First Forum Vert?

I think it's just great we got the forum area we asked for - cool! And I think it's just great there's a front page blog on the first one delivered. Not to muddy the water, but I've been following this topic closely (it's near and dear to my heart since I want to know where MY car is lol) and I think the first vert reported delivered was Drago77 (no pic) and dlmxyz (with pic) on 2/26.

Anyways, wheeee! We have a forum and a huge congratz to anyone who's already got their convertible!

It's all a matter of which question is asked...
1) Who was the first person to take delivery of a vert ?
2) Who was the first person who preordered to take delivery of a vert ?

Sorry, I was looking at preorders only (blinders on).

Actually, no matter how you answer the question, the answer is different than what's posted. Looks like you got the first, Drago77 got the first preorder?

Nope .. I'm waiting on my preorder. I was notified today that it bayed for the 5th time.
I'm just happy to see the verts have been released to the wild.

I noticed a couple of othersw were delivered as well. My vert was produced 1/26/11 and I'm still at 4B00. I guess they are digging them our as they come to them. Not really my way of releasing vehicles if i was in charge! But I'm not and have no control. This waiting has its ups and downs! LOL
Good Luck!!!

My speculation is that a lot of the first week or so builds are having their roofs replaced...a very slow and time consuming operation...and therefore lagging the later builds deliveries, which got the new roof from the begining.

That is one good reason why I told the dealer to pull the trigger so i could take delivery at the end of July; when I get back from Iraq. I'm glad there is a convertible forum, my gratitude to all who made it happen.

1. I think I was first to take delivery of a vert - I bought my Vert on Feb 19th - off the lot, just off the truck. Exactly what I went to order (minus the stripes which are on order.) I thought it was the first in W. PA until I posted the pictures on this site and found out all the preorders were held up. I am not sure how to find out when the car was built tho.

Ahhh, OK - I missed that you managed to get it so early!

Could probably deduce the build date from the last 5 of the VIN and comparing in some of the TPW threads in the order section. Congratz on the car, it is B-U-tiful!!

Actually first day the could put in orders was November. Allocation was a different thing all together. My order was placed on 11/19/2010. Looking at my history on camarotracking, my allocation slot was on 12/3/2010.

don't understand this allocation process,, allocation for 4 cars, that is all they can order?
do they go week by week?
month by month?

my sales person said my car left Kentucky yesterday,, hope that means it will be in our rail yard tonight...

for delivery tomorrow....

Been following your posts over the past weeks and gotta say I really feel for ya! What a miserable wait.

On the bright side, mine was delivered to the dealer on 2-26, but I still haven't taken delivery, and won't for 2 weeks yet

When you get it, you'll be assurred to was checked over well. Good luck.
