Geesh...does anyone post on this board anymore?
I probably won't start buying specialty parts until I'm sure of my car purchase. I have the DORA, but no build date or vin # yet. When I get back from vacation in early August, I will probably get a little more aggressive with my dealer.
Happy 4th of July!

Shelbydude et al: Does anyone happen to know if there will be anything that visually distinguishes a 2008 GT500 from a 2007 model year?
If you were a gambling man, what is your bet on a 2009 model year being produced?

Only difference would be 08 has a couple new options. Ambiet lighting and HID headlamps. One new color which is Vapor and replaces tungsten. A few different color stripe options, such as silver on black instead of tungsten and black available on grabber orange.
No for 2009! At least according to Ford and SVT. They keep saying NO for a 2009 GT500. So 2008 is suppose to be it! 2008 production has also been decreased to only 8,000 units which is a few thousand less than what was built in 2007.

Thank you for your reply shelbydude. It sure would be nice if FoMoCo would do something ever so slightly to distinguish model years, such as displaying the rear "Shelby" logo across the rear for 2008. But beggars can't be choosy.
I have a DORA in hand, but no build date or vin # yet. I still have my fingers crossed, because of the decrease in production numbers for '08. I am #1 on the list for the 2008 model year, so I have been told.

Randy any word yet on a vin#? I will be leaving in two weeks for the Dearborn plant tours. It would be great for me to see yours being built. Let me know if you have any word yet and I will talk to the assembly line workers and make sure they do a good job for you. HA! HA!
4,400 miles now on mine and loving every minute of it.

Well, Brian and shelbydude...I met with my sales manager for the second time today, and he basically said they have no idea yet with regard to build date or vin #. However, he was kind enough to provide me with the 5 digit dealer code. How does one use this to "call up the order number" into "CONCEPTS" within the Ford's dealer system for a status update?

I got my GT500 in Feb, too, after five month wait. I want to send in a 'body part' to CS for an autograph, any suggestions as to which part I should pull and send? I love the car, although I did have to have some warranty work done a couple of weeks ago. Have yet to see another one on the road.
