Wow...that's nuts. I know some people did similar with their Ford GTs. They never drove them. Twice a year the car would be towed via special hauler to Ford for an oil change. An oil change, with less than a mile of driving between intervals. Nuts.
I totally understand someone wanting to limit the mileage on a GT500 / Roush / etc etc, but this is madness.
cheap price too. if i made more money, itd be very tempting to swap.
According to Kelly Blue Book it is about $3k overpriced. Not to mention, rubber doesn’t last forever. Depending on how/where it was stored, the rubber components (like hoses, seals, o-rings & tires) could get brittle or dry rot. I definitely wouldn’t buy this car without giving it a good once over in person first.

I'm not sure why anyone would buy it at that price unless they planned to save it another 20-40 years until its worth more.
If you drive it, its just another used Mustang with 30,000 miles and will be worth half that in 3 years.
If you plan to really drive it, a brand new GT will have a warranty, cost less, be faster, corner better, have more creature comfort......
I just don't get the logic of the original owner buying a fairly ordinary production vehicle and storing it instead of driving it, and I really don't get why anyone would want to take it off his hands for any more than $30k
