I don't know about everyone else, but I am going crazy waiting for my car. I am planning on having it in December but hoping I get it in November. I have seen every video, read every review and article, been to every forum, etc. Never have I been so excited to purchase anything in my life.

Anyways, I am sure I am not the only one but damn this waiting is difficult.

My Car: Arctic White, Black Wheels, Z51, 2LT, +nav, exhaust, automatic (daily driver in dallas), black mirror and spoiler option, red seats, +mag ride, +carbon trim for interior

Congratulations! Sorry, each day between now and its arrival will feel like a week, but it will be worth it. Like your car; very is similar to how a friend of mine ordered his.

I hope our cars come in at the same time.
I think they will, I am in line right after you and I just spoke to the dealership today. They told me that as soon as they are able to put an order into the factory, mine will be on that list. He seemed confident that it was going to get placed soon so we will see.

May our wait be short. Have Conv. on order. I have #1 dealer placement, but that doesnt seem to make any differance with GM. I'm hoping for November delivery. I hoping for a Corvette Christmas, free of ice and snow.

Congrats, CyrusDH on your Vette purchase. Sounds like a great vehicle to get excited about. Nice color combo. I put an order in on mine (I live near Houston) and was told January. But it will be worth the wait, won't it? Are you doing a Museum delivery?
Mine will be: Crystal Red, Chrome Wheels, 2LT, +nav, exhaust, automatic, spoiler & grey seats with a museum delivery. I got the trickle charger too

hey all....
I am going beyond crazy myself. Sold my '98 Pace Car in June and now I am Vette-less! Haven't been without a Corvette in over 20 years! :eek: Half of me says "patience is a virtue" and the other half says "life is too short.... I need my C7 SOON!" :rolleyes:

I was told by my dealer, Stingray Chevrolet in Lakeland, Florida that they have quite a large allotment and they just placed 9 actual orders in this weeks consensus. He said that if he can order 10 coupes in the next consensus that my order should make it. Know one knows however when that next consensus will be, hopefully by the end of Sept.

My C7 will be: 3LT Crystal Red Coupe, Kalahari Interior, Chrome wheels, CF roof panel, Automatic, Dual mode Exhaust and R8C NCM delivery!

I got THE CALL last Friday at 4:58 pm. My C7 was picked up by the factory, my order was placed May 27th. My dealer has a small allocation (10 coupes 4 convertibles) and I was 8th coupe. I was shocked for two reasons, it was an odd pick up date as I thought the 2nd August Consensus was the 22nd and I got the call on the 29th and there was another coupe ahead of me (plus it was the first Consensus for convertibles and there was a vert ahead of me also). So I did not expect the call but I got it. I saw the change to "Queued For Production" on Tuesday and event code 2000, 2500 on Wednesday and 3000 today, Friday. I have no idea how long it will be now but I am using October 25th as my guesstimate for delivery, that's 8 weeks since the call. I really didn't expect to get picked up until second October Consensus. When my salesman called he said that the had their first convertible picked with me and their second C7 built, VIN ..09 was the first and, I believe ..17? Was the second one built. He then went on to say that 8, 9 and 10 still haven't been picked up, like a dummy I responded but "I'm number 8" and he said, "NO you're number 7". I shut up. It feels a lot different 1100 because I have a timeframe to work with, i'm using 8 weeks and their are more stages to go through, 2000, 2500, 3000, 3100, 3300, 3400 and 3800. Event wise it is much more crowded then the 98 days I spent at 1100. Congratulations to all that are ahead of me and to those behind, the call can come when you least expect it and I will do my part by getting my CRT Z51, MSRC and NPP wrapping me in 3LT Kalahari out of YOUR WAY!
