    Ordered a 2021 GT 500 a month ago, am I being scammed by this dealer?

    I went through something similar a while back but the dealer never asked for a deposit. Its always good to find out if the deposit is refundable too. Most dealers will do this in case of a life changing event. I also was told at the time that 21 production would go until late December so you may...

    JLT Cod Air Intake Dragstrip Results.

    Interesting....on a side note, why does the Mach 1 get the open air filter but the GT500 has an enclosed box? My buddies Redeye is the same, open filter. Maybe Ford didnt want any extra heated air getting into the engine knowing that the intake air was already going to be compressed and...

    Got my 21 Antimatter Blue ordered

    CobraBob, Thanks and yes thats why I love dark blues. Friends and neighbors that have seen it outside really like the color. Its a very heavy metallic too so when the sun is on it, does it ever pop. Yes Im glad things worked out the way they did.

    DCT question

    I love the 6 speed TR-6060 in my Viper. It has the best clutch/shifter feel of any manual trans car Ive owned but Id still take a DCT over it in a heartbeat.

    DCT question

    Ok, makes sense because today was the first time I got on the gas that hard. Ive been driving it easy with just rolling on the gas some or easy pulls in manual mode with the paddles. It just felt weird getting on the gas pretty good and it not dropping low enough. I know with an engine that revs...

    DCT question

    So today I was on the freeway getting some more miles in, its over 400 now. I was in sport mode about 70, just cruising. A truck was coming up on me fairly quick so I thought why not punch it and speed up, then move over. So I hit the gas pretty hard and the car went from 7th to 3rd I think. It...

    Heads/cam viper vs built Whipple Cobra

    Great runs! Launching a viper hard from a dig is tricky. They are light but can burn the tires for a block no problem. I think they're actually stronger from a roll due to the tall gearing and traction is usually out of the equation by then. For example, I can go to 2nd gear at 60mph and the...

    How's the sound system? Base and B&O

    I have the B&O system and I think its pretty nice. Definitely has a lot of power and sounds awesome but then you have to ask how much do you want to listen to the radio while driving this car? For a factory unit, it rocks though. Glad it has a CD player still too.

    ‘22 order upcoming let’s talk new color choices

    I was told by a Ford zonal manager that the only changes were new color options. Powertrain wise, its strictly carryover

    Couple of videos on the Tremec DCT for your Friday!

    This unit could very well find itself as an option in the mustang lineup along with a manual trans. Imagine this DCT in a Mach 1 instead of a 10 sp auto? Or down the road offered in a reg GT instead of a conventional auto. Its more efficient and you dont get convertor slip which could help...

    Couple of videos on the Tremec DCT for your Friday!

    Agreed, this DCT is probably the biggest tipping factor towards me buying a new GT500. I didnt care anything about all the past GT500s while I owned a 04 Cobra. All those GT500s were just a supercharged V8 with another 6sp manual. I knew what that formula was like and wanted something different...

    Got my 21 Antimatter Blue ordered

    Its a very dark color. Ive had 2 neighbors think it was black but it was cloudy out and they were across the street. When they got closer they could tell it was dark blue. In the sun or under lights, its blue no doubt just a deep blue. I like dark blues though. When I first heard Ford was going...

    Got my 21 Antimatter Blue ordered

    I love that color and thats why I had to get a 21, its a 1 year only color. So yeah I paid over sticker for the first time ever on a vehicle but I wanted it. All the other cars I got under sticker so I think Im still ahead lol. Honestly, I didnt turn the radio on til the next day and I tried it...

    No Recaros for me

    I drove my new 21 home today and its got Recaros. I love the feel/support but today after about 280 miles it seemed like the lower seat bolstering began to push into the sides of my thighs. Im 6'2" 220 but back/shoulders were fine. Also these seats are new and stiff. They may soften up/recontour...

    Got my 21 Antimatter Blue ordered

    Update: Ok so a week ago, the dealer that tried to order my car called and said Ford wouldnt take the order now due to time constraints and that they had all the 21 orders they could take/fulfill. So I got back in touch with the out of state dealer that still had the exact car I wanted but they...

    Got my 21 Antimatter Blue ordered

    Ive been told ordering ends Oct 1 but production is supposed to go til Dec 23. Im hoping this is a temporary thing. An article I read today said they were going to try to resume production Sep 20. Im pretty set on this color so I dont know if Id try for a 22 or not, havent thought that far down...

    Got my 21 Antimatter Blue ordered

    Well damn. Due to the gas leak at the plant and its closure, my dealer called me today after talking to the Ford rep and my order may or may not be good now. I guess it depends on how long this delay is and I'll just have to wait and see what happens. Bummer

    Got my 21 Antimatter Blue ordered

    Yeah if I were you, Id really check out that color in person before ordering. I went and looked at a Atlas blue F250 last weekend just to see it. Its a great color of blue but its bright and I like more navy blues. Im not sure how durable those rims are to be honest. I know this was taken into...

    Got my 21 Antimatter Blue ordered

    I just recently saw pics of that Oil Slick Blue/Purple. Its like the Mystic/Mystichrome Cobras of old. Im sure that'll be a rare car, congrats! I did the AM blue, white stripes, recaros, cabon fiber dash, tech pkg and handling pkg. Also got a blue cover. Yeah ADMs are a given now on these things...

    Got my 21 Antimatter Blue ordered

    Cool, thanks for sharing that. I'll follow up with him tomorrow and see if he can provide me with that documentation. Yesterday after he sent me the order summary, he said he was going to put the order in immediately due to time constraints. I called him a little later to verify something and he...

    Got my 21 Antimatter Blue ordered

    I will as soon as the dealer has them. He sent me a order summary that he got from Ford showing the build along with a order number but he said options could still be changed if I wanted to.

    Got my 21 Antimatter Blue ordered

    Distance was part of it. The amount over sticker played into it as well. The local dealer said we can order you what you want for the amount I was willing to pay over sticker. The dealer with the car in stock was holding out for more. I like the Antimatter Blue. I was in Florida on vacation a...

    Got my 21 Antimatter Blue ordered

    No I wasnt given a VIN or estimated delivery date. I think the VIN comes later once the order has been accepted and put into the system at the factory. I asked about a date and the dealer told me he wont know for a bit yet, that everything is a little crazy right now, but that it could be...
