Thumbs up Bad news about my car turns into great news!!

Well Everyone,

If you didn't read my "My 2011 is not being delivered!" thread, I was one of the 18 vehicles that had to be scrapped. Well I am sending out a BIG THANK YOU to Jeff @ Yocum Ford (05fordgt from TMS) and the higher ups at Ford because I am getting my car (sort of). They found my exact car at another dealership and it has already been delivered to Jeff. I am picking it up Saturday June 26th!!! When I talked to Ford management they were doing everything they could to either rush a new order through or locate a vehicle. Well the later happened and I can't wait to take delivery!

Jeff took a couple quick pics when it was delivered today....

Congratulations! that is great to hear Ford and your Ford dealer did the right thing. I have a feeling that Ford wants to get this right, although the release has been slower than everyone wanted.

Thanks! I really like the contrast also between the Grabber Blue, the black top, and the darker wheels.

Dude, that is a fantastic looking car!

I LOVE my GT/CS, I'm sure that you'll love yours as well.

Can you send me your VIN and build date? As I've mentioned before I'm trying to figure out a few things about the 2011 GT/CS mustang. So far there have only been 2 build dates.

Thanks! The VIN# is 1ZVBP8FF4B5118599. I think the build was 5/6/10. I didn't check when I looked up the window sticker. I won't be picking up the car until next Saturday.

Congratulations! great to see that Ford's doing the right thing....now if they would work on CS giving accurate info to everyone else.....however, I do believe that they're trying to get the cars out with no problems, which will make everyone happy in the long run

I was talking to people that were pretty high up the corporate ladder to resolve my situation.
