So hoping mine is one of them, and that it will be at the dealer in 9 days. Still have estimated delivery date of yesterday.

Sure do hope I'm one of a "couple of Members" - sure would be nice to not get in a long term inspection.

Check VOTS early tomorrow.

VOTS showed my Jeep in Frame yesterday morning and it still lists it in Frame today. I was hoping for some movement

Mine has been seen completed sitting next to Shannon's yet VOTS shows PAINT. You sir, most likely, have a built vehicle now.

Oh man oh man oh man oh man ... I hope you're right! I haven't gotten the 2nd VOTS email yet and MOTS still shows pre-release but you usually seem to know what you're talking about, so I'm cautiously super-excited!

I've studied the MOTS data on delivered vehicles. Vehicles headed for a particular US region typically travel by train, then truck. These trains appear to have a schedule. The train to Nashville leaves on Sundays and Thursdays but may leave a day later.

I hope mine makes the Sunday train as scheduled. That makes my Sat 9/14 delivery possible.

You study this stuff so hard you make my brain hurt some days

But hey I am feeding the obsession I suppose to distract me from my own.

Interesting observation. I just checked for mine. It looks like the rail yard for my delivery would be Benecia, CA since that's only 35 miles from my dealer. And it looks like all the Benecia-bound vehicles got loaded on Thursday or Friday so I'm guessing the train leaves on Friday. It also seems to be a pretty consistent 10 days to get to Benicia. That hopefully will help me get an idea when it might arrive once I see it start moving through the plant.

Yep. Knowing the rail and truck route schedules helps planning when to be available for pickup. I travel frequently so I have to plan around my GC arriving. God forbid it should arrive while I'm gone. I plan on watching the transport truck arrive. I told my dealer I'm camping out. Lol.

No no no.. Yours was sitting in the area where Shannon's WAS. Shannon's hasn't been in the building for a while.

As for VOTS, again, it's not accurate. When you get an update, you can pretty much fast forward 3-4 hrs and that's where your car is. So when you see 'frame' you're probably in or leaving paint. When you see 'paint' it's likely somewhere in trim. And when you see 'trim' your car is most likely "built pending inspection."

However prolonged periods without an update are indicative of 'something' going on.
