I spoke with a John from LoneStarFord about this car, nothing much just a few simple questions.

 

 

So yall think this is a good buy? Pricey, to low, etc...?

 

Pretty nice but pricey. Would be a better deal if they added the tvs system instead of a pulley

I would sell you my 07 with 1kmiles on it with way more add ons then that car for about 15-20k less(lol)

To me that seems like a very high price for what you are getting. I wouldn't touch it.

 

I like the way they subtly refer to "Snake package" - or try to imply Shelby Super Snake through the advertising.

 

My perspective anyway.

I havent talked about prices yet, just wanted to know what some of the GT500 experts on this forum thought :happy feet:

 

I thought it was kind pricey maybe if it was but thanks for the help so far.

 

I like the look, I would want to put black stripes on instead of white, but i could live with white for awhile until if i wanted to put the stripes on

I know these guys. Autograf is the company that did my Roush TVS supercharger on my 2006 Mustang GT. That video is old, it's not the one on the auction. Lone Star Ford has many GT500's on their lot. When I was last there, there were 5 of them on the floor. The reason many of their cars have miles on them is that they "buy" them from other dealers and they are usually miles put on during transport.

 

Personally, I'd get a base GT500 and get all the aftermarket work done locally. The reason I chose Autograf is that they are located 10 miles from my house, so if something goes wrong with the blower or body parts (for example, one of my Silver Racing louvers is leaking) I can take it to them in person. I suppose it would be hard to warranty their work if you are not local.

I think this is a crappy deal. Lack of FRPP parts ruins your warranty as well. If you had to resell it you would lose a ton of cash because of all the mods.

 

Look into a real KR or get a real Super Snake upgrade package that way you keep the resale value up.

 

I do not care for the way they beat on the cars either on the video. It looks like a headache waiting to happen unless you live close by.

 

Stay Away.

Just an opinion, but you can get a 2009 for list now at most dealers. Add the Shelby SS package for $24,000-$32,000 (depending on the power you want) and have a better car for close to this price. I prefer to have Shelby do all modifications.
