We rarely get knee deep snow ;)

6 months is about the average visit to his shop actually...

I got those pictures from him after texting him something my 7yr old said: I think he accidentally sold it to someone and is trying to get it back. That is why it is taking so long.

Then when I showed him those pics: What has that idiot done to your car?!




I love my boy :mrgreen:

SLOOOWWW! I do like that color, though. BTW In the way of a reminder I got my 996 back from Jake in October. As you predicted...before the P!G was returned.

Yeah. New wager is if the wife get's her x-mas/anniversary/valentines/mother's day/birthday gift before I get the P!g back. It was supposed to be released early Dec, but Hasselblad has already pushed a few times with Mid Feb being the latest estimate...

I'm still betting on the camera... :(

I was holding my tongue so as to not jinx it ;)

I went and saw it last week and they were starting the wet buff, then assembly should have started. He says by this coming Friday, but we'll see.

Similarly this coming Friday is when B&H says that the wife's Hasselblad should finally be available. Not exactly holding my breath there either though...
