Lowly car owner?  Considering the price of the GT and the status one has to have to be one of the chosen few to get it would kind of bury that idea!

... Bottom line Ford is getting a lot of free ink suing GT owners.

Well, here's more of the story, regarding the 2017 Ford GT that was auctioned at Mecum Indy:

The dealership that was the 2nd owner SURE took a BIG risk in buying the car for $1.1M just to flip it!  :o
Nothing beats a classic!

Unbelievable.  What a mess!  With all the lawsuit news circulating, I wonder if anyone would even buy it at this point.

It's all publicity.....

Its one thing to put it in an auction so MECUM can draw more attention and people to the show.  Its another to actually sell it.  The car will never hit the reserve and the owner will take it home.  Watch and see........
