I just placed my order w them this week and I'm frustrated at how the projected date went from "ehhh, 6-8 weeks is typical" during the sales process to "well, do to allocations it will be March or maybe April" once I put my money down.

They are typically only getting 2-3 allocations per month and I'm currently 3rd in line. And from reading here on the forum my understanding now is there are more granular allocations which could hold me up.

Any Atlanta area dealership guidance is appreciated.

Never mind, I see it. I ordered mine through Jim Ellis. Before I put my deposit down, I anticipated a 3 month delivery. If it gets here sooner, then great, if it gets here later, then that's fine too. Gives them a chance to work the bugs out.

I've had mine for nearly 3 months; VIN 03310 - for me, there were never any bugs to work out

@Duffy-Northpoint has 3 the last I checked, but I'd prefer to wait on what I want. If I don't get an allocation next week, I'll see what Thornton has in way of allocations.

I ordered my Crystal Red Vert with 2LT and Nav from Rick Hendricks on 10/24 and picked up at the Museum last Saturday (12/21). Last week Hendricks had several coupes and verts on their lot.

I ordered mine from Jim Ellis in June and because I wanted fully loaded car they kept moving me down the list. Every time I talked to them I was number 3. Finally I went on the internet and found a car just like what I ordered in FL and NH. I ordered it from from FL. It was delivered on Thanksgiving and loving it.

I guess the theme here is to keep looking nationwide for what you want sitting on a lot somewhere.

What's the best site for doing that?

Have you checked the websites of the major corvette dealers in the country? I don't know if there is a central place to look, but when I was looking for someone to order from (back in June), I just googled "Corvette dealers" and several popped up: Rick Conti, Kerbeck, etc... I eventually ordered from Rick Conti, and have been very happy ever since!

So, the deposit I put down at my local dealer, that's refundable?

Jim Ellis returned my deposit within 3 days of me canceling my order. Of course they had the wish that I would have waited but understood my desire not to wait another 3 months after waiting almost 6 months at that point.

Even though I ordered one and put a deposit down, I am still looking online as well. Unfortunately, I want one exactly to my specifications and there are none around anywhere.

I put an order in for the Z51. Z06 will be out of my price range unfortunately. Great seeing you on the same forums. Looks like we both have a great taste of cars!
