  • Small Dealer Has 2/24 TPW

    Good news that a very small dealer (sells less than ten Corvettes a year), and which was told in August that they would be getting one C8 allocation in September, with one additional one the second month (pre-strike information) and getting their third allocation the third month (again a pre-strike communication), has confirmed to me that they their first month’s single allocation has a TPW as early as February 24th.

    This is good news for small dealers with very limited allocations, and more importantly for customers of those dealers.

    Expect this dealer to get their second allocation during one of the two December consensus, and the third one now being awarded to them in January.

      It is pre-sold to one of their repeat Corvette customers. . As are his next two allocations.

        With all due respect to our sponsors and the large dealerships, my small dealer is there for me providing personal service and reassurance. The receptionist addresses me by name, I can walk in unannounced and sit with my salesman or even the sales manager.
        Small dealerships have their own advantages, and apparently are not being penalized in the ordering process.

            My dealership could be considered small also. They had 4 allocations for September and I got picked up in the second round in September. # 3 with the dealer. They are close by and easy to do business with. I can text the salesman about status updates. Maybe once a month.
            Got my C7 from them and it was their first C7 to hit the lot. Came in on 10/4/13. Took it to a car show that evening and boy oh boy what a splash it made. Like for the next 6 months. Even today with all the C7’s out there I still don’t see that many on the road.

              We have dealt with local dealerships for 3 of our vettes (C6 and two C7). One major criteria was always that they had certified corvette techs to service the product they are selling. Once the sale is finalized, the service dept. is your best friend. Of course it is very important that the sales dept. rep. is honest and open to answer all questions by customer regarding price and allocations etc. We have maintained communication with both Sales and Service at all times and are known well by both.

                Gee. Wonder if its my dealer!! Sounds like it: "sells less than ten Corvettes a year", "pre-sold to one of their repeat Corvette customers". Kidding, I'm sure I would know if it was mine.

                "This is good news for small dealers with very limited allocations, and more importantly for customers of those dealers." You betcha. Very encouraging. Great to know the "smaller" ones are treated fairly in the process. Thanks for info. I think I'll pass this on to my sales person just for info.

                  My problem is that my medium sized dealership tells me nothing! No contact, no idea of where i stand on their list, no idea of when my order will be placed, etc! Therefore a backup order to a large dealer...

                    I called my local dealer and told them my interest and they said they'd get back to me ... "crickets"! Even when I signed up on Chevrolet Canada for news they sent me nothing! I had to call a dealer 190 KM's (118 Miles) from me to order my C8.

                        My small dealer had a Status 3000, TPW 2/10 buyer just back out of order. Black Z51 with all options; $95K ! Bigger dealers probably have a big list to offer up to; smaller dealers might have more exposure ... I am sure eventually someone will want the car.

                          Give your dealer Best Chev kudos for honesty and integrity. Hopefully you can buy a non-Corvette from them later.

                          Congrats on your C8 order soon being officially submitted by MacMulkin/picked up by GM.

                            Same here! And Service Tech is certified and super qualified and dedicated to our relatively small Corvete Community. I’m #1 on their C8 list and that gives me hope that maybe early summer delivery is possible.

                              I'm #1 on the list at Schumacher of Livingston NJ, down payment in July, and they are hopeful I'll have my car by April, despite it being a 1LT.
