#211 of 1138 STILL WAITING.....
Jun 04, 2005 (1:18 pm)
Hi ya'all.....here it is, June 4th, NO MUSTANG GT. Ordered November 2004. Last call to Ford Direct - "the computer is still waiting to pick my number"....this is really bull. I did talk to my dealer also, he's waiting to get the ordering info on the 2006 model. Soon as he gets, I can come in and re=order, says I will get first priority due to the hassle I've had to endure. I've about had enough. I wanted my 2005 to drive this summer, not a 2006 maybe next year!! If my 2005 does happen to come in yet before they start building the 06, I can either go ahead and take delivery of that, or if I'd rather have a 2006 he'll put the 05 on his lot to sell. He said he was at a ford seminar, and heard up to 13,000 won't be built. Shoot, I'd already seen that information posted here over a month ago, not telling me nothing I didn't already know!
Yes, my 96 is a beauty, 44,000 miles, deep violet (purple) and I do get many compliments on that car. Most cannot believe it's a 96! I'm debating trading it or selling outright....if I trade, will be lucky to get $6000 - does anyone out there have any idea what I can get selling it myself? I'm thinking in the $7500 range....?? I live in Wisconsin, so my time for selling myself is running low, people don't buy Mustangs in Wisconsin in November (LOL...I did in 96!) If I could afford the insurance on 2 stangs and had a place to park it, I'd love to keep her.
Would appreciate any pricing idea's anyone might have for my 96...NEVER been smoked in, never in any kind of an accident, gets detailed twice a year. It's a baby.......
Has anyone out there ordered their 2006 yet????? If you have, I'm gonna be a little hot at my dealer for holding me off, once again!!

Wow I did a search and looked at the 06 colors and am so very very glad we were able to get the sonic blue 05! I don't like the 06 blues. Yes it does change color, have you seen the purple shade of it yet? Honda has a VTX 1800 bike that is painted an Illusion Blue, it changes colors like the Sonic Blue Mustang. Hubby said we weren't going to put many miles on this car so it would last more years. Well dang it, he's already put on 800 miles in a week and a half!!!! He just enjoys driving it so much!!!

Yes, I love my sonic blue GT. Alot of sun here in AZ and I do see the changes of color. It's really sharp. 800 miles in a week+?? Pretty big garage you have .
I have done a little better, just 450 miles on it in 4 weeks, but I live right across the street from where I work. This is just pleasure driving.

Just got a V6 Dark Red Mustang Deluxe for 19.2k out the door. I had a chance to get an A plan, but that would have taken time and I doubt that car would have been there, and I had lots of trouble trying to get a dealer who will honor an X plan, so im happy with what I got... Clutch is takin some time getting used to, and alot of people want to race as if I have a GT, nice problems to have.

I am also awaiting my '06 Mustang GT. I went to the dealer right before (not knowing) that they stopped production on the '05's in April. So, I am awaiting my '06. I am qualified for the Zplan through a friend (who I can't contact now) but I don't know the incentives. I rather someone other than the Sales rep. tell me. Does anyone know what the pricing structure is? Am I price protected? Is it invoice? I heard production for the '06 starts August 8th, 2005 does anyone know if they are placing orders yet for the '06 orders yet?

Where at in Va? I live in Richmond however I bought my mustang from Freedom Ford in Norfolk. They have two locations, one in Norfolk and one in Hampton. They were exactly 4000.00 cheaper than the same mustang in Richmond. Plus their extended warranty, which I got, was way cheaper and if you do not use their warranty anytime during the warranty period you can come back and purchase another vehicle and that warranty will transfer for free to the new vehicle. Anatoly Korlick was my salesperson. Excellent. I have a 1999 GT Electric Green with 74000 miles. Shop around before purchasing.

You may qualify for the Z plan but a dealer does not have to honor it. In this case if you want a Mustang GT be prepared to pay at least MSRP. Why would a dealer sell a high demand car for less then what they can get (MSRP or more)?

I will try to make this brief, but I have been reading this forum for awhile now and, to some of you who have ordered Mustangs, please keep waiting and have hope! My son (16) has had the Mustang "want mode" every since he went to the State Fair in late 2004. I went to a local dealer (Park Cities Ford) in April and, of course, they had 1-a convertible with a stick. My kiddo, believe it or not, is very conservative and a better driver than I am (I'm 53--and I speed-a lot!), so I definitely wanted a GT (because I may drive it some) and I definitely wanted an automatic--my stick days went out with my '69 Corvette in urban traffic. Anyway, I ordered one in April, and I picked it up Tuesday, June 7th, exactly as ordered--black, automatic, shaker 1000, interior upgrade (black/red leather and my color instruments)--I also ordered a LoJack system and 60mo/60k mile warranty. I was already conditioned to pay sticker when I arrived, and I did so without hesitation. And, now some praise for you Fomoco guys from a GM guy--this is my first Ford ever, and the quality, fit, finish, and appearance is not just good--it is flawless. I think I may covert from the GM fold as the only thing close to the Mustang in price/performance is the Corvette at significantly more $$$. Also, if anyone is interested, Park Cities Ford has a gorgeous GT convertible (automatic) on the deaker's floor. So, to those of you waiting, don't give up--and congratulations to the new owners out there! Ford has hit one out of the park with this one.

Thanks for the heads up. I just got my order # today for my '06 Mustang GT. Actually, the dealer is giving me just MSRP with no markup as I was a VIP referrel. so, there is no complaints either way!!!!

How did you find out about your priority code? Have you gotten your stang yet.. We have been led to believe that ours is in route... But it has been for several weeks??? Is there a way to check on our cars without going through the dealer?
