ok. according to that document:

Quote:
Local 900 Michigan Assembly Plant Ford Focus; Production - 50 hour weekly work schedule with 2 Shifts (5 day traditional schedule)
Plant is scheduled to work two Saturdays in June 2011
Reported that overloaded job operations are creating serious morale concerns
Explained that the majority of the Final Area has job standard concerns that are being addresses through the Kansas City
Procedure in the UAW-Ford National Agreement
Vacation Shutdown is scheduled for the weeks beginning on 7/4 and 7/11/2011
Overall Plant Population - 2360
looks like they're closed for 4 days after the holiday on the 4th of july. so could delay manufacturing a week. oh well. could be worse, if you ordered at christmas you'd have well more than week holiday delay.

So if your car is scheduled to be built this week (supposedly today based on vin, but before the break), would it delay shipment? Even though it's built, I'm guessing Ford employees still load them onto the trains.

Of course, getting back to your question, that isn't true when it comes to some of the colors that have been discontinued.

I had a deposit down on a Kona Blue SE Hatch that was coming in from Long Island to Pittsburgh on a dealer trade. I wasn't sure about the Kona, as it seemed to work well on some cars (Mustang) and not as well on others (sorry to those who own a Kona Blue Edge). But I could always decline and it would have sold in minutes. Turns out the dealer in LI ended up selling the Kona Hatch, so I decided to order.

I was bouncing between Ingot Silver Metallic and Sterling Gray Metallic. There were two such examples on the lot that I kept walking back-and-forth to after the rest of the build was written. Then an Oxford White sedan came up and parked. Went in and told the salesman to make it Oxford White.

Looks like I'll be one of the few and the proud...the members of the Oxford White 2012 Se Hatch group.
I'm with ya on the white SE hatch!

I ordered 6/6. Received an email with the VIN on 6/25. Scheduled build week of 7/18.

5-speed
Sport
Painted 17's
203A
Moonroof

I have yet to see a photo of an Oxford White hatch with the painted wheels. Do they exist?!?

Hmm...I put my deposit down on a Blue Candy Titanium hatch on 5/21, still haven't received a VIN. My dealer seems to be getting annoyed by my weekly calls. Starting to get a little worried.
