Ford lightning dead...

I know there have been some reports about the lightning being postponed. Well, I just came upon a couple of articles that were quite disheartning. Seems the bean counters at Ford don't understand the L...It looks like the soonest us power truck junkies can expect a new L is around 2008....Maybe.

And a little info as to how to be a pain in SVT/Fords ***. Just like when they wanted to ditch the mustang, it might take some pressure to get Ford to keep a legend alive. So, if y'all get bored, check out this link and help out a legend.

The lady I work with, her brother is the lead engineer on the ford lightening project, I will ask her tomorrow what the story is or if she can find out. Her brother also was part of the test engineers on the Ford GT, she has photo's with him and her in the GT. I also know it is her brother because I met him at a wedding she invited me to. So hopefully I find something out tomorrow (10/22)

and by the way GO CARDS, WORLD SERIES HERE WE COME!

That would be cool. I have read about 10 articles about the cancelation of the L and it would be great to hear it from an "official" source. Needless to say, the second link about how to bug them is still a good idea just in case it is true, or if it is about to be true.

Someone is falling asleep behind the wheel at Ford. The canceled the new Shelby Cobra Roadster, the SVT Focus, and now the Lightning?

The Lightning inspired all the other super-trucks right now. Just when Ford gets some competition they cut bait and pull out.
