Merry Christmas!

Thanks for the info. That was about what I figured - although MI is far closer to MD than Denver! So I hope no later than Nov. 21st. But it is great to know it is built and on the way.

It is totally cool that you got your car. Congrats.

Hope to hear more after you rest up from the trip.

I believe that the A/C is driven by an electric motor, like the power steering. I can confirm when I get home on Sunday (I am in Canada right now).

Make sure you vary the revs on the drive back from Denver and do all of the other correct break-in things which is probably know to do.

When I picked up our car, I got the cargo net. I went back and got floor mats.

So, is this solar thing something that you have come up with or is it someone else's design?

Do I get to drive the car much? My R32 lost a coil pack (it has individual spark plug coils for each cylinder inside the spark plug hole), so I was driving the smart waiting for the replacement to come in. Sometimes it feels like a normal car and sometimes it feels as small as it is. I had to run errands in Seattle last weekend and my 6-year-old insisted we take the smart. My daughter and I are probably going to do a TSD rally in it next month (running in the new 'Green Car' class).

It just turned 1000 miles on Wed.

Now you have solid information and not just speculation. Not long now! You can make it...

That's awesome. It won't be long now, it will feel like forever, but it really won't be. Have fun with the car when you get it, and keep me posted.

Cool. I am excited for you.

That is a little later than I expected based on when things have happened with your DDE, but better late than never, right?
