Congrats Robbie! Sounds like I need to go to Capitol Ford for my GT 500.... :rotf:thanks everybody the experience with Capital Ford was excellent. It was actuially the first time that I have bought a car and had no complaints. I spent maybe 30-40 mins in the dealership to pick up the car. That time was spent waiting on the car to be washed. Yeah anyways Brantley Willis is quite a salesman and could help anybody here find their GT500. When I walked in the dealership he never left me until I drove off the lot

congrats on the phat ride. my sister-in-law works there. when I bought my 03 cobra I was able to get for the "A" plan price when others couldnt. then I flew up there and drove it home for a quick brake in. I had the same experiance with the speed through the paperwork process.

love that color combo... now get to the modding

Get the straight thru Bassini SS Race Axleback - will be a nice sound without being too loud.

Unless, of course, you put a catless X-pipe with it. :D

Congrats on the Shelby. Looks Great!

Capital was willing to order 08's a MSRP as early as September 07. They are generally pretty reasonable. With that said, they had 5 07's on the lot they would not budge on which pissed me off really bad. They said they bought other dealers allotments and couldn't let them go for less then 15k over, but they would order me one at MSRP. I didn't want to wait and it did not make sense.

Overall, I would use them again. They are a great group or people and we have purchased dozens of cars from them.

I talked with them concerning the 07's and they actually bought all of them from other dealers at sticker or $5000.00 above sticker. The $15,000.00 over is so they make $10,000.00 on the deal.

Congrats on the Shelby. Looks Great!

You do have a 600hp Cobra ... oops, 600hp Shelby! (Gotta keep those Cobra wanna-be's in line!):D In fact, your Shelby has more horsepower than my car and both of them are pigs! :bounce: I guess it just must be the driver! :lol: :rotf::rotf:

That looks like a very happy group of Shelby owners. The car looks good, too. :) After all, red is the dominant/fastest color! :D
