One metro Detroit Chevrolet is apparently a little over anxious for the yet-to-bet-announced Camaro successor. Les Stanford Chevrolet in Dearborn placed an ad in May's DuPont Registry, complete with a picture of the concept from the 2006 North American International Auto Show and language about the car's pending arrival. The dealership announced that it was taking deposits on the vehicle, and actually got five $1,000 deposits.
General Motors authorities are investigating whether Les Stanford Chevrolet violated the dealer sales and service agreement and has said that it must return the deposits. Secretly, of course, higher-ups at the automaker have to be thrilled that the vehicle is already this hot.
