I'm two for two on applications, I received my rejection email yesterday. Pretty much the same feeling I had last time, in retrospect I'm not sure why I thought this go around might be different. I'm original owner of 5 SVT vehicles including 2- GT's, 25+ ford vehicles in collection and fleet, Forum member, etc... However, I'm not into social media, probably considered an old dinosaur in most circles. There's a Ford dealership near San Antonio Texas that has a NFGT on the floor, the sales dept. boast about putting up for auction in a year. Maybe there's more to the story but this is the part of the selection process that's hard to swallow, when investors and celebrities are chosen over the true blue car community. I'm glad a Forum like this exists for all of the enthusiasts out there and best of luck to all the other applicants.

Just received my email stating I've been selected for the opportunity to buy a NFGT. Thats the good news. The bad news is how am i going to convince by wonderful wife Linda that I want to spend a half million $$$ on a NFGT
Err, it’s a lot more than half a mil..........you better make sure she is sitting down when the concierge gives you the final figure!

I am hoping the 2020 LM103 option will retrofit. I heard its track only and prgm is for 103 octane or higher. But the extra 43hp got to be worth it.

Enjoy the process
It’s April 2nd, not April 1st.

Looks warmer than when I visited a month ago, and the snow is almost gone. Every owner should take this incredible opportunity to visit MM and see their car being built.

Payment terms are 50% upon the order, 50% just before delivery. Big numbers.

Has anyone posted a general price guide for those of us who haven't been through the process yet? Something like "Base price =$", carbon wheels = $", custom paint = $", etc. I'm getting the impression that prices have gone up just a little since the first allocation round.
Texas Mongrel posted his order sheet. Base price is now $494,500. Not bad really, given the demand. Lest anyone carp about the price, remember what a difficult, pain-in-the-rear it is for Ford to build a car like this. Also appreciate the miracle of the car and race program getting approved by management. I still can’t believe it, but at noon today in the Multimatic factory my disbelief will be suspended.
I agree. This would be very helpful to have early on. I'm sure I'm not alone in saying that this will be a significant financial investment for my family and it will take exceptional financial planning savvy so knowing earlier what my ballpark cost will be would be very helpful. I also didn't want to either wait for my concierge to reach out to me, nor did I want to bother them well ahead of my turn given the volume of emails/calls that they must be receiving.

I didn't find Texas Mongrel's order sheet on search but any additional info or a link to that order sheet would be great. Thanks all!

EDIT: Looks like I should have read further down. Thank you guys!
