Some dealers are already making lists, some are even taking deposits.
I think it's silly to put money down this far ahead of time.

Wouldn't hurt to ask your local dealer, they may be making a list already.

Car won't be on lots until early 2009.

I asked my local dealer when I was looking at the new GMT's and he said and I quote "The new Camaro's will arrive in Fall of '08, and that's just 8 or 9 months away," I just turned away really quick so he couldn't see me laughing.....


I have asked several dealers and none are making lists in the Houston area, that I have found anyways....

LOL yeah some dealers are loopy.

No doubt alot of dealers will mark up these cars when they first come out.
I wish there was something GM could do about that, but they can't.

I wish you were my customer when I sold cars. I was batting a 1000 on EVERY single make model of GM, FORD, DODGE, TOYOTA, HONDA, HYUNDAI, LEXUS, NISSAN, PORSCHE, VOLVO, MERCEDES BENZ, BMW, VOLKSWAGEN, etc...I did not know, Ferrari, Lambo, Aston Martin, Bentley...but c'mon...lets get real here. You buy those cars you are NOT going to the typical dealer.

I had people come back to try and purposely try and stump me, but when you memorized the entire product portfolio it made it more fun. I mean I memorized frame thickness, rotor dimensions, springs rates etc....The cool thing was that OTHER dealerships would call my manager to get certain info answered quickly through me.

I think the most aggravating this of selling was UN-EDUCATING the misinformed. But that was years ago.

Anyway...enough of tooting my horn...

BTW...My general manager had numerous cars in Car Mags, Posters (in fact he owned the Olds Pace Car from the Poster. Cause it was HIS car they used.)
