On her way to NYC

Looks like she's left Halifax and is heading to NYC...

Nice work fella's. This beats the BMW OC or 800 number anyday

So now it's onto Port Jersey and the Northeast Auto Marine Terminal (NEAT). The BMW Port Jersey VPC is where my BMW will be processed. :rocks:

Here is a link for the Port Authority Auto Marine Terminal in NJ - nothing too great but it's all I could dig up so far:
http://www.panynj.gov/commerce/amtmain.HTM

Here is a Google map image as well (one of you Google Earth users could prolly dig up a better image):

I'm confused - the cars actually dock in NYC, but are then trucked to the processing facility in Jersey City?

I checked with AIXLive.com also, and sure enough...it shows the Tacred docked at the Halifax autoport, and the Don Juan is nowhere to be seen...which means she's at least 20NM out of the port! Good show folks.

The ship will dock at one of the two berths at the Auto Marine Terminal in NJ - it is operated by the Port Authority of NY & NJ.

Below is an image of the facilities operated by the Port Authority of NY & NJ to give you a better picture of how things are layed out. The second image is of the Auto Marine Terminal.

Some additional details about the terminal:

"The Port Authority's Auto Marine Terminal covers 130 acres along the Jersey City/Bayonne waterfront on the Port Jersey and Greenville peninsulas in New Jersey. It is dedicated exclusively to the movement of vehicle imports and exports. The terminal includes two ship berths totaling 1,800 linear feet open vehicle storage areas, offices and processing buildings for the facility two tenants, BMW of America’s Port Jersey Vehicle Preparation Center, and Northeast Auto Marine Terminal (NEAT). CSX and Norfolk Southern offer direct service to the facility through its adjacent automobile rail terminal."

My SA said "Priority 1" cars usually make it to the dealer in a week (or sooner) after they hit land. This would make my delivery date 3/8, but I'm not holding my breath. I'll give them 'till the 10th before I get a one-way rental car and find the thing myself!

PS - what's a Whalen shift machine?

OK, so the cars don't actually come to NYC - they go to NJ.

Wonder why the WW site says NYC then?

Finally had a chance to go through my Halifax webcam shots and I caught the DJ leaving port and the Tancred on the horizon making it's way to port. When I was deleting all of the pictures with nothing interesting in them, I accidentally deleted the best shots of the DJ - stoopid me. Stoopid, stoopid, stoopid. I debated even posting these but thought, meh, why not?

Nice shots of the Tancred arriving can be found here:

Roll Call...

Hi all...got bored with the DJ not showing up anywhere, and I had some free time before I hit my list of errands, so I thought I would compile a quasi-complete roll call for the DJ, based on the posts contributed to this thread so far. If I've somehow made a mistake, just let me know, and I'll edit the list accordingly. The purpose for this list? A fraternity thing I suppose. You judge the merits where it concerns you. Anyway, here's the list to-date:

Shipmates:
b311lee - DC
Beto Pereira - FL
Carguy1965 - GA
Cinci330i - OH
fletcher969 - IL
irowharderthanyou - FL
KL2DC - VA
mandrimac - PA
no_exit - MN
Romulus - NE

I'm 99% sure I was on it, though the tracking site never had any info for my car.. judging from the dates of when my dealer said my car would be on land, I think I was on the DJ. I'm from NE

Thanks for the list.. The old DJs cargo sure is spreading far and wide once it hits the continent.. For sure we should all submit pictures once the wait is over, but it might be real hard to ever have a Don Juan get together.. Are some of you guys computer geeks by trade or just way better than myself on this machine.. ?? I am handicapped by living out in the countryside where DSL has not made it out here yet..
