Lightbulb Trading a 2013 GT for a 2010 Shelby

This is what happens when you are on vacation. An idle mind is the devils workshop my mom use to say. I have a 2013 GT Premium with Nav and all the bells and whistles that I bought last summer. My car currently has a little over 4000 miles on her. I found this 2010 Shelby and I am tempted to trade my car in for it. I have about $10,000 set aside for a supercharger or a down payment on a 2015. Would any of you guys pull the trigger on this 2010?

GT500 all day, every day.
No chance you will regret it.
If you get a chance to own one and DONT do it?
You WILL regret it.

These cars are in a whole different level.
In every aspect of how they are built.

Does that price seem about right?

I saw this car in person when I was looking for my '11 and I got to say it is BEAUTIFUL! If its not going to be your DD I would go for it. The only thing it is missing is Nav but I am sure you can install that yourself or go aftermarket.

I would not but that's only because I have an 07 GT500. I havent looked back since I traded my roushcharged '10 in for it.

However if I were still in my '10 I would totally get it. Once you get a 500, you'll never look back.

That's one reason I haven't gone to look at it yet. It would be hard to walk away from it. I only drive at most, 5000 miles a year. I've had my 2013 for 13 months and it only has 4067 miles on it.

Well I just logged in to my USAA account and see that my auto loan application was approved for up to $46000. I have 45 days to use the loan. I am off all of this week, so I now have a dilemma to sort out. I told my wife last year that the 2013 would be my last car for a while. I told her this morning that if I got the Shelby, it would be my last car until I retire. ;-)

That's a tough decision. What are they giving you on trade?

IMO, its not worth it. With the power available in your current '13 5.0, I think you are much better off going with some mods to hold you over until the '15's come out. Obviously, styling is the big question, but they will be ~400 lbs lighter and have more power in the 5.0 than '13's. Basically, a '15 5.0 should be able to beat a '10 shelby straight from the factory. Keep saving and make your decision once the new Mustangs are revealed.

Haha. You're keeping the first promise you're keeping because time is relative. After all, imagine if you had to wait a whole year to pee. That's a LONG time. The second statement might be true too. If you haven't test driven that car, you should if you're serious.

I would love to have a shelby BUT SINCE you have $10,000 set aside I would rather put that into that 5.0 since it has such great potential. If you found a way to swing a 2013 gt500... that's a different story

Thanks for the responses guys. Dealer is offering $29000, I owe $22000 and some change. That was a blind estimate over the phone based on options and mileage by the appraiser.

I wish. My wife has a paid off 2011 Beetle just sitting in the drive way. I asked her for it last year when I wanted it to put towards a 2013 Shelby. She wants to save it for our daughter who will start driving next year. :-(

If I don't buy this GT500, I will not throw money at my 2013 until we get some specs on the 2015. I'd hate to put even $1000 into this car just to trade it in 6 months.

For you car experts, can you guys tell me if the $40,000 price tag a fair deal for a 2010 Shelby? Do you think asking $38000 is low balling these guys?

Well guys, I guess it wasn't meant to be. Got a phone call and the car was sold. :-( I guess that's a sign! What a way to start the week. I didn't have possession, yet I felt like it was mine :'(

Darn. That stinks my man. I was just going to say that no offer is low balling them and they should have some wiggle room regardless. Better to insist that they give you more on your trade then knock off on the asking price though for tax purposes (at least in CO where you get tax credit for the trade in amount)

I wouldn't do it. I would see the 2015 first. And or get a 2013 gt500! Then there is no argument. But if your really only driving 4-5 thousand a year. I'd rather be in the Shelby...

That's not a 'sign', you just missed it.
