So they took this new GT and did what you see, I also got all the parts that they took off except for the stock wheels and tires. Its the best thing I ever did, because the 1970 Boss I just sold was a numbers matching car, signed under the hood by Larry Shinoda, had won many awards, was in two magazine articles on and on. I bought it that way and never really fell in love with that car, maybe because I didn't do anything to make the car like it was So I got to thinking that not buying that new Boss was not so bad because I once again would have a limited build car, would I ever want to make changes to it that would effect its worth. So when I saw this car I just knew it was the one, I can drive it, change things on it and just drive it,,,,,,,Hope this all makes sense.

Glad I'm not the only one thinking that way. Even if the Boss was within my budget, I think I would have gone with the exact car I did anyway. It's a blank slate & not much of a limited production--it's a Brembo car, but there does not seem to be any kind of "special model" buzz around it. With a Boss, I'd second-guess any mods for the same reason as you.

I agree. The boss was within my budget, but I'm happier with the GT. I still have at least 3 more weeks to wait, though...

Me too. I finished all the paperwork and it felt like it took forever. The car wasnt even that dirty.

Cool Re: My new 2013 Grabber Blue GT

I remember waiting for my 2009 Mustang. That time I actually just grabbed it from the lot. It still took around 5 hours to complete all of the paperwork. I got to drive it home that day, though. I can't believe it takes this long to build one, but I guess that's the price you gotta pay for getting everything just the way you want it.

[QUOTE=TommyV;1256219]Here's Rob's car, pretty sweet!
I love what was done to this car. I have the same model and basically ended up doing the same thing to it. I don't know what kind of exhaust is on the car but today I put on my roush axelback. It sounds sick. I highly recommend it.
