    Just curious, what is your job in the plant? Is that offer open to others like me who have been waiting a very long time?

    This is in line with what Crest told me. Possibly August delivery but don't expect it till September! Yippee! That is all good news to me.

    I will make sure and share the information when I get it in hand DC! Many thanks for the offer and just the fact that care enough to offer to help out is pretty damn cool in my book.

    Re: My Order is in Preliminary Stage

    Well, I don't really care to much to let people know what I do, because I just don't know if GM and my management would think that helping customers out with inside info is very cool. I can tell you that I'm an hourly person and I love our cars we build. I must be careful on what I put out here because this is not a normal function of any assembly plant. I don't give away secrets or anything like that so I don't think I can do any harm. As long as I'm not on a GM computer I don't think that they can do anything to me. Besides you would not believe how many cars I can sell just but giving a little special attention to someone I don't even know with there build. I do have more info on the antenna issue but that will have to wait. As for the cts build, we should start slow builds for saleable V's at the end of this month. It looks like we are going to be processing at least 100 v's by mid august. More later Thanks for buying our American Made Vehicles. You will like the CTS V's

    Re: My Order is in Preliminary Stage

    this is a very valuable update, thank you very much again.

    as far as the first 100, those will be next to impossible to get if you are not #1 on a dealer that will surely get an initial allocation (ex: Miami, etc.). but the fact that production may begin in August means there is a great chance of getting one in fall 2008 unless something creates a work stoppage.

    From my "inside" days, I can say that Miami usually gets cars first. Being #2 in Miami is better than being #1 in 99% of the country. This goes for all automakers.

    I've heard that before. Why is that?? I am here in West Palm Beach right now and have noticed lots of cars soon after intro more than other places. But, figured SoCal was even more early than here I guess.
