Based on that I guess I'm not going to get one. Fair enough. Now the question is do I offer our Project Wildlife stuffed panda from the San Diego rollout in trade for a model car? I think...no. But I will trade my limited edition numbered Blnk piece of cardboard!
I was promised a jet pack!

I wonder if a 14-month wait (from reservation to delivery of car) qualifies, and if so, how long will I have to wait for the model :) ? I am very thankful I got my car, so I am not complaining if I don't get the model.

If anyone would like to buy my Blink limited edition cardboard I will offer it to a forum member at a great price of $300 before it goes to ebay.

Could be right. I got one, and had to wait exactly eight months from order (not reservation) to delivery.

It's called sarcasm. I thought that was quite clear to most:) I also noticed the paint was quite thin on my LEAF model. Anyone else notice it rubs off easily?
Am I the only one who figured that was more EVDRIVER humor (wonderfully deadpan, I might add ;) ), in reference to the thin-paint thread on this forum? Or is everyone just heeding the warning to not encourage him? :-)

I'd like to give one of these to give one of these to my son, who is nuts about our new (full-size) LEAF.

If you don't want yours, let me know. If you live in the Silicon Valley area I can pick it up from you.

Our 2 year old is nuts about the full size Leaf too! She even says that it runs on "Eletwicity"... if you don't want yours shoot me a line, I'd be happy to pay shipping. Looks like we are not going to get one.
