In fact when I tried to tell the agent about the difference, it confused them (they're NOT car people), I realized what was happening and shut my mouth quickly!

Believe it or not, but the insurance is less on my GT500 than the 2008 Bullitt

Just a comment on the cost of these cars...$22k is not unbelievable or not legit. It's a screaming deal for sure but it's not unrealistic. Paying $30K+ is nuts and frankly anything over $27K is nuts for a used one no matter the miles. A GT premuim can be bought for $19-23K.

In my part of the world Shelby GT's can be had for less than $27K. In the last 5 months there have been 2 at $25K (both had 900 miles) and one a couple grand less than that, that is in my garage. At $25K or less you have to be able to jump on it immediately. There is one in the Seattle area at $26K and change right now. Granted I see them for $30K + a lot but who pays that for a used one? Have patience and be ready when a deal comes along.

My 2 cents...

It seems that these deals are always around when I'm not ready for them. The next time I will be ready for it. GT500 here I come.

yeah, it really seems like a great deal, but it is USED!
I got my new 2008 vert yesterday and paid a lot more than $22,000 but my warranty is good for 3 years from today. I was just glad the weak economy finally gave me a break instead of heartburn!

Girlfriend approval?!?!
What's gonna happen to you if you marry her?
Will you shave your b@lls for her?

Joke aside, too bad you missed that deal...
Any of us would have jumped on that for sure
You know, the GT500 prices are looking mighty good lately.
