Last Bolt EV smuggled out of the People's Republic of South California?

I believe I'm the owner of the very last Bolt to make it past the California export embargo. It's a Silver Premier that I purchased from Rydell two weeks ago while it was still in transit. It's been sitting on their lot for the last week waiting for a shipper who's daring enough to brave all the winter storms we've been having and deliver it to Salt Lake City. I just got word that it's finally being loaded up on a truck today and should be here by Friday.

So I think I'm the last person to get one out of California and maybe the first to get one here in Utah. Does anyone know anything otherwise?

I wouldn't be bragging about this until the car is in your possession. GM can quickly stop sale that car and come down on Rydell.
I would think that if the sale is complete there is nothing GM can do. (Presumably, Rydell is not sending it C.O.D.)
They can't unilaterally undo the sale.
Yeah, I guess what I was asking was why a dealer would set up to service a car, but then not actually sell it? Not sure I understand that.
The dealers in states not named California or Oregon are preparing for when they CAN sell Bolts.
GM is not shipping Bolts to those dealers yet but will by the end of the year.
It takes time to get technicians trained and service equipment ready.
