How to find a GT500

Anyone know how to find a dealer with a GT 500? I tried fords site but you can only search regular mustangs and close dealers inventory. Also is X-plan available for this car if you can find one? or not chance

All you have to do is walk in waiving the extra 30 grand over MSRP and you'll have one real quick.

$70k

No problem so long as you have upwards of $70k (Kenzo is right, that's the price the dealers are looking for - then you add taxes, tag, documentation fees, etc...)

I don't believe any employee discounts apply.

My sincere suggestion would be to either wait a year or so (its possible the hooplah will die down - it did for the Ford GT supercars, with their prices now close to list price).

Or prepare to be gouged big time by the smiliing dealer.

Or, buy a Saleen. They look better and you can get almost the same HP, or more.

Almost every N. Cali dealer has at least one right now. However, the lowest I have seen one is $20K over MSRP. The Ford guys were telling me they can not even get their emplyee discount for the car. Now you may want to try something like Edmunds.com, you might (a long shot) find a dealer somewhere willing to sell it to you for $5k over MSRP or maybe even MSRP (although I would not hold my breath, but stranger things in life have happened).

Even worse...here in San Diego I found a "GT500" at a dealership yesterday, so I just had to get a lookie in. :eyepoppin

Very sweet looking, inside and out, when I notice something amise: The rocker panels are the same color (Red) as the car!!!

"What's this?" I silently wonder to myself.

Well, I take a look at the sticker and it is "Merely" a GT with a FULL GT500 body kit...steering wheel and ALL!!! They missed the rocker though...

Sad thing is...it added 12K to the 30K sticker!!

NOT WORTH IT!!!! The whole darn kit can be bought and painted for around 3k!!!

I was sad...

Price wise a Saleen won't help much. I was looking at one at Ken Grody Ford the other day.....beautiful 550hp car for about 75K.

Just about every dealer is experimenting with kit cars. Look in the Mustang magazines - they are even running ads for their fiberglass kits.

What's new is that they are finding morons out there willing to shell out the extra money for the frauds.

Interesting shell game:

1. Ford announces a new line of Mustangs with big, powerful motors and the input of an automotive legend. Nice looking show car makes the rounds. Everyone wants one, and the trade magazines predict the list price at about $35,000, or 10% over the last 04 SVT Cobra.

2. Ford pulls a PR stunt at a car auction that sees the "#1" GT500 go for hundreds of thousands of dollars more than such a car could possibly be worth - all to a good cause of course.

3. Ford dealers start accepting "pre-orders" for GT500's that they cannot yet order, and for which they are not guaranteeing ANY set price.

4. Actual GT500's start coming off the lines, and the "winners" of silent (emphasis on the "silent") auctions at the dealers start taking delivery. Prices north of $75-100,000 are discussed at the car shows, with confidant sales managers stating that they are able to sell every GT500 they expect to get at about twice the MSRP.

5. Looking at the pent up demand for the GT500 makes some cagey old Ford execs think: Why not create a new Hertz Rent-A-Shelby? No sooner said than done, and the new car creates a new blitz of media ecstacy. Surprising no one, the car is soon followed into the market place by a "GT500" light warmed-over Mustang GT with some graphics and holy Shelby water sprinkled on it, to the tune of about $50,000 each. Adding to the mix, a "California" GT sporting vestigial scoops is soon foisted on the naive public.

6. Having overshot the mark to address the pent up demand with the Shelby GT, enterprising dealers soon start concocting their own solutions, pulling aftermarket fiberglass bits and some trips to their paint booths to create faux-500's and tarted-up V6's with "Boss 302" graphics a foot high down their sides.

Be afraid.

Be very afraid.

Good afternoon 2Horse! That would be Mossy Ford in PB. You can't miss it, it sits out front with the Saleens.

You can see the Red Rocker (Not the Sammy Hagar kind) from the street...that's what piqued me once I got up close.

Peace out!

If I would have made a guess it would have been Mossy. I think they'd do anything to make an extra buck.
