Aren't they predicting a blizzard to hit BG on the 29th?

Regardless, you're going to enjoy driving every mile on the way home...and then you're going to want to go out and drive some more. Safe trip.

Blizzard like in the way of a BIG confetti blizzard? Sounds great to me :cool:

Congrats ddelfino! Save travels to Canada. Thursday will be here soon enough (though I hope what you are doing in Canada doesn't require a ton of concentration :) ). :cool:

Looked up the extended forecast for BG and it only goes through Sunday the 28th and it says sunny and 64 degrees for the day before your pick-up! Please tell us, other than red, more details about your car, so we can watch you on the Museum webcams.

Thanks all :D I am soooooo pumped! Everything is finalized with Shane and the Museum. Just finishing up my list of guests for the delivery. I go over to the dealer today to pay for RedHot and get her plate transferred. :cool:

So after I finished paying for RedHot at the dealer today, getting the plates transferred, etc. I had the opportunity to go out in a friend's C7. All I can say is WOW! These have incredible power- you are in triple digits within no time and with the engine hardly working. Truly amazing. The push back in the seat with each up shift is like none I have ever experienced in a production car. The fit and finish was great- this happened to be a 3L. A big surprise was what happened when you put on the seat ventilation- unlike my XTS where you can hardly tell it is on in Vegas unless it is humid out, these seats almost immediately felt cool. It functioned just like you would expect it to with nice air movement. Very effective. Also noticed that you could drive with the windows down at high speed and have virtually no wind buffeting. Did not take the exposed carbon fiber roof panel off before driving it- we did take it off at the end and it was really quite light. All in all one spectacular car! Ahhhhhhh, just 14 more days until I am driving RedHot :cool:

thx..right behind you...what do you show as status code now?
Not sure, last time it was checked it was at "4B00-bayed" but shortly after that is when Shane called me and told me they had received RedHot at the Museum. Since I now have the delivery confirmed at the Museum on the 29th I did not see any reason to check further on status code. :cool:
