Hi all - just received the DORA for my 2008 Alloy/Silver Stripe Coupe, all options navigation and sirius. I put my name on the list May of 06, this is the fourth car (first 2008) that the local dealer has ordered/recieved. Best part - MSRP. Dealer says 12 weeks to delivery from DORA - is that about right? I have a 96 Saleen Cobra Convertible and a 68 GT 390 Coupe to sell in the interim so I guess it's time!

Welcome! Congrats on the msrp deal. As for delivery time, it all depends on where your dealership falls in the build priority. Dealers with lots of mustang sales get a higher priority than smaller dealers. I ordered from a small dealer, and it took 403 days from order to delivery.

I placed an "order" including color/specs etc. last May for a 2007 and gave the dealer a $500 deposit (which he held). According to the sales manager, they are informed by the regional sales director/manager when they can place an official order. They seem to be getting one car about every 4 months. When they called (monday the 24th), I had to place the order that day (after waiting for several months)! Today I was faxed a 2008 Dealer Order Reciept Acknowledgement (processed 7/25/07). I certainly do not know how the system works - not sure the dealer does either. They are fairly large but not a presidential or SVT dealer.

I tried to post photo's of the 68 GT 390 as well as my Boss 302, but I believe I have to have 4 posts? in order to do so. If there is another way, let me know. Thanks.

Ok, here are the stablemates for the new GT 500. I am parting with the Saleen Cobra and the 68 GT 390, need the room and its time to simplify my life. I will probably be buried in the Boss.
