Actually, I wasn't serious. This is my response to how my original post was answered by some others on here. I was looking for some info and got some negative responses.
I wish it was true. I'm waiting for a 2 door Sport S with manual.
No problem. The reason I fell for it, besides desperately wanting it to be true, is that it was a thing once. I factory ordered a 2008 Corvette in 2007. The Canadian dollar was worth more than the US dollar (how I miss those days) and GM was not in good financial shape. Therefore, cars invoiced to Canadian dealers increased their cash flow and were prioritized. Mine ended up being built the first day of the 2008 model year production even though I was nowhere near the first ordering. I know that’s not the case now, but was hoping there were other factors at play.
