Re: I think i got a wednesday car!!!

Mine is also a Wednesday. 5/2/12...and she drives like one, too. I've not lost a run yet against anything I thought would be a good race, and that includes comparatively modded 5.0s.

Good luck with yours, break it in right!

Mine is a Tuesday car, 4/17/12. Never thought about a build date being on the window sticker.

Actually, I think you may be looking at the wrong date. My guess is that date is when your order was first processed.



vs



I know for sure that my car wasn't built on the 16th. The dealer told me it would be built on the 20th, and the date on the sticker says the 23rd. I believe the 23rd is the scheduled build date at the factory.

=)

You can find out your exact built date by looking at the sticker when you open the car door. Check it out and see if it matches.

Yeah, my door says 4/12, so supports the date. Maybe ford decided to date them all on wednesdays or Thursday's to make us feel better

^ this looks to be correct. The build date is at the top of the sticker in the middle and on the lower right of sticker and corresponds to the number on bottom of car door tag. Mine is 06/05/2012 a Tuesday.

Solid logic, well-supported. I reject this and choose my own reality!

Seriously though, I can't make ***** for sense out of my numbers in the way you did.

......D5216183

Sticker on door shows 4/12, so no 4 in those figures. 21st is a weekend and 16th is a weekend, which I refuse to believe!

Anyway, I would start think May ( when I was going to order try said takes 3 weeks to start from order date) but the door says 4/12.


Hmm. Please f'n don't tell me that 16 is te build date. I created a thread just to find this ****e out. Damn you once more for your insight and well articulated argument

Re: I think i got a wednesday car!!!

If you know your vin, try this website and see if there are any dates that make sense:

services.forddirect.fordvehicles.com/inventory/WindowSticker.pdf?vin=

(Don't forget to add your VIN to the end of the URL.)

You can also try this one:

Re: I think i got a wednesday car!!!

So why is Wednesday such an important day for the car to be built?

It's not working on my iPhone but going to try when I get home. I see what everyone is referring to though. The header at the top, in the white margin. I don't have that on my actual sticker.
