Question When do you hope for delivery?

For those that have ordered:

Level the playing field: forget about the ecomony and delays. Knowing what we know today and knowing where you are on the list of allocated Camaros when do you reasonably hope to take delivery? I ask because I'm looking to the members for insight so I can realistically guage my own hopeful delivery timeframe for my 2SS/RS (I'm third on an allocation of 3).

Thanks

Well since I have to turn in my leased Honda Accord V6 on April 15th I hope it is before then. If I have to turn it in I will and ride a bike to work.

But hoping that GM can make 500 cars a day and I get mine in late March.

Mid April when spring is is in the air.

We need a poll,.... Who will be the First member to get their car. And maybe a prize should be added.

I see no reason why I don't get mine in early March and thats what I expect. I am 1st on the list and ordered mine on the morning of the 13th. If GM's figures about how many cars per day they can produce is real they have 13days between when the line rolls (Feb 16th) and March 1st, I can't imagine it could take that long for my car to make it down the line.

Watch now that I said that I'll probably get the damn thing in August.

I'm hoping to have mine by the end of March, because my current lease is up Mar 27th and I don't want to have to deal with a loaner. I also ordered mine on 10/13, 2nd at a dealer of 3, so I'm hoping constraints go in my favor.

I am wondering how the figure out which cars go where. Do they look at what was ordered first? Do certain dealers get a preference? Does anyone know how this is normally done?

Its almost impossible to figure out what order they will be produced. It all depends on what they build first and the availability of options. And I doubt all people will recieve thier cars in the order that they placed their order at the dealer.

You have to think that cars coming off the assembly line will be all grouped together. For instance the roofs are different - the ones with and w/o sunroofs - I had worked in the SAAB factory for two years in Sweden and the first runs were always cars w/o sunroofs. Then the factory would switch the dies and cut the panels with roofs (This happened until they ramped up and had a stamping machine to bang out just the roof and one for the non-roof models).

Now this might not be the case for the Camaro; nevertheless, it is very likely that a non-sunroof V6 car might come off the line first.

Also, color runs are all painted at once - So we might see the #1 colors (yellow?) come off the line first as well.

This is all speculative, but think how the factory builds cars. Has to be the most cost effective way. They have to see what is the #1 combo for those 3000+ pre-orders and take care of those customers first.

Just my 2 cents...

As long as I get my IOM 2SS by Spring!

As long as it's before or during early summer then I will be happy. I'm # 32 out of 67 and I ordered mine with a sunroof.....there's no telling when I will actually get delivery.....

I wish I knew for sure when I would get it...I think it might make waiting a little easier.

I'm hoping March. I'm #7 out of 10 at my dealer. I thought I read on these boards from Camaro Scotty that at the Indy event the allocated numbers that the dealers got on 10/13 were all they were getting for the first three months..so wouldn't that mean we (that ordered) shouldn't get them any later than May..right?

You would think that would be the case - lets all cross our fingers.

I'd be willing to bet that the initial production ones will be mostly SS models, split between hard tops and sunroofs according to order trends. Their own literature said "Camaro enthusiasts will seek out CAMARO", so why not fill their orders (I'd guess the bulk will be V8s) and get the free advertising from having thousands of CAMARO enthusiasts driving around in hot looking cars answering questions for those on the fence. These are cars they have already essentially sold, so they need maximum publicity to get people onto the lot to sell em one. Why do you think you have to tell em not to put Dealer badging on the car....It's free advertising for them, so they love it in much the same way that they love a bunch of happy enthusiasts driving around in their car.
