There will likely be more EcoDiesels than that running around the mountains
Hopefully we are all in the same train and leaving soon! I have one of the Co Springs deliveries but the final destination for my CRD is ft Collins.

Myself and Route66 both have 11/6 delivery estimates. Looking back at non-CRD orders in MOTS, all CO shipments average are 10-12 days, depending on which route the train takes. So by my calculation those things need to be cruisin out of Detroit tonight... (Fingers crossed).

I've had good luck using Griot's Garage products to detail my my toys that only come out of the garage on nice summer days. They are a expensive, but work quite well.

Re: 2014 diesel production

Been lurking here for months enjoying the excellent banter while I root for a successful release to grease the skids for an SFR. Speaking of grease, this comment is...awesome!

This will be the first thing I do following washing it.

11/18 is the production start date. Ordering *should* open on 11/08.
