I am an original owener.
I own a 2016 explorer, 2008 Shelby GT 500, Expedition and a 1994 pace car I worked for Ford in college. My dad was a lifelong industrial engineer at Ford. He was in charge of prepping the NY Auto Show cars at the Mahwah Assembly plant. I have owned over 20 new Ford Cars.
Oh well. At lest I still own a 2006 GT (184)
I want to congratulate all the accepted Forum Members. It has been a crazy ride for the last year speculating, dreaming and guessing what this incredible ride will be.
I have enjoyed being the original owner of my 2006 GT and will continue to be a proud supporter of this community.
However, I have received a rejection letter by Ford, so I will assume that if you are placed on a priority list you will be selected for the next round. I am looking forward to watching you guys build your incredible cars and hopefully I will be able to see you at future events.
Well very disappointed. Received my denied letter. Spent over half my life working for Ford. I am an Original owner of my 2005 and have collected a all race purpose Ford collection . No one in my community bleeds Blue more then me. They say my Application will be saved for next go round so maybe next time. Congrat's to all. See you in Texas. Sad day in deed. What was that Rejected Hotline phone number? I will be just fine. Very Blessed life as it is.
I am proud to be a part of this Forum and also proud to call many of you friends. It has been almost 11 years since we joined the Forum and we have made friends with many that we consider our closest. We have become members of an extended family including Ford GT Forum members, the Ford family and Ford team members. We all have a love for all things Ford and the crown jewel... The Ford GT. As happy as I am that I was lucky enough to be selected, I know there are many deserving GT owners that were not selected. I pray that all of you that were not selected somehow find a way to add the new GT to your stable over the next few years.
I too would hope that if I was not chosen, that I could have been amoung those that have posted comments like the one above like many others have. We are all blessed to own or have owned the 05/06 GT's.
