Default Delivered!!!

My car is finally here. I received a call this morning from my dealership and its confirmed it has a new home. Im going after work to see my new baby and hopefully drive it home today. The dealership doesnt have an invoice yet .
So I will go and sit in it and take pics. Now I really have to clean out my garage. Any takers?

Unless they are making something magic happen, you aren't taking her home today.

Keep us posted with pics. Congrats!

If I'm not mistaken, your dealer won't release the car to you until they have an invoice for it. I have no idea why this is but I seem to remember past cases where the same thing happened. It makes no sense to me since you already have an agreed-upon price that won't change once the invoice arrives. Maybe one of our forum dealers can chime in with clarification.

Because legally the dealer doesn't own it yet.

OP another posted their dealership said they received invoice about 4 hours after delivery. Did yours arrive this morning?

Do you have your VIN yet? If so send it to me and I'll see if I can't get the invoice for it.

This lack of invoicing is perplexing....usually GM invoices the dealer within days after a vin is established...

Of course GM will continue to **** off the customer again by letting a long awaited car come in and sit until they decide to do there paperwork....

GM should have started a dedicated web site just for the C7 launch that had all the updates and information in one spot. The poor "dealers" are useless and starting to wonder what there use is these days other them pulling the plastic off the seat and charging for the PDI....

If the factory had to deal with the customers directly they would better understand the passion behind Corvette and what the customer looks at as part of the "buying experience".

When are car shows up next week gets stalled because they can't take my $75,000 check I'm gonna be pissed.....
