I have nothing interesting to say. Just wanted to be the first to post in a new forum and welcome any fellow Canadians (or anyone else who visits here). Can't wait to see the cars up close. All the pictures look awesome.

I just found out that Ford in Canada is only selling Shelbys through SVT dealers. Unfortunately we are NOT an SVT dealer so won't be getting one at all. My chances of getting one were slim anyhow. I have three customers (serious buyers) who want one, but I didn't take any deposits so none are going to be PO'd at me. Too bad....I haven't seen a car that has peaked my interest, like the Shelby, in a long long time. Guess I will just have to add it to my wish list of cars I would like to have.

Hi there Sofa_King (funny name by the way),
I'm here in Alberta and as far as I know I am getting a GT500. Are you certain that they are only going to be sold to SVT dealers, even though SVT is no longer going to exist after April 1st?
Also, any word on a Canadian MSRP? I've heard everything from $50,000 up to $65,000.
It's hard to find out any info from Ford Head Quarters....
Have a good one.

Hey GT 500,
Did your SVT guy tell you that you would not have to pay over MSRP? I am # 5 here in Calgary (even though my login says #7) and my SVT guy says that I am not going to pay over MSRP, but I did talk to a nasty SVT guy in Edmonton who said that they were going to charge $30,000 above MSRP, based on what is going on in the States. Needless to say, I will NEVER consided buying anything from that sales guy or his dealership.
My SVT guy says the same for a Canadian MSRP, $50k - $55k. The A$$hole in Edmonton said it would be $60k - $65k + a $30K markup... I hope that he never sells one.
Anyway, best of luck to you.
What colour are you getting? I'm think the "Alloy" with Stripes or simply Black (I currently own an 01 Cobra Black/Black, which I am selling if you know of anyone who's looking)

Buy them both!! With the short supply, and buyers willing to pay just about anything, you can't lose. In fact I would buy one from you.

The info I got about SVT dealers only in Canada came off the Ford.ca website. Click on the "Join us at the 2006 Autoshow" icon then the "Ford Shelby GT500" icon, then watch the video. Near the end they say available exclusively through SVT Dealers......Crap

That's right gt 500,
I can confirm that Ford Canada is only selling through it's SVT dealers. As for the no markup across Canada, I hope that is true, but I think that I mentioned it in an earlier post that a SVT dealer in the northern half of Alberta was looking for a $30k markup. I hope that Ford of Canada enforces this no markup policy. Thanks for the good news. Have a good one. By the way, i like your colour choice. I think that I'd like to see that "Alloy" colour before i make my final choice.

I just got a notice this morning, from Ford, that Canadian order guides will be released on April 3. We won't have prices for a while, but I am going to try and order one right away. Our system will not accept our order if they are SVT only. I don't know when Ford will give allotments, but will post here when I find out.

No order guide yet for us lowly NON-SVT dealers. Bulletin on Monday Apr 03 said that the order guides were out. My guess is that we won't be able to order one unless we go through an SVT dealer and why would they sell to another dealer when there aren't enough cars to fill the retail demand.
