Now the obsession deepens...!
That will be a sharp color combo. I almost did the same but in the end decided I really wanted the Cherry Red. Either will be fabulous.

Well in this case, it pulled you back to the rail yard at the factory. They are getting ready to load your vehicle.

Re: 2014 diesel production

What can we expect for milage on delivery of our SFU's? My dealer made a comment about people in the dealership wanting to drive it around since they've never had one. Hope thats not true!

7-12 Miles.

I agreed to allow the dealer to show mine on arrival as it was the only one that they will have for about another month. Normally Dealers would NEVER let people test drive a sold vehicle, the risks are astronomical for them. They would be really stupid to do anything without your permission.

Thx Willx, I assumed that was the case as it was "Staged for Shipment" on Saturday. I'm trying to be patient, but it's like a little kid waiting for Christmas....

Re: 2014 diesel production

My SFU is headed to Koons as we speak. Who else is having their SFU going to Koons, as it would be fun to watch if all the trains take the same route and time.

I'm glad they have a second Diesel that's "in transit". They can play with that one and give me mine.

I am sorry I am not seeing an update on this one. Nothing to panic though. Truck shuttles can go without an update for a number of days sometimes. Keep checking the track, should be an update soon.
