I think realistically, It may be next week before anyone receives a car.

COuld be sitting on a train somewhere, in a depot waiting to be sent to dealers, out on the road, etc. I think we should start seeing reports of them arriving at dealers soon.

I hope so for all you with VIN #'s.

Remember that SmallDealer said average ship time is ~20 days!

I like many being within 100 miles of the plant hope it does not take that long when indeed they do ship my car.

Right now I just want a call from my dealer that my Sly one has been shipped.
Or at the minimum hear that someone's Sly car has a VIN #.

So be patient and hope for the best.

You would think they would have been a little smarter with the first 1000.

But it appears that they are building cars to send out in a rush after they
finish the first 1000. Which sucks a little but I kind of understand, dealers
need cars to show to sell more at this point in time. Everyone who really
wants the car has already ordered it (they have us), now they want more!!! Greedy little :devil: 's

My prediction is that people like MCEB that are closer to the plant are going to see their cars first, probably beginning the second half of this week. The rest of us that have built cars with vins assigned probably not until the following week or the fourth week of August. Those without VINS of course may be later.

What concerns me is that we have no reports of cars being shipped from the plant (trucked) and no reports from dealers of anticipated delivery. Its my understanding dealers are invoiced just BEFORE cars are delivered (straight from my dealers mouth). With my dealer this is typically one to a few days before the vehicle is physically dropped. My dealer is contacting me as soon as they are invoiced (so I can get loan papers signed and insurance started).

It was. I was there when they told them that it was being custome delivered to their home on it's own truck.

I doubt the rest of us will get such special treatment! :lol:

I'm VIN 7 and the build week was July 18, yet my dealer shows its still GM property, not loaded or in transit. I know they can't deliver all at once but I thought maybe someone was aware of some transit activity (other than to Idaho). So much for the Columbus, Ohio express.

Wouldn't that be even more of a delay? If they really are building non first 1,000 cars before they finish producing the First 1,000 - those cars would just be sitting around collecting dust waiting to be shipped until after all First 1,000 go out.

Seems a bit silly to me...

What did GM say on Friday?
Surely someone asked when we could start expecting them at our dealers!

Patience! All in good time. Think about those of us that are many months away from getting ours. That should help you get through.

I know. Don't mean to be greedy. I thought everything was cool as far as the patience thing goes a couple of weeks ago, but surprisingly, the closer the time comes for me to be sitting in it, the more impatient I become!!! :willy:

Maybe, just maybe they are holding them all back so we all take delivery at the same time at a secret location!! Maybe?? They might be bluffing on production rates and BAM!! Here they all are. Maybe??

Yep, I'm sure I'll be the same way. some nights I wake up from a dream where I already have mine, and then I'm so disappointed when I realize it was just a dream. :cryin:
