    Biscuit Boy, they cannot bring me cars by helicopter. I wish they could, tho!
    They get built, they float over from Japan, they get prepped at port and come here. The trip on the ship from Japan takes about 14 days. Unloading a large ship with lots of other product on it takes days. They just started building the 2019 models. :)

    but princess, there has been a massive delay between the 18's and 19's. a mid cycle refresh with production line updates would explain it. but alas, no

    My first 2019 Prime was sold to locals... but the next 4 Advanced and two premiums are going to folks in Northern CA... gotta be my pricing. ;)

    I wish I could post everything I know... but these are here for a little while now and selling like crazy. I'm blessed with great selection.

    Up here there is barely anything to choose from.

    Yesterday I was at the closest dealer to me for the J0V recall and all they had was one white premium and no regular Prii :(.

    Thought I would see some 2019’s in 2019 as the Taco’s and Tundras that were there :cool:.

    Since I waited for 2 hours, I had time to count: 36 new Taco’s and 11 new Tundras:rolleyes:.

    Maybe there coming though(y).

    They had a really nice TRD Pro version there with a snorkel on it:).

    Definitely was purpose built ;).

    But it was the same price as the RX450h we bought in 2017:eek:.

    It got me thinking, but I didn’t take the bait(y).

    I’ve made shelves in our garage and have my spot space purpose built ;).

    So I’d be parking outside and the wife isn’t a fan of that:cool:.

    But the mpg would be the biggest hurdle(y).

    @Raytheeagle I have two Tacoma TRD Pro at MSRP right now, no markup if you are indeed interested - or know someone who is. Black w/ desert air in take and a blue pretty basic.

    No interest, more of window shopping while forced to be at the dealer;).

    The mpg would not work for my 78 mile a day commute :cool:.

    Good luck selling them to someone else (y).
