We, like fools, didn't get any paper work other than MC receipt. However, the verbal exchange was we could get the deposit back anytime before we were given the VIN. slamdunk6 I would think your car hasn't even been built yet. Why don't you go onto the dealer facebook site and ask others "Did this dealer say you could get deposit back anytime before we receive the VIN?" Might shake him up fearing bad publicity.
