Patience. Shipping is not a totally "linear" process. I do not believe Ford is holding back or holding out. Fiesta's will be shipped north by rail. Then, distributed by convoy. So, most everyone will get their cars at about the same time. I would guess that buyers in the Southwestern states will see theirs at the very earliest, and that would be by a few days( less than five) at most. I am looking forward to my cars arrival! The girls in my office are all anxious to drive and sit in it. Even my 70 year old mother is looking forward to it. The style and features draw people to it like a magnet.
