Fortunately there is no chance of anyone getting trampled to death when the virtual stampede starts to fill out an application.

Does everyone have their VINs and current mileage, date of purchase, and who knows even VINs of prior Fords owned at hand when this site opens??

Yes, because I've always registered the cars on the Ford website.

They're all coming out of hiding !! ,, :biggrin
Stormy, I agree with your observation. A new, very limited production Ford GT is announced and Forum members who have been on this Forum for YEARS now become interested again. Where have you been? Perhaps some data will help illustrate.

Some randomly selected active Forum members with their metrics,

Posts vs Time1.gif

And other Forum members now showing amazing interest in petitioning Ford through the application process that they are an active GT owner wishing allocation consideration,

Posts vs Time.gif

It has been stated that Ford Program management has been watching this Forum for several years now and certainly before there was any hint of a follow-on new Ford GT design. Thus, it would be reasonable to assume they know the active members on this website. They also know the naysayers who believed a new GT design would never be offered again or weren't enthusiastic until a favorable allocation process was detailed.

As DBK has stated in another thread,

I am confident that Ford will do their best to get the cars into the hands of loyal enthusiasts that want the car because they love the car, the heritage, the performance, etc and those that will use it as intended.
Seems reasonable that is Ford’s goal and they will do their best to accomplish that task. Good luck to all.:thumbsup

I certainly hope the silver bullet of allocation isn't driven by a post count :screwy:.

This list seems very cynical... and would immediately exclude Jay Leno from getting one, :rofl

Yep, I am posting more since the announcement. I am also forcing myself to finally spend more time on my hobbies and to finally enjoy the fruits of my 12 hour day, 7 day a week labors (plus I want one as much as everyone else here). :thumbsup

How many guys have made changes to their daily routine waiting for this GT application??

Maybe you're spending more time online here or on the Ford GT site waiting for the Application status to change from " Coming Soon " to " Apply Now " and hopefully you not so late and it says "Sorry Sold Out " .

Maybe you're checking your phone constantly ..,,, expecting a text from your GT buddy that the application is up and you better get on it !!

Maybe your postponing that trip so you not off somewhere where you can't be reached !! :lol ..

Or Maybe that's just me,,, the suspense is killing me !!.. :biggrin

I'm waiting patiently. Certainly not changing my life for it. I don't think Ford is going to announce a web site at noon on Tuesday with application cutoff date of noon Wednesday. Probably at least a month if not more so everyone who wants one gets a chance to find out about it. It doesn't look like they are going to preannounce in the press for a future date, so when it opens the press will have to catch up. Then the ranking and rating (ranting and raving) to see who gets one goes on.

I have been checking more often but not because I have any chance of being selected but rather for the entertainment of watching forum members turn into cannibals. Haha.

I'm taking bids now on a kidney and/or lung if I was one of the lucky few!!

I wonder IF our current cars had remained under the radar and depreciated, if this car would be wanted by so many. I have to believe our cars are driving up the craziness of wanting the NFGT. CRAP!!
