Re: 2014 diesel production

Chevy,

It looks like someone is trying to be funny. The flyer has been modified manually, besides, October 18 is a Friday. Let us know...

Re: 2014 diesel production

Maybe we can talk Chevy into driving us to the Yard so we can get a sneak peak at our unicorns.

I specifically asked about this, and a firm date, in my email.. I'd hate to see anyone come here, and there be no tour.. Or very limited access. That'd just be pointless.

I'll update when they reply..

I'm several states away, but wanted to thank you anyway for offering this. That is really awesome of you Chevy! Maybe Shannon will try and sneak his truck out when no one is looking

So yesterday we got a foot or so of snow. My Subaru has always handled it well, but I'm looking forward to flipping my Terrain Select over to snow, and cruising around in my JGC. Let's hope that my ship date has held steady for 10/8, and that everyone else will ship in a similar time frame.

Wouldn't get my hopes too high. My first ship date has come and gone. My second ship date has come and gone, not sure this unicorn actually exists

Re: 2014 diesel production

Does anyone know if there is any chance if the first ones will start shipping this week (or do we have to wait for uncle sam to pull his head out of his a**)

My hopes aren't that high... My original ship date was 9/14. It's been revised before, and will be revised again. I was just wishing...

Re: 2014 diesel production



So a good chuck of what I am going to say is not specifically related to the Diesel Production but I thought this is as good a place as any.

So I am getting married this evening to my love of 7 years, I have no less than 12 people living at my place all this past week and it occurred to me that tomorrow is a new day. So probably for the next day or two I won't be around much but before I go, something was bugging me from a few days back that I thought important to post here (sorry, it won't help your diesel needs).

A few days back Chevy posted that diesels were moving and very likely it seemed that Milous and I had some differing opinions on this. After reading through all of the posts I realize that I made some errors in what I was writing and wanted to talk about that. When I say physically, I should probably say "as far as I see" because the truth of the matter is Chevy is completely correct.... More often than not, the data that Milous and I see can be delayed while information is updated. What Chevy and Marlon see with their own eyes is the most up to date a physical thing that can actually happen. The day that we were getting moment to moment VIN announcements from the floor cannot be compared to any other experience that could ever happen in a forum of this kind and I never want anyone to forget that.

Chevy and Marlon have no reasons other than their interests in being here. I can even say that I am more motivated to check this information more often for you all simply because I am also waiting for a diesel myself. It is very difficult to tangibly thank these guys for the information that they provide and I wanted to make absolutely crystal clear that there is no info more up to date than the information that they provide.

So as is inevitable, do to the fact that some of us are not physically there, we will see differing information from time to time. I can guarantee you this though, if Chevy says your VIN is parked somewhere or went somewhere, it very much trumps the info that I have.

So anyway, starting the next step in my life tomorrow, and I had high hopes my White Summit would be here for my Wedding. It is not, and that is OK. All I wanted to get out there is that this experience would not have been as thrilling without Chevy and Marlon on the Floor. There are those on this forum that paint all JNAP employees with the same brush and I wanted to say it isn't so and I hope all of you here would correct those elsewhere in this forum that don't believe these guys give their utmost every day!

Also, just remember it isn't Chevy and Marlon's fault that our Diesel's have not shipped but it is certainly their livelihood. I am sure I will love mine when it gets here.

Will,
