Sorry to hear that...it certainly is your right.

WHEN the Camaro gets here, it will have overcome so much crap (like those who said it would never come back, the rise of the rice, gas prices, tree huggers and now all this doom and gloom of the economy falling apart).

I try and stay positive and look at it realistically...the government simply cannot afford to let GM go under...and if they do the economy will be so much worse that our Camaro's will be the least of our worries.

SO...as always, keep the faith...and support the economy, buy a Camaro!!!:patriot::patriot::patriot::thumbsup:

Weather :gm: gets a bailout or files for bankruptcy they will be here the next day. If you were buying a Saturn or a lesser model you might have something to worry about in a year or so. I believe if you let some sales people change how confident you are in :gm: and scare you enough to pull your deposit, one i dont think they are the right sales people for :gm: and two, you were not very die hard in the first place . Try going to another dealership and have faith in the greatest automaker in the WORLD!:5go:

ssoed,

Looks like the sales staff let you and the product they are selling down. GM is going to be around and the Camaro is going to be built.


mdennis10,

reps to you!

Well, GM doesn't have much to do with the success of a dealer. It could be the dealer is thinking about closing it's doors. In that case, you shouldn't abandon GM, you should call Camaro Scotty. :p

Myth: You are not a die hard GM fan to decide what's best for your own personal finances and pull a deposit on a GM car. Go all in and stay there no matter what happens.

Fact: Nobody knows the future. It's a gamble either way. Just because you're fiscally responsible and can be flexible enough to maintain yourself in the black (something the auto sector has a hard time with) doesn't necessarily mean you don't bleed GM blue.

I'm HOPING that sseod realizes later that his pulling of the deposit was a bad choice. But again, it's his wallet, so it's not our problem.

I'm a die hard GM fan, yet I presently have no order in for a Camaro. How is this possible with that sort of standard? If I wanted a hardtop, I'd have been there last month. But if GM said they were going into bankruptcy tomorrow, I'd have to think a bit before putting my hard-earned money on the line.

I'll likely buy one if it's offered even after bankruptsy. My big thing is I'm not putting money down on something I haven't at least gotten to take around the block.

My plan is to drive the first SS in my area, THEN order my Camaro the way I want it.

From someone who's been around a loooooooong time ... things have a way of working themselves out. I know it's hard not to be pesimistic with all the crap on tv and radio, but folks in this country have always pulled together (when it really counts, like now) and worked things out. Keep the faith.

Today I spoke with my dealer where I placed my order for a 2SS back in Oct. The sales staff was less than optimistic about the future of GM. I hate to say it but because of what has been said in the "Detroit 3" testimonies in Washingon this week and the attitude of my dealer, I pulled my $1000 deposit. This was one of the most painful things I've had to do in a while. I really really want that car!!! Hopefully things will change with GM so I can feel more confident giving them 35 grand. Good luck to those of you who stay the course in hopes of delivery this coming spring.
You should let GM or Chevy know who that dealer was. They're looking for places to make cuts (like allocations) and it sounds like your dealer might be a good place to start.

How much did the dealer want as a deposit?

I would look for another dealer as most require little, if any, deposit unless you're ordering something that's 'odd' .....

I work for a Chevy dealership, I sell Chevrolet, I believe in this company and product and this country. IF those salesmen did not make you feel great about your future Camaro, for that I am sorry, If you came to me I would tell you everything is fine, your not the first to come and say or be scared, I can tell you that when Camaro comes out it will set the world on fire and put a fire on the ass of the economy. just wait and give it time. It takes faith....

Sorry to see a fellow "SS buddy" on the emotional ropes...I think now is a good time to make my simple statement again, this time in THIS thread...only 5 words for you...

Congress will do something before December 31st, more than likely tap into the $25B already allocated to the Big 3 for "re-tooling". Then, when the new (and improved) Congress takes over January 20th, 2009, a long-term plan will surface. Am I the only one who noticed that GM's loan draws peak RIGHT BEFORE the 2010 Camaros come out, then taper off d-r-a-m-a-t-i-c-a-l-l-y after the LS, LT, and SSs hit the road (in March '09)? "Proof positive" our beloved Camaro will be GM's white knight!

if you can do it it would be the best thing in this credit crisis.

The thing with the original poster said hes pulling the money and not buying the Camaro. Why? This car is one of the top priorities of the day for GM and to this day has been a benchmark in quality. What your getting is what GM has been trying to do right for the last few years. If this car is like the new Malibu or the G8 or any of the newer cars..you have nothing to worry about..this car will hold up for the long haul and you will be proud.

Show your support in buying a GM product. We were all for getting the Camaro but now that we have a little one on the way had to go with a 4 door and a GP GXP fit the bill!

I plan on getting my G5 paid off ASAP (double..triple payments if possible). Then I might use it as a trade-in on a Camaro if my financial situation permits.

We'll see.
sounds like a good plan...stay away from doing any mods than...use the money for your loan payments. Just keep the car maintained and as perfect as possible.

It's tough right now with all of the doom and gloom surrounding us. Things may not be good, but if you want something, you need to support it. I just bought a CPO TrailBlazer this week. I'm confident in GM (that's why I've bought 3 GM's in less than a year) and I am looking forward to all of their future product. I might still be on the fence for the new Camaro, but I will be buying a Camaro in 2009 whether it be a 5th gen or my third 4th gen.

If only the public could stop buying into the media BS and realize that GM is not making cars like they did from the late 70's through the early 90's. This is a new era.
