Sold my "Roush Powered" serial numberless Mustang
We had a discussion on retaining values on Roush numbered cars vs Mustangs with substantial Roush modifications done & warranted by an authorized dealer. Of course no one agreed those with serial # cars were offended. (Smile)
Not to rehash the WW III bloodletting all over again, but just to add some "real world data" rather than opinion to the discussion of the choice of buying a "new serial numbered Roush" vs "buying a brand new Mustang GT & having an authorized Roush dealer modify it" to your taste!
Here's some REAL world data on my car. I bought a new '08 GT Mustang & had a Roush Supercharger package with the Cold Air Injection packaged added. I drove it from early '08 to 10/5/14 which was is approaching 8 years.
I just sold it for $25K which was what I paid for the new Mustang less tax. So essentially, I only lost the cost of the Roush supercharger & taxes when I sold it. Because I was not selling a serial # Roush, I could sell it for far less because I had far less invested in it. That opened it up to more buyers that could not afford a serial # Roush, Shelby, or Saleen, but could afford $25K for my car. I had lots of people who wanted to buy it at that price.
Everyone should buy what they want without anyone's criticism. I only add this info. to help people make up their minds on how to spend their money. Having to do it again, I would now buy a 2014 or 2015 GT & have a Roush Supercharger installed by an Authorized Dealer. It is not a serial numbered car, but the numbers work for me!
