    I'm posting this for people to post their experience in the shipping process.

    My car was originally KZ'd on 12/19 with a dealer ETA of 12/29. It was scheduled to leave Taylor, MI, go through Angola, NY and then to the dealer. Nearly a week and a half later, my car went from MI, through OH, and to Jessup, MD on 12/30. That is ONLY 80 MILES from the dealer. Yet it is STILL showing that it's going to be shipped to Angola, NY WHICH IS 450+ MILES TO THE NORTH! My dealer is SOUTH of Jessup! Also, the latest dealer ETA is now 1/6/14, 8 days later than the original date. I don't have as much a problem with the dealer ETA moving a little, but shipping it an additional 900+ miles is utterly ridiculous and completely unnecessary! Not to mention taking additional chances with it getting damaged in shipping. Also, Angola NY is right on the Lakes so it gets Lake Effect snow and could possibly move the date even more! It's just another frustrating part of the way this entire process has gone down for most of us.

    Please, share your stories on your shipping experiences. Sorry for the rant, but I'm BEYOND frustrated about this.

    Well at least you have a car,and you will get it. I'd rather have it sitting in a frozen snowbank somewhere in NY, than still waiting almost 6 months with a VON.
    Shipping logistics are convoluted at the best of times, this time of year they are even worse!
    You will get it...relax

    I am relaxed. As with others on here do for various reasons, I'm simply venting. It's my car so if I'm pi$$ed that it's being unnecessarily moved around to places it doesn't need to be, ESPECIALLY in a frozen snow bank in NY, then it's my right to vent.

    If you only have a VON, then you should do some research online. There are Hellcats available to be bought now...some even at or near MSRP.

    Listen, you rather have your new baby freezing up in NY than spend New Year's Day with a fellow Hellcat.org forum member? They did not teach you to share, huh? hahaha
