You know tails, not to take anything away from you and the information but;

I used to care.......

(Velo remembering the days when we thought the cars would be delivered 2 weeks after the ships hit the states and now knows we aren't really so sure!)

I totally understand that sentiment. However I figured those with TPW in late November and early December might take notice. Plus the unusual name that matches one of the GTO colors.

It turns out that the cosmos purple that I had on order was placed outside the dealers alotment. Chances were that it would never have been filled. I ran across the black (with red interior) that had a TPW of Oct 27 at a dealer about 20 miles further down the road. I figured a goat in the hand was better than no goat. I will still have my purple die cast through.

I really only have a guess that they are on the dirt somewhere. We have noticed 4 ships and Jim Hopson mentioned 5. The third one that we saw leaving for San Fransisco Bay was the Galaxy Harvest which was a container ship as opposed to an auto carrier. The last one is the Merlion Ace and it is due to arrive around Christmas. So that means we know of three of the five for sure. We kind of might know of a fourth one. The timing of the ones we know about (Chijin, Pioneeer Runner and Merlion Ace) is what leads me to believe that ours are getting their quality control checks as we speak. I know I am busy putting my financing together. I don't quite have the downpayment that I would have had in March.

With intrest rates so low I have decided to finance the whole thing. My dealer got me 4.14%.

With me being in Michigan and you being on the coast you will have your before I get mine. My birthday is Jan 17 so the GTO is going to be a great b-day present.

Chotton,
Did you go through a bank or use GM financing? I was going to pay cash but if I can get a low interest rate like you mentioned above I just might finance part of it. My B'day is Jan. 16th. :)

Regards,

This may sound really stupis but I don't who it's through. my buddy that owns teh dealer that I'm getting my car from called and said he could get me that rate and I didn't even think to ask who it was through. I have a call into to him and will ask him who it's through.

At 4.14% I have better things to do with 30,000 dolalrs. Like invest it in the market.

My dealer is in Wisonsin though. I would say anything under 5% is a great deal.

I'm just going to take Ed McMahon hostage and demand the appropriate msrp. Just kidding Ed, don't be sending the goons around!!

Well with my TPW at 12/17 who knows when I'll have to get the financing rolling. It sounds like you guys are getting some nice rates so I need to get on the horn and see what's the best way to go. I wouldn't mind if it is February as I get some bonus compensation for the last three months of '03 to go straight towards the purchase. In the meantime I'll keep collecting cans and warm up the metal detector ha-ha. I sure hope you guys get your rides soon, and post some pics!!
