    You are going to have a low serial number. Isn't that the second day of production?

    Not sure about it being the second day of production but I do know its very early in the process so yeah I expect a low serial.
    I am just happy my wait is short

    Ordered mine through Kerbeck and have a 2/3/20 TPW. First week of production. I almost wish it was a few weeks later so they can get some practice in.....

    For others frame of reference: I’m #1 at a small dealer (20 total allocations for the year), and I have a TPW of 3/9. Delivery in April???

    Rumor has it that in the next 10 days they will start to take Convertible orders.

    I was going to do LBR, full tan, but I wanted to see LBR in person- some pics didn’t look good, seems like one of those colors you need to see in person. I think it will be awesome. Probably do something similar when Z06 rolls out.

    I think LBR will look more brown in cloudy/overcast weather conditions but look amazing in the sun. It reminds me of Mclaren's Volcano red.

    GM pulled all target production weeks down, unless you hit “status 3300” in their ordering system.

    For reference I was originally told 3/9/20, then that disappeared. I was told by concierge yesterday that I am now at 3300 and back to my original TPW. There does seem to be some minor shuffling for whatever reason- some moved up, some delay.

    That is a nice looking configuration. Body colored side moldings I'd try, but the color and interior goes great together. Silver stripe adds "maturity"

    Any updates? Just curious what the lag times are between the stages of delivery.

    I would be feeling a bit like one of those Overhaulin' folks in the seasons where they told you up front.
