I have to say the rejection hurts more on day two than day one
So true. I thought it might get better. But not so.

No video here....same logic that you had.
OK, thanks- good to know. Others messaged me to tell me the same. At least I don't have to kick myself for foolishly omitting something. Congratulations, Sanjay. It will be fun to see how you guys configure your new GTs!

Sadly, same here... Thanks Ford, DBK and Chip. I know you must have worked hard to get allocations for Forum friends. Just not enough to go around...

Is there a Wait-list group like last time around?

Congrats to all notified of new GT selection. Twenty-five (25) and counting. Really happy to see some local Arizona GT forum members are getting new GT's.

Feelings of excitement, joy, thankfulness, humility, honor, and many other emotions running through my brain.
Been thinking about this news for hours now; and just don’t know what to say or how to say it.
Words will not come to me to express how I feel; guess I’m still trying to process the information.
What a memorable day, it will be added to the many others experienced over the years.

Congratulations to all who received a positive letter and for others, do keep a positive attitude, it’s not over tell it’s over. All who have participated in this process have experienced something that is very special and of historical significance.

Thank You to Ford; and Thank You to ALL involved in the selection process for allowing Sherry and I the opportunity to become custodians of one of these spectacular new Ford GT’s.
Another chapter begins in this mysterious adventure called life.

“What a long, strange trip it’s been.”

Fred,

You have most eloquently expressed my exact feelings.

I came home late from work yesterday and didn't check my phone or emails till after 9 pm. My phone had a few texts from FGT buddies (you know who you are!) and then I checked in on the forum and saw the start of this thread. I subsequently checked my email and saw that I had been offered an allocation. I was quite shocked at first...sitting there staring at my iPad. Once it registered with me and I convinced Mary that it was for real, I definitely felt thankful, lucky, blessed, and mostly humbled. I wanted to celebrate somehow but being a work night, I had a small shot of tequila, and just sat there watching the posts roll in on this thread. It was certainly much more fun than watching results coming in on election night. The rest of the night was tossing and turning...the worst case of "configurator insomnia" ever seen. Definitely a first world problem, worrying about what cars to sell, in order to create garage and "salary cap" space.

Today was a full day of surgery and it has been a blur walking around on cloud 9. I'm exhausted but can now finally sit down and think about all this.

I refrained from posting initially as I was concerned that some of my friends, wonderful people I have come to know through this Forum, might not get the call. As DBK has explained, and Spirit has echoed, "keep throwing your hat in the ring". The selection process was unique for sure. Ford wanted to put these cars in the hands of enthusiasts.

I have enjoyed almost 11 years of ownership of my '05. The greatest pleasure has been sharing my joy of ownership with others. I plan to drive the heck out of the new FGT like I've done with my '05. The offer is open for any friend on the Forum to come drive it once it arrives in Fort Worth.

Thank you DBK for running a class act (our Forum) and for arranging top notch gatherings (Le Mans was off the hook!). Ownership has led to many lifelong friendships.
Raj, Thanks for gracing us with your well wishes in this thread. Thank you Ford for letting me be a caretaker of a magnificent machine!

Now its off to dinner with the Mrs. to celebrate....do I go Liquid Blue with orange stripes....or the Black #2?
