Thumbs down WTF?!?!

Ok, i know I don't live in an huge area with tons of people. (About 3 hours north of Pittsburgh,PA)

I contacted many local dealers today and these fools are F-ing clueless.

Here is what I sent to every dealer.

"Hello and good after noon.

I'm touching base with several local dealers to find out if you will be selling the 2010 Camaro for MSRP or less. Chevy just released the prices and opened up the system to place orders today. I am looking to put a deposit down on a 2SS-RS today. My second question is has your pre-orders for the Camaro exceeded you allocation alloted to you for the first shipment?

When you have a moment please get back to me.

-J"

Here are emails i got back!

Quote:
We are still awaiting info on ordering and pricing for the new Camaro. When we receive allocation to place our order I would be happy to contact you.

Jeremy, thanks for checking with seidle Chevy about the new 2010 Camaro. this car will be available to dealers in the spring of 2009 and will be limited production. We do not have any info as far as pricing and packages but we will e-mail you as soon as we get product information. thanks, Tom Seidle

Dear Jeremy,
Thank you for your request. We will probably not sell the new Camaro less than MSRP. We still have to research what we think the market will be on this car. I am sure they will be in short supply. Please feel free to call me personally with any additional questions. 800-676-0583 ext 7220.
Best regards,
Bill LaChance
GM Internet Manager

This is just ridiculous.

Anyone know a knowledgeable dealer around Pittsburgh?

seem to be hitting that here...I was #2 in a list at a dealer who told me that they'd be selling at MSRP...I spoke to him friday...seems that their allocation was only 2...and someone not on the list offered $1000 over MSRP, so I'm SOL.

So...I sent out an email to 6 other dealers...so far, 1 dealer is $5000 over MSRP, they have 1 available. 1 dealer is selling at MSRP, but has no idea what their allocation is and 1 other dealer said they usually don't markup, but has to ask his manager to make sure that's the case (and he doesn't have any info on allocation yet).

2010-2SS/RS/LS3/IBM/RP6: ECS-Paxton Supercharger / American Racing Headers & Exhaust / PFADT Suspension / DSS 9" 4.10 Rear / FOR SALE!

Call Superior Chevrolet in Decatur GA (678 999-6806), ask for Richard Lenox.
I just ordered one for me and one for my Pop. He has 2 allocations left.
He put in writing for me "Price sibject to MSRP as delivered or supplier pricing if available"
