Congratulations...A new member here but long time Ford guy. Just recently took delivery of my new 2022 FORD GT "HERITAGE" CAR on Jan 6th 2023.. WHAT A JOURNEY IT'S BEEN FOR ME. Was at the factory on Dec 6th 2022 to see my car being built.. what a thrill for my wife and I..
go the impression then (Dec 6) that there were not many cars let to finish...
What a wonderful chapter for us all. Thanks DBKThe home stretch on the GT program is here. I was up at MNV in December with a friend to see his car and things have definitely changed a whole lot from the early days. The volume of people and the number of stations and the layout of the facility all ended up a whole lot different in December 2022 than they were in January of 2017. But it will always be a really special place that did something utterly insane. So many cool people up there. Everyone always calls it a "plant" but MNV always felt more like a giant race shop. Can't believe it's almost over!
I was up again last week and things had already quieted down a bunch. Got to see Pearce and Pardeep and Angus King and Alan Eggly and Tony Benincasa and annoy them for a few more hours. And OF COURSE Terry came with! In general you could just feel that things were different. Seemed like it was down to about 20ish cars to go. Some parts of the build for the final units are already complete and will never be repeated. I saw the final unit and it was well on its way. Over the next ~6 weeks, 7 new GTs will be delivered at Icon, so I'll have a decent amount to post.
One more time!

Maybe I should already know, but what facility is this?I'm a day late here, but 6 years ago yesterday the first GT delivery took place. There are a handful of deliveries remaining, but I expect the last car to be out by probably 3/15.
The Day Before. A bit different back then.
