That was fast

You've gotta be happy, Wolf. You started out 8 weeks behind me, and now you've caught up with me. Way to go!

Actually, I put my deposit down on April 16 and had my order put into the dealer's order pool. They didn't finalize the order and put it to GM till Aug. 6

By the way, I had two dates each for Accepted by Production control and Available to sequence, each a week between the two.

Some of these dates are in the future, they've actually got those items listed for your car already even though they haven't happened yet?

not future dates

My bad, brentil. I need to get my keyboard fixed. I was typing 09/26/05, but the keyboard was indicating 09/29/05. Sure is hard to get good hardware these days!

hehehe, it's all good. Was just kinda confused cause I thought those event items didn't show up on the VOMS system until after they had happened. Sounds like your car is riding with mine, had about the same dates/codes as yours. Mines just going to FL instead of TX though. I bet they'll ride a rail car down to GA then split up from there.

So do I. When we get our vehicles, we need to plan a meet. With you in Hazel Green, mssleepr in Auburn, me in Lincoln(East Central AL), probably somewhere in central part of the state.

Any other Alabamians we know of?

Unfortunately date of order doesn't matter in determining when it gets built. Its dependent on your spacing in your dealers 1st 4 month allocation, and how big that allocation is. Closer to #1 in allocation, and the larger the allocation the sooner they get built.

Thanks for the info.! I am a "newbie" here so can you explain "dependent on your spacing in your dealers 1st 4 month allocation, and how big that allocation is." in more detail? I.E. when does the dealers 1st 4 month allocation start? And how can I tell how the dealer will be Closer to #1 in allocation? I think the dealer told me he was allocated 8- do not know if that was for this year or not? It is a small dealer in Oxford, MS!

Thanks for any info.!

Pure Energy Update!!!

Just checked with the dealer. VIN #1888(Pure Energy) left Lordstown today!!! :party:
Estimated delivery day is 7 to 10 days from now. DBC will update the sales managers Thursday.

Also dealer wants to display the car for a couple of days, especially if it arrives next Friday, and for letting him display it, I get the first oil change free. I'll let you know the display dates when its arranged.

Anybody on the forum in the vicinity, come on by!!

You have to ask your dealer pretty much these direct questions;
  1. How many cars are in your 4 month allocation?
  2. What position in line am I?

If you're inside the 4 month allocation it gives you a rough idea across the next 4 months when your car will be made. If you're outside the 4 month allocation # your car will be in the next 4 month allocation or the one after that depending on how far in line you are.
