Detroit area too. Plan to order convertible. Already have 2 summer weekend cars. Wife ain't gonna like a 3rd, but then I am going to tell her (near delivery time) I'm getting just a convertible Mustang (you know, V6) and trading my daily driver (Mazda6s) in on it. Just gonna be a loud and fast 'V6'. :D

Hi my name is Tom and I thought I would let everyone know my shelby was completed on 6-16-2006. I did not receive it yet and I am sitting waiting and waiting. I am wondering when it will be here. The date of delivery to the dealer was 6-29-2006 to 7-6-2006. I know they are on shutdown last week and this week but I figured it was built I would have it. It is almost 1 month since build date. I chose the white with blue stripes. I ordered my cat on 3-25-2006 I just wanted you to know maybe you can gauge your car with my experience thus far.

Thanks from Ohio...Cleveland

Hey Tom thanks for the information. VNMOUS1 has the dates from order to expected delivery spelled out pretty well for refference also. Cleveland, OH. Not too far away. I am in NW PA perhaps we can meet in the middle one day with our new rides. The anticipation of yours knowing it is built has to suck! This is killing me and mine has only been on order for ONE week!!! I couldn't imagine knowing it was built and driving by the dealer everyday to see if it was being delivered!!! Can't the dealer tell you anything??

TomC,

Mine was completed on 16 June also and I was expecting this week, but no positive news so far. I think there is the outside possibility that it has never left Flat Rock due to stripes not being applied or a QA issue. Let's hope they got out of there before the shut down! Best of luck!

Hey guys, I'm in Naperville. Got the vista blue and deleted the over the top stripes.

I think it seems worse now than earlier in the process because there is little new information. Early in the process there was a constant flow of new exciting information.
Now every web blog site simple says waiting.

How many ways can we say it!!

Bummer, Bummmer, Bummer

I was told by Ford customer service I would have a firm build date the 3rd week of July.

I really hope so.

If we ever get these things we need to find a place to get together and tell our war stories

Greetings there in NaperTucky! You can review my sig (as someone above suggested) and get a reasonable idea of what to expect. Keep in mind, I ordered mine the first day possible and they didn't start building for 3 more months....so "your mileage my vary".

Mine's sitting at the port, waiting for stripes, then it'll be shipped. Hoping for sometime this next week (w/o 7-17-06) when they return to work.

Did you get yours locally?

Hey, bj,

No, nothing new. The dealership thinks it has been shipped because their computer information says so. I tend to think it is a fluke that they just haven't seen before. I have a sneaky suspicion that it is sitting right next to yours without those darn stripes!
