You’re very welcome, RonJrSVCMGR!

Did you get that thing I sent you? :D

Cory

Explorers, this idea came from Cory and I added to it...

I was thinking about your awesome stormtrooper idea and figured the other paints could correspond to something else Star Wars related:

Kodiak Brown Metallic – Chewbacca
Deep Impact Blue Metallic - Blue Milk
Ginger Ale Metallic - Tan Yucker/Tan Divo
Ruby Red Metallic Tinted Clearcoat – Emperor's Royal Guard
White Platinum Metallic Tricoat/ Oxford White – Stormtrooper
Tuxedo Black Metallic – Darth Vader
Sterling Gray Metallic/ Ingot Silver Metallic – Death Star/ Millenium Falcon
Green Gem Metallic – Yoda/ Boba Fett

I definitely don’t mind if you want to contribute to the list. I’m sure the rest of the board would get a real kick out of it!

Cory

I like 'Yoda' and 'Death Star' best, too funny! :D

Then again, maybe a family car shouldn't have 'Death' in the name! hehe

Thank you. I am ok with the delay, whereas I do not want to take delivery until July 3rd to see if there are incentive changes. I probably won't be able to wait, though...

Congrats!! You should be able to see that window sticker I would think. I'm hoping I have the same type of response this next week.

From what I have seen on here, the Ultrasound of the head in the right position (window sticker) will arrive tomorrow morning.....

This is what I get this afternoon



The VIN entered was not found in our system. VIN requested is *********DGA69728.

From Ford's Glossary in Vehicle Visibility:

In Production: Primary Status: The vehicle is in production.

Sent to Plant: The order has been submitted to an assembly plant.

You’re in the 4-6 day window, RonJrSVCMGR. Don’t wear out that F5 key! ;)

Sioux Falls,

You’re only one day away from being in the window. :D

In case you don’t have the window sticker URL memorized, here it is:

**Note: Vin still does not show up in Sync My Ride website. Site needs to verify vehicle has Sync in it. I will update the day it actually shows up in Sync My Ride.***
