67shlby2916 Posted May 29, 2007 Report Share Posted May 29, 2007 Hi, Everyone, I see a lot has happened since I first joined this forum. I've been deployed to Afghanistan, came down with kidney cancer (am now in remission), re-retired from the military (on a bright note). I had had an '07 GT500 on order when all this stuff went down. Went through all the hassles, heartbreak and happiness of being #1 on a dealer's list at MSRP only to be told, as many of you were, that the "owner decided not to sell at MSRP." I finally worked out a deal where I would pay + $7K, keep my place in line and be able to order my car when the boards opened. My '67 GT500 is red/white, I ordered mine (by proxy)....red minus stripes as I planned to have the stripes painted on. My "deal" went south and I was told that the owner now wanted + $10K because most people were "flipping" the cars. I told these weasels that I owned an original Shelby GT500 and I had no intention of "flipping." A month or so later, I had gotten sick and I decided that I didn't want or need this car, or the aggravation, at + $10k. Well. long story short, I'm feeling great now. I'm back in the market to find my '67 a stable mate. Now of course, the '08's are on the horizon, but I think I'll still try for an '07. I'm going back and reading all the topics. I hope to see some of you SAAC in Salt Lake City in July and some other functions soon. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
