They shipped it Fed Ex

I love shipping fed ex and tracking packages. I order tires from tirerack in Louisiana and they go to Knoxville, TN before coming to Oklahoma! Maybe your car is on the same truck!

Actually, they go to Memphis Tennessee. Memphis is the Fed Ex hub, so no matter where a package is going it stands a very good chance of going there first.

I'm getting discouraged, you first 1000 haven't gotten your car yet after so long, when am I going to get my zero zipper car? Christmas?

Waiting impatiently.

I keep telling myself that the longer I wait the more I can put down on the car... That gets me by.

If it ends up being christmas then I'll basically have the thing payed off!

:agree: Me too. 'Cept the duct tape and bailing wire that's holding my present ride together keeps having to be repaired. :)
Maybe you'll win the "McGyver" award for the use of duct tape!

The driver probably didn't know, "What EXIT!"
I used to live in Joisey. It seems whenever I would mention it, someone would say, "oh, you're from Joisey, I'm from Joisey", and I would tell them that expression is out. Current expression is "you're from Joisey, what exit?".

I thought about vanity plates that would salute that in:

what x it

Joe Piscopo started that "What Exit?" joke:
"I'm from Jersey."
"Oh yeah? What exit?"

Did anybody get a call from their dealer today? If so give us any news.
No, but I called my dealer today and I'm happy with the news.

Because of the shortage of Leather ( I ordered cloth) my dealer's second vehicle got bumped and I am now a first allocation order. It is supposed to arrive by end of September here in Canada.

Still should get a sunny day or two before the rains start.

Wasn't this deemed to be a complete rumor? I think it was a concern which was answered by Lori Queen and posted in one of these threads. I'll be back...gonna search.

Here's the first half:

The rest:

Q24: Have all problems with the leather interior's availability been worked out?
A: I was told all leather availability issues have been resolved

Regardless, congrats.
