GMLinedog or Big John (or any other "insiders"), can you tell us if the shipping is going to follow the same standard shipping methods and procedures as all the other GM cars for the first 1,000 or since they're going to particular places (versus having 20 cars going to the same dealer) are they going to do something different with the first 1,000 solsti?

Also, Anyone know if they're shipping them as they build them or are they going to ship all of the first 1,000 at the same time?

Finally, Can anyone provide any further information on when people are likely to actually start receiving their solsti?

Thanks much! Appreciate all the great info. that everyone has provided, particularly those of you who have access to information the other's of us aren't priviledged to. Thanks, Scott.

Shipping

If they shipped just the 1st 1000 they would lose big bucks on shipping cost. unless they had other cars to fill the load.

Does anybody know just how the transport system works? Do they send all the Solstices to a distribution point where they are put on transports with other models for shipping? It really doesn't make sense to load a truck full of Solstices in Delaware and drop off one or 2 in Pennsylvania, 1 in Ohio, 1 in Illinois, some in St. Louis and mine in Kansas City. Do you see many auto transports on the road with just one model of cars on them? Seems like there is usually a mixture of models. Maybe this is why it takes 3 weeks to get to some locations.

Exactly. However instead of shipping post-EOP cars with EOP cars they might just ship them with other Pontiac cars headed to dealerhsips.
