They don't know allocation, price, or all the info on the book yet. We got some of that before some of the dealers read it. Wait until Friday for more information.

Just shop around sounds like that dealer is a dud. Prob why he doesnt have any info cause he's a bum. I d tell him that he lost any of your future business and ask him how his sales were last quarter. Plenty of dealers out there that wanna sell cars.

That is what I am worried I will get out of my local dealer here. When I mentioned October 13 they had no idea what I was talking about. They did tell me that they would charge MSRP, though they also said that there are 5 or 6 people paying "a lot of money" to be first, which worries me. I am afraid the 13th will come and I won't be able to get one from them and I will be scrambling to find another dealer and end up not getting in on the first allotment.

The fact that he didn't know about October 13 kinda shows how good of a dealership that is...

Wow you guys dont give dealers a break you think dealers go onto chevy launch everyday to see if there is new news, no. They only way they will get the info is through a phone call, fax, or from the mail. Dealerships arn't die hard camaro fans and addicts like most of us and are not on here trying to find out new info.

Shouldn't they know by now though? It is my understanding that they should all have the booklets now, or is that an incorrect assumption?

I agree, they are supposed to be selling me the car, it shouldn't be the other way around.

Well either i hope GM sends them a book or emails the dealerships this info or they will be clueless to all of this until we go in there and give them there info and tell them to go to chevylaunch.com and log in. It could get ugly if that happens haha

If one dealer says that they don't know anything or says that every Camaro they are getting will go to their people, go to the next one. We often go into our dealership and fill them in on stuff that they don't know, especially about the Camaro...since we are enthusiasts and they aren't. This is your car and you are spending your hard earned money on it...buy from someone that wants your business and not just the closest dealer to you. Even if you have to go a bit out of your way to get it...think about the drive home!!!

My dealer did not know much about it, but he was cool. He asked what my source was and I said GM Camaro team at Indy bash. He said OK, be here Monday morning the 13th and we'll get it done, MSRP.

My dealer informed me that there are only certain dealerships who were given permission to do this, so all of you that are getting the "We had no idea about the 13th" from ya'lls dealers, that may be the reason why...just something to consider

sounds like your dealer is trying to make it sound like he is the only one who can order them

If you fully intened on buying a new Camaro, ORDER ONE no matter what your dealer tells you they are going to get or not get. How do you know what GM is basing the allocation on?

Cool, thanks. I assume that GM thinks that the bulk sold will be the V6?

I guess gas prices will play a large factor too. Are those LED tail lights?
