No sir you truly did not mean that.

You are the same guy who said that he would be glad if the new Shelby Anerican went out of business.

We replied then and today , why would you or anyone want any company especially an American company to close?

True to form a leopard doesnt change its spots.

You are one weak leopard.

Yes fishing is great in Florida.  You should go fish yourself...

why are you so negative?

who bought it has an expansive collection and the money went to a good cause, charity.

your reply should have been...I DONT HAVE THE MONEY TO PURCHASE OR DONATE TO A CHARITY...

are you even a paying SAAC dues member ?

as we say in the south bless your little heart...

What was that PT Barnum used to say...

tony


The quote I was referring to was “The noblest art is that of making others happy”  - PT Barnum.

Money went to a good cause.

Fishing in Florida is still good. ::)

As usual, the gotta-have -it now and be the first on the block buyers continue to allow the dealers to do this kind of markup.  After production volume increases and cars sit in the showroom for months, prices will stabilize closer to MSRP. 8)

The majority of local Ford dealers in my area with available allocations are at $10K ADM plus sticker. We do have one smaller dealership holding firm at $20K ADM plus sticker for their single 2020 GT500 allocation! At that price they can keep them! I mean I really like the car but I don't need to be the first guy on the block to have one....I'll wait for the inevitable price adjustment to happen.

We have been through this with the Boss 302 Mustangs and the current editions of the GT350/350R when first released as previous examples.  Those ADM values quickly disappeared as production continued.  Ask the early buyers how they feel about the current resale value now.  8)

Earlier in October, the first produced 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 rolled off the assembly line, and the special edition one-off was sold at an auction for charity at Barrett-Jackson for a whopping $1.1 million USD. The winner of the auction is none other than the man, the myth, the legend Mr. Craig Jackson himself, the chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. Inspired by his own 1968 Shelby EXP500 Prototype, also known as the Green Hornet, the GT500 was painted in a unique shade of electric green not currently available on Ford’s catalog. To recreate this color, the automaker combined a Lime Green base coat with a Candy Apple Green outer layer. This will be the one and only GT500 with this color.
