Reserved and ordered a 2 door Outer Banks, AntiMatter Blue, 2.7, Mid, towing as a surprise for my wife. She is a breast cancer survivor and has no idea this is coming, she thinks she is getting a used Honda CRV sometime this summer. Battled a tough fight and never complained. Lets me buy as many fishing rods and guns as I think I need (OK want!), never gives me grief. She has never had a new car, only driven mini vans and sedans to schlep our kids around for the last 24 years. I want her to drive something that makes her feel cool and young again. She said a couple times she wanted something fun to drive but knew the Jeeps and Broncos were too expensive, not practical. Just received our VIN and our build week is 6/7, can't wait to give her the truck. My dealer was kind enough to give her his only priority build slot. Here's the wheels I bought for the rig, they will be wrapped in 33 x 12.5 AT's and a picture of my F150 she stole for the winter. I want it back!

We need more of these threads. Very cool sir. Very cool.
Its interesting and such a relief, the kindness and enthusiasm. Everyone is just aching to get their truck, anything positive is so good to read, part of why I shared. I'm also a member of Bronco Nation and made a similar post over there, similar respnses. One member dissasembled a Matchbox Bronco and hand painted it to match my wife's build, mailed it to me to use in the reveal. People are hurting and need good stories. I love this journey and all the kind, encouraging people. I'm hoping to do the reveal at the top of our ski mountain where she works, after a chairlift ride.

This has to be the most heart warming story I have read!! The way everyone pitched in to help, you truly are very blessed. I can't wait to see the pictures of her when you surprise her.

Wishing you and your family all the best.

Thank you!! I wouldn't wish what she went through on anyone but it made us better people and a better couple.

She's gonna be one happy lady! Hey FORD move this customer to the front of the line. I'll take a step back. My wife didn't go through anything like yours but she has put up with me buying guns and fishing equipment for many years too. She just retired so I got her a new Mustang GT a few weeks ago.

Thanks for the kind words, I believe we have the earliest possible build date of 6/7 and they sent the VIN. I am happy for us but bummed for all the other that have such long waits. Nice on the GT. If I ever buy a road car it will most likely be a used GT, maybe 2006.

You're a good man Michael. I know she will be so surprised. So take some pictures, and post them here. I would love to see the look in her eyes.

Prayers for her continued good health.

Don't worry about us Michael, we'll be fine. You just take care of your lady.

BTW, I bought mine a new 2018 Mustang GT convertible. She hasn't gone through what yours has, but I figured just living with me all these years she deserved a play toy.

Nice...

now as punishment for being a priority build, you have to share the reveal (to include photos) with the community.

Hope you learned your lesson 😝
