Hi guys, I read the weekly email every week but its been a while since I have logged on. I wanted to share my story as to how I ended up with what my wife calls "two of the same car". Of course they are very very different animals. Anyway, I have had the GT500 for a couple of years and every time I would take it to the local dealer I would walk into the showroom and ogle the black 2017 GT350R they had in stock. ( $25k market adjustment) I liked it so much I had the red accent stripes added to my gt500. (never thinking I would own both). So, one day I was in the dealership and learned they had taken the market adjustment off. I asked, "so you are going to let it go for sticker?" They said "that's the plan". So, I happened to have a 2013 ZR1 corvette that was giving me a little trouble and decided that I was going to pounce on the R. Don't get me wrong, the ZR1 was a faster car, but the driving experience, the looks, all the glowing reviews, and that exhaust note convinced me that I had to have it. I have no regrets, I love the driving experience of the R and if I want a little straight line action, I get in the GT500.

Great forum!! Keep up the good work!!

Gorgeous pair and the ZR1 comments are good to hear as I had been cross shopping C6 ZR1's before I bought the GT350.

Mavisky, don't get me wrong, the ZR1 was a bad ass. I had just had it a while and the leather where the dash meets the windshield had dried out and pulled. I repaired it but it had a seam where it wasn't supposed to and I had been looking at the R since they put it in the showroom. I got a good overall deal on the trade and the rest is history.

Fantastic pair. I really wish I could have kept my 13 and my new R.
I’m just blessed to be able to have even just one in my garage.

Welcome! I had to use the sale of my beloved 2013 GT500 in order to afford the new GT350. Sure wish I'd been able to keep the GT500.:cry: Those two cars are tributes to the overall performance of Ford's recent iterations of these great cars! Welcome aboard!
