According to the Toyota website, I am number 55 inline to get a Prius.
According to my salesman, who called me yesterday, my Prius is actually on the boat from Japan and should arrive before the end of the month. The secret, for those of you who want to get one before 2010, is to be flexible about the color. It might also help to ask for the Totally Tricked Out Package (TM).
And, although I requested only that the interior be grey instead of beige (which makes me car sick), it turns out that MY Prius is silver, which would have been my first choice anyway.
SQUEEEEEEEEEEE! My Brand New Shiny Car Is Almost Here!
