Can you imagine the sticker price on what you just described!? Holy *****!

Not sure I believe some people on here with the deal they say they got. I got the Boss at sticker but there was also loaded GT there for 37.5, I had some buying power also as I told them I was going to put 14k down.....didn't matter. This was at more than one dealership, it was actually three different dealers and all of them had about the same price range on the GT's and they weren't moving from them either.

I have to agree with this..some of the "deals" I have seen are just to good to be true.
I'm 32 and bought a couple of cars new and I get more crafty each time...hell some of these people must be using the Jedi Mind Trick to get the deals they claim.

The real problem here is they know how much you want it and they got you by the *****..some yuppy out there will pay what they want especially when the car is just released.

Unfortunately it's NOT only Ford. My 1990 was 12 & change (I have the window sticker). My 08 was 26 & change with the X-Plan. That's more than DOUBLE in 18 years.

My fear is as inflation continues to take its course, that pony cars like the mustang & the camaro will one day be off limits to the everyday person......

I know and its sad because that is what makes america great is the fact that the common man could live atleast some of the good life, but it just seems to be slowly slipping away. BESIDES being a pessamist, I really cant believe the prices either.

I got family in the used car bis, but I definitly going to be looking into a used 5.0 in the next year. Proably a base so i can build it the way I want to.

My base 05 was around 25k... They are being priced out of reach of the regular folk, and we're forced to buy a 25k econobox.

Sorry. Not going to happen. I'll just get my 05 redone when it needs it a decade or so from now. No reason to buy new if prices are astronomical like that. And the wife will get the new cars as she doesn't care about power as much anymore.

I just can't see myself in an econobox, I just can't. And since that will be the only thing I will be able to afford unless I get a promotion I'll stay with my 05. Besides, it has been in many pictures, and the first set of wheels I owned stateside (dutch guy here). Nope, not going anywhere.

Someone with common sense. I love the people who spend beyond their means, or gotta have the newest and greatest... but then can't pay their bills. That has been an increasing trend in today's world, which of course they decide to blame others for their own problems. Anywho... I love the engine, but that's about all.

Todayís economy is tough, thereís no doubt about that. Iím not sure what the new Mustang GT demographic is but for myself, very close to 40, I was in high school when the 93 5.0 GT came out and I would have just about given anything for one. Except money that is I was broke. Now at almost 40 Iím doing okay and although costly I couldnít resist. I donít think itís any coincidence that Ford released the new 5.0. It coincides with my age bracket and Ford hopes nostalgia will get us in the showroom.

In my area I donít see a lot of new 5.0ís and I live in a major metropolitan area. I think it comes down to selling just enough of these cars at ridiculous prices and then showing prospective buys itís the going rate. If you want a new Mustang youíre probably already sold, the trending just makes you feel better about your purchase.

That's my 2cents
