Good news to all who are anxiously awaiting shipments and delivery of the new 2002 T-Bird!!! I am from the metro Detroit area and drove out to the Wixom assembly plant yesterday afternoon to see if I could spot any of the new T-Birds in a lot. Lo and behold, I found an area that had 15 of them parked outside and inside what looked to be a holding area. All colors seen except the blue/turquoise. One of the workers came up to the fence when 4 were parked with a caulking gun and I talked with him. He said that they have made about 800 of them. Also said that Ford engineers have crashed about 12 of them in driving around the city....they are so powerful and fun to drive!! There were 3 Neiman Marcus editions...look nice, but I personally think the all black top and bottom looks better. I told him that I heard that Ford was going to hold all shipments for up to 90 days and he said he didn't know that to be a fact.
