Picked her up Friday. 300 kms so far. So much different than a Mustang. The car is amazing and gets a lot of attention. Ceramic coated with the new turtle wax product. Turned out good. Feels great to have the car in my garage. So far I can't find anything to complain about. I asked for the cockpit rear window to be tinted and they decided to tint the hatch by mistake. Have to get that removed so the engine can be seen. Here are some pics. I have had the personal plate for 30 yrs on several cars including a C6. With a last name of Ray it fits. :)

Which Turtlewax product did you use? The ceramic/graphene paste one? It looks good.

Enjoy, mine (MY 2021) was built on Aug 25th, still have not received it, very frustrating!! :sadstatic:
I would suggest talk to your dealer. 2021 build was done early September. Last week 2022 build already reached 3719 base on Murray spread sheet. Hope your dealer can figure out what is wrong. Good luck.

Big difference in deliveries between Alberta and Ontario. But keep the faith as it won't be much longer now.
The very southern areas of Ontario can get cars deliver directly by JCT. Not sure where Ray is, but some southern Ontario cars still have to spend some time in Ingersoll waiting for another carrier.

It was delivered to Chatham. Sat for a week and then shipped in 1 day.

Congrats !! Looks like you went with the new low wing option. Trying to decide between that and high wing (like many). Nice color combo with the interior (love the natural), sadly cannot take natural with my color selections. Have fun !!

Do you have a pic from the back Ray? I'd love to see several angles of the low wing.

Yep, unfortunately the dealer does not have much say, really up to GM Canada. The car has been sitting in Southern Ontario (I think Ingersoll) for over 3 weeks. Supposedly a truck carrier is heading to Alberta this week, hoping mine is on it.

Funny, I went on chevrolet.ca and the build and price pages don't have that option.

I'm not sure that it's even up to GM. The transport companies have contractual agreements, so it's up to them to fulfil them or use them as contracted.

Looks great Raycer! Cant wait to see it. Taking a few days off this week to see the 2 dealers that I paced deposits with. Took your advice and am seeing if I will get it quicker at a smaller dealer, or my original larger dealer. Also hoping to just see one, as we haven't seen one first hand.
