Orange looks nice from the thumbnail but you'd have to pay me to watch that kid's videos.
I thought i was the only that felt that way. Just say NO to clicks!
I'm not going to bother giving him the click. He just spews things that aren't remotely factual and makes things up about how he can afford the cars.
Yea, i cant get past his voice, spoiled rich kid. Wont get a click from me.
i open the page and just click the thums down. has more effect than not watching. kidis annoying, unoriginal and already show to be clickbaiting

That location is one of our coveted canyon carving locations in Arizona on the Jerome to Prescott section of 89A.

Thats very easy to answer. People pay for it. simple.

thats how business works and there's nothing wrong about that.

At the very end of the video he talks about the dealer asking $75 and $100,000 over MSRP. Iam an old fart at age 68 and I just want to say I find it disgraceful what they Ford dealers are doing and also the fact that Ford doesn't put a stop to this insanity. To anyone that still believes in business ethics its ridiculous. It begs the question of "why do they do it"???? Because Ford lets them and because they can. Shameful.

I finally just watched the video. I dont know if Ive said it here, but ive said it in CF and the SVT site...

It will be funny AF if the GT500 is quicker than a ZR1.

I dont think Ford has any legal recourse. The Dealer buys the car from Ford for invoice , but Ford cannot dictate what the dealers sell it for. Ford can try to withhold future allocations , but there are always ways around that.

Im not defending Ford, but they arent the only brand to do this. This happens because stealerships are in the business to make money and someone is willing to give them that money. This is still happening with cars like the Civic Type R.

I remember someone posted a piece of paper with sales managers signature that the buyer was buying for MSRP. When the Dodge Demon arrived, the dealership did not sell it to that person, they sold it to someone willing to pay 20k in ADM.

For those of you that don’t want to watch that (kid’s) video, here is a short clip on Instagram of just the cars pulling out and getting on it.

Just making sure, is this that Speed Phenom kid who brags about being self made all the time but got his GT350R bought by mommy and daddy for prom or whatever the story is?
The very same. I don't have a problem with someone accepting a car from their parents because I know damn well nobody would turn that down, but he just needs to own up to it instead of looking like an idiot.

He’s also the guy that claimed the base model to be something like 60k because some girl at a Ford event claimed it to be so.

Actually people don't pay for it, they finance it and have it for a while and then trade it off on something else. A never ending cycle and never actually owning anything.

Speak for yourself. I am not financing and won’t finance a car again.
