Still holding my breath my Ralph, my engineer contact at IAA, AKA The Mustang Plant, told me my car will be on the rail come Friday, and that it will take ten days to get the cars down to KC. I'm going to have my cars in time for the 4th of July, once the stripes and tinting are put on......Road trip straight out of the gate!!!! For those of you who have been waiting.....He told me they are coming

Yeah owning two 5.0s is awesome, but you want to know what's better?

Please please guys dont bail !!! I know I have'nt been waiting as long as most of you but I too was getting tired of waiting.My car was ordered 4/17 and I was just about to cancell and pick up a 2010 GT at my dealer.

It looks like things are starting to move along now so I'm waiting on it for sure now.Hang in there gang and soon we will have our cars.

I think I'll be at the point of canceling if I don't get more info on my order by the beginning of next week. I ordered on 3/24, had the car built on 4/12, and an ETA of 4/20 that hasn't ever changed. Meanwhile, there's a Kona Blue / white OTT stripe at a dealership 40 miles away from me, with the 3.73 axle and 19" wheels. No Brembos, but I feel like the tires/wheels are the more important part of that package anyway.

So at this point I don't think I'm waiting for any good reason.

It's tough seeing 2011's showing up at dealers before your ordered cars,especially when It's more than a couple.My dealer only has 3 V6's all automatics and 1 shelby for 55K but not a single 2011 GT

I have a feeling my car will come in with the first GT's even though it was a retail order.I'm deciding on what mods I want to do first. I hope by the time my car arrives there are more exhaust options.

I just got back from a test drive of a 2011 GT with 3.73. Very quick. Not very loud though. First mod for sure. The shifts are very close togather and will take a little getting used to. All-in-all, sweet! Dealer called me to take a test drive while I wait for mine. Ordered 4/19...............Been sitting at 51 for since 5/25.............Newest guess is 6/30.

(734) 782-7800 ask for Ralph. I'm dead serious. He's the only one I believe at this point. Ronn, Wintermute, I'm not kidding. tell him this guy outta Kansas told you to call!!!!! He's gotten me my information and he's an engineer. He's even asked me to call back after we've driven them, so he loves them too! (he Better IMO lol):kooky:

Remind him that I've ordered two cars and that he remembered both of my vins and not his Anniversery, which is today or tomorrow! Tell him this......

You will not be sorry that you called, I promise.

Yeah, I'd love to give him a call but I'm a little concerned about calling him along with a million other people...
