Thanks! I have a couple car clubs that are counting on these being ready in time, so I will be placing the order at the end of the week regardless, The question is just how many will end up as White ones (any I have to order extra will be white so they can be repainted or "modded" to be Stingers... hehe

So far, in just two days there have been over 55 "likes" on the three Facebook Corvair sites I posted on about the Corvair thumb drives, plus a couple of shares by other Facebook members to Corvair club Facebook pages they were associated with. Hopefully some of this interest will convert to some additional sales!

UPDATE:

This is very frustrating to write...

I have spent the last two weeks trying to get the vendor to commit to a delivery date. As of last week they let me know that the issue is that their "primary" factory did not want to do a run that small with so many color variations. I replied I don;t give a crap what they want, you committed to the process. They contacted their "backup" factory and TODAY they finally got back and said yes, they would do it.

HOWEVER there is an issue that will be a BIG problem for several folks. the reply from the factory said

"I can have them ship out around July 10th"

This means that the folks who placed ordered for these to use as prizes for events this month will not have them in time.

IF YOU PLACED AND ORDER AND DO NOT WANT TO WAIT AND YOU WOULD LIKE A FULL REFUND, pm ME AND i WILL REFUND YOUR MONEY IMMEDIATELY.

I explained to the vendor that enough folks may cancel that we could drop below the 100 unit minimum... The said "sorry"

This experience has lived up to the old adage "No good deed goes unpunished"....

UPDATE: I just got back from a 6,180 mile road trip expecting to find the USB's at home when I got there. NO JOY.

I messaged the vendor and got this reply:

"Hi Steve, they are shipping from China by Thursday. Once I receive I will overnight them to you. The reason for the delay was the multiple colors."

Disappointing, but not much I can do at this point.

Last time I tried to go on your site to order, it was down. Is it up and running and still taking orders?

I ordered a blue 64gb unit on April 4, that was the day that the website opened for business. I paid $45 via paypal on 4-4-17. I have been quite patient for well over 4 months, and I've spent lots of time trying to work out problems with the website and I have been in direct contact with Steve Heeter numerous times. All I've got so far is excuses and more promises. What a waste of time and effort on my part. I'll never order another half baked project from anyone ever again.

Today is August 30. A month has past since the promised shipping date, but no sign of the order deliveries.

FYI...On Aug 14th he posted on Corvair Center about his wife being in the ER and that he was working on shipping orders as he had time while she was recovering. On Aug 22nd he added that he would send a refund to anyone who was tired of waiting. He should have posted an update here as well.

:dontknow: I give up. After months of waiting and empty promises of a shipment, I have requested a cancellation of the order and a full refund. Also filed a complaint with PayPal. I'll let you know the final resolution.
