Recommended Posts

I have a 2008 GT 500 and love it. However, the new 2013 is pretty SWEET with 650HP, etc.it is very tempting to get a new one ,but I cant see paying all the money when I can hardly controll my 500 plus H.P. now. Also I get a front grill with mine. SUDDEN.

I would not sell mine to get a new one. Mine is still like new with 8K miles on it. I love not having a car payment better than taking a bath on selling mine and going into debt to finance a new $65,000 car.

 

Besides that....what the heck would I do with my screen name. :hysterical:

You could request one be built in School Bus Yellow and change your screen named to "Yeller" :yahoo:

No matter what you buy for one year, which is the fastest and has the most horsepower, there is always the next gen model which will trump the previous one.

 

I do like the numbers on the 2013 GT500, but I like the body of the S197 Mustangs. The new one doesn't do it for me.

 

Besides for the money of a new GT500, you can buy a more powerful supercharger for a whole lot less and still have a better looking car.

Either way, Ford fans have a TON of options. Gotta love these cars. :worship::worship::worship:

Cars are never an investment, and because I don't have tons of money, I will be investing in more mods for my '08 and if someday I can afford a '13 in addition to my '08, I'll do it. Otherwise the loss would be too big even with what I have in it today. Full Griggs suspension, pulley, CAI, tune, new wheels and tires on order. Good enough for me for a while. I love the style of '07-'09, but the '13 may be the best yet, IMHO. Loving the rear-end.

I'm with you guys. First model year '07 with the original body style..............won't ever part with it. The '13 is impressive for sure, but I just love the 07-09 cars and you can easily get them them to outperform anything Ford decides to build now or in the future.

I certainly won't part with the KR. Will add a TVS blower though, which should make it pretty close to the 2013 from a performance standpoint. As far as the '07 is concerned, there's a part of me that says that I don't really need two Shelbys, or at least not two with the '07-'09 bodystyle. However, there is another part of me that is too emotionally attached to this car. I guess I will eventually have to make up my mind, but this can wait at least until next spring. If I eventually pick up a 2013, it will be a low milage 1-2 year old car that I can get at the right price.

Never part with a car you love. Just add another to the herd.

I agree....love my '08, but I'm sure I could make room for another one...maybe a coupe this time :drool:

 

What I am wondering about...is what will the 2013 SuperSnake have in it... :shift:

Having 2 GT500's that are His and Hers models is the way to go ! :happy feet:

2007 Super Snake $28,000 Are you kidding me!

 

I took the day off today so I could visit a few dealerships and ask them about the 2013 Shelby.

 

The first one I went to was the dealer that wanted $15,000 over sticker in 2007. They did say that they would sell the 2013 at msrp if I wanted it. I then asked what they would give me for my 07 Super Snake $28,000. WOW ask 15,000 over in 07 and then only offer 28,000 for a Super Snake.

 

The next dealer is one that I had my name first on the list for the 07 and they sold it to the person with the highest offer. They will give me $47,000 and sell the 2013 at msrp.

 

The last dealer I went to is the one I bought my 07 from. They will sell at msrp, but would not give me a trade amount because they said by the time the 2013 came in my car would be another year older. The sales manager said he was thinking about my car and $10,000 I told him how about an even trade my $90,000 SS for your $65,000 GT500. He said I would have to take a loss on the $40,000 SS package I added to my car.

 

I cant stop thinking about a 50th anniversary Super Snake, but it looks like I will keep my 07 for a while.
