I'll never buy from a dealer again. Good , they would probably rather not see you either. Someone who is scared, inconsiderate and CHEAP. I bought mine on the INTERNET from an autobroker. It was a smooth and pleasant experience. I ordered exactly what I wanted and waited "impatiently" for delivery to a local dealer. The autobroker's charge was 2% of MSRP, Yea, you could have paid that (or less) to a salesman so he could support his family instead you paid someone who has no continued interest in you and sent your tax dollars to another city or state. so he worked very hard to find me the best price possible....and he did. The price I paid more than covered his fee, compared to what the dealers wanted around here. I'll let the rich guys pay for the fancy showrooms and the 12 moronic sales guys on the floor.
If guy's like you were not such cheap a**holes, you would have more professional salespeople.

I haven't seen any at the Dealers around me. I found on another Mustang site a dealer was asking for a 77K markup, asking 125K even for the car. The dealer was in Canada but the MSRP was 47800, so I don't think it was in Canadian funds

WOW! I guess they think the market will barre (spelling) it. That's pretty strong, but there are a bunch of folks out there with a lot of money and they really don't care as long as they get one.
We have three coming and have yet to see the first. Next year will be my best shot at getting one.

Just curious to see if everyone is selling for that kind of cheese.
Woody Anderson Ford, Huntsvile, AL. #10 went for $69,000 Saturday the 23rd. Sounds like a deal! :eyepoppin

why is ford doing that? 20k mark up? corvettes sell at or below sticker (by me at least) and any vette's a strong matchup for a cobra.

And AMERICAN MUSTANG: there is nothing wrong with being cheap, why spend more when you can spend less for the same product? Don't just buy the first Cobra you see, wait it out a bit, shop around, try to get to know a General Manager of Fleet guy, they can help get you a deal, in fact if you go ask for a fleet guy right away, you dont even need to deal with the jackass salespeople (yes i know it's their job to be jackasses, they're on commision...) so dont diss a guy for being cheap, life is all about value, not frivolous stupid spending.

A local dealer in my area had a GT500 which they put up on auction. Their starting bid was 50,000. Someone drove home with it for 49K.

Ford is not the one setting the price! It's the consumer. This car's starting bid was sticker. Would you say "no" to an extra $20,000?

Speaking of jackasses, You obviously don't have a job that requires you to appreciate the people who pay your freakin paycheck! Somebody is selling something or you would not have a job.

If a dealer told me they were charging a 20k markup, I'd tell him I'm going next door to pickup a Z06 for the same price and I'll be seeing those GT500s in my rear-view mirror, schmuck.

Why is it that I don't feel bad for Ford while it's going down the toilet when dealers treat these customers like this, and Ford Corporate just sits there and does nothing.
