    Got an update on mine: order date 4/8/2021, expected at dealer 8/6/2021. VIN #2779 from Long Lewis Ford, order 6048 Given production challenges, is that date realistic or will it be delayed?

    It’s more complex than that. There is no IP protection in China so if you make something there they steal the process and the product. That is a violation of international law but there are no real consequences. As a friend who runs global ops for a fortune 100 firm says “ moving a plant to...

    the US didn’t let expertise go. The Chinese stole intellectual property. Don’t confuse these. They aren’t the same.

    I choose not to support Chinese enterprises and choose to vote for employers who choose to support my country. While I cannot avoid Chinese made products on all purchases, those I can I act. I vote with my dollars. I work in the US oil business and a personal value is to support our fellow...

    and that’s your right. And it’s mine to avoid buying Chinese made goods whenever possible. I don’t need to buy this and won’t, because it’s made in China. My money, my choice. It isn’t the cost for me. It’s China.

    I’ve driven the latest Gen Camaro and the horrible visibility complaints are well earned. It has easily the worst visibility of any car I’ve driven. You can get used to lots of things, but that doesn’t make them good.
  13. 2020 Shelby GT500 and GT350 Dealer Allocation

    $25k over sticker? I appreciate that—i have found one for $10k over but the asking price has an implication. Hmmm. Not a a buyer at $10k ADM.....above that it isn’t better

    and to be clear, you were the one who objected to a question I didn’t ask. Don’t look at me for following up to your abstract objection to a question I didn’t ask. It’s just a. Car, not religion.

    You most certainly are a feisty lass. I asked a question. Don’t get your panties twisted up into a wad.

    Does a car’s aspiration type determine what class it belongs in? Does a 911 GT3RS that is n/a operate in a different stratosphere than a GT500 but in the same as a GT350R? I’d compare price more closely than engine aspiration but none of it matters to me. I’m not big on abstract press based...

    I could but I’m meeting with a staff member now. Feel free to enjoy a trip down memory lane and look up the press releases from 2019.

    They didn’t tell me individually. However, at the launch event they told the entire world. The press release quoted Ed Krenz (GT500 chief engineer) and I believe he knows what he designed. The headline of the press release actually mentioned street and track. Cool, right?

    I am renting a Camaro right now. What a horrible car. Sight lines from hell. Blind spots everywhere. Awful controls and ergonomics. I own a Porsche 911S and am 1st on my dealer’s list for a CFTP car with painted stripes. Which is will drive for pleasure and occasionally track, but mostly...
