Judging from Boston and Detroit, it doesn't seem likely you will get close to the car. They just moved the Detroit model behind a barrier on a turntable as the show opens to the general public.

At least in Boston you walk right up to it and rub your grubby hands all over it ... peer into the windows cupping your hands about your face to shade the light ... "Yep, it's the all-leather interior. Stitching looks good on the steering wheel."

I even crawled up under the bow and stern, rattled and shook the various bits... even inspected the cage around the gas tank ... upon which the driver sits ...

I assume they eliminated a lot of questions by having it locked .... if you could sit in it, enjoy it, be impressed with it, wanna' buy it.

You, "Okay, I'll take it ... how much?

Honda, "Dunno."

You, "I want one ... when will it be available ... when will you know?

Honda, "Dunno when we will know."

You get the drift ....

You, "Well da__mn, why do you even display the da__mn thing when you don't even know .... ?"

Having just driven 100 miles down from Portland, we did a lot more than just "touch" it ... we fondled, stroked, rubbed, poked, sniffed ....
But it does seem to be the right size for my 5'5" wife :)

That's what I'm afraid of. If I can't sit it it, why waste my time and money.

Well, for me, SWMBO liked it as much or more than when she saw it in Aoyama last year ...

Of course I would have preferred to have seen more, to have gotten more info, etc., but we did see enough to decide that we'll go ahead and order one ... someday, sigh ....
