    I thought the bolt pattern would have been the same, they are using the Bullit rim.....why redesign the offset for the rim they probably have thousands of lying around?

    I have a few Ford dealers in town, one of them being an SVT dealer....so its quite large. I'm in pretty good with the sales manager and he mentioned to me that he has already sold 5 '05's, and he will be gettin 9 or 10 GT's in the first shipment. Not sure how he swung that.

    Maybe he has two dealerships, technically, and that allows him the alotment of 5 per dealer. Hence, the 10. He may have two corporate names, one for the regular division and one for the SVT division. McCarville Ford in NY has the same thing, they will get 10 also.

    I talked to the sales manager of a Ford dealership in New Orleans yesterday and he was told they were only getting 1 GT.

    I'm not sure if they are a very small dealership or what. Every dealer I have talked to is getting 2. Unless you are talking about the Ford GT.

    From what I understand, dealerships will be getting plenty of V6's, just a few GT's to start.

    I'm pretty sure I read somewhere that the Bolt Pattern of the wheels will also be different. Since they started with a clean-slate, it will probably be metric too !!

    Anyone have a new T-Bird or Lincoln with the chassis the '05 is based on ... what's the bolt pattern on these cars ??

    Those #s are for the 05 Stang.

    T-Bird & Lincoln LS are different 5 x 108mm x 60mm offset.

    So the bolt pattern is the same on the 05 Stang as the 99 - 04, but the 05 has a larger offset.

    Deeper on the back side (ie. larger offset) I believe. But I don't have any actualy stats, just what I've read on here and on Brad's forum.

    I was hoping that Ford was going to make the mustang 5x108 (5x4.25) b/c we all know that the mustang gets the most aftermarket attention and I would've loved to have that sort of selection for my lincoln Ls.
