Your title made me laugh out loud! Or as my kids text, LOL. Our car is on the Integrity, no Opera tune there.

marinetraffic.com shows Fiagaro at Port Hueneme, right on time. How long has the VPS/customs been taking lately?

Customs a couple of days but don't have any intel on the VPC. It was about five days the last time we did this, but that was two years ago. We're picking up in Santa Barbara so hoping to make a run up the coast before T-Day.

Well, things are looking up. Our car cleared customs in 12 hours and was released in 24 per the W&W website. Hopefully the rest of the process moves as quickly.

We're training it to Santa Barbara next week with a hoped-for pickup on the 15th. Dealer says that should be good, but you get the standard disclaimers.
The VPC really does seem to be a "black hole" for info/status.

Have you received your car yet? Mine is still at VPC, receiving some 'Finishing Touches'.
