NSX values have gone up, shelby values have finally gotten down...that's my reason and im sticking to it...lololololol.

Anyways, picking up a beautiful 2020 GT500 with only 900 miles on it today...perfectly equipped for me (no recaro, heated cooled seats, tech package, exposed carbon dash). Only real complaint is the color...so many good colors on this car and black is not my fave but I will live with it (for at least a few months, promise no gay wrap, lol)

car stickered around 81k and I got it for 86k. not the greatest deal but they seem to finally be coming down.

They are dropping it off later and I am currently in route to florida for work...can anyone go drive it for me while I am gone? haha...can't wait to get home and see it in person.

I hate black, but it fits this car well. I still never liked the large maw on these cars, but you can’t deny the performance.

Well, I will wait for your full review on this one. Have to believe that with your vast experience with performance cars we can get a decent opinion on its performance. Get that black ceramic coated ASAP!!! Hahahaha.

Congratulations!

I HIGHLY recommend that you get the paint corrected, detailed, and ceramic coated. Especially with black. It's well worth the money.

I've always kinda wondered, do you usually take losses on flipping through cars that much? I'm sure you try to buy for decent prices and offload when the time is right. And if not, and money ain't an issue, **** it right?

Seems like it would be difficult not to take a loss once taxes, registration, insurance, etc. are factored in. I guess one could argue you don't pay taxes on the value they give you on trade.

Done really well with my mclaren, Ferrari, zr1 and now the nsx. The values are all over the place. The zr1 profit will keep me ahead for a few years. Lolololol.

I wish I had pulled the trigger on a last gen viper a few years back. Those have doubled in value.

Yeah I hear that. I'm sure a lot of people made decent money over the last few years flipping cars. I still kick myself in the nut sack over the viper. Had been looking at viper for awhile, and had significantly increased my income when corona hit, and then the viper market exploded through the roof. Sad times for sure. Same thing with the ZR1... was looking at those too and same story.

I have a buddy that has since February of 2021 until now, has bought and SOLD:

19 GT350
18 Callaway ZL1
20 GT500
21 GT500 TP

He literally keeps them a month or 2, gets bored and gets something different. On top of that he put money into each for Paint correct, ceramic coat and PP. I honestly don't understand it. Kind of blows my mind actually but its not my money.

He currently has a 16 Porsche GT3 RS he just picked up last week.

Very nice! Black looks killer when it's clean, keeping it clean is the problem.

Professional Ceramic quote is a must for sure. I went from a Silver GT and Silver Expedition (wife's) to a Black Raptor and Black Stealth Edition Expedition. Had both coated right away and helps immensely.

OP, Beautiful car.
