    Tom,
    When you say early build, what week do you consider early build when first schedule...ie if you had a date before Nov 1 you will get it this year or Oct 7th? I too hope that if they can’t deliver before winter then they just hold on building.

    They have in the past. As far as I know it is still a serious possibility. It has happened before and unless they changed their policy, it very well could happen again. Here you go everyone.....

    I am sorry, I don't know. Again, I am not an insider, however based upon my situation and the information I have received (from people on the inside), there are many reasons 500s are being pushed back.

    Just to be clear how many 2017 R models that were produced prior to the November, 2016 shutdown at FR were actually not shipped until the next Spring of 2017 and did Ford walk away from not covering any possible tire issues regarding the Cup 2 tires for any late shipped cars?

    As we all know Mother Nature can change in a moments notice therefore the FR assembly plant and Ford are in a very precarious position with respect to the yearly November production shutdown and ever changing weather conditions.

    Having said that I do not recall anyone ever mentioning on this forum that Ford has walked away from a legitimate claim with respect to Cup 2 tires being damaged while being subjected to cold weather/shipping conditions including yourself.

    BTW, I have spoken to Deysha in years past about this issue and as she explained to me and others on this forum this is certainly not Ford's intent to hold and ship cars for the following Spring by any means.

    Lastly, I would like to think that over the last 3 to 4 years that Ford has in fact changed their timing/shipping policy regarding the Cup 2 tires and if for some reason one of our members does get caught up in this issue that Ford would be there for the new purchaser as they have in the past.

    :)

    Tom: I was wondering if anyone would ask. But, no mystery, just an image I snatched from the Web that would allow enough room to insert the car. :-)

    Jeff: Not much chance of that, girlfriends tend to be expensive and, dangerous. :-)

    But, waking up at three ayem leaves a lot of available time for doodling so how about this new one?

    I think people are getting too spun up and confusing what would happen.

    Cars will stop being produced, so many peoples cars will be built in the spring.

    Cars Will be produced through Nov, and may sit, but SHOULD still be shipped asap

    I think that's what I said earlier on in the thread. Ford doesn't do this on purpose.

    Your latest avatar about sums up how I picked rapid red, LOL (except there was no car on the beach to directly compare to... and at least she was laying on a beach towel).

    Tom: Like you, I am obviously partial to Rapid Red with black stripes although I probably should gin up some cars in different colors for the other observers. :-) Meanwhile, I think this one with the car angled differently, is more better.

    Obviously this is a very important issue to all of us who have ordered 2020 GT500 cars and suggest that we all agree that it is Ford's intention to ship all GT500's this Fall and not to hold them over the cold Winter time period especially based on the severe consequences of the Cup 2 tires being subjected to sub zero weather.

    If one or two cars get caught up in the logistics of being held over the Winter by mistake and end up with possible cracked and crumbling Cup 2 tires I would encourage the owners of these specific vehicles to inspect their tires very carefully upon delivery and go on record with their dealership (in writing) and also with Ford that they reserve the right to a new set of Cup 2 tires in the event that their tires start going away down the road based on their car sitting at the FRAP holding yard over the Winter time.

    :wink:

    Good idea, Harry and let's hope no one ends up in that precarious situation.
