well, its here...sittin' in my driveway. waiting for my old man to come over and help get it into the house. I'd post a pic, but my wife took off w/ the camera. something interesting I noted: the inspection slip, and plate on the back say it was manufactured in september of 06. More fodder for forum speculation...LOL! guess I don't have to worry about it being a "rushed" manufacture. Obviously, its been sitting in a warehouse for a couple of years. could it be that part of the "problem" is one of distribution, and not just manufacturing capacity? and no, its not from dealer's stock. they were "out" when I ordered it. Told me not to expect it until fall...guess they got an unexpected shipment. anyhoo...just thought I'd mention it.
