    I hope you realize, Bob, that this thread has derailed away from the original subject at a rather sharp tangent...

    But hey, it's your thread, so if you don't care, then I don't either!

    I can handle 'thread drift' when dealing with insightful comments. After all, I can walk and chew gum at the same time. <grins>

    I got an SMS message late Friday to prepare for delivery at Fremont on Friday, March 29, at 4:00 PM:

    They have me picking it up at Fremont but no VIN. Without a VIN, no loan. We'll have a discussion on Monday. So the options are:

    1) Change delivery to Brentwood, TN - won't get it next week but likely the following week. Works for me. I asked to change it to Brentwood when I accepted their trade-in offer. It will be a serious discussion.

    2) Mad Max - I fly out and drive it directly home. About 2,400 miles in about 52 hours. They'll have to figure out how to get the trade-in.

    3) Vacation drive home - Holly and I fly out and visit Aunt Jane, Brother George, Brother Will, Best Friend Beau, Mom (possibly other relatives), and home. About 10-14 days, ~2,800 miles. They'll have to figure out how to get the trade-in.

    So here are my weekend observations:
    • Friday 8:52 PM - "Your Model 3 is tentatively ... 3/29, 4-6 PM"
    • Sunday 3:05 PM - "Our apologies, ... reschedule your delivery ..."
    Off hand, it looks like an administrative screw-up. The usual Tesla production panic at the end of the quarter led to these posting with someone sensible realizing my car won't be available until after the quarter.

    Not looking good for Tesla's ability to organize their operations.

    Did you ever get a VIN?

    Sometimes there is profit in confusion. <grins>

    Yes and we will pick it up Tuesday afternoon.
