Since Tungsten is no longer available, it may be the rarest and fastest.:D :D Now you see them, now you don't, and that goes for second gear as well.:rolleyes:

You were right again. Red beat out white by 387 units between coupes and verts.;) Your paint shop numbers were right.

flipmo,

Then your pictures don't do your car justice as the stripes look like they are white. Maybe it's just the angle that the pictures were taken on.

In any case, that's a great colour combo (Alloy and Tungsten stripes). That was my original choice, however it is not offered on the 2008 model year, so I went totally with what my 11 year old son wants to see in the driveway and that is Red with Black stripes (as per my avatar).

Take care.

Thanks Arbour. Yes, guess I got lucky because I different have a color preference in mind before buying. My gut feeling said, "Get the Alloy w/Tungsten." I've been told several times that the stripes look white. No, they are Tungsten, that's why the car is soooooooooooo fast!!!!!!!!!:eek: :eek:

They don't send them anymore. You have to order it from SVT and last I heard the charge was $40. They should be availible in the next week or two.

I just got off the phone with Chris at SVT and he stated exactly. This issue of issuing certificates is currently undergoing some kind of legal review. But they will be sending them out in mass. He currently has a laundry list he's working with.

The certificate "will" cost somewhere in the neighborhood of $40 to $60 bucks and all currently on the list will be getting a phone call soon. My name is on there.

croz98gt,

Thanks for putting down the production numbers.

Of the numbers shown, is it possible to know how many of each combo were produced for the Canadian market (i.e. speedo and guages in metric)?

Or can you provide me with a contact name and number and I'll do the ground work?

Thanks.

I haven't heard anything about that, nor did I ask? but you could call the 800# and tell the person who answers the phone that you had a few question about the production #'s on the GT500 and they will send you over the the correct department. 1-800-ford-svt

croz98gt,

I guess I could have read the very first part of this thread where you clearly identify the contact and telephone number, but that would have been too easy.

I'll give them a call.

Thanks again.

Arbour88,

Could you post any info you find out on the Canadian figures as I would be interested in knowing them too.

Thanks
