    I swore I'd wait until no ADM, but I broke down and paid 10K over MSRP which seems the average in relation to all the dealers I've contacted. I started making these contacts four months ago and it paid off as I got an AZ dealer's first and maybe only allocation. Due to ADM I didn't go for track or tech package (another 6-7K), but I can live with "base" model. Ordered impact blue with no stripes; I'm having tungsten silver stripes painted on (not an option). I have an 07 GT500 Vista Blue with Tungsten stripes (one of only 132 in that combo) and love the way it looks, so I'm going that route again. I live in CO so it's going to be a great road trip driving it home unless of course it shows up in January and Colorado is shocked by a blizzard! Based on GT500 experience, I'm thinking 4-8 months.
    Sadly, I will have to sell the 500 which I swore I would never do (it was the 5.2 that got me- I've been VooDooed). I'm not selling the Raptor though! Sorry if this was much more info than you wanted.

    Congrats on the GT350. I'm kind of on the fence about it. It's either 2016 GT350 or 2017 Raptor for me. But to get the GT350 I'd have to get rid of the current GT500, which I said I'd never do.

    Very cool!:smileup:I just had mine ordered last week. When did you order yours? What did you get? I assumed it would take a while (4 to 8 months) but I've heard they will start showing up soon! I can't remember how long it took to get my 500, after I got the vin? Likewise, I can't even remember how I got the vin (feeble-minded I guess). Did your dealer send it? Is there a Ford site?

    My 07 is my absolute dream car, and I too said I would never sell it. It literally makes me sick to my stomach to think of someone driving it away. If I could I'd keep it. Having only a two car garage doesn't help. I've tried to condition the wife to the idea of her Edge being parked outside, but in truth I probably can't afford both Mustangs on a professor's salary.

    One site said they build 60 Mustangs an hour. I don't know if that is correct and I don't know how many GT350s are designated to be built each day, but I imagine they have turned out some 2016s by now. I have heard (again could be wrong info) that they will build about 7500 much like the GT500.

    I haven't heard of a production limit on them, just like the Raptor. Ford will build as many as needed to satisfy the orders.

    You could be right, and if I was waiting for a 2017 I would hope you are right so the ADM would drop, but I keep reading it will be limited in production? We shall see?

    Why is the GT-350R more money when they eliminate A/C , Back Seat and other stuff ?
