    I read somewhere the Mustangs and the Corvettes have the same offset. I am not sure which Mustangs and Corvettes they were comparing, but if this is true I am in for a set of 18x11ish wheels.

    The S550 EcoBoost and GT share a very similar fitment to the C5 and C6, yes.

    Top two HDR pics with Aerowerkz logos make it look darker (and prettier) than it actually is. My two smartphone pics at the bottom are a better representation, perhaps not as sexy though.

    Still looks killer to me! So who is going to buy the Camaro ZL1 1LE and give Emilio a run for his money?

    GT350 - msrp everywhere except california ($5k)
    GT350R - $20k

    Price actually have gone up after Ford say it is making only 1/2 of the cars in 2018. And discontinues after that.
    Rumor is 2019 on, it is GT500. With regular Coyote engine but supercharged. Back to its muscle car root.

    Depends on where in the model year, how many are left, what state and in California, which part of the state. Right time of the year in the right part of the country, $1k below MSRP for GT350. Wrong time of the year, wrong state and it's $40k over MSRP for a GT350R.
    So yeah, somewhere between those two extremes.

    Start shopping. You have to call the dealers for actual price as most will publish a much higher price than they are willing to take. Get the sales persons name if you get a quote you like. Don't expect to be able to test drive it.

    A few suggestions:

    - Make sure it's true zero mile. Otherwise know it's been hooned, likely on regular gas and cold engine. Get a discount if it's got miles on it. If the ties looked chewed up, either take that off the purchase price or ask for new ones.. or just find another one that hasn't been hooned.
    - Buy the Ford factory ESP warranty. Do not buy a 3rd party warranty. Don't tell the salesman you want the warranty until it's time to haggle. Keep that card hidden. They make a commission on those things too.
    - If you need to finance it, come in pre-qualifed and know what your rate is. Again, don't tell them. When it's time to haggle, offer them the loan in exchange for price. They make commission on that too
    - Ford ships a hokey but still cool Shelby Owners Kit which has some memorabilia, certificate of pedestrian crushing, etc. Make sure you get that within a few weeks.

    Thanks for the info guys. I can stomach a 5k mark up on a GT350 but nothing more than that. I've noticed that a lot of dealerships have been listing at MSRP, but one dealer showed a picture of the sticker and I could barely see a $25k mark up off to the far right. No thanks.

    I'll have to check one out in person at a local dealership. Kinda digging the Avalanche Gray but I wish the gauges looked a little more modern.

    There is a dealer in Texas (north) that has an avalanche gray. I saw a price of $1,500 under 2 weeks ago. But that was before Ford announced production halved. Shipping is about $1,500 in an enclosed. Or do what I did: fly over and drive back. Makes a cool trip. I am a breaking bad fan. Visiting all the spots at Alberquerque on the way home.

    Might have to do that. I'd prefer trading in the GT3 rather than selling privately, but I might have to do that to buy out of state. I hate dealing with all the tire kickers, low ballers and hagglers.

    First, I gotta check out the car in person or find someone locally that wouldn't mind trading test drives.

    Sell your Porsche to Car Max. You don't have to buy a car there to sell them yours.

    Wow, did I miss a joke? It was very hot here today but now that I've had a glass of wine or 3 it totally makes sense.
