there's a few of us here in hawaii that know what our VINs are. and we know all our cars were shipped right around the same time, (late may early june)ish. the manager at the dealership i ordered from said my car is at event code 4800, that was last week friday. now we have no clue where the cars are due to the shipping across the ocean issue. is there anybody that could help figure out where my car is? i want to know if it's still docked on the west coast, if it was boarded on to a ship, or maybe with luck already here in hawaii. if anybody can help me, PM me and i'll give you the information you need to track. thanks

Really? LOL! Small world. Actually I ordered a Black RS/2SS. I ordered my car on May 10th in Hudson and it went to Broadcast June 5th. When did you order yours?
I think the guy we ordered from is good, just maybe a bit overly optimistic as he was leading us to believe we'd have our car by July. I don't see that happening since it hasn't even gone into production yet. But, if for some miracle he's right, I'll eat my words and sing his praises here like crazy.

I too sat in the SIM in the showroom and they tried to sell it to me, but what a mess that was, plus the car had some scuffs on the inside, so I declined, I wonder now if I did the right thing. I have been dealing with the guy that actually orders the cars. My salesman was so annoying that I did not get the one on the floor. I won't deal with him anymore, only the manager. He swears my car is built and in QC......I really hope he is telling us the truth.

What dealer did you order through ? I've been playing the game with Autoway on 19 .... Took 2 weeks to get an answer if my order was in their system. I still don't have any kind of conformation of an order sheet or printout of anything. I too hate playing this game.

If any of you have ordered your Camaro this year and are already at 3400 or above, you are very fortunate..... I ordered mine 11-4-08 and am still only at 3400!!! I just talked to someone today here in town, and he said he had to wait 8 weeks, poor guy..... I still don't understand what is going on? My dealer only had 6 allocated and I am number 4. He received #3 about 3 weeks ago and said I should have mine by end of July, we'll see. I don't understand how people are getting theirs soooo much faster?

I got an e-mail today saying my order was in. They gave me a production week, but I don't know if that was an estimate or what. I know they just accepted the order yesterday (2000) so I don't see how I could be at 3300 already.

Anyone have any insight?

You did the right thing. I know it'll be worth the wait! Besides, we aren't that far behind others that placed their order before we did. Everytime I start getting really impatient I find a thread on here of someone else that ordered before me that's in the same boat. Makes me feel better, though I am sure it makes them unhappy to see everyone else getting their car.

I have been speaking with the inventory manager there. But, ever since he said it was built and I couldn't get a vin number from him I have been on the phone to GM's customer service. From what customer service told me, my car is "in line" to get on the production line though they couldn't at the time give me a timeline . I thought I'd call GM again tomorrow (Tues) and see if it's made it to the production line yet since it's been a week since I last called. If it has been put into production, I should be able to get the inventory manager to give me a vin. If GM customer service still tells me the same story, then I give and won't bother calling anyone till after the plant comes back from their vacation.

UPDATE- I just checked with GM customer service and my car has just hit the production line! I am soooo happy!!! Ginnalou, have you checked on yours? I know you ordered yours only a few days after me.

I know it is frustrating as their doesn't seem to be a real rhyme or reason as to when the cars or produced and delivered. I ordered one back in October and it turns out the place I ordered from never got any allocations, so I just reordered in May. Ugh! But, this car will be worth it!

Okay this sounds a bit to familiar to me. I ordered a camero back in October from a dealer, who all the way up until the unvailing of the 2010 car assured me that my car was ordered. DH and I were the second at the dealership to order and even had to tell the salesman what was being offered on the car etc., so trust me he knew who we are and the fact that we called every month to check on the status. But, it turns out the car was never ordered.

May 9th, I finally checked with another dealer who is famailar with their inventory and they told me the place I ordered from did not get any allocations. The new place I ordered from gave me a order number, a print out and took a deposit. If Autoway has not done that, I'd say don't waste any more time and go somewhere else.

