Bought mine over the phone in '06 and drove it from Moundsville WV to IL on January 5th '07... The owner of the dealership and his daughter built it to spec for his collection when their dealership won the allocation lottery.
I had only sat in one, let alone drive one... Great people and they were heartbroken to sell it, but the economy was taking a toll on their sales numbers so he sold it. At the time my wife and I discussed whether we could afford it and she said "just go for it"...
By far the best car I've ever owned and its the only car I own with a name (Vanessa), I have no plans on ever selling it, even if I'm lucky enough to get an allocation for the new one. So many great memories and hard to believe it's been 12 years already.
Was loaded up at Lucas Ford last Saturday. They have a few snow storms and rain storms to get here. It'll probably show up next week, hopefully in one piece. Then it'll sit in the garage until July 5, that's usually when it stops raining in the PNW.
Hey Plycar. My car looks good with your truck. You should use it in a photo shoot for advertising and call it a wash on shipping..
