    I am reminded of the 1978 Indy Pace Car frenzy. People thought they would be rare collectors items. People bought them just to resell them, hoping to double their money (or more).

    The Wall Street Journal Classifieds had sellers offers, often ten or more ads per day.

    Then, it turned out, Chevrolet was going to make an Indy Pace Car for every Chevy dealer, and there were thousands of Chevy dealers.

      It's done guys. Went into Wilson Niblett Motors (Canada's largest Corvette dealer) in the Toronto area and laid down my $5000 deposit on a C8 allocation. Now the wait begins...

          I believe that Wilson got overtaken by my dealer, Brian Cullen, #1 selling dealer in Canada they claim, and did switch to this banner this year, but who knows? I'm #3 on their list. Does Wilson have a list? It will be interesting for us to compare notes when order time draws near. Any other Canadians here?

              That's the thing with these dealers. They all make the claim, but how do we really know? I was told they got 38 allocations for the C7 and that they are expecting a minimum of 38 but possibly more for the C8. Yes, they have a list, they claim i'm number 18 on it but I honestly don't know if I believe that but they did say I will be in the first run for sure.
              As to delivery, he did tell me the factory would most likely deliver during the winter months but if they did they would keep it in their heated storage facility until the winter is over. I'm not expecting mine till at least April 2020.

                  I see that they don't claim to be #1 in sales, just #1.

                  I don't know how many Cullen sold, but I do know that they had over 30 in stock over the winter, then put in an order for another 23 in March.

                  The demographics of the Niagara region are just about perfect for a Corvette dealer. Flocks of exiles from Toronto, Mississauga and Oakville with money to burn after selling their overpriced real estate and settling here. Like me.

                    Doesn't really matter to me just as long as I get my car... lol. I'll be servicing it at my local dealer anyway.

                      Congratulations Sparro, I've been tempted to check out Niblett if the local dealers don't pan out. Did Niblett agree to sell at MSRP?

                        Calgary here. I put my C8 deposit down in March 2015 and I am #1 on their list. I was one of the first retail C7 Z06 deliveries in Canada so I am confident to have my C8 in spring 2020. My understanding is GM does not ship vettes to Canada until March so I expect that will be the earliest we will see the C8 north of the border.

                          You're ahead of me. My deposit was Feb '18 but given the dealers volume I'm OK with being #3. It will be interesting for us to compare schedules later. I'm really after a convertible, so depending on their manufacturing plan I could be later. Hoping the reveal includes info on the 'vert.

                              Put down my deposit last Friday and am numero uno on my local dealer list. They promised me the first one they can get. Not sure what their allocation will be. Now the wait REALLY begins !!!

                                Welcome to the forum vettekat. CONGRATULATIONS on getting onto your dealer’s list as their # 1. You sure are right, that now the waiting begins; I personally understand, and at day # 1,563 since our deposit went in.



                                And while we are counting, LOL, only 66 days until its reveal.

                                Glad you joined us!
