Glad I am not alone. Yeah I never really understand why people buy cars just to look at, but then again if you have the money collecting cars is like collecting anything else I supposed so it makes sense when thought about that way. With that said I don't care what amount of money I have I will always drive and enjoy what I buy.

I think it will hold decent value like the rest of the Shelbys seem to do if it gets the same type following. This is what I am not sure on since they went auto only it might be a different buyer. Also with the price nearly double or more of the previous model GT500 I am wondering if that will cause them to be catering to new clients vs the old GT500 buyers were back on 2014 and prior. 50K for a supped up sports car is one thing that enthusiasts might be willing to stretch for, but 75-100K+ is something that might be out of reach for majority of the Mustang following I wonder. I mean at 100K it comes down to do I buy a house that provides me with a place to live or even rental income or a car? haha I also think this price range puts them in the comparison with brands that have long been in this range like Porsche and the like. I think if I had 100K to drop it would be hard to choose a Mustang over a nice Porsche, right?
