It's all about value
By Wht/w/blu on
2008 Ford Shelby GT500 2dr Coupe (5.4L 8cyl S/C 6M)
Having owned a 65 GT350 that was $4906 OTD it was obvious that value was not a concern as that was astronomical then. Fast forward 44 yrs. and being able to get this car for $40k is simply amazing for what it is. There is nothing made on 4 wheels that can compare for the $. Others may nit pick, build quality, mileage, or a miriad of other little things, but it all comes back to bang for the buck. I have an 07 Porsche Turbo that may, or may not be a tick quicker, handles better, and better build but is 3 of these. This car is definitely better and faster than my 65 was, but seeing restored 65's going for $300k it's not in the cards. The economy has brought these cars down to $40k new, get 1.
Acceleration, handling, value, ext. styling
Just like any other commodity change & more stuff costs $. Ford SVT hit the nail on the head.
