I was over by the Galleria yesterday and a guy in a new GT pulled up to me and we had a brief talk car to car. He said that he had recently totalled his Cobra and that he works for Tommie Vaughn.

Now the interesting part, he said that T. Vaughn was only getting two of the 07 Shelby Cobras and that they were going to be marked at 62,500.00 :eek:

Looks like I will be keeping old blue for a few more years until the price starts dropping.

The price and the first model year "bug" would keep me from buying them right away. Maybe I'll buy one as a graduation present to myself.....or ask my Uncle Larry... :D

That's a pretty steep price to pay just to be the first one on the block to have one of these?!! :eek:

Just as the 2000 R's and more recently, the GT's, price fell dramatically over a short period of time, so will these. Once production gets ramped up, those who waited will be rewarded with a more "reasonable" price.

I agree - this car is nice, however, it ain't worth $62,500.00!! :doubt:

I agree with Andy...
and I might add that this is pretty standard free market "first on the block", supply and demand at play.

The same thing is going to happen with the new C6 Z06 ...

And look at the price drop on C5 Z06s.... as if they are now a piece of crap or something.... NOT!!!

Those who are patient will be rewarded with a better deal... Less notoriety but a better deal...

I don't see that car becoming "Ho Hum"... ever!!! But the price will come down.
