The most frustrating time...pre delivery.

I saw a new XR8 tonight! (14th Feb). And ya know what...it was mine!
My car has finally arrived at Eclipse Ford. Got the call today when it come in, and I had to go up and see it when I got home from work. I was lucky, they were just closing up.
Had a quick look over it, seemed OK, just dusty. At least I know it exists! I even touched it :s6:
Now I only have to wait for the nice people to get it in shape for me to drive away. Being busy, they said it'd be a week before I'm in XR8 heaven. That's a normal time period isn't it?
I'm not worried...at least I've touched it. Next weekend...cruise time!

True. I won't be the first....but that's fine.
It is Phantom who will have that honour. He got his last month.

Allright, another whole 7 sleeps to go. Hangin' for it now.

i'll bet i will come last. something will delay my car.
already i noticed a potential delay.
they fitted the wrong steering wheel.
my car got the fairmont steering wheel (i think) it's a leather wheel but without the poked gripping part of the wheel, it's the same leather right around.
my luck.
