Nice looking car though.

As for the dealer, they may know exactly what they are doing, and are counting on the buyer not knowing.

Re: its sad when a dealer clearly doesnt know what they are selling

I can't stand when you ask about a car or truck and its like a 2002 ford supercrew fx4 with 213,000 miles and there asking 13,900. I say wow that's a little high. All the salesman will say is ITS A GOOD TRUCK THOUGH. I cant stand it. I laugh most the time.

This works both ways sometimes, I know of a 01 lightning that sold for 8k that had 100xxx miles on it and the dealer listed it as a "regular" f-150

Just seen another ad for a mustang but it was one of those craigslist templates you know? And it was saying how it was a good family wagon haha? And I also can't stand when your on craigslist and they say that it's a black mustang but you click it and it's silver and the interior is what there are talking about? Idk as you can tell I spend alot of time on craigslist haha but it just annoys me lol

I thought about putting a V6 badge on my GT to be more "sleeper" like. But then I started thinkin' that other 'Stangs would be trying to show off in front of me.

Re: its sad when a dealer clearly doesnt know what they are selling

that uneven wear doesn't look good to me. body is in great shape... don't care too much for what they have done in exterior mods, but overall it looks like a pretty nice car.

not surprised to see a dealer label it as a GT. they do this kinda crap all the time. the title with GT will draw you in better than V6. could be that they know better and its just a gimmick to make a sale.

Almost as good as a kid a few years ago telling me he bought a mustang srs...

I slapped my forehead and explained what the srs on the dash stood for.

You have to give them credit they took some real detailed pictures of the car so they were not trying to hide anything.
