I'm pretty sure I read somewhere that it was from 7 to 9, but it would probably be better to check with the dealership.

I'll be at Bel-Air on Thursday afternoon as well. My car is ordered so I should be able to test drive it too.

It is the same car visiting each dealer otherwise there would not be specific dates and times. This is the Scion Regional Reps car.

Just got a call from Mendes in Ottawa. They will have a car on site Thursday May 10 at 9 am. The test drives are from 9 am until 10 am. (I am reserved for 9 am) I want to get in first just in case the guy from Calgary shows up to write another FRS off. At 10 am the car will be in the showroom for public viewing. he did not mention how long it was going to be on display for.

I was told the car would be leaving at noon, so 10 - 12 is the viewing window. Hope I can get out of work!

Also hope that the weather holds, showing as "Isolated Showers" at the moment.

Obviously this is the same car making the rounds in Ottawa.

So...
Tony Graham Wed night, Mendes Thu morning 9-12 and BelAir Thu afternoon 2-5pm.

Waiting to hear from BelAir if the car is still there after 5pm or not. But looking at the postings from others, it may only be at each dealer for 3 hours or so.

I've ordered mine so hopefully enough time to test drive it. 3 hours isn't much time for multiple test drives and showroom viewing.

I also just came back from Tony Graham and I was thrilled to finally see and ride in the car,

It is beautiful. I love how small it is.

It was a manual and I only drive auto so I could only ride. The first chance to drive an auto will likely be when my car comes in at the end of the month.

Love It! Love It! Love It!

And I also got my VIN

I also so just got back from Tony Graham.
i was not sure before if i would LOVE the car or just LIKE the car....
after driving it, OMG i LOVE this car.
my biggest concern was leg room for the driver, not a problem at all

i was one of a few who did not pre order who got to drive it, had to hang out till 845pm to do it but was totally worth it!

fantastic

Good stuff. Glad to hear it is the manual that is visiting Ottawa. I'll be at Bel-Air tomorrow.

Any idea how many people were able to test drive it tonight?

You will love the auto transmission with sporty shift speed (2ms) with rev-bliping for down-shift. Even Moto san from club4ag wants the auto. He is the hard-core AE86 lover so the auto is that good.

In terms of how many are trying: I would say about 6 to 7, although I was late a bit so there were quite a few. I heard someone say Tony Graham got 9 pre-orders and they have 13-15 cars coming on the first lot. They seems to think that they will get more for the next shipment in near future so there is no shortage on the Scion side.

Hey I musta saw a few of you guys there tonight then, may have even talked to a few of you without knowing as I talked to a bunch of people as we were standing around waiting to sit in the car and stuff. I was there tonight to see the car, was very curious what I would think after seeing it in person.

After getting in the front seat with someone sitting in the back it was roomier then I thought it would be, he was 5'10" and I was still able to adjust seat and sit comfortably in the passenger seat, i'm about 5'8"

Was there with my gf and we really liked it in person as much as I thought we would.
