My source from the Holden Plant has advised me that they are building about 60 cars a day and that the next ship is to carry 740 but he does not know the date yet.
Also the first adds are to be aired 11-3-03 and they expect to have 2,500 GTO's in the US by the end of the year!:D

Ok, about 12 days worth of production. Last Ship left 10/22 So Next should be loading about 11/2 give or take. Will start looking. Nothing scheduled in port up to 10/30 yet.

Too true, but then again, look at your # of posts. And my TPW was last week and you're still at 1100. Hard not to remain obsessed.

There are a total of 988 posts on this board. Of which I have 154 (including this post). That amounts to 15.6% of the posts of this board. Hardly a majority if you ask me. :D

I'm also not the one belly aching about MSRP, getting a TPW, The entire shipping schedule for the Pacific Ocean for the next year, how many cars come off the assembly line on an hourly basis, etc, etc like many here! I placed my order Aug 7th. I have an order number, I will get my TPW when it gets pulled. Actually I hope it's a little longer, therefore I don't get the car in the middle of winter here in Chicago. The longer the wait for a TPW, the more I can save and the greater the chance of me getting it and being able to drive it on nice days. Not coming home and putting it in storage for another month or two. SO for all I care, let Pontiac take their time with mine.

I'm thinking the only reason you're not is that someone else is kind enough to do it for you, and that you (like I) would be if they hadn't but we are happy enough watching from the wings and waiting. I for one would like to salute you all (to quote a beer commercial) mr. whining anxious post man for keeping us informed and not looking as desperate as you.:drink:

Uhhh, no! None of the pissing, moaning, bitching and complaining has provided me any benefit! None of the information Tails has obtained matters to me as mine hasn't even been given a TPW yet. We still have no set in stone numbers on the MSRP from Pontiac which is one of the biggest complaints everyone has and hasn't been resolved and just a few days ago, a boat left with the land down under a few cars short of what was expected. So how do I benefit from those who are complaining?? Please do tell.

Maybe I was wrong and you aren't like me but I find all the posts very entertaining and if you don't I wouldn't think you'd be reading them. I spend way more time than I should reading everything I can find even if it's just uninformed people's opinions. (just ask my wife) :)

True, I find myself secretly looking here during the day when I should be working. Tsk, tsk!! :D

All these message boards are addicting.

Well, you can chuckle at their lack of patience - a good laugh never hurts anything, and if the people complaining can't laugh at themselves, f'em.

It looks like the 740 cars will leave November 4 onboard the "Pioneer Runner". These ones would be all the Christmas present ones.

So if my TPW is 10/27, is there any chance of it making this boat? I would not mind a new set of keys jingling in my stockings. :D

of course we still don't know if our cars that were supposed to be built in September even made this boat. I'm hoping/assuming they did but the tracker hasn't shown any change from the 3300. Maybe the first boat was for vip's and magazines only as someone has suggested previously. (heaven forbid)
