CRQuarto Posted May 4, 2008 Report Share Posted May 4, 2008 Well, it is time to say hello to everyone! I have been browsing these forums for a week now, waiting for the opportunity to create my first post. I wanted to wait until I could give the beast its first bath. I purchased it at Galpin Ford in San Fernando Valley at the wonderful price of $44,956, on April 25th, thanks to the generosity of Bert Bockman, and the wheel and dealin skills of my good friend. I would have to say it was one of the absolute best experiences at a dealership I have ever had. Everyone there was extremely helpful and willing to do whatever it took to get me into that car at the price I could afford. They gave me $1,500 over every other dealer for my trade, and knocked the price down of the car many times until everything was good to go. I got to meet the owner of Galpin, Bert Bockman, who essentially told me that because I am law enforcement he wanted to make sure I was taken care of. He also put me on a list of people who he is getting signed visors for the next time Carroll Shelby is down at Galpin (apparently they are friends, from the pictures he showed me!). Man, you guys who swear by ICE, you were right, that stuff is amazing. I was a firm user of specific waxes for a long time (I am an avid detailer), and had not used ICE before until today. Just a single coat made the paint pop something fierce! I claybarred, cleaned, and waxed the paint and striping, and it looks amazing. I thought it looked good coming out of the dealership, but now, wow. I am damn glad to own this car, and to have something like this as your first new vehicle ever is something else.
