I edited out some administrative b.s, but take a look at the remark concerning the Shelby GT. Otherwise nothing Earth shattering but you may want to make note of some cool marketing materials that maybe you can get from your local dealers - enjoy...



Subject: Shelby GT500 Mustang Update


The purpose of this communication is to provide a Shelby GT500 Mustang update for certified dealers.


Certification Payments

Please note that additional fees will not be required to participate in the Shelby GT program. This program, announced at the Dealer Intro Show earlier this year, will begin production in Jan-2007. Stay tuned for allocation information regarding Shelby GT coming soon.

Rat: That is good news. I wonder if there will be a ADM on the poster? Since I could'nt get a car, I will try for a poster. The news on the Shelby GT is consistant with what the Regonal Rep told my fleet contact, which was "The order bank will accept a order in Jan for the Shelby GT". How many GT Shelbys do you think each dealer will get ? Which car do you think will be better, the 07 Shelby or the 08 Bullitt ? I know it is a guessing game on the Bullitt!
