I purchased my 2005 GT new and gladly paid a premium. Made two people happy, me and the dealer who sold it to me. Haven't regretted it for a moment. I'm the guy who was PO'ed at not getting a allocation on the first round. For good reason i might add. That's history. Received a 2nd round allocation. Will get it in 2021 as a 22 model i presume. Over 6 years of waiting. My 05 is not for sale nor will be my NFGT. Just remember when we pontificate about the morals of someone who owns for 2 years and sells two people will be happy then as well. The seller and the buyer.

While filling up the GT yesterday, someone asked me "what's it worth"? My answer was, doesn't make it difference, it's not for sale. Yes, I knew he was asking for the market value, but if it's not for sale, who cares? Then again, if someone offered me stupid money for the car, I'd sell it, and buy one of the many 05-06's that are on the market, and pocket the difference!!!

:rolleyes: I guess we're doing this. You pissed and moaned bitterly, a lot, and in unrelated threads after not getting an allocation in Round 1, as if you'd been grievously wronged despite your unconditional loyalty. Then immediately after getting an allocation you started asking about what it's worth. I'm guessing you didn't put "I would do literally anything to get a Ford GT so long as it's worth more at market value then what you're selling it for." That's my problem here. Casts an unflattering light on all the moaning, which I now can't help but look at incredulously.



This remains a historically bad take. Post a beheading video in this thread, it'll get a lot more views.

I've been Ford guy since before you were born. Every time i see it i'm overwhelmed with how fortunate i am to have such a marvelous automobile, my 2005 GT, I offered $1000 dollars to each of my 250 employees if they bought a new Ford product back when the s--t hit the fan. What have you done that compares, other than collect a paycheck? I might add, I'm under the influence of a stiff Cruzan Rum and Coke.

ma.
We will all know soon enough what these cars are “worth” on the open market. No need to speculate. As for my car, I’m devaluing it every chance I get.
I am with you ! My cars a devaluing every day! My new Carbon Series already has 4,500 miles! my 06 GT just hit 52,000 miles!
No one on there death bed ever wished they worked more ,saved more or enjoyed there hobby less!
I'm not saving my cars for the next guy!

I simply don't get the hostility towards people wanting to disccus the potential value of the NFGT.
I also have contemplated the relative “hostility” when one questions the monetary value. My conclusion is that many feel that the emotional “value” and brand or marque loyalty carry much more worth than monetary value.

I find it strange. Why all the drama about the resale of the NFG (other then Cena's car trading hands a bunch of times). Ford said you can't sell your car for 2 years and now that 2 year period is coming to an end. Owners are selling (and profiting) so what's wrong with that? Just some good ole supply and demand and capitalism at work.

What am I missing?

I met a guy at a show last week that didn't receive an allocation and now is waiting to purchase one after the 2 year waiting period. The only one that I know is out there is the one in Texas that is past the 2 year waiting period, so it is "Legal" to sell according to Ford agreement with the ordinal owner.
