Newly listed GT-C on Autotrader.

Pretty good price,for anyone looking.

http://www.autotrade...ingId=322959253

 

 

Congrats wylecayote on picking up #28.

The smiling never stops with these cars...

 

 

I asked the seller on Auto Trader for the CSM, it's 08SGT0039. I was also sent a bunch of pictures, 42 of them. Whats weird is the emailed response below. Might be legitimate but it smells bad.

 

Hi again,

 

After i finished the divorce i have moved to my parents home in Helena, MT for a while, because i think they are only people who can help me to pass this difficult situation.Besides, there are a lot of things which have priority now, so, this car has to go. First you have to know that the car is 100% working and looking AMAZING, no scratches or any kind of damage, no engine problems,it has clean title, cleared of any obligations or fees and it is registered in my name.

I want to tell you that we will use Google Checkout in this transaction in order for both of us to be 100% protected and insured by them. Google Checkout will supervise this transaction so there won`t be any problems.

They will take care of the shipping and all the small details. You will get the car and you will have 7 days of inspection in which you can decide if you buy the car or not. If you won`t like my car (not your case) you notify Google Checkout and you send the car back on my cost,if you want to keep it you announce Google Checkout to send me the money (payment method and all the details will be set up by Google Checkout) and you keep the car. Google Checkout will send you an invoice at your email which you will see how to start this transaction and in were you can see that this transaction is legit. Please get back to me with your full name and full address so i can forward your details to Google Checkout in order for you to receive the invoice. One more thing, after I register the deal Google Checkout Transactions staff will contact you on your cell# and explain you exactly what are the next steps needed to be taken,

 

Thank you!

 

PS: You can read more about Google Checkout on http://sites.google....site/howgcworks

i would get someone to inspect it locally and if interested a cash deal. I bet they will come up with some excuse

 

 

I'll hit them back on email and see what they say.

If you tell them the deal has to be cash in person, you won't hear another peep from them.

When I first saw the listing with the price of 21,500.

I was thinking it was to good to be true.

Sounds like that might be the case here, too bad.

Would have liked someone here to get a good deal on a GT-C

I have a question for you guys.......The interior upgrade in the most (except one) of the GO GT-C what was about it? How was the stock interior?

 

Thanks,

The Interior Upgrade Package includes a bright polished 6 gauge instrument cluster with the My Color feature (adds 2 gauges), a bright shift knob, satin register vents, satin aluminum spokes on the steering wheel, satin aluminum door latches, a door scuff plate, a message center (computer with average speed, average fuel consumption, instantaneous fuel consumption and range for remaining fuel), a leather-wrapped steering wheel, Dark Charcoal Aberdeen pattern front door panel inserts, and either the Satin Aluminum Instrument Panel Appliqué or the Woven Charcoal Aluminum Instrument Panel Appliqué with a Ribbed Pattern. All of the GT-C’s with the Interior Upgrade Package have the Satin Aluminum Instrument Panel Appliqué. Actually, 3 GT-C’s were produced without the Interior Upgrade Package.

I just changed the signature photo. Factory chrome wheels (64A) were installed on the GT-C on June 14th. Does anyone have thoughts on painting the calipers grabber orange? Has anyone done that and like it?

Car and wheels look great. I've certainly considered painting my calipers several times. Probably like you I'd really like to see a car done before I press the trigger. This is what I've been looking at, http://www.g2usa.com/product/G3.html

I have been thinking the same thing. Even looking at the same kit to do it with.

Just worried that it may be a bit too much when done.

Went to the Rocky Mountain Mustang Roundup in Steamboat Springs Co. over Fathers day weekend.

You go into the car show thinking there are only 215 of these cars and who else would have one around here ?

Not only was there another one,it was only 4 numbers away from mine.

Sorry did't get the owners name,but #46 is a Colorado car.

Sorry did't get the owners name,but #46 is a Colorado car.

 

#46 was originally sold to Larry Green Ford in southern CA, but ended up at Go Ford West in Wheat Ridge, CO, and was registered by its first owner in Golden, CO. It is the only one I know of in CO, but there was another one registered in WY when new...#176 in Casper, WY on 6/5/08. That is pretty amazing that you happened to be at the same show! At least your cars were not identical. You have the Shaker 1000, and that car has the Navigation instead. The 5-speed GT-C's with the Shaker 1000 are more rare than those with the Navigation!

Great info thanks..

Will be on the lookout for #176.

Don't go to many shows North of Cheyenne so maybe thats why I have not seen it.

 

BTW the chrome wheels look pretty sharp.

I told Carroll Shelby the sales guy said the CS on my GT/CS stood for "Carroll Shelby"; Carroll Shelby said to me, "Or Chicken Sh*T". I said to Carroll Shelby, "That's what I was afraid of. Guess I'll have to take it back". End of story.

Where did you get the chrome wheels?

 

I purchased them through a Ford dealer. They are the same as the stock Shelby rim, except in show chrome. They were available as an option in 2008 on the Mustang GT for $1,185, but cost much more through Ford parts!

Almost time for a road trip. This year I'll be driving from L.A. to Kansas to meet some old friends in the Black Mustang Club for dinner and a cruise. (mid August) I will be taking the I-15 up into Colorado then heading across I-70 down into Kansas. So far this year I have made a couple trips to Vegas (once for the rev off tribute) I also made a trip to St George Utah. Later In October I will be heading to Vegas for a small Mustang show I sponsor every year. After Vegas I will be heading east to Tennessee/ N Carolina for a Tail of the Dragon run with some Mustang friends. Here's a pic frpm last years 5000 mile+, 20 state 9-11 tribute run to Washington D.C. : Sept112011Trip503.jpg
