Question How many 1st day orders

How many 1st day orders do you think dealers will take today? Including all the "pre orders" already taken.



Post up some guestimates...

I voted 0-5,000 because I think the enthusiasts are the minority for total projected Camaro sales, IMO.

Well, I was taking in account all the people who have already placed orders that can now be added into the system and dealers that may order all they are allocated to order.

How many chevrolet dealerships are there in the US? I've searched but haven't gotten a solid answer. I guess it's posible that some dealership didn't any allotment.

My local dealer says he got one. I'm third in line if I want to order.

I guessed between 5-10K.

Bob Lutz: "There's no doubt that a design-driven philosophy is the only one that will work. People who are not sensitive to design, people who don't care about vehicles, people who view a vehicle as an appliance, they just default to Toyota. We will never win that one."

0 - 5000, from what the dealer is telling me, and sitting at his desk for hours yesterday, getting no where. I assume the system wasn't ready for these orders. If it was and is, how do you get past entering customer info, without the system locking????

Good call to everybody that selected less than 5000.

Less than 3000 cars in 3 days. I personally thought sales would be stronger. It's still a good start.

I'm not that surprised...only real diehards were going to run out to order this early, prices were just announced, marketing hasn't been kicked into high gear yet...etc.

Also factor in that it's been a rough couple of weeks for the economy.

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