Trip to Canada, conflicts with my wifes schedule (our discount is in her name, so she has to be there) and the dealers schedule (they won't close a car after noon on a saturday), and a possible trip to Florida to see the launch of STS-134.

I ordered on 3/8/2011 but didn't get my VIN until today; the car was actually built last week (either 4/27 or 4/28 depending on where you look) so the VIN was assigned sometime last month but my dealer was just slow about communicating it to me.

Of the 56 cars that we load about 40-45 we take to the ns yard which is where the get added to a train or become a train. They are loading them on trucks now too so not every car is by train
Would you have any idea how long it takes by rail from plant down to Fla?

Ordered on 4-3, called dealer 4-27 and got my vin (they may have had it earlier, that just happend the first day I called the dealer). Both window sticker and ETIS confirmed the manufacture date as 4-27. On about the 30th, my full ETIS data posted. Yay, shutters and non-PZEV! A couple days later a forum member PMed me and said it would be shipped by Norfolk Southern, and gave me a rail car #. Today, my dealer called me and said the ETA is 5-17, give or take a few days. This is honestly quite a bit faster than I expected, looks like they're really lighting a fire under it. Truthfully, I'm not totally ready to pick it up yet, I expected it more in June. But I am VERY excited

Btw, vin is 1FAHP3n23cl145424
