    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.

    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.
