After talking with a dealer not too far away (but not the closest to me) that GMBuypower showed as having a V8 1SF - it turns out they have not even seen this vehicle yet.

So:
[My dumb question of the day]
What does showing "In Inventory" on GMBuypower really mean?

When I bought my CTS, I found the car I wanted at Capitol Cadillac in Lansing on gmbuypower and had my local dealer call to make a trade. They said they didn't have the car. The car kept showing up on gmbuypower, so I stopped at Capitol since it was near work. The sales rep said they didn't have the car - must have sold it. Then he suggested we take a ride in the golf cart "out back". Lo and behold, there are all of the CTSs that were on gmbuypower that the dealer hadn't checked into their inventory yet.

Once a vehicle is invoiced to a dealer (before it even ships), it is loaded into that dealers inventory. The STSs are shipping slow, so they are showing in inventory bu not there yet.
