So the dealer got my Daytona in yesterday, today I went and took her for a spin.... MAN IS THAT CAR SWEET>>>> anyway :D

I am trading in my AV, seeing as how no one wants to buy a truck with fuel prices hovering over 3 bucks a gallon.... so I am stipping everything off my AV in the next couple days, and once I get everything stripped down (and hopefully sold :D) I will, with any luck, be picking up my Daytona on Saturday....

I did the blank check loan thing, and that finally came fedex today.... and just got back from Sams Club getting the stock tires mounted back on the stock wheels so that I can sell my aftermarket rims....

will hopefully have some updates shortly... :D

Congrats DRT. Sorry you didn't get the AV sold, but I am sure your gonna love the D.

It looks like my car is 5 days behind yours:

8/19 JB: Shipped to body vendor
8/25 08:35 PM KZ Released by plant , invoiced
9/02 On Railcar - Phoenix, AZ

08-29 (JB): Ship To Body Vendor
08-31 08:40 PM (KZ) Plant Release
09-06 04:56 AM Delivery to a Location - Detroit Jefferson Assembly, MI
09-07 04:58 PM On Railcar - Detroit North Yard, MI

Talked to my dealer today and they said it was on the railcar (which agrees with the above) and that rail traffic to here was light. So it should arrive in our rail yard within 24hrs. That should be sometime tomorrow. But autorail's info shows it not getting into town and unloaded until the 12th (what a pisser if I cannot get it this weekend :mad: ). Then it shows 7 days after unload to get it across town to my dealer. :mad::mad: Hopefully the rail traffic is light and it arrives either tomorrow or very early Friday so they can get it off and trucked to dealer on Saturday.

Was autorail's info to you fairly accurate or did it get to the dealer sooner?

That wait is unbearable...

I got my R/T a week ago last Wednesday: I was so anxious, I don't think I even slept four hours the night before. :)

Well, I hope you have better luck with your Daytona the us. We've only had it since Wednesday, but its been a nightmare... Everywhere we go people are staring at us. I can't park in any parking lot anymore without someone coming up and asking about it. I look in other cars while stopped at a light and they're all staring like we're driving the Oscar Meyer Weiner mobile or something. Then when the light turns green, a second or two later, I'm already speeding, this never happened with the Mustang, but, good luck with yours....
