My Mustang

When I was in my early 20’s, I got my first real job after college and bought a brand new Ford Mustang.  Black on Black.  I fell in love with the instrument panel — the way it looked at night.  Totally cool.  I loved that car and drove it less than a year –until one night I was broadsided and the car was totaled….but I was OK.  It was kind of a miracle. 

Then, you know how it goes –got older, married, kids, carpools, vans, etc — and I never owned another Mustang again. 

But someday, I’m going back to my first true love….only next time it’s going to be a convertible!

I am a member of mustang 6g, where we are anxiously waiting for our retail ordered Mustangs.  Some enthusiasts are starting to lose faith as new orders are being scheduled and they have been waiting since May.  Another member posted a great idea to introduce a little more fairness into the system.  I added to it with my own idea.  It goes like this: Background:  the Mustang faithful are becoming very upset that their orders are being processed randomly and according to dealer allocations out of our control - not in the order in which they were received.  Some people have been waiting since the open of order bank in May, and don't even have a vin number and are still in Order Processing.  There are a few thousand of us Mustang enthusiasts on this forum and there has to be a better way.   Solution:  Allow bumping up priority on earlier orders for those who have waited much longer for their new Mustang.  We could contact Ford Customer Service on the board and give our order and dealer number.  Based on when we ordered, we would have our order priority changed by subtracting the number of months from 10.  For example, someone who placed an order in May when the banks opened would have their priority changed to 6.  Because 10 - 4 months wait = 6.  This would introduce some more fairness into the system and allow the devoted Mustang fans to get their car sooner.  It just isn't fair that people have been waiting >4 months, and any average Joe will be able to go to the dealer and pick up one from the lot in a few weeks, well before the people who custom ordered get theirs.  Who's with me?
