Just for those interested in knowing how difficult it is for Ford dealers to get inventory scheduled for production, my dealership had 19 orders to be scheduled this morning. The "AM Preview Scheduling Report" has changed every day this week and this morning's report now shows that only 1 vehicle will be scheduled today!
