    All I can say is I feel sorry for all you guys. I have played that whole game to the point that I'm out. The whole allocation process and ADM is just totally ridiculous. You would think you were buying a friggin Chiron! Plain and simple Ford can make cars like this but their dealers don't have a clue! About anything! How are you guys going to feel bringing your 6 figure GT500 to the average Ford dealer for service? Christ I don't even trust them with my RS's! Amazing.

    I feel you man. It was a lot of work to find this car and make a deal I was comfortable with. I’ve also thought about service. The dealerships within an hour of me are complete retards. I’m going to have to do some serious research on where to take this thing once I ever get it.

    Going by my text messages,

    I "placed" the Order July 2nd, Got a text saying zone rep was attempting to schedule on July 15, July 17 priority code to 01, Unscheduled-Clean.

    On 7/25 he texts saying he got a text on 7/24 my order was put in but he was not in the office. So 7/25 i saw my VIN/Build date of 9/23

    That's pretty darn quick. The next couple of months should be pretty interesting. If I remember correctly, Ford schedules future productions every Friday.
    If this is correct, we should start seeing scheduled weeks 9/30, 10/07, 10/14, 10/21, 10/28, 11/04, 11/11, 11/18, 11/25 and 12/02.

    That's the big question. We will just have to wait and see.

    GUYS i appreciate all the information, but I can't understand why not 1 or 2, BUT 4 dealers that i have talked to say they are 'waiting' on allocations. The way its been described there is no WAITING once paid, the only thing to wait on is the order banks which we all know are open. So i have 4 dealers that are morons or dealers that are shady. The idiocracy of this is mind numbing. Surely there is a computer system or screen, a printout, a daily report, a person, a filing cabinet, etc that shows whether a dealer has an allocation? Surely there not going to the general ledger at Ford and looking for $2000 payment to verify. How can i help my guy figure this out, or uncover his shenanigans, who can i call or who can help me?

    The explanation could be, they already used the allocations they had and they are waiting (hoping) for additional allocations.

    Possible explanation: If they can't make a sale, they still don't want another dealer to get you or your money even if they have to lie. So, am not surprised that some lies work better than others and are common.

    I heard from another dealer that I was calling early in the year saying they got a 2nd allocation.. it was a tele sales guy so I value nothing that came out of his mouth.

    The only thing I can think of is that they are holding the allocation to see what kind of adm they can get.

    Also, you need to speak w/ sales mgr or gm. Nothing else.

    I just found out that my dealer was offered $15,000 for their allocation by another dealer if it was a golden ticket. I was told that the regional manager wasn’t even sure of the golden ticket allocation in my region.

    So maybe dealers are still holding onto their allocations to see what sort of ADM they can get or what they can sell the allocation for

    I found a good local Ford dealer today, central PA. Confirmed they are in the Shelby program, will never charge AMD confirmed with the owner. Their 1 guaranteed 2020 allocation is spoken for (not me) but if anyone is interested in getting a potential 2nd from them or a 2021 let me know.

    Also i have nothing to do with the dealer, i just drove by and decided to stop and ask.

    If you’re in the Canadian Market and are willing to pay adm almost every dealer I was in contact with from Alberta to Ontario has between 4-6 allocations. Alberta avg adm $35k. Manitoba and Saskatchewan $30k. West Ontario $35k. GTA $50k, Ottawa $35k

    Dealers in the GTA suck each other off and stick to that adm the longest

    Something is fishy, the zone reps have that information. Getting the run around is bs
