Default My lucky day

After seeing a post on this forum for an available allotment at Holiday Chevrolet two days ago, I called David Johnson and was able to reserve that allotment and change the order to my specifications. The order immediately went to code 2000. Today it went to 3000! There is certainly something to be said for being in the right place at the right time. I will be doing a Museum delivery, hopefully in the not too distant future. I should probably go buy a lottery ticket with this kind of luck!

Thats great I kind of did the same thing but I canceled my order I had took one that was just like what you did. Gave the allocation I had to The ZR1Messiah ended up only getting mine two weeks earlier than the Messiah. Well we both got one that's what matters and happy for you for I believe they will stop at 2000 but just my opinion.

That's fantastic! I'd say good luck, but you obviously don't need that

Thanks to everyone for your congratulations, especially B-Reiter, who made the original post. Hard to believe, but it gets even better. I got my TPW today also. (Same day I went to 3000) It is 04/01/19. I ordered a blade silver coupe with black interior, red stitching, 7-speed, pearl nickel wheels, carbon flash mirrors. Looks like there will be cars built after the end of March after all.
