Hello guys and Happy Pre Thanksgiving. Just throwing this out there for the guys that may have had their orders cancelled or cars never built. I text my salesman to wish him a happy thanksgiving and he told me that they are getting a 21’ performance blue GT500 with 500 miles on it. It was a car that they originally sold new and I guess that the owner didn’t really drive it. I have a pic of the car when it was new when he tried to get me to buy it new before my order. I have no skin in this game. Just putting it out there.

Kind of weird though because on the dealers website it says that the cars MSRP is 117k but the window sticker is only 102 so I hope that they don’t try to get over on anyone.

Well, chassis N3318 is here after shipment was delayed from northern NY due to the Buffalo snow.

My AMG C63S is gone on trade back up to NY 🥲

This is a Base HE that I found for $5k over sticker and couldn’t pass it up.

Been a fun weekend doing tons of garage startups for friends coming to see it. Went for one 10 mile drive to a local town and already had multiple people saying how they loved the car, as I was driving by.

The car is filthy from getting snowed on and not having the dealer touch it (no wash, all stickers on, etc). First thing tomorrow it goes for PPF, ceramic and tint.

Looking forward to a more thorough intro write up when I have time and after I’ve driven more than 10 miles below 40 mph.

One question I do have. When I pop the hood and then press the two pin release buttons, the hood doesn’t really do much of anything. It doesn’t lift enough to reach in and press the release lever. I have to grab in the little 1/2” that the hood did lift and yank, and then it pops up enough to reach in and get to the release lever. Is that normal? Otherwise I feel like something is off or misaligned.

Bad Ass Congrats on finally getting the car, as far as the hood latch I press the drivers side passenger side then grab the hood on each side by the headlights and give it a gentle pull up to expose the latch in the middle.

Congratulations to you and good luck with it. The hood does not pop up when you press the hood pins. I usually pull up the hood above the headlights on either side to get to the latch.

My car has not moved from the train car it’s on. I even drove to the train depot to see if they had it just sitting out in the ocean air. It appears it must still be on the train as the gps map I saw at the dealership showed it in the train yard and not in the storage lot. The lot is in a very bad area and I really hope they get it out of the salt air soon. It has been at the depot since 11/07. This is crazy.

My car was showed as built on 11/7, and was in preparing to ship status until yesterday. Yesterday it said shipped but at the same time the dealer sent me pics of the car's arrival. I'm guessing the Ford tracking site is significantly delayed. Chass #3250.

Are you in California? Your signature says Bay Area so am curious if that’s nor cal. My car has been at the Richmond rail depot for a month.

Yes Richmond is nearby. It's not the best area to be in but I'm sure it's secure or else we'd hear something. Weather here has been decent lately if that's any consolation. That would kill me if that was close by me for a month. Insane.

I drove to the depot to see if they just had it sitting out there waiting to have the wheels stolen. It was in one of the train cars apparently. It had something to do with the pending strike I am told and staffing at the Richmond depot. 500 fords waiting to be offloaded. What I don’t understand is how your car was built and shipped after mine made it to the dealer first.

this was true for most cars including mine built in the 9/14ish week. There were several chassis #'s built the week after at the dealer over a month before mine landed.

Trying to apply logic to the build/delivery process for the '22 GT500's is futile. I am sure it has to do with a missing part or two, that once it comes in, they install it on the cars already on the assembly line and then who knows how they decide which car in the Flat Rock parking lot to go get first and install them on those. One example - I know of (2) HE CFTPs both scheduled to deliver to Illinois. The 10/13 Blend date car just arrived at the dealer ($140K at Fair Oaks Ford if anyone is interested) and the 9/13 Blend date car is still sitting in Flat Rock.
