Did Topeka sail through Sandy? I think it went from the UK straight to Panama but maybe it got some part of the storm - not sure.

I'm sure everything has to go through customs somehow, but I have a feeling a new car will be quicker vs. an ED that someone has already driven and 'used'. Hopefully I'm wrong :-)
