They’re probably debating whether the escrow tied to the application for weeding out the looky-loo’s ought to be $50k or $100k. Looks like the stock market lately may change some wannabe's into looky-loo’s.
Not just the today, but the past week for sure and last year was no winner either.

5%? That the going rate for good credit?
I don't have any idea what the going rate is for good credit. I just arbitrarily picked 5%, as everyone would qualify for different rates unless subsidized by Ford finance. The bad news is I didn't allow for sales tax in the $400K price. Figure with sales tax we round it up to $425K. We put down $50K and borrow $375K @ 5% for 5 years it will be $7,076 per month.

Even at 2% to borrow $375K for 5 years will result in a $6,572 payment per month. I'm sure a good number of people here will be paying cash.

Sales tax in the places I've lived in the past 20 years have been in excess of 8% (state + local) so that number hovers between 430-440K.

Suppose they'll be taking a Forum roll call at the Rolex to see who the hard core fans are? I may have to reconsider my priorities.

Just a hunch, but is the bitter guy referring to us as "blowhards" our own/former Luke Warmwater, aka Mikey?

Yes.

And the site is a joke. You have to use your "Real Name" but that just means a screen name like most of use here won't work. I was tempted to sign up as Fred Ziffel to see if they cared.

Another hunch: Luke or Mike or whatever his name is won't survive the application process for a NGT.

I know you're kidding, but it's worth saying because some people believe this kind of thing: no. At this point, everyone knows what the allocation process is (roughly). Trying to gain advantage by trying to appear like a die hard is silly.

I can't even wrap my head around some of the insane things people have already said/done thinking it will get them a car. :facepalm:

If one had to get a loan to buy one, don't forget the insurance, as the insurance company will likely want monthly or quarterly payments from the loan company.

Then, there's also registration, which, of course, will include your yearly personalized license plate fee.

All of which says, if you cant pay cash for it, forget it!

That video and article was spectacular. The more you learn about the new GT the more desirable it becomes. It will be a class unto itself! Ford you have done it AGAIN!

Well, not really. There's an application process. Some unknown weight is given to prior Ford owners, perhaps some heavier weight if one of those vehicles happens to be a 05-06 FGT. Aside from that, at least speaking for myself, I have no idea what else the process involves or considers.

And yes, many pesos have been spent in the hope of jumping that line.

You (roughly) know that priority will be given to existing Ford GT owners and loyal Ford enthusiasts. Knowing that Ford is looking for loyalty to the brand and nameplate, trying to score points after that is public knowledge isn't worth much because everyone has the same information.

:agree: More allocation for those that can pay cash. :biggrin
