Well, after waiting 9 weeks with no progress on my order I started looking aoround for an 05 Vert. With Fred Fred's help I located a hand full within a few hundred mile radius. Unfortunately after calling all of them I was educated again on the economic princple of supply and demand. Not wanting to be completely ripped off and have to travel to get the car, I decided to pass.
Then this past Friday for some reason I decide to stop in at my local Ford dealer, this one is the closest dealer to my house and not the one I placed my original order with. I hadn't seen any GT's on their lot, let alone verts! When I get there a young sales guy comes out and I ask if he has any GT's. At this point I am considering just getting a coupe since the verts are impossible to find in the Northeast. He says, "I don't have any coupe GT's, but I have a Vert GT inside." So, once I picked myself up off the floor I went in to look at it and within 2 hours it was parked in my driveway! Turns out is was a customer order that they has just got in and the original buyer backed out! Talk about my lucky day, I am still pinching myself to see if this could possible be true!
Granted I spent a little more for this one then the one I had ordered but i'm not looking back! I plan to keep this car forever so in a few years the price won't even matter to me. The best part is the only difference between this car and the one I ordered is the color. I had ordered Legend Lime (still love this color) and the one I bought is Satin Silver. I love the silver too and it was one of my top choices so I am thrilled!
I spent the whole weekend cleaning and waxing it and loved every minute of it. My good friend has an 05 Vette so we went out and took a ton of pics. Here is a link to his site where all the pics are: http://www.bpurcell.org/trips/stangandvette/index.cfm
For all of you with orders pending, I wish you the best of luck! Once you get the car you're gonna love it more then you can imagine!
