    Well ladies & gents, time to say good-bye :(

    Got tired of the chase & dealer nonsense (the whole Travis/Classic CJD fiasco was the final straw) and switched to my back-up plan.

    I ordered a Mustang GT 10 days ago. Have a Ford/Roush authorized performance shop ready to build it to Roush Stage 3 (without the hideous Roush front clip, interior & useless stickers) specs. Roush Phase I supercharger & exhaust, Steeda suspension/frame bracing, Ford racing 1/2 shafts, 3.55 rear, performance pack wheels (already sitting in my garage), custom graphics, black accent pkg emblems & more. Should be a fun ride !

    I've enjoyed my time here and this is a great group of ppl, will miss this forum greatly. Most here are truly helpful and supportive, and there are so many really knowledgeable members willing to share their skills & experience. I can only hope I find a similar forum in the 'stang community that's as much fun and is as helpful.

    I know some here will flame my choice, but so be it. For me this was all about having a fun, go fast "toy" with the options and colors I wanted.

    Lastly, I'd like to thank all of you who shared dealer info on the few stand-up FL dealers & those who assisted in my search & PM'd etc. when a Sublime A8 popped up. I hope all of you waiting in line for '16's (especially you voucher guys) get a car - you certainly deserve it for persevering thru all the FCA & dealer nonsense.

    For those who already have their's - enjoy your rides & I'll see ya on the road !!

    MikeD

    I agree Mike. I love mustangs don't get me wrong and a stage 3 rous h is kick a $$ just make sure you get what you want. It's not easy dealing with this dealer BS I agree I'm in the mix of it myself right now.

    at this point if you couldnt find the car you wanted somewhere in the USA you werent trying very hard....i dont own a 15 mustang, but know its a much smaller car.......you missed out on the HC.....your mod'd 5.0 wont be the same.........StellaHC found a couple of A8's for MSRP when he was just looking and said he spent a few hours(i think).....so the cars are out there depending on what color you need.......

    im not a quitter, so its hard for me to say good luck with your 5.0............i think more effort would have gotten you your HC and in the end you would have been much happier....

    Good call. Most of them he dealers with 15 allocation left have them for a reason. You'll be very happy with a Roush Supercharged GT and pulling stock Hellcats all day.

    will a roush 5.0 hold resale? or will people just consider it a drag car and assume its a beat down 5.0?

    the Challenger 392's held value very well.......wonder what % you'd lose in a couple of years since its not a factory car anymore.....my guess is the % would be much higher than a factory HC

    im trying to wreck the love fest going on here
