    So what do you think about the odds of Ford revising the production numbers for 07 and 08? Do you think they will really build as many as the people ask for? I personally think for 07 it will be between 7,500 and 8,500. And for 08, I think they will really ramp up production, maybe 10 - 15,000? Your thoughts on the big numbers next year?

    My thoughts on it? I think they should keep production low. I really hope they keep it like the old Cobras. I don't want to see production more than 8k - 9k per year. While I think they dealer mark-ups are rediculous. You have always had to pay to play in SVT. People will buy them like that for the first year. But eventually all the people with too much money. Either bought the car or didn't. And you are left with people only willing to pay MSRP. To all the people who say. "I'm not going to spend that much on a mustang". Please don't. It means maybe MSRP prices will come a little faster. Since 1 more won't be sold.

    I'm sure you have probably stated it many times, but I have been out of the loop lately. Are you planning on getting on 07 or 08? If so, what color combo are you considering?

    I'm not going to buy either one yet. Too many other things going on in my life (Switched job, starting business, moving closer to family, Trying to convert the cobra to V10). I'd like to buy one. And would probably buy a blue with white stripes. But I think my Cobra project will keep me quite happy.
