Bad news today

Well after hoping and praying and wishing really hard, I just received the call from the dealer telling me that my car is in the dead zone of Pontiac. This sucks I thought I would miss out on this because my vin number was high(5952) well I guess the camaro gods had other plans.

Now the count down begins.

2007- 300 Touring

thanks, I got a six pack patiently waiting for when I get home. Guess I need to go refill. Good thing is once its released it shouldn't take long to get to me as I'm only 1 and half hours away from Pontiac. Oh well I will just have to keep burning my wheels in my 400hp GTO

Also I don't expect it to be there too long. Hear me out on this.

So GM is sending all these cars to Pontiac to perform this recall although they could send them to the dealers and let the dealers handle them. Here is the kicker, I and a few people that work inside they company that are pretty high up on the corporate ladder believe that GM is holding all these pre-order Camaros there until after they file for bankrupty. Reason being, pre-orders are credited as sold orders. What this means is once they file for chapter 11 all the bad debt comes off their balance sheets.

So whats that got to do with anything you ask? EVERYTHING is the answer. Once the debt is off of the balance sheets and they start shipping all those cars they are holding that shows up as reveune and cash coming in, thus making the balance sheets appear strong and financiality viable. If you ask me thats a pretty smart move on GM's part if that's what they are doing. Showing high sales and money coming in right after filing looks very good and gives investors confidence.

Now feel free to poke holes if you can't see them doing this.
