New GT500 owner

Well I did it.
Got myself one hell of a great birthday present Saturday.

I've been on the fence since the fall after test driving a GT500.

After an exhaustive search, and as much negotiation I am trading my 2011 GT/CS vert on a 2012 Shelby GT500 coupe, performance white.
Options include
  • SVT Performance Pack
  • Navigation
  • Borla exhaust - oh & it sounds sexy
  • front hide-a-way tag bracket.
  • Aftermarket single blue stripe (wasn't overly fond of it @ 1st but it grew on me, similar to my Mach 1)
  • 4,569.5 kms

She'll be delivered in a couple weeks and they'll trailer away my GT/CS
Is it SPRING YET??





SOLD - 2006 FX4 s/cab- ; MBRP exhaust, ARE tonneau cover, K&N CAI
2003 Mach 1
2012 Shelby GT500

Sweet looking ride, congrats, nice list of options to complement the package !!

I was thinking January, especially THIS January, wasn't the time I would associate with buying a GT500, but spring will come soon enough.

I hope. lol

Thank you.

Ditto on the time of the year for a GT500 buy but when a great opportunity and deal presents, have to say yes.

Opportunity and deal are two things that work great together, for sure.

4500 km, geesh, I'm willing to bet they were all sunny and warm kilometres, might have a member of the "High & Dry" club. (Never driven in the rain)

Hubba-hubba!

If Princess Auto were a real girl, I'd ask her to marry me.
