I’m tempted to call the dealer on the phone and say I want to order a GT500, but only if no one is allowed to look at it, and ask if they can accommodate me. Then I can go to the next level and say that even I won’t be able to look at it, so can they deliver it to a storage unit for me when it comes in? I can say that increases the vehicle’s collectibility......

Hat tip to the immortal Nigel Tufnel of Spinal Tap, the man who forbade people from even looking at his collectible guitars.......

when I was shopping for my raptor I called them to ask about pricing and they told me they wouldn’t sell to me at MSRP if I haven’t bought another vehicle there.

When I was shopping for my GT350R asked if they had any allocations and the guy said “I’ll Call you.” I said well do you guys even have an allocation? “I will call” you and hung up on me.

You should have ripped off that ridiculous looking wing from it.

I saw this craigslist ad yesterday.

2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Golden Ticket - $150,000

For sale is an INCOMING 2020 GT500 with the Carbon Fiber Track package. These are few and far between, the markup is strong as is the market on this car. Here are two pictures of how the vehicle is built as well as a window sticker disclosing the equipment on the vehicle.

If you know about the car and are looking for one, jump on this one. They are selling before they hit the lots!

I don't pay retail for cars, never have and never will. That being said, I won't pay Additional Dealer Markup to some car peddler for the privilege of buying a car from him. That might be the rarest car in Jersey, but there are 40 of them on car lots everywhere else. They are selling a car..................................not THE car.

Hmm the cheap version of the CFTP. Anyway, the guy was a dick. It was probably sold and he didn't want anyone near it.

It sucks you were treated like that.

I SUGGEST you not drop by that dealership and look at their COOL CARS.

Seriously. The owner probably had a bug up his ass and didn't want anyone near it. Stop by Daytona Speedway in the first weekend of December. Go to blue garage #9. Pm me your info and you can drive mine. People don't have to be asses.

You literally have a moral obligation to post this picture on every social media venue you can -mocking them with a brief description of your experience. Email it to the sales manager as well.

There’s always a$$$ole dealers out there, especially when they have hot new car.. Back in the day, when I was a young guy looking to buy my terminator, I was treated like with disrespect , The “you or can’t afford this” treatment by several dealers. Best response is to not buy or service a car from them. I drive my fords 20 extra miles to avoid those dealerships for service.

Here's one at an auto show that people can touch and smear fingerprints all over.:crackup:

So ridiculous not even funny, it's a retail car not a secret prototype.

Unlike the typical ricer wing, this one is actually functional. Functional aero tends to look a little over the top on a road car. If they took it off, it would lose some time around a track.

What a grim story! That dealer is destined to failure. That snottiness comes from a corrupt culture within.
