    Yes, they are starting to be scheduled for Production.

    Ford is a bit Earlier than anticipated, my car is scheduled to be built on 5/1

    Looks like my 2008 will be up in the for sale section this weekend.

    The above post may come off as abrasive, insensitive, or condescending in nature. Chances are, it was provoked by not being able to fix stupid.

    My dealer emailed me.

    I have a great dealer, thankfully.

    Usually I get word of these things about the same time he does. But he was ahead of the game this time.

    Then again, I put in my order probably 30mins after the banks opened, so I assume I am pretty high on the priority list.

    Good question.

    Since my dealer is 789 miles away, i can't go in to ask, and I just sent him an email.

    That's pretty awesome. An early/mid June delivery would give you plenty of time to get acquainted before you have to put it up for winter.

    I'm going to try to take a hands off approach and just listen for updates as they come. If I get too worked up, I'll make myself miserable.

    I'll buy lunch and beer if you drive her down the cape on a weekend this summer. We can hit the beach too.

    I'm sure there will be many saturdays I go to Dennis to check on my house, or fix something one of my weekly rental tenants broke :-/

    But you really should be coming up for some of our events!

    Maybe when I get my Shelby I will. I've never gone to any car event and I'm shy I guess.

    We're definitely gonna have to meet up this summer. I'll drive to Dennis or you can visit me in Mashpee.
