A lot of folks missed the fine print, or got confused.

We don't need all of your money now. We don't WANT all of your money now.
We only request a $500 "good faith" deposit, for up to six wheels. That way, folks can buy (for example) 2 fronts, 2 rears, and a spare for each.
Lots of people gave us WAY too much money (this happened a lot with customers who ordered online, and was much more prevalent in our Canadian brothers and sisters, for some reason).

You MAY get an email that your dollar amount has changed, it'll be less money than you remember committing to. YOUR ORDER HAS NOT. I just don't want to take $3000 from anyone who thinks they NEED to do that to secure 6 wheels. You don't.

Any questions, please call us. 702-405-3500.

Thanks, and congratulations to the lucky new owners for their astounding support of an iconic product celebrating FIFTY YEARS of Shelby American.

They will be shipped in the order they were purchased, so there will be many ship dates.
I would recommend anyone who ordered early be ready soon. Our ETA to the last customers will be complete before the end of December...

I believe in "underpromising and overdelivering".

:salute:


We're calling customers in a "first come, first served" order - anyone who is not ready to make final payment due to our early delivery is simply moved further back toward December to accomodate. No pressure, we just wanted to exceed expectations.

First person to post pictures of them mounted on their car gets a free T-shirt of their choice from the SPP online store.

So i finally have $2,500 in Benjamins saved and hidden in my gun safe at work.

Let's hope the wheels show up before I head to Vegas in January, cause the crap table might just win out over the wheels.

:rockon:

My whole team are really having fun with this project. We have an entire additional warehouse dedicated to the program, and we've got 6 people going through the process:

1. Open every box.
2. Inspect every wheel.
3. Re-pack every wheel with bubble wrap, in the original box, then pack into an ADDITIONAL outer box for shipping protection.
4. Add center caps to orders that chose them.
5. Ship!

My newly-promoted Shipping Manager Bill Cherwin is overseeing the team effort, and they have been processing HUNDREDS of wheels each day. It's impressive to see the operation. Bill worked with Alcoa to streamline their packaging process, adding a layer of cling wrap, then a protective plastic ring around each wheel's rim.
