    Obviously two very different cars and I enjoy them both. For me, I'd say the R is more fun to drive but the Gt 500 has so much power I haven't even begun to experience it's potential and probably never will. The 500 never fails to get a thumbs up and looks from other drivers...the R not so much...

    Smaller dealers seem to want to work with folks the best. I ordered and received my GT 500 in January from a small dealer in Iowa and my 2020 GT 350R in August from an even smaller dealer in Indiana. Both at MSRP. It's maybe getting a little late in the cycle to snare a 2020 R at MSRP but...
  3. It's official now... GT350 and GT350R production ends this Fall

    Make no mistake, this is sad news. The GT350 was one of the most special cars in a generation, a Road & Track Performance Car of the Year winner, and my personal pick for the best new car on sale today. It didn't have the thunder of the 760-hp GT500, but it still had a six-speed manual and makes...
  4. Any chance this is normal? Picking up car, not looking good.

    The R is in bound to the dealership and they want $10k over sticker. To much for me but it's out there for someone else.
  5. Damage to exterior/interior

    Not sharing misery.....It was actually the owner of the dealership that took the pictures and circled the areas and sent them to me. That tells you what a great guy he is!!! Not worried about chipped calipers or scuffs however a bit concerned about a couple dimple/dents from the factory. His...
  6. Damage to exterior/interior

    Man, I knew I shouldn't have checked in with the forum today!!! My car is sitting at the dealer waiting to be transported back to Michigan next week and I had the owner go over my car carefully and got these pics back right away. He's a standup guy and he put a call into his "best" body guy...
  7. 2020 GT500's Scheduled For Production - Part 1

    Earl - Called Ford Performance this morning and was told my car has left Flatrock and was shipped convoy to Melvindale (MI). Tony says it is there waiting to be loaded on a rail car. Looks like it's been there about a week or so. Guess that's the case with the four of us - Jeff
  8. 2020 GT500's Scheduled For Production - Part 1

    Hey, congrats to you too!!! Mine has to travel to Iowa and then I'll ship it back to Ann Arbor (hope that goes well in the middle of January). 4 months from now maybe we'll cross paths!!
  9. 2020 GT500's Scheduled For Production - Part 1

    Earl - Thank you for this unexpected update. It's truly remarkable the amount of effort you have put in to keep us all informed of our car's progress. Without you, I wouldn't have a clue about where my car is in the process. It's rare today to find someone who is willing to go out of their way...
  10. 2020 Shelby GT500 and GT350 Dealer Allocation

    You've given them one chance to many already! I hate this stuff, especially when the car isn't even built yet. Let us know who it is..... I know in most States they are not allowed to keep a deposit but I had one Porsche dealer that dragged his feet on me. Hopefully you put the deposit on a...
  11. It's Cold In Flat Rock

    Tomster - Bring your winter coat to Detroit! Low tonight of 4 degrees and cold for the next ten days with more snow a week from this Thursday. We got hammered with 12" of snow near the FRAP so I gotta believe this will delay things a bit more.......
  12. It's Cold In Flat Rock

    Wish it were true, but no low 50's by end of the week in Dearborn Lows in the teens all this week and highs in the lower 30's for the next 10 days. 6" of snow today......it's a mess driving today for sure. Guess I'm happy mine isn't built yet but it won't be any better in December.......
  13. 2020 GT500's Scheduled For Production - Part 1

    #930 and I just moved to 12/9/2019 from 11/11/2019. Seems like something is up when I dropped over 4 weeks like that. Quote from Noah today: "wow, this is the latest I've seen".......hopes for this year dashed now.
  14. 2020 GT500's Scheduled For Production - Part 1

    VIN 930 Original week of 10/28 Moved to 11/4 Now moved to 11/11 The way this is going, it's going to be a real problem getting this car from Iowa back to Michigan the middle of December assuming it even gets built....using a carrier can be difficult this time of year. Another push back will...
  15. 2020 GT500's Scheduled For Production - Part 1

    I texted my dealer last week to delete the painted roof that I ordered and he said he would have to "email someone at Ford". Haven't heard back from him but when I pull up my order the car shows no painted roof now. My build is week of 10/28 so you shouldn't have a problem with a November build...
  16. The Down and Dirty ADM Thread

    "Lightrules" is the man!!! He hooked me up with a GT500 at MSRP and has helped many others on this forum.

    Will do. Zach is a great guy and I'm grateful to Jo Jo from this forum for turning me on to them! Highly recommend this dealership!
  18. 2020 GT500 confirmed orders

    Got my Base VIN and build week of 10/28 yesterday from my dealer. I'll receive it just in time to put her to bed for the long winter but at least it will be in my garage! Guess there is always some hope that it could be moved up.

    VIN - 0930 BUILD WEEK - 10/28 DEALER - Granger Ford - Iowa Base
  20. 2020 GT500 confirmed orders

    My dealer put my order in for my Base two weeks ago and when I spoke with him today he told me I was "unscheduled clean" and "Priority 1". He said the best he could do as a dealer was Priority 10. So I'm wondering how I got Priority 1. Anyone have any thoughts? Maybe I'll have a schedule and a...
