Monday night at 7:45p...

Emerald Aisle:
Single HHR

Executive Aisle:
Single Volvo S40

About 8 of us got off the bus, luckily I was first and snagged the S40, but others were pretty upset. The lot in general was pretty sparse.

Lol, did you floor the gas pedal before they could pelt you with stones?

Executive Select on Monday evening: Three Jeep Patriots and a Buick Enclave. I took a Jeep, 1800 miles and it drives nice. I had reserved a FS but SUV is my usual. No upgrade since no FS. All in all pretty good, but if you wanted a car you had to cross the aisle to the regular stuff.

Today at about 6 PM. They seemed to have one of each strangemobile in their entire fleet on the EA.

1 Nissan Cube
1 Kia Soul
1 VW Tiguan
1 Mazda 5
1 Ram 1500
1 HHR
1 Impala
1 Charger
and 1 brand new loaded Ford Escape, which I took

Didn't look too hard at the ES, but I did see an Altima, a Charger, and a few small SUVs.

Today's pickings at BDL were really slim. On a Tuesday morning there were just 5 cars available.

Dodge Durango - My Pick
2 Impala
Grand Marquius
Jeep of some sort

Agent told me best times at BDL are Monday Morning, and Thursday and Fridays

On Monday evening, there were three Exec on the bus and three cars in exec: Rav4 (I took it), Grand Cherokee and a Impala. There was one car on the aisle, a VW, taken by the fourth person on the bus. Sad.
