The numbers on the 09's won't be out for awhile. I called the other day to see how many like my car were built and the guy I spoke to said a few more months before they have the 09 production #'s. I didn't order mine. I waited to find the right deal. One Saturday afternoon (9/12/08 to be exact) I sat at my laptop and did a search of Ford dealers in a 100 mile radius. If they had them they wanted 10 to 15k over sticker. Most didn't have one to sell. The last call I made was to Jack Madden Ford in Norwood Mass. The manager answered the phone. I told him I was looking for an 08 or 09 Gt 500. Expecting the usual answer of No he says "I'm looking at one on the floor next to my desk" an 09 Black on Black full stripe delete (has all other goodies and shaker 1000). I told him if you will sell it at sticker I'll be there in a half hour. He put me on hold for about 2 minutes came back and said " If you come today it's at sticker" And as they say the rest is history. I picked it up and drove it home on 9/16/08. I originally was going to have Tasca Ford in R.I. put the stripe package on it but after about 20 people said they loved it the way it was I left it the way she came from the factory. I love it.
