Early Ordering Activity Surpasses the 5,000 mark!!

In just over a week, Chevrolet has received over 5,000 customer sold orders for the 2010 Camaro! We are extremely pleased with the initail response, and a little surprised with some of the early order configurations. For example, over a quarter of the orders submitted has one of the factory installed or LPO stripe packages. These early orders are providing a very unique insight on initial demand, and are closely being monitored within the orginization to ensure adequate material supply.


This was the message that dealers received this morning in the weekly "Hot Sheet"!!

very nice...bad economy and all.

not bad considering some dealers don't even know that orders are being taken or prices have been released...or that there even is a 5th gen camaro.

My "preferred" local dealer did not beleive me when I said pricing and ordering was to start on 10/13. They insisted January. They also planned on marking the car up.

I sent them an email with the info straight from Chevrolet. They never replied.

I actually just use them for service, but I've never bought a car from them as I've only lived in the area a little over a year. I won't buy a car from them due to their ignorance.

I never had a Flowbee cut, though my Mom would cut my hair with a Wahl trimmer.

That's pretty dang impressive to have over 5,000 orders for a car that won't start production for ~4 months in an economy like this.

Very nice to hear!

Any chance I'll be able to rest my arm on the driver's side door with the window open all the way without the weatherstripping cutting through it on this new Camaro?
God I hate that about my 4th Gen.

That's a new one. I must not have had the razorblade window option on mine.
