How are cars usually shipped? Train/Truck?

Also, I'm seeing some folks got a Focus coffee mug. Is there any special program to be apart of to get one? I'd like to get my hands on one of those.
You had to have a Retail order (which since your car was built in Feb seems to not be the case) to get the mug.

Travel depends on where it is going. On your window sticker, below the fuel econ, it will say 'Method of transp.'. That is how it will leave the factory - Convoy means truck, Rail means... well rail. If it says rail, then at some point closer to your dealer it will be transfered to a truck for delivery to the dealer.

If it's a sedan, it seems like they are running them towards the end of the week. It may be a few more days before a sedan sticker pops up.

That would be the week of 4/25, your car (and mine) are scheduled for that week. I also don't have a window sticker yet, maybe stickers aren't created until 7 days prior to the actual build day. I'm going freakin' nuts here waiting for my window sticker, especially since others scheduled for next week are getting theirs. Not fair!

That's MINE! Just popped up in the last 5 mins. Checked it, checked my mail, and just for giggles checked it again and BAM! Sticker.

Odd thing, is it has no name on it. Shouldn't it say Tag M Truland? It was a retail order for me...

VIN's

About how long are they taking to get VIN's. My order went out on March 24th. I still haven't heard from the dealer. I don't want to keep bugging them.. I figured about 4 weeks or so.
