Chevy, oh Chevy! Why hast thou art forsaken me?

Postby PatMcSwain » Wed Jul 30, 2014 8:17 am

Ordered a 2014 Camaro Z/28 in January.
As we approach August, no car.
Still rotting in a field in Canada.
Units at dealers are marked up, and I don't pay over MSRP for anything.

I finally pulled the plug on it yesterday. Sadness.

So I took a look for another car, and today I pick up a car from the estate of the late Andy Granatelli.
It was the last car he bought before he died, his name is on the pink as original owner, SN 00011. I should run it in August.
Same price as the Z/28.

Sidebar -

If you are looking for a red no-ac Z/28 (only 5 built), then call Win Chevrolet (Carson) and ask. It's still "in transit", but only 7% of the cars are no AC units, so the dealers don't want them on their lot.

Note though, nobody at Win or GM HQ knows when (or if) it will ship. It's SN 384.

That's a shame; 2 z/28s in the region would have been awesome.

This is the second time GM has "lost" a car I ordered.
In 2002, I ordered a Camaro SS 1LE to replace my 2000 SS.
Same situation. It was built. And after that nobody at GM could give me an answer as to when it would ship.

In 2002, the 1LE car never arrived.

Nobody at GM could tell me the true status of the Z/28, so after 7 weeks with no answers, I just gave up.
If they could have told me that "it will ship on XX/XX/XX", I would have kept waiting.

Why is that? If it's built, they don't want it sitting around so cars usually ship pretty quickly.

As of today, it's been "waiting for rail" for 8 weeks.

I think there are too many unsold units at dealers, so they are holding them.
