Pretty simple from my standpoint as all I am trying to suggest is that us automotive enthusiasts might want to try to maximize our bang for the buck as much possible when it comes to purchasing a Shelby Mustang model whether it be directly from Ford or from SA.I simply meant that compared to doing that work to the car yourself in the aftermarket and getting 0 return on your aftermarket investment, with the Shelby modifications you will typically hold onto something of your investment. If maximum return is your goal then put that money into the markets, but if you're the kind of person who finds value in the name, there seems to be a number of people down the line who also seem to find some value in the CSM number.
If you think that paying $80,000 for a 2008/2009 Shelby GT500 KR was a terrific deal based on a whopping 40 HP increase along with a new hood, hood pins, different gears and a few other goodies was a great deal or paying a ~$50,000 to ~$75,000 markup over and above the Base MSRP of $42,000 for a 2007 GT500 then go ahead and fill your boots.
If you are also suggesting that a modified 2020 CSM HEP R is worth more than a bone stock 2020 HEP R then we are definitely on a totally different page.
This has nothing to do with the money markets and all to do with watching our hard earned dollars when it comes to purchasing a new HP Mustang model.
As far as you previously mentioning that you are a one of the bigger nay-sayers of the SA operation and then your subsequent posts I guess that I am left a little confused.
