Just a note to say that I heard the man, the myth, the legend Steve Coates did his 500th GT delivery recently. That’s an absolutely bonkers number of car deliveries for one man to make, especially given that Steve has to drag himself relentlessly across the country to do it.

That’s almost 50% of all the car ever built! Couldn’t be done by a better guy!

Steve is something special. So many things; consistently away from family, groundhog day when it comes to delivering the same make/model over and over..., helping coordinate truck/delivery,... I have been around a lot of people/employees over the years that present/sell cars to people and he is at the top. Haven't seen anything like it before. He makes my trips even more enjoyable. Great person and happy to call him a friend.

I don't have a NGT but have seen Steve in delivery videos and at Rally XIII, and he seems like a super nice dude. Maybe I need to order a Mustang and request a special Steve Coates delivery :cool:

I was Steve’s last delivery of 2019. Since he didn’t have anymore deliveries until January 2020 he took extra time with my delivery. We talked cars and hung out. Then my brother came over and we hung out. We ended going to dinner later that night. I think I had one of the longest deliveries of roughly 10ish hours. He is one super cool dude.
