When I originally ordered my 350 the salesman quoted a build date of May 20th. I decided to ask him, yesterday, what the production status was...expecting the alphanumeric production code from him.. Much to my suprise, he tells me that the car is built and will arrive on May 25th.

NOW I am excited!! [:D]

Halfway thru the video, is that really the interior of the car? If so, Oh my god! I've never seen so much crammed in such little space. Am I naive? Does every car look like that under the dash?

So I just got word today that the car "is on the water" and the sales person was able to give me my VIN #. I will be notified early next week on the exact delivery date!

I was able to track my vehicle using the VIN# on the WW lines. It is on the vessel Talisman, due to dock on May 23rd in Baltimore MD. It is on Voyage EF511-TLI. From Baltimore it is going to either Savannah or Brunswick, Georgia; Manzanillo, Panama; Papeete, French Polynesia; Aukland, New Zealand then Melbourne, Australia.

Anyone else tracking their vehicle on this vessel?

I think it's kinda cool.
