Wow, cruising through a metro shopping center in Peoria and there it was, Mysterious, black cloth interior, no bells and whistles, but VIN #49. Didn't know that anyone else in Central IL. had even received another 1st 1K Sol. This one came out of Sam Leham Pontiac in Eureka, waited around for the owner but no sign of him/her. It was sure great seeing a final production model vs. the test mules in Detroit - fit and finish looked great! :yesnod:

Still waiting on VIN 296, hopeful for this weekend as it shipped on 9-7. We'll keep you all posted.

Cheers!

TJ,

We can only hope that 296 arrives soon. Your and your wife have waited quite some time for its delivery. The dealer let me know this morning that my car came off the line yesterday. I couldn't hardly finish the days work.

Come on over to the MidWest thread

Hey TJ and Crawdad:
Take a look at the thread: Time In Transit: MidWest Region.
Share your transit information with the Sols from IA, WI, MN,IL, MO and all around the MidWest. Perhaps we can all learn how the delivery system works in order to get a better idea of when are cars will really be delivered. If nothing else, it keeps us entertained while waiting.

I ordered my Sol from Sam Leman in Eureka the day before #49 arrived. They called me up to let me know so I'd get to see one in person. (Of course, they already got my money!) They were doing some clay bar action to get all the rail dust off of it. I got to sit in it before the owner did! Bwahahahah!
It looked so nice that I had to change my order to Mysterious as well! :)