Your dealer must be blind. If he knows that your event code is 3800, then he should see your VIN right next to it.

Forgive my not catching this before elsewhere (I'm sure this is not the first time the info on the 800# has been posted), but at what status does your car need to be at before they can look up info on your order, and what info do you need to provide them for them to look it up?

My salesman at Classic will look it up for me when I call him, but what can I say, I feel bad about calling him every week or two for updates when I know it wont be here for a while still, and I'm too anxious not to

Thank you!

They should be able to look it up at any time. All you need is your 6-digit alpha-numeric WORKBENCH confirmation number. i.e. NGSW6T as shown in mine above.

The database is showing a VIN of almost 23,000 and it was an R6P order. Does this mean it was a pre-order and might have been bayed for months because of a problem and now has a high VIN number? I don't want one of the first 15,000 Camaros made because of the problems that I'm hearing about in the other threads.

Secondly, the window sticker is showing it has no spare tire. Don't they all have spares? It's a 2SS/RS with polished rims. Below is from the window sticker.

DISCOUNT OPTION PACKAGE
TIRE & WHEEL SPARE - DELETE
TIRE SEALANT & INFLATOR KIT IN PLACE OF SPARE TIRE

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
No, the VIN isn't issued till the car is built so 23,000 is up there. R6P means it may already be spoken for unless the original pre-orderer bailed on it.
Negative on the spare tire; that's an option.

Hey small world; I ordered a 2ltrs from Castriota on 5-15-09, they still had the SIM in the showroom, didn't try to sell me that one, just took order and deposit. the salesman said 6 to 8 weeks but could be sooner. had to order th 6, no more 8's available to order. They won;t give me any straight answer (or anything I feel comfortable with), was told 6-9-09 the car was built and in guality control will have it by the first of july. Then 6-26-09 at least another month, finds out its not even built yet. I really don't have a problem with the amount of time to get it, just don't lie to me,,, Anyway guess there are a few of us in the same boat, from the same dealer. Good luck to all.

Your good!!
DH asked the inventory manager about that and he said it is the their inventory that comes from GM for their built cars. Every morning they have to have some poor guy go into their inventory system and pull out these cars so they don't get calls on them all day long with people thinking they are avialable to purchase. They better not give my car away to someone else! LOL!

I do know my car is built, my dealer just has a strange process they do where they don't give you the vin number until the car gets on the rail car, that way the dealership doesn't have to pay for the car right away or something like that.

Iam getting close now though! Wahoo! Hoping for the vin number next week!

No worries, unfortuanlty the plant is closed this week which is putting us all a bit behind on getting our cars. But, I bet your order is just waiting to get on the actaual assembly line. I think they have some sort of pre-production line. Your close. I was just there not to long ago, but GM finally said my car made it on the line last Thursday and I believe them.
My guess is I should be getting a call from the inventory manager next week to start the financing process. I guess they do it a little wierd at our dealership where the built cars actually get on the railcars to come down here to Florida before our dealership actually takes possesion of the vin numbers. Which I am assuming means that once we get called in to do the financing, the dealership has the vin number and possiably even the car in. Wouldn't that be cool. Makes it harder to track the event codes like everyone else is doing, but at this point if I can get my car by the end of July I'll be estatic.
Hoping to find out more on this next week if they call me. Anyway, crossing my fingers for you, maybe you'll get the news that your car is actually on the line and being assembled next week. I think you said you had a "in" at GM customer service, so maybe check with them next Tuesady and Thursday. For instance last Tuesday GM said I was were you are at in the process and then when I checked back on Thursday last week, bam-o it was on the line!

Small world in deed! LOL!
I am praying that I'll be getting the call to come into the dealership next week to do the financing and then I'll be able to better give you and Ginn a idea on the process. So far I ordered the day after mother's day and GM says my car is built. The inventory manager truely belives I'll have my car by the end of July, so maybe a bit over 8 weeks will be about right. If so, compared to where some people on here are in the process our orders are flying through. We'll see, but I am staying positive.
