Don't worry, Matt. One day your ship will come in.
He's here all week!
Actually, if it's coming through the port of Long Beach (most likely), it will take a day or 2 after arrival to get on a train, go to the offloading facility in Utah, onto a truck and to the dealer. By the time I got my EVO, it took this route and had 12 miles on it just from moving it around. It all depends on how far out the ship is. It's an efficient process after the dock.
It's a bummer, yes -- but it'll make it that much sweeter when it arrives
Except I think the Volvo ship sank. The Mazda carrier just listed badly, so the car's weren't wrecked. Then they righted it. There's going to be a big used Mazda sale coming up (mostly the 3's). Seriously.
