There was one hitch that delayed the delivery of my car. That was the fact that it was purchased
hundreds of miles from where the importer operates out of. Instead of hauling it back to Melbourne it was going to ship out
of Brisbane, Australia. However this meant waiting until the importer purchased another vehicle in that area to share
the container with my car, thereby keeping shipping costs to a minimum. I agreed to this and waited. Unfortunately it took
from December 2003 to September 2004 until my car arrived. It shipped out of Australia in August. Fortunately that was at
about the end of my patience as well. The trip to the USA typically takes in the ballpark of a month due to the ship stopping in
other ports to pick up more shipments.
