How can people resist not driving these cars?



From the article:
Not one single scratch on this car period. Not even under the bumper. How rare is that. That new car smell. Yep, smells brand new because it basically is.

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.

I thought the price was a bit high, actually. The mileage may be super low, but the parts are still ~9 years old and its performance is outdated compared to todays vehicles.

I think its dumb not to drive them. Its not like they are gonna hold their value. People are weird when it comes to this. What is the point to own this and not drive it.

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
