spoke with 3 dealers

the one with 5 grand down said yes we are taking orders but not sure on msrp until they feel out the market when the cars hit. might charge me more but would return deposit. the other dealer was real small said he was only getting one at first and the car was sold to a rich guy who stores them at his house. 3rd dealer said no orders are being taking so they can test out the market and charge more because they love money.

the 3 dealers i like the most were closed so i will found out their deal and post at a later date.

This is why I am waiting probably till summer of 2010 to get a SS unless they say there making a Z-28 then I'll wait for that. I hate waiting but I know dealers are going to rape the first people that buy these great cars. In a couple of years you probably get them for under MSRP like most GM stuff.
I would never pay MSRP for a GM or pay a stupid dealer extra just because he so nice to sell me car..

Don't worry, I am right there with you...and many follow

I have a Dodge and Ford dealership right down the street and both stack prices on new vehicles. When the GT500 first came out it was pushing 60+ and the challenger at 50+...as much as I wish Chevy dealers would get some pride...a majority in my area will stack at LEAST 5k...It will be tough, but Ill have to play the waiting game until probably June or so..

Most dealers I've found are charging MSRP...If you really want one now, you just gotta call around and find those dealers, or order from a non-local dealer if you can't. OK, if you wait a year or 2, sure you'll get them at less than MSRP (maybe you'll save a couple grand), but the MSRP might also be higher at that point.

Wait - Do not pay MSRP!
I will be able to get the Camaro for invoice 6 month to a year later.

Or you could wait a few months and buy a demo from a dealer as they have to let them go at 5,000 miles which won't take long if it rides like they say it does.

I called the other 2 dealers out of the 3 that are near my house. The 1st dealer said they are charging 2500 hundred extra for the v6 and 5000 extra for the v8 as he was talking i told him the stock market just fell another 700 points. I said no thanks i thought msrp was plenty and i would be shopping around .
He said if more people won't pay extra then they will have to drop their prices.Called the other dealer he said msrp was what they will be selling the cars for i said cool be in sat to order.

Oh and the dealer with the markup had no orders placed so far. GOOD

The most precious commodity is time, not money. The wife of a guy at work died yesterday, in her mid-forties.

Life is short. Go ahead and wait if you want.
