    I've had a deal in place for almost exactly two years now and it has been an interesting ride from inception to today. Thanks to some great guys and gals I can share some photos as my baby (0756) took her first breath.

    Congrats!

    Any photos I've ever received like that always came with a blanket "you can't post them" clause.

    How'd you do that?

    Excellent. Nobody is happier for you than me. People like us should have gotten ours first.

    I ordered the very first day possible 7/1/19 within a couple hours of the banks being opened at Ford. So seeing orders that were placed way after mine being placed ahead of me was a bit of a struggle I suppose. But everyone's a winner in 2019 so that's the way it goes.:) I'm just glad there was no strike at Ford and these badboys can finally roll off the line.

    Beautiful!! Love the spec you chose as well. White, no stripes, with black roof looks incredibly sexy. Can't wait for this forum to be flooded with owner pictures. And what it must feel like to be waiting on such a special car built exactly how you want. I look forward to doing the same one day :)

    "No issues. Started right up."

    Music to your ears. Tob and I just LOVE white. But I've had too many white vehicles so I switched up. :-)

    I actually had originally ordered Rapid red. The large white accents (gray, whatever) on the Recaros had me rethink the scheme though so I chose white in attempt to reduce the overall number of different colors on the car. Plus, after seeing my good friends 2019 ZR1 Corvette with the exact same color combination - I was sold.
