    Our car was built in mid-November, we took delivery at NCM 7 December, and Reliable unloaded it here 4 January. The album arrived in late January or early February. Sorry I can't be more precise.

      It is also a non-linear process for too many variables to predict. In general as ATGuiness’s experience was, typically two or three months after NCM pick up day.

        My C8 was manufactured on January 8. I got a notice yesterday from the Museum that they mailed it and it will arrive on Tuesday. What a coincidence that you would ask at this moment.
