My dealer called me last week and wanted to do the docs on the car as it is due in tomorrow at 09:30 on the rail I am sure they wanted to do the docs to close out the month and quarter, so I did. At least now the car/VIN is locked in to me and can not be sold out from under me.

You have to send us pictures as soon as you get it and also let us know if it is worth the wait. Its all I can think about. I have been told the ones for Canada will not be shipped to the dealers until the end of April or the begining of May. I guess I shouldn't rush as we received 15 cm of snow this weekend. Spring storm

Congrats.. but I'm pretty sure it's your dealer what wants the 6K over, not GM.

Pics should be rolling in soon...

Have a chance on a 2010 festival car, not sure what to do.
Paying over sticker for any car is not smart business or common sense in any fashion. Even if there were only 500 built you should still be able to buy it at window sticker MAX.

I speak from experience on the Corvette side of Chevrolet-We purchased out GT1 Corvette in June 2009 (original intent was to offer in two colors, yellow or black; three body styles, coupe, convertible and ZO6; with a maximum production of 100 cars in each color per body style-600 cars total). We paid invoice for our convertible. Final production was a total of 125 cars over all six options-our car is documented as being one of 10 yellow convertibles produced and is a one-of-a-kind car when options are considered.

I've got friends who regularly buy pace cars at invoice. It's all in finding the right dealer, and you have to start sooner rather than later. When you come to the "limited production car" party late, you end up having to pay more than window sticker if you aren't willing to work hard to find the sensible dealer.
