The thing that throws me off is the tiny number of cars per dealer, but to put it in to perspective... during the podcast from yesterday they stated that there were roughly 3600 Chevy dealers in the U.S. So if for instance every dealer got 20, that is roughly 72% of the estimated 100k cars set for production.
Why would they limit production to 100k if there is demand for the car? I plan on ordering next summer. I really hope I don't have to wait until the end of 2009 to get my car.

I almost ordered mine yesterday but I wanted white so I was going to wait and order later. Now that it looks like most of the cars will be ordered by then I will be missing out. I wonder if I ordered today if white is even an option? Any thoughts???? I may have to do the Ice silver SS....

Thanks a heap!
Yeah, that's where I'm at, unfortunately. I'm pretty much ready to order, but I don't want to until I know I can get blue. :(

NO dealership will get ALL of their allocations in the first month or two.
If GM can produce 70,000 units in the first 8 months and all of the orders are filled by the delaers allocations, which they will be, the allocations will be spread across the production period.

Not a perfect spread, buit definitely not front loading one dealership and shorting others.

Go to chevylaunch.com - - some good reading there.
What I got out of it (and I am by no means an "insider"), my opinion only, is that the dealer will actually get the cars much in the same way the allocation percentage was figured out. For the dealership that was allocated 60 versus the dealer that was allocated 6, for every 6 vehicles the "60 guy" gets, the "6 guy" will get one. Even the "big guy" won't get ALL his cars first.

I agree with Pink,

It's gonna be hard to be so patient now that everyone is getting ordered up!

This will be the longest, hardest wait yet. But in the long run, we can muster up some bigger down payments.

What the hell are we gonna speculate now??

So true!!! Spent 30 minutes telling my wife about ordering and the lists and such. Then she hits me with two questions I hate to think about...

1. So how long til you get your convertible?
2. You gonna be checking that site every day still? What else could you possible need to know?

Guess the only thing left to do is call my dealer every day for the next year and ask him when I can get on the list for the convertible

Almost forgot the worst thing... A beautiful southern AZ day in March. "Hey look!!! Thats the new Camaro... I thought you were gonna get one of those."
Next day... Newspaper headline: "Tucson man drives car off cliff, wife says he was under a tremendous amount of stress"

Okay, I stopped at my Chevy dealer today, and to my relief, they knew what I was talking about and I didn't have to give a two hour long seminar on the Camaro.

Now here comes the weird part. They said that their allocation was FORTY Camaros, and 38 had already been ordered.

Is that even possible? It seemed like the trend was around 10 Camaros per dealer...

I was thinking that the guy just wanted me to order one...

Yes, it is possible. Which dealer you talking about? My dealer, Paddock, got 63, and Classic Chevy in Texas got 67. They are the top two that I know of.

It's Jeff Wyler Chevrolet in Eastgate, Ohio. They're a pretty high volume Chevy dealer, so I'm guessing that contributed to their high allocation. However, there are two Jeff Wyler Chevrolets, so I'm wondering if they combined their allocations together...

That's exactly correct! Most of the general public have no idea of the backlog that is being created now. For the next 5 months, orders will be coming in and not one car will be built.

Very unusual for GM to start production with such a large back order. Not a bad place to be for them but unfotunately, anyone thinking about going to the dealership for a test drive in the spring are only going tob be able to se us wave bye-bye as we pick up our cars.

NO. Unfortunately NOT true. While the dealers are taking our orders based on initial allocation, remember that the actual orders are not being "dropped" to the factory until December. At that time, the dealer CAN ORDER HIS OWN FIRST. If you are number one at this point and the dealer decides in December to order four for his lot, he has every right to move you to number five. Sucks; but someone correct me if I'm wrong- I'm 99% sure on this.

Well I hope someone chimes in as well because if that's the case then we are all left to the mercy of our dealers morals. I am going to call my dealer and let him know that if he bumps my car for anyone, he can go pound salt. As a matter of fact, I'm going to go back and write it in the sales contract.

If we are left to the mercy of our dealer's morals... then I'm good to go.

But this post is interesting.. in knowing how that works for the dealers.
