As CS would say "it's like watching a slow-motion train wreck"!

The lawyers will be out in force, as well they should be.

Seriously!  I've seen pictures of other GT interiors, and this one must be the stripped down version.

"...can I get some color?"

The owners are supposed to keep the Car for at least Two Years.  I wonder if that is Two Years after receiving the Car or after placing your Order FOR the Car?

I would clear a bay for it!  Not sure what's going on with the lower dash.  Looks powdery with lots of smudges.

In reality Ford can have the 24 month clause in the contract. But does it also offer to buy the car back if the owner decides to get rid of it? Selling without Ford permission may subject the seller to a lawsuit but will it be for the profit they made? Profit plus penalty? I can't see an award for the total sale price back to Ford. Would a jury be swayed by big bad corporation going after lowley car owner?
Bottom line Ford is getting a lot of free ink suing GT owners.
