cars. But our cars all had issues and were QC'd for unknown reasons. Many folks who ordered way after we did got their cars, and it was a very frustrating ordeal. Mine was built the last week of March 09, but I did not get it until the end of June. We became close on this forum, all looking for our cars and not getting any answers from GM. The folks here like 2010SSRS and spastic squirrell helped us to maintain sanity by tracking our cars down for us, and could often give us info the dealer could not.

MercuryMan96, sorry you won't be bringing yours, but glad you're going in a rental. See you there.
