well, i sold my speedy and getting ready for the Tbird. I've been debating the pre=order idea, but theres one problem....i asked my dealer about it and he said they can't give me a price ! Said they won't know what they need to charge till they get them. So i asked him what if i pre-order and the price is higher than i thought. he told me the deposit is non refundable. So if i plunk down the cash and it's more than i wanted to spend i forfeit my $500 ! So i'm curious....did you preorder with or without a quote of any kind, written or oral?
