Finally Got The 2007 Mustang GT Vert!

Was quite a pain to get it but it's here. (pics below). Let me tell you the deal I got on this. I was very surprised.

I had just bought my coupe 3 weeks ago tomorrow. I traded in a 96 C4 vette that I really was starting to hate and I really wanted rid of it. Went to look at a GTO they had used but it had been wrecked so he showed me the 2006 Mustang GT coupe. I needed $15k for the vette. They went $12k. The coupe was a 2006 premium GT 5-spd with 15k on the clock. They wanted $26.5 for it plus TTT. Coming from GM land, we are used to paying more for our cars than you guys in Ford land. I believe the 2006 could have been had for that new but didn't figure that out till I had already bought it. New to the Ford world, what can I say. I told them I would give them what they were asking for the 2006 if they gave me the $15k for the vette. They tried to negotiate it but eventually caved in. Considering the vette was really worth about $12k, you could wash the funny money and say I got the 2006 for $23500 and got $12000 for the vette in reality.

So I realize that the one thing the 2006 lacked that I missed from Vette world is a removable roof. With the sweet weather we recently had I found myself really missing. Then I thought how I always wanted a vert and thought I would try to marry the two together.

Finding a blk/blk 5-spd Mustang GT vert wound up being a healthy task that I will spare you the details.

I was a little bummed about the 2006 deal when after I got it I realized that I really didn't get all that good a deal on it considering it was used, 15k miles, 1.5yrs of warranty already used up, and the satellite radio was out in the 2007's which is something I really like.

So with all that, here is the deal I got on this new 2007 vert and why I couldn't pass it up:

Thanks to the $1000 rebate going on right now, they gave me $25k for my 2006 in trade AND gave me the new vert at invoice! Yep, $1500 more for the coupe than what I really paid for it 3 weeks ago before I put over 1000 miles on it!! I about chit my pants when he said he thought he can go $25k on it (and then actually did it)! I took it to CarMax the other day to get a ballpark and they offered $21k for it.

Right off the bat, I notice they are much tighter when they are new. Seats are a little more plush too. A bonus was that this had the interior upgrade package which gives you a metal shift knob and the metal pedals and who knows what else. Can't wait for some more spring weather!

Here's a question for you already-own-a-vert guys. When you put the top down, will there be any audiable lock or anything? What I mean is I took the top down for the first time today and held the button till you could tell it was at it's limits by the sound of the motor. However, I was still able to push it down a little more by hand. Had I not done that I would have felt like it wasn't down enough and it looks like it would make a great air-scoop and just get pulled up or something. When down maybe a couple inches or so when I pushed it down by hand.

I really don't know if this is the way it is and something to worry about or not. So how's it supposed to go?

Thanks!

Nice Ride, enjoy it now that nice weather is coming. I usually tell my top is down all the way because I hear a clunk when the motor bottoms out the top. I asked Web Electric products to develop a one-touch button for both up & down positions, let's wait & see if something comes out within next couple of years.
