Good luck Dave/Doc. You'll love it... I really do.
Pay what you need to pay now.. they aren't getting any cheaper (save another economic 'bump') and it's one of the few exotics that won't cost you an arm and a leg in either depreciation or operating costs.
Remember - buy the buyer first.. you guys are wise enough to already know that.
I bought mine from Shelby.
ps.. drive it, don't stare at it. I've put 2K miles on mine in 4 months of driving.
Just want thank all that replied, we appreciate the words-of-wisdom, everything you guys say is true. That's why our quest has turned from putting feelers out, and hoping one drops in our lap. To let's get one NOW! Spoke with Dave a couple of times since he posted. We are comparing notes, and trying to help each other find us a GT. With Dave in Calif., and me in Michigan, there should be a few GT to check out. So if you guys hear of any GT owner's that may want to sell, PLEASE let us know. Our contact info is in this thread. Thank you, in advance, Doc.
Hello, I'm a little north of Detroit. Also have a place in F. Lauderdale. Where are in sunny Fla.?
Hey docshelby -
I'm in White Lake (Waterford) area, and in-process of moving to the Daytona area. I have info on a lot of GTs in my GT Registry database - if you send me VINs of the cars you're looking at, I can let you know if I have any extra info on them. I also keep records of crashed cars - you don't want to buy one that's been wrecked and repaired, yet still shows a clean CarFax (and there are a few of those out there).
