I can't believe it!:D :D :D It's coming tomorrow! :) Tomorrow will be exactly 3 months from the day my dealer faxed in my order. I can't begin to tell you all how excited I am. I'm a little shocked as well, because I didn't think that the 08's would be in already and I sort of gathered from reading all of the threads that the process generally takes quite a bit longer - not to mention that I thought that they would inform me that it was in production, had a VIN, etc. Nope, nothing. He called me a few minutes ago and said the delivery truck was in-transit to the dealer and that it would be there by 9 a.m. tomorrow.:) Done.:confused:

This is it!:) This is what it's all about isn't it?? :D :D

Oldimp - I'll post all of the info on your 'master list' as soon as I get it.

I'm starting to know what the rest of you were feeling - and it feels good!:D

Thanks '07 & harley 99.:) I'm not sure I'm going to be able to control myself when I finally get behind the wheel.:D :D I think I'm going to be completely overwhelmed.:D :D (I've got to calm down...This isn't the way a 40-year old should act!)

Congratulations and enjoy that Shelby! Welcome to the club. So how long will it take before you start swapping parts?:D :D :D Took me only a few weeks.

Congrats 08SCGT500 - I know the feeling; received mine last month. Came back from vacation and received a call the very next day to come pick it up. I really did not expect it to arrive as scheduled with the July 4th shutdown at the plant - so it was quite a pleasant surprise.

Make sure they:
1. fill it up with "Premium" gas
2. install your locking lug nuts or show your where they are.
3. don't stick your temporary license directly to the paint like they did on mine :mad: - spent an hour with rubbing alchohol and cotton balls getting off the sticky residue.

Enjoy!!! it's an awesome car.

You are only 40?Where were you reared in Pa?
Pittsburgh. Why?

Though my grey hair might lead you to believe differently, yes I am "only" 40.

So much for my self confidence. Thanks, Fred.

Just drive with out a plate until you get one. That is what I did for 2 days. I went to pick up my car and when I got 1 1/2 hours down the road I remembered that we forgot to get a temp tag. Called the sales men back and he felt so bad.....so he over nighted me all the paper work to get regular plates. But it was to late to send it out that night so he sent in the next day. I jsut grabed my personal plates that I had on my dually (sold) which still had a good sticker.

flipmo, that is good question. I'm going to go through all of the old threads and start researching and getting some ideas first. I would like to focus on the parts that give you the most bang for the buck.

croz98gt,

Good point. I'll make sure to get a sticker in the window.

rpretzel,

Thanks, but I'm all over that one. In Missouri - where I live - we aren't required to have a front license plate (I couldn't be happier) so I made darn sure he repeated that back to me.
