Congrats! Your baby looks just like mine did when I took delivery--you must be so proud! Have fun with it--you will get lots of questions, comments, smiles, jokes, etc. My best answer is " half the car, twice the mileage!" as I give a thumbs up and drive off...

Well you made it to the 1st step. How long have you been waiting for that email? April- July of 2009? That is not long at all. The average is a year. You will enjoy this special little car.
Good luck.
