'07 GT/CS "May Not Happen" after all

I was told by a reliable source at Ford today, that the '07 GT/CS "may" or "probably" won't happen. This is not confirmed, but the people in the ordering and distribution pipeline are saying this (today).

I don't know why, or what will happen in the coming weeks, but this is what I was told today. I don't like spreading rumors, but this is a reliable source, and it makes all our speculation a "moot point" at the moment.

If this changes, I'll post it here.

Thanks for your input on this Mustang variant, anyway.

Even if it doesn't make it to market, it sure made for some good threads.
I think I have my wife sold on one too.

You may make it without friends; but with them, you can do anything.

Hey Paul;
I'll start one then for us. How about they'll bring it out in 08 as a 40th anniversary edition for the GT/CS...........

Hi Paul , I got my wife to agree to buy an 07-08 GT/CS to be imported to New Zealand, I have even started e-mailing with the dealer who sold my original CS as i would like to buy the new one from them. But........ if this does not happen for some reason by 08, what about this for a wild thought, the PN limited edition of 68 only factory custom ordered mustangs each fitted with a personally signed badge, and signed glove box along side Carrol Shelby.
There will only be 68 all will be manual fully loaded with a V8 tweeked by someone in the US that is well known for race motors and fitted with limited after market suspension modifications. They will only be order as orders a confirmed. Not sure what you would be able to call it GT/ California Sport.
An idea like this would make Ford think again about the car if they where going to not produce it.
But again I do not know the practicality of all this but it could be possable.

Hahahaaaa CJ 56...right on!

I am for an anniversary 08 as well. I can't imagine why it should be an 07.

And by the way...does anyone want to buy me one? I'm not a wife so I guess I need to find a sugar daddy but they aren't in the yellow pages.

I don't know. I'd be a little afraid of a woman who drives around in an ambulance.....but then I guess it's not as scary as a hearse!

Be afraid.........be veeeeerrrrrry afraid!

The only difference between a hearse and an ambulance is slow driving and a black paint job.

As long as you have the better halves convinced to buy an 07. If they don't make them you'll have to convince them you need another 68 since by default that's what they agreed to. Did you actually mention the year in the agreement?

Or ... buy a 68 and tell them it really is an 07 and that Ford really went overboard on the retro thing.

Personally ... I'm not pushing my luck right now.

(in a "Dr. Evil" voice: Yeeahh...Riiiooyyghht....)

As for DonnaSmarty, what scale would you like your GT/SD car? (GT/Sugar Daddy)

As for Hearses....whatever you do with Fords, your last ride will probably be in a Cadillac! AAHHH!!

Shelby Cars in Las Vegas does have a V-6, and something else for the "less than GT-500 market". We'll keep on this. Interesting side note: The Mustang "CE" (Calif Edition) of 400 cars is now sold out. I just sent pics to the May issue of Modified Mustangs. Expect these to be very collectible!

Well, not to be argumentative, but I'm pretty sure that most new hearses (coaches) are Lincolns. Fewer parts fall off and they look better. Some of you traditionalists might be saddened to learn that most are now white or silver too. Black is considered a little too morbid, and hot.

Here's a link to a site that explains how and where to buy a used coach for anyone that might, for some reason, be interested.

Hmmmm, I thought they were still mostly Cadillacs. And uh Arlie,....."Black is considered a little too morbid, and hot"? Hot for who???

If anyone is interested in any kind of Professional Car. (hearse, ambulance, limo,flower cars, cop cars,taxi's)...check out the Professional Car Society website. I can't remember the name of the site right now... Grim Rides is pretty cool. I can't help it of I have a warped sense of humor. I yam what I yam!

Let me just say that being hot is not good in our business and leave it at that.
