Well, that is in reference to the Corvette which didn't have the same release as the Camaro. But my guess is that when they do the January consensus (maybe suring the IDL), they will let dealers know what cars they should plan on receiving for the first month.

I'm thinking that the allocations that are out now are low-ball guesstimates for the first 7 months of production whereas consensus is pretty much guaranteed and much more accurate.

Yea, they said they could paint a single car rainbow colored if they felt like it.

I surmised that those are the most popular color combinations among the public so dealers are recommended to get those for their lots. Drive by a big dealership and what do you see? Grays, blacks and a few reds. That's why I'm sticking with rally yellow.

Can't argue with that. If you're like me, you'll enjoy yellow. Personally though, after the last 4 years with a Yellow Jacket GTO, I'm just yellowed out...

interesting that it took ~ a month and a half to get from preferenced to delivered. I thought it was less than that but not surprising. So I guess the "preferenced"/accepted one is what John Fitzpatrick was referring to when he said they'd begin being accepted late January/Early Feb. 2 weeks later would be "broadcast" (Feb 16th for the first cars) and out the door a few weeks later.

That car was the second Sky for us. The first was setting on the showroom floor, which we bought in July 06, was a 2.4l and the one we ordered was a Redline. This was after production was going at full speed, Sky, Solstice, and Opel GT's were produced from the same line. Now you can just go to any Saturn dealer and get a Sky of your choice.

The person who got the event codes worked for a Pontiac dealer. Was quite an exciting time to see each week where your car was at in the production process. I am sure the Camaro will be similar also.

Good Luck to the people that have ordered their Camaro's. Hope someone will get their event codes so they can watch the progress

Nobody's code will change until at least the first consensus which, at last I knew, was tentatively scheduled for either Feb 19th or Feb 26th.edit-> apparently Feb 6th per chevylaunch.com That is the date the dealers will know what they can (or can't) order that will be made in March. A month later, they'll find out what they can order to be made in April, etc, etc,.. Don't let anyone (except Fbodfather and maybe CamaroScotty) tell you anything different. Each dealer will only know once a month what they can order for the following month- i.e. just because they can get 4 cars in April does NOT mean they can guarantee you that they get another 4 in May.

Cool. I like to be wrong in a direction that benefits us. I mistakenly took what CamaroScotty wrote in the post below to mean that was the date of consensus.

IDL Follow up: Gears / V8 Production / Orders
Here is some things I can share with you (from Chevy):

1. GEARS - Only the V8 with manual has 3.45, all other engine trans combo feature 3.27 ratio. (Confirmed)

2. PRODUCTION - I never said we were constraining V8's. I did say we were receiving a high number and may at some point have to visit a constraint, but never said we are constraining SS models. Who knows, we may have to constrain V6s to begin production. Only time will tell...

3. ORDERS - When will the first SOLD order be pulled for production? - Tough to say because there are many variables. What I can tell you is that we'll do a consensus in February for March production. After consensus, the allocation will be divided into weeks, and the first dealer order submission (DOSP) should take place by either Feb 19 or 26 -- but neither date is guaranteed.

Is the Consensus going to be posted ( "hopefully" ) so we will know what they plan on making in March?? I hope so...so I can make sure my dealer isn't asleep at the wheel.
I hope this info is available to us.

My opinion...
No, dealer only information. If the consensus is indeed Feb 6th, you should be able to call your dealer the next day and find out what Chevy is going to allow him to order for March- maybe V6, maybe V8, maybe both, any constraints (unavailability)-. It's then entirely his choice on how to fill the orders available to him. I keep telling people the most important thing is trusting your dealer. They DO NOT have to fill the orders in any way other than what they want. They can do something as bold (and stupid) as take their first orders and order all lot cars and not fill any pre-orders. It's their choice. Gotta trust 'em...

The consensus basically tells dealers what they can expect to order the coming month. That should give us a good idea of how the start of production will go. The people who are in the first part of their dealers allotment should have a good idea of when they'll get their car. The IDL broadcast (currently for sometime in March) should clean up any loose ends as far as info goes.

Quick question since we are on the dealer question....my dealer says I am in slot #1, in his allocation of 3. One of the cars ordered is a V6. If I go see my dealer and ask him about this Feb. 6th date, is he going to have any clue what I am talking about?

To be clear, yall are saying, that they can submit whichever order they want first, either the 1, 2, or 3 allocation, right?

Are yall saying it would do me no good to go down there, and try to confirm that I am honestly in slot #1?

First Angela, they can only order what GM tells them they can have. GM may very well tell them they can only have a V6 in the first "lot" and that's the only car they're getting until the next consensus. Now the dealer has the choice whose V6 to order; the guy in slot 1 or slot 6 or a lot car or whatever.

That clears up some smoke for me, but....out of the 3 orders they have, only 1 person ordered a V6.....so what am I missing here???? The allocations aren't set in stone??? This is just lovely info here! If I missed a thread or something, I apologize....

Here's my understanding. In the first order period (first consensus) every dealer will get 2 cars. The first will be a v6 that does not count as part of their allotment. I don't even think they can option it out. GM will just be sending them a car that is supposed to go on the lot/showroom. The 2nd is of their choosing.

About the allocation rank... if the dealer says you are #1 out of three, that means that he is telling you the first car he can order will be yours (as long as he CAN order what you want, there might be constraints on your choice). But, there's no system preventing him from ordering a different car ahead of yours. He could order his own SS in front and there's nothing anyone but the dealer's management/ownership could do about it.

The number of TOTAL allocation was supposed to be set in stone as a minimum- in your dealer's case, 3. Like I said, on Feb 6th GM may tell your dealer they can have a V6, or they may tell them they can have a V8, or they may tell them they get none in the March production run. In that case it will be a whole month more before they know if and what they can order for the April production run. Get where I'm going?

You just have to trust that when GM finally tells your dealer that a V8 is available to them that they actually order yours.

Well, all this should be cleared up on 2/6, right??? I will have to go confirm all this stuff with them, if that is the case.

Thanks for laying it out for me
