Did you check the insurance on it. For me in Michigan with a good driving record and at age 51, it was almost double what the 5.0 is. I really wanted one but couldn't see paying almost $1000 every six months for something that I will only drive about seven months a year. My insurance doesn't offer any storage insurance so that is expensive.
Still a nice purchase and it was hard for me to walk away from it but I also like to mod my cars and couldn't really see modding a GT500 much. I will also be racing my new one and again, didn't really like the idea of racing the Shelby.
Enjoy your ride!!
