I was watching The Weather Channel this morning, and I’m afraid I came across some potential bad news for trucks sitting in the notorious Ramp 6P and other overflow lots in Claycomo waiting on parts, or waiting to be shipped.

The weatherman is calling for severe weather to rock the Kansas City/Claycomo area during the overnight hours tonight. There is also a high potential for hail when this storm system moves through.

Let’s hope those military grade aluminum bodies live up to their Built Ford Tough reputation tonight!

Had some thunderstorms and pea-sized hail here at my house here in Michigan yesterday. I’m about 30-40 minutes away from where Ramp 59 is. Not sure how widespread the storm was, but
I’m sure all is well with the parked trucks.

I'm glad I didn't join this forum last November when I 1st tried to buy my new truck.

I most certainly would have ran back to the dealer, placed my order (just in case) and kept looking.

Right about now I would be fighting over the rusted POS I paid $XX,000.00 for.

At least now the only thing I have to fear about the delivery of my new truck is that it might sit out in the blazing KC summer sun for a few weeks before it's shipped.

(Scheduled build June 7th)

I would be just as worried about the sun too. It literally BAKES everything from the plastics to the dash to the paint! Especially with wax or tint!

Yeah but I was thinking about that today. New cars & trucks sit all summer long on dealership lots in Phoenix every year so it can't be that bad.

Looks like the first squall line of this system is currently pushing over Claycomo.

Massive severe storm cell right over Claycomo at this moment. Appears to be the worst of it so far.

0500 update. Looks like the worst of it has passed through the Kansas City and Claycomo area. Should just be light rain showers from here on out.

Ford could easily get month to month leases on Covid inflicted vacant warehouse space.

I didn’t realize this was an option until you pointed it out. Now I’m a little offended Ford hasn’t done this yet!

The only reasons I'm putting up with this shit are I hate RAMs, I'm not impressed with GM although I might end up buying one anyway and the dealership I'm dealing with along with their entire sales staff are awesome people.

But if there's a spec of rust on my new truck...
