I messed up.......

Two years ago I put a deposit down on a 22 Lightening Pro. My idea was to pair it with a industrial saw mill, and make a killing----and have a lot of fun----- in the forest. The 36 inch Norwood sawmill is together, on a trailer with a 10 hp motor.
Everyone on this site, and the dealer, say that a reservation, is kinda a wishy washy thing that they may do. Right now, they don't want to do it, but maybe later. Such crap! If someone on this site can help me force Ford to honor their written promise, I will be a lumberman. If not, make me an offer on a fantastic new sawmill.

I'm really surprised, and disappointed, that the Lightening will not supply the power for my sawmill. Actually I am more disappointed that my $100 and a two year wait was to get on a list......I assumed that my reservation number was a reservation in the ordinary sense of the word. Has anyone tested this in courrt? Are there any lawyers on our forum? If not, has anyone taken this to Small Claims Court?
I understood the chip shortage and such, but what exactely is the problem now?
The correspondence I received in Dec said: "Due to high demand , the current model year is no longer available..." It still has the $39,974 price on it. I assumed I was still on the list for a 23.
It sounds like this work truck is great for warming up a cup of coffee, and I expected more from Ford.
For the forum record, I bet I was the first to have a 23 Ford. That would have been my first car as a teenager. A well used 1923 Model T. The man, Marvin Sweeter, gave it to me if I could get it started.....had to drive it away. Towing not allowed!
My $100 was very promptly refunded when requested, followed by a nice satisfaction survey.
