O.K., help me out here somebody... I've had a GT500 on-order for.... well, FOREVER. My initial order confirmation with my dealer was 4/27/2006. That's what you get by being offered an MSRP deal I suppose, you wait 'till your turn on the totem pole.. Anyhow, no worries about that, I could care less when the car comes (never did understand the folks who had to have the car "yesterday", and were willing to fork over gee-gobs of money to realize it..). Here's the kicker though... Today, my salesman emails me that the car has finally had a VIN# assigned, and is scheduled for build. O.K., so I email him back to see if he has any dates, and he replies with this: "The ETA to Shelby is 05/03 then another 8-10 weeks for him to do the Shelby upgrade. Hopefully they will expedite the delivery. Shelby is also producing the Shelby GT in 300 HP also." Huh?? Shelby doesn't do ANYTHING to the GT500, the GT500 is a factory car... So I call up my guy to discuss what the f*** is going on, and he confirms that the car is slated for delivery to Shelby American in 'Vegas. So now I'm rubbing my chin, and wondering aloud, "after having my order pending for so damn long... has my order been tossed in and included in the 1,000-unit GT500KR build, which IS INDEED being accomplished by shipping finished cars to Shelby for completion??" So I bounced that off my salesman, and he's going to try to find out what the full-skinny is on this. Also, if my suspicion is correct, what the heck am I in for regarding price? I know that they'll honor our MSRP agreement, I'm not worried about that, but I have no idea what premium these KR's will have above the standard 500. Not that I won't pay, I'm just totally in the dark. My only down-side would be that I think the wheels on the concept photos I've seen are gawdawful silly looking. Anyhow, any thoughts? I'm right in that the regular GT500 production DOES NOT go to Shelby for anything, right? This forum is so damn dead, I hope somebody is still paying attention..
