I won't wait much longer for info

I ordered A 1SS auto, BA stereo, polished wheels, ice metalic silver, black interior @ 11:00am on 10/13/08. I have been on the phone 3 times with GM and they can not tell me when they will be building my car. Why did I bother to be there on day one? I am sick of not getting an answer. I am getting tempted to tell them to keep their car and to go test drive an SRT8 Challenger. Is any one else in this situation? All I want is an answer. I know that they have to let the celebrities jump over us regular folks in the line up but I do not want the car at the begining of a New England winter.

Contact you dealer...they are getting your money - have them answer your questions. GM's only promise PRIOR to day one, was that the cars sold in the pre-order would be delivered by September 2009. Other factors such as your place in line, the dealers estimated guide number allocation also come into play.

Yeah, stick with the dealer, they can give you more info than the GM phone rep. Did they get your order in the system right away?

Anyone else ordered on the 13th still sitting at '1100'?

Ordered on the 14th...(#4 of the dealers allocation)...I haven't heard anything. Although I just called my salesman and found out she's been sick (in and out of the hospital...of all the times to be doing that). So, I don't know what's going on. I've been trying to get a hold of her to pull my hurst off the order. Left a message with the manager, hopefully he'll get back to me soon.

I order on 10-28-08 and still at 1100. The way i look at it i am fixing to get the baddest car around. One that will turn heads,make jaws drop,make people point and stare, and best of all make Mustang owners choke when i blow them away. So even if i have to wait a little longer then i think i should or want to the wait is all worth it. Of course thats just my opinion...

2014 2LT/RS with spring edition package. Proud Litho Owner #28.

I spoke with my dealer and I am the number one priority and there are no constraints on my car and he still doesn't have any idea when it will be built. If I do not know by Tuesday, I will cancel my order and buy a real clean 2007 Vette that he has on his showroom floor for the same money as the 1SS. If this is how GM is going to treat people that took a chance on them staying in buisnees then I will opt out. There is enough aftermarket support for Vettes to not need GM.

THEy WILL NOT KNOW WHEN IT WILL GET BUILT UNTIL CHEVY SAYS THEY WILL PICK UP ONE OF THEIR ORDERS!

There are over 4,000 dealers and someone is #1 at every dealer...

Do what you gotta do.

I ordered on Oct 13, at 8:05am lol. They still can't give me any further information and I'm still sitting at 1100. I won't push it for a few weeks. I'd rather them take their time and get it right.
