The Mustang That Could!

First off, I’m a girl. And I’m a car FANATIC. I am the proud owner of a Screaming Yellow Mustang that I have named Comett. My fiance drives a 2006 Dodge Ram Hemi. Several times in our relationship, he has bragged about the speed of his truck. Confident in my ride, and fueled by a fierce competitive spirit, I challenged him to a race. Both are stock, minus dual flowmaster systems on both vehicles.
We stopped at a red light in my home town, noses lined up. My left foot was on the break, and my right on the gas. Three, two, one…GO!
I have never been so proud of my car. His truck, with the 390 rwhp, was left in the dust from my quick V6. Not only did I destroy him off the line, he could not catch up to me before we reached our destination. Of course, he didn’t want to talk about his embarrassing defeat. But Comett and I, we know the truth. ;)

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?
