This is more a news item, so might want to be moved. But, as reported on another forum by a member from "down under"
On the Australian TV news tonight ... footage of the first ship load of G8's leaving South Australia today. So, however long it takes the ship to cross the Pacific, at least they are now finally "on the way to the USA".
Although not confirmed, it has been assumed that the ship holds 1500 G8s, 888 of which are special badged and allocated.
The factory is turning out 220 G8s per day alongside other production.
