    Is your exhaust installed yet? If so, how does it sound? Is it the regular or off road?

    How come your car is not on spastic squirrel?

    I did not want to post this on the forum as it is of interest only to the two of us and I certainly did not want to slam Classic.
    By the way, I am too old (68) to drive a 426HP M6. But, I do not care, I drive the heck out of it anyway.

    Now in walks Tommy Durant's little brother -- I call Jerrys of Weatherford and ask if they would have an allocation for me in September. They said that they guarantee an allocation for me. All this time I have been watching your order. I said to myself "Self, I bet AUTOBOTs order goes in in September". Well, the rest is history. I want to make it clear that I hold no ill feelings for Tommy Donahoo, it is just the way allocations are manipulated by any dealership order manager. It is a win-win for both of us. We both got our Camaros about the same time. I am happy for both for the us.

    Our Camaro story continued. By the way, Jude's Sales Manager was Ollie Dohahoo (Tommy Donahoo's father).
    Now back to my order. Gene said that I would not get my car until the fall because they do not have many allocations each month (about 3, I was told). I thought that I would wait until the first of August and see where I stood. I called Gene and he said the Tommy said that 4 people were ahead of me and I would not get an allocation until September. On August the 31st I checked with Tommy and he said FIVE were ahead of me. So I cancelled my order. Obviously, Tommy was putting people ahead of me. I think that Tommy was holding Gene's orders back for some reason (Gene usually won the top sales volume each month).

    This could get long, so I may break it into multiple messages.
    First - a little history of Classic Chevrolet of Granbury. Back in the 50s a local by the name of Julian "Jude" Durant bought the Chevrolet dealership in Granbury. He was very successful as people from Ft. Worth and surrounding areas bought from him. He had this dealership for decades (probably until he died).
    Jude had two sons - Tommy the oldest, and Jerry. Well Tommy took over the dealership. Jude's youngest brother worked at the dealership all his life. His name is Gene Durant ( he is the old skinny, tall guy at the desk at the North/East corner of the showroom). My family bought all of our vehicles from Gene, and I ordered my Camaro from Gene on 6-30-09. Do you notice that I ordered nearly 4 weeks before you did.
    You probably already know that Tommy owns all of the Classic dealerships across the US. The order manager is a different "Tommy" Donahoo.
    I will quit and pick up at this point in another message.

    Mine was built the same week that yours was. I got to the dealer 11-12-09. I have a somewhat interesting story about our orders, if you are interested.
