Default Impossible ? I hope not .....

I have a GM Workbench order already to go & hanging out in the GM limbo land somewhere for a SODP, 3ZR, ZTK, 7M. Dealer told me today that their allocation for this order may not come through for them, or me..... so I am onto the near impossible task of looking for a dealer that my have an open allocation that I can luck into.

Anybody got any leads or any dealers with openings please PM me............

Thanks.

call Tommy Jr. at MacMulkin, He will treat you right.
Take a 'courtesy' delivery to N.O. (your dealer)

I called MacMulkins in the beginning and wanted to buy. I was told they had 3000 people that had called in but would call me back. NEVER CALLED BACK. I even called back 3 times never called back.
I bought mine at Holiday Chevrolet in Whitesboro Texas.

The misinformation out there. These are sold orders and not
Below MSRP. Where cars.com auto trader etc get their stock info seems to be fake news. Same for dealers claiming they will get an
Allocation. They either got them last year or are NOT getting one.
There's more than enough info on this Forum about allocations

When I got interested back in December, I called Kerbeck and McMulkin, after 2 months neither called me back after I left a dozens messages for the persons in charge of the ZR1 orders, so I went to my local dealer and got one.

I spoke to a corvette sales specialist at MacMulkin yesterday, he told me that they had open allocations, and he would immediately send me an email with the paperwork to secure the allocation, & the required info on how to send them my deposit,........ haven't heard from him.

I guess "immediately" has a different definition in my world than it does in the northeast......

Maybe he will email me by tomorrow.

I emailed a friend of mine who is a manager at Ross Downing, he said he thinks all their allocations are already long gone, but would check & let me know on Monday, got my fingers crossed.
