Welcome to the forum hhh.

Unfortunately no, a few folks here have been lucky enough (or early enough) to get one for a nice low price. In my part of the states it's been 10,000 over that dissapear quickly, and most dealers are holding around 18,000 over since no one buys at 25,000.

It's incredibly overpriced, and while they're lovely cars, that I would probably pay close to 5k over for, I don't see it happening in the near future. : \

talked with my dealer today and they sold the last two at 17000 over. From what they tell me they have a list that is quite long for 2007s and 2008s.

I have been trying to buy a new GT500 (white/blue stripes) to go with my '65 Shelby 350GT and '65 GT40 in Europe.
So far only offers of $20k over list or more.

Any dealers (anywhere) that will sell me a new car for a decent amount over list like $5-6K????

I want to use the car for a period in the US and then ship it to Europe.

Anyone can help???????
hhh,

Try this one out: http://www.stangsunleashed.com/forums/index.php?s=&showtopic=8268&view=findpost&p=148573

It's not White/Blue, but sounds like quite a deal.

If I was still looking, This one would probably have been in my garage tonight.

He said they are willing to negotiate from there.

If you are still looking, this is the best deal I've seen.

Well, it doesn't work.
They are asking over $ 59,000 and have refused an offer of $ 55,000

I called a few others but around $ 60,000 is the regular asking price it seems.
With the volume being produced I hoped they would come down.

So the search is still on and I am prepared to pay like $ 52,000 but not much more than that.................(I'll trow in a Champ Car pit pass!)

Did you talk to Chris Pheifer?:confused: If so, he obviously didn't tell me the truth:mad: .

I'm sorry it didn't work out for you. I just may stop in there Sat. to see what happened with the $52,000 he quoted me yesterday.

Yes I did talk to Chris, but he mentioned talking about 2 cars with you.
The white/blue definitely was more expensive.

I would appreciate it if you talk to him, see what you can arrange.
I'll pay the $52K or maybe a bit more....

I stopped in and talked to Chris yesterday and he obviously had his Shelbys mixed up when he talked to me.

The $52,000 is for the Shelby GT and the $60,000 is for the GT500.

On the GT they had $9,995.00 for the Shelby add-on and $10,000 of their own "Shelby Market" add-on.:mad:

Hang in there hhh. I know the GT500 had been sitting there about 3-4 weeks now. You should check back with them close to the end of the month and see if they will take less.

Thanks Harley, that's what I'll do.
I will let you know what the result is!

Hey John. Welcome, and props to you for being helpful. But, that thread died on 5/21/07.

Although, for some of us, that seems like just yesterday (old age, in my case)

John,
I know this is a GT500 site, but you have a nice stable, would you mind putting up some pics of those rides?
