Talking IM FIRST!!!

I just called my Chevy dealer and asked it they were up to speed about the ordering on Monday. He told me that they had a meeting about me yesterday and they agreed that I deserve the #1 spot on the order list! I have been bugging them for so long they said no one else deserved it. This is awesome! Monday is going to be the best day ever!

don't want to burst your bubble but just because you are first on the order list does not mean you will have the first Camaro to come in... I was 3rd on the list to order a Sky at my dealership but mine was the first to actually arrive there... It depends on what the production schedule is and what options you order...(I was lucky I got some insider info and found out what the first cars that were going to be produced were and ordered mine that way) I know some on the Sky Forum that were first on the list but because they ordered some options that were not available at start of production they got their cars later than others did.
I just don't want to see you get upset with GM or the dealer because your car, even though you were the first to order does not come in first... they cannot promise you will have the first one because they don't even know what will be the first to be produced.

Anyway it does mean you will get one faster than most will...
Congratulations... I am sure it will be worth the wait just like it was for me and my first Sky.

I’m “Numero Ono” at my dealer as well… :party0048: Actually I am the only one on the list as of right now. I got the call yesterday that my dealer received all the information and to come on down Monday so we can get me the first one in town. I am so excited about this you would not believe… Wait, I’m sure many of you can believe…

I'm #2, but I just got word from Camaro Scotty that his allocation was way under his estimates.

Surely, my dealer will be getting at least two!

I plan on getting out of my Cobalt lease using the GM "Pull Ahead" program, 6 months early with no penalty. That means I can get my Camaro in July.

Does anyone see any reason why I would have any reason to "order" a car prior to then? I assume the V6 LS Camaro should be produced in pretty good numbers by then.

Me too. Don't know allocation at my dealer yet though. I'm getting 2SS and I just don't expect that to be the first model on the line. So I will get it when I get it.

2010 5thgen, Save that best day ever for a few months. Think about how it will feel to drive your own. It willl be a day you never forget.

Congratulations!!!

I...WE...are very happy for you.

Skyman has a point...and I don't want to steal your thunder. There is a possibility that "your" car won't be made right away as they try to get a whole bunch of other identical orders out first. Just wanted to let you know. But, being first on the list is right.....now, don't let them get you for ANYTHING over MSRP!

yeah we already negotiated msrp. and im perfectly fine with that. they said there have been alot of guys just dumping money down on them so they would be first. im very pleased that they havent taken these guys over me.
but i guess when you buy 8 cars in 3 years from someone then you kinda get what you want.

We are #1 at ours as well and have been there for a while. There were previously 2 people ahead of us, but they both decided to hold out for the vert. During the IDLon Friday, the sales manager may have changed his mind tho. I think he's so excited about the whole thing that he may go ahead and order a coupe. If that happens....we will be pushed to #2. But out of 28, that's not bad at all!!

Killer - You are the ONLY one on your list? What is wrong with people in your area?

I spoke on the phone to a local dealer yesterday. On one hand it's good news. I am considered #2 for orders if I choose to go through them. The bad news is they say they ARE selling it over MSRP. Just not sure how much yet.

So I doubt I'll get to keep that nice #2 spot since I won't pay over MSRP (unless they said like $500, then I wouldn't care).

My other local dealer isn't accepting ANY orders until they have some for the lot. And another is allocated 12 with a $2500 markup.

And another has me as #15 on the list...

I may just have to resign myself to the fact that I won't have one til next fall or later.
