Default Karmas on the "Glorious Leader"

Well that topic title probably made no sense to anyone, but "Glorious Leader" is actually the name of the cargo vessel that my car is supposedly on. My dealer just called to let me know that my car was on the boat and was due to arrive on US soil November 30th. Yay! In theory that means I should have my car mid-December.

My VIN is #500, so if you've got a VIN less than that, and you know there were no extraneous delays on your car then it's probably safe to say your car is on its way as well.

The Glorious Leader can be tracked here: http://www.marinetraffic.com/ais

Brian, this link will take you right to the ship:

I'll be a banner day when someone on these forums actually takes delivery of their actual car!

Yay! That means you can claim the tax rebate on this year's refund. Congrats! A very nice Christmas present.

We expect lots of pics and video!

I'm not entirely sure if my car is actually on that boat yet or if it's going to be later this week. Seems it's going *toward* Finland, not away from it.

Is the ship named after this guy?

I did a little research on the shipping schedule for Glorious Leader, and as far as I can tell it has never been to Finland and has no plans on ever going there. I remember hearing that the cars were shipped from Finland to Germany, so I'm guessing they change boats there because Glorious Leader is going to dock in Bremerhaven before heading to North America. Bremerhaven must be where the cars go first. Anyone know?

It makes sense. Maybe the number of Karma's is not big enough to have this huge boat, which can carry thousands of cars, come all the way to Finland. It would make sense to bring the Karma's to northern Germany first and then have them board the Glorious Leader as it heads for North America (probably stuffed with Audi's, BMW's and Porsches as well).

On Google Earth there is clearly a huge parking lot in Emden which is the boats next stop tomorrow, but the parking lot in Bremerhaven is MASSIVE! That's gotta be where the Karma's are waiting to get loaded.

Wait I think I see my car in that lot. Down in the right hand corner. Nope, that's not it. Brian, I'm envious! Post pics once you get it.
