10K Over. I have heard stories of them selling both ways. Some less than list price, and some over list price. Did you hear Jay claiming he paid way under list price? A guy up our way, (Syracuse, NY) told me he paid 75K over at 250K?? I am not sure I believe that. Who knows....

Anyway, I was not able to buy one when they were new, but its just great again that I was able to buy one and get my dream car in 2019!IMG_2209.jpg

I have the original sales documents for my blue car the guy who bought it paid well over 250K for it. it was one of the very early cars.

they did drop down to msrp towards the end of production and a year or two after production they started going back up I paid 20k over for my black car at the end of 08 the car was still under MSO sitting around at a dealership for over three years.

I have heard of a few people being able to buy car for less the MSRP but those must have been red cars :)

I'm not the original owner, but I did buy, arguably, one of the nicest GT's out there. Almost been one year of ownership and it's been nothing but awesome :) Thanks Ed!
The car is in good hands. It couldn't have found a better home. Thanks for all the updates Torqjnky!

Me and my brother at Serramonte Ford just south of San Francisco on D Day October 24, 2005. He was the one who stumbled upon the dealership's newspaper ad advertising they had a GT sitting on the lot...I had been searching for one for the previous 9 months lol

I’ve been a continuous owner since Fall of 2005, but alas, no photos. I’ve said, since there are no photos of me, I must not really exist.

I'm Baack! The original joke was my daughter was eating pancakes in my new car and I think she was. She is now almost 16 years old.

Gentlemen,

All of our GT's are 11 to 12 years old now and we are 11+ years older too. I thought it would be interesting to see what we looked like on the day we bought our cars over a decade ago. Here I am in early 2006 on the back lot of West Oaks Ford in Houston, Texas standing next to #34 for the first time. I was so happy and I still am every time I look at my GT. My hair was still brown, I was fatter, and Charley was still a little boy. Fine memory's.

So don't be shy, post a photo of yourself with your GT the day (or close to) you bought it. All the best.

Chip

Fresh off the delivery truck. Apart from our kids, Susan and I could not be happier at that moment. Just like all of you we continue to be today. Blessed. (Livestrong wrist band and all!)
