Dealer order receipt acknowledgement?

Its a sheet that says ford agrees to build your car and lists the options.

What MGBox said below ... My dealer said they expected a VIN in a couple of weeks but instead I insisted on the DORA and lo and behold when he went to pull it, the VIN had already been assigned that same week!

Personally, I think the paint delays because of the earthquake in Japan had a big part in some of these orders getting delayed/rescheduled but that's just a theory (the other part that might explain why my order is getting filled quicker is that I purchased through a 'volume' dealer so perhaps they get higher priority as a 'reward'?). All just suppositions on my part ...

What's the latest on your location justy? Mine was scanned in transit last night, hope it was hiding on the same train with yours. That would make the sept 18 ETA. Or if its just beginning its own journey it will be here late next week or the monday after

no update yet :(
still showed the same as my last update earlier today.

i'm slightly hoping for tomorrow...my dealer said they do PDI's on saturdays too so that can happen if it got delivered late today or early tomorrow.

Well mine was suppose to here today according to Natasha. My Dealer informed me it was still sitting in NY so who knows when it will get to me. Only 6 hours away and it takes 3 weeks or longer to get here. Sad just Sad... I think they are holding them so they don't give away the $500 anymore....

Still sooner than mine, and remember, you ordered 2.5 weeks after me.

Focus_Freek is gonna beat me too. Looks like my car was moved to the shipping yard in MI sometime late Thursday. I'll have another updated ETA on monday.
