Every dealer around me has had a ZL1 to sell. I thought all dealers could sell them No?

The 38th person that wants one and is financially capable of making said purchase. Oh, and the 39th, 40th, 41st, etc.

I didn't know that you can call a car that's sitting on dealer lots not just in show rooms exclusive because you can purchase it or see it outside in the rain. Exclusive but it's outside of dealer lots for anyone to buy.
The reality is, when a company like Chevrolet offers a car like the Camaro and the majority are sold in standard and typical form, most often with a V6 for power, those who step WAY UP to the model that will only be built so many times and in certain color schemes and with specific engine and specific interior bits and exterior bits and drive train bits... gets to be referred to as "exclusive." That's called life.

IF you had a ZL1, you'd probably also be much more successful. IF a frog had wings... it probably wouldn't bump its butt with every jump.

You're worth discussion here... witty, not stupid.

Look up "exclusive" and you'll almost instantly see that the definition includes a small group. We're not disagreeing on the meaning... you're "excluding" part of it!

http://www.oxforddictionaries.com/us...lish/exclusive
http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/exclusive
http://www.definitions.net/definition/exclusive
http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/exclusive
http://dictionary.cambridge.org/dict...om/exclusively


6 http://www.thefreedictionary.com/exclusively) different dictionaries and all of them agree with me. So it seems rather obvious, the 37 GT350R's will unquestionably meet the definition of "exclusive" by any thoughtful account. I'm very confident, if you read the definitions provided by 6 dictionaries, you'll agree w/ me. The Cambridge version will surely require you to type in the word.

Ford will limit all but 37 or fewer owners, worldwide. That's a pretty small number in a world of about 6,000,000,000. Just sayin' .

Just because dealers in the most populous state in the nation have them ... doesn't mean ALL dealers have them... damitman... what are you, 22? Get a friggin' clue already. Not all dealers sell cars, let alone performance versions! Any dealer may be able to order one, but it may also be on a pre-paid basis or one they ordered in a swap with another dealership. GM doesn't just send every dealer, every model.

The dealer nearest me, in Florida, has only 7 Camaros in stock and... ZERO has a V8 under hood! The most expensive is nearly 38k MSRP. None is a 1LE, or even SS, let alone a ZL1 or Z/28.

I just checked the 5 nearest dealers to me and among them, there are 2 Z/28's and 2 ZL1's in stock or on the way. Of 100 Camaro's, 4% are high end and only 2% of each version makes up all that inventory. You think that's not fairly rare? Next, you'll say there's no rare Corvette.
