Drove my HTC for the first time today, it was limited as it was prior to the PDI being completed, the owner of the dealership offered. Did not expect the offer, throw the dealer plate on and off I went. What a tease!

Will be picking it up in a few days, exceeded my expectations, which were high anyway.

300 days from deposit to delivery. A long time, but not as long as others, so I feel lucky in that regard.

Looking good! Congrats!
Mine was 378 days from deposit.

Funny how people are remembering how long they waited in "days" ... lol. Of course there are a lot of factors involved here but mine was 393 days from deposit to delivery at the self proclaimed largest corvette dealership in Canada.

Yes, well some waited 1000 days. lol. I waited until the car being built was a reality before I placed my deposit. About 2 weeks after the reveal. I had no idea there was a line up in front of me. I thought you just ordered a care and 6 weeks later I'd be driving it. Silly me.

That was my thoughts exactly Murray. Took me 3 months to figure it all out and I found a small dealer that was a straight shooter, out of the top three BS fits that description, had a deposit with Eric as well. My small dealer allocation was picked up first.

lol... same here. I thought, hey... I'll be first in line, lol. Then my salesman told me as of now (July 23, 2019), I would be 29th in line and that they have a group of five or so that have put deposits down for C8's right after taking delivery of their C7's in 2014! Those same people have deposits in NOW for C9's!

On a side note, I'm in dire need of a socialy responsible road trip somewhere today. Forks of the credit? Cobourg? Port Perry? Looking for some fall colours.

I live in Port Perry, the colours are changing but still not at their peek.

I'll lose that one. I find it very awkward removing the targa top

Interesting. Must be a lot different than the C7 top.15 seconds from roof to secured in the hatch.

There's a train car shortage (not car carriers) so this may have impacted how soon it got transferred from TFX to CN.

You have to talk to your dealer and see what status code you are at. That is about the best info you will get. If it's at 4000 it's available to ship. If there was an issue and it's being held for Quality control it will be bayed at status code 4B00. If it was shipped it's status 4200 or higher. 4300 or 4800 means JCT handed it off to another transport company.
