THIS is my BIGGEST hang up. If I buy something that is not stone cold reliable that I can drive to Ocean city on a whim and park it for the day - my wife will not enjoy it.

Honestly, I plan on staying NA with this car and just doing LT's and cams eventually. But if the power itch ever comes back, then I will just jump on a VMP TVS and call it a day.

Oh, I'm sorry. Where did he mention he was going to drag or track the car? Oh, he didn't...

Who cares about 600hp when 99% of the people in this world can't push their car to the limit.

Agreed.

My '07 vert was pullied and tuned, but outside of being able to drift around corners on dry pavement with ease (which was a hoot) there was no using all that power. I was always scared of popping mine too. Cornered like a greased pig as well. Total penis car. I liked my '09 Bullitt more, actually.

I like my S550 much better than my GT500, far superior car and fully usable. Near the sweet spot in power. And if I ever blow it up it's cheap to fix.

If you can buy a new GT premium for $7K under MSRP it will not be that bad. People that paid $10K over on the 16 gt350 will take a Hugh it on trade today. Like $ 23K.
But the biggest one was the 09 KR $80K. 4 years later $45K. Some people paid $90K with adm and all.
Try to buy the expensive mustangs used IMO

I didn't get into the GT500 as much as my own car but when I drove a 13 GT500 I was honestly underwhelmed by it. I'd still love to have one but I think it's more of a 1/4 car than a cruiser/curve crusher. The interior is also bland looking (except the seats) after sitting inside of the S550.

It's need vs. want really, isn't it? Nobody really needs more than a '80s Corolla to get around in, but most want more.

For 40k you can get a new GT and put a blower. I was in the same dilemma and ended up with the blown GT.

Mine had to be a Ragtop of course so that adds up. All in I was looking at 47 for the new GT according to KBB....

Cause Voodoo's don't start at $25K, and once you drive a 350, everything else just seems bland.

Back on topic .....Once you drive a 13/14 GT500 with the performance, track pack and 295 MSSP tires everything else is slow This is also the last car Corroll Shelby signed off on and Ford built in his honor. Low miles one owner cars still bring $47K. The 610 torque @ 2000 rpms is just amazing. The car was engineered to go 200 mph. If you are going to buy a GT buy used.
