At 10:00, the transport unloaded three Elises at San Diego Symbolic.. One each, Saffron Yellow, Black, and Titanium.

After carrying my camera around for weeks, today is of course the day I leave it home.

There was already a small crowd forming, and the cars are being prepped.

Correction, most likely Silver, not Titanium. I haven't been paying attention to the shades of silver.

And SY looked damn fine in sunlight. I'm stoked.

Sounds like they are customer cars? Their demo is supposed to be silver, and not (storm) titanium. Thanks for the info though...may have to go down there soon.

Reassuring that our dealer is finally getting cars. :)

Vantage, you are correct -- my mistake.

It's most likely silver, not ST as I typed.

They just took them off the truck and were doing the walk-around. (Silver has some minor bruise on the front left.)

I don't know what color the car actually was, but I was just saying that if it was indeed ST, then it must be a customer car. Hopefully it is silver so we can drive it.

Was it you that hangs around the deli place?

Yeah, and getting a bit tired of cold sandwiches for lunch. :)

I'll see if I can run back and get the camera before they move the cars inside. If you see any Homeland Security events in the news, send help.

The MW has been alerted. Didn't sound like she was awake yet. I suspect that the impact hasn't yet sunk in. Preparing for an explosive response soon... (glad to see she still lives up to her childhood nickname:) )

As of 11:07 AM PDT, Newport European still does not have their demo, but it's expected "Any day now." I guess I'll be driving to Symbolic this weekend! :p

Thanks for posting the "heads-up", AW!! :clap:

If you are Bob, let us know, and if you have time we can organize an ET mini-meet.

excellent news. Now hopefully they'll let me test drive it without a deposit down :(
Well I have a deposit just not with them. Although I would've given it to them if they had an earlier delivery date for me. (In case Symbolic is reading this ;)

Lightning!

As I tend to be defiant, I usually respond in the opposite manner to commands. So my dad, being the smart a** that he is, calls me lightning, because I tend to move (and respond) very, very slowly.

Thus, my response to the Symbolic demo delivery is in my nature...delayed. When I'm good and ready I will get excited!

Hmmm... let me check my schedule! Is Symbolic open on Sunday? Vantage, MW, AW... anyone up for a Sunday Brunch and casual cruise over to Symbolic?

Intersesting to see who actually takes delivery from the list.

Not to step on anyone's toes... but maybe a Sunday Brunch soiree and Symbolic Cruise might be a good Club 111 activity? What does everyone think? I think La Valencia Hotel has a brunch, don't they? They're about 3/4 of a mile from Symbolic, I think. It might be a bit pricey though... and it begins at 11:30 AM on Sunday. Any other place to meet and cruise over? If nothing else, I can bring 3 or 4 dozen Krispy Kreme donuts to Symbolic... :p

Which list ? Rich list, friends list, or regular list ?
