i thought the same thing. Been lots of vacation already, but I’m sure the union contract dictates the summer vacation. All plants shut down for them. Arkansas??? That’s a long commute to Michigan!
They’ve had multiple weeks of vacation already this year! Sounds like a nice gig working at Flat Rock, besides the fact that you live in Arkansas.

I thought Flat Rock was in Arkansas for some reason. LOL. Michigan is meh too.

I feel like if the plant is down, they don't get scheduled/paid. I could be wrong though. Or maybe I'm partially right and they get a reduced wage when the plant is down.

Having worked in automotive manufacturing for quite a bit of my career, I believe that most actual Ford employees will get partial pay while they're off and are also allowed to collect unemployment, or something to that effect not totally sure. However, a lot of production workers are hired through temp agencies and they technically work for the temp agency so the temp agencies will assign them to work somewhere else.

I'M from the SE PA area too. I'm considering ordering a Rapid Red 2022 GT.
I also may trade a 2013 Mustang Premium 6sp with low miles. If it's ok with you, can you tell me which dealer you ordered from? As you're probably aware, inventory is very low in our area. I believe you were saying you got 1K off of MSRP. Did this dealer give you a decent amount for your trade? Thanks

I was able to take advantage of the $1000 Bonus Cash for ordering a 2022. It's a current Ford program. I think, valid until sometime in June or July.

I did fine with my trade...no complaints at any point thus far.

I ordered at Winner Ford Cherry Hill. We've bought our last 4 Fords there.

My 201A Eruption Green just went into production status. I was originally scheduled for next week.
In production as well, as of this morning 🥳

At some point, now I need to get my lazy ass under my car and swap my cat-back over to stock again.

Mustang Thunderbird F150 & '22 Mach 1 on order.
Mine is showing in production this morning as well. it was originally scheduled for May 2, May 9, and most recently May 16. Still no window sticker though.
I wonder when it first shows up like that, what process is taking place? Is the chassis getting welded up, is the chassis getting painted, or is it on the main assembly line, painted and ready to come alive???

I checked with Ford Performance on chat and they said that it was still in the body shop.
I just checked with the guy at the dealership that handles orders (this was about 6hrs later).
He said a customer called looking for a GT so he checked on what they had coming in and saw that mine had made it into the plant. :) So maybe, hopefully another month or less!!!

'22 mustang EcoBoost premium 200A Grabber blue
Placed an order for an EcoBoost premium 200A in grabber blue back on 3/31/22. Got the confirmation email but still waiting on a VIN/build date. Priority code was 19. The not knowing any form of a date is killing my anxiety.

Just out of curiosity, has anyone with a May 23rd build week experienced their car going into production early yet?
