    Have been dreaming for sometime and recently had an opportunity to get one (thank you amc stock :D), got it for $5k over sticker, biggest issue I have with the car is they drilled the front plate, it apparently has been on their sales floor for 6 weeks and they had issues selling it because when they got it and it went through pdi the dumbass actually drilled the front of a shelby! Also they were asking $50k over sticker LOL!
    Orange was not my first choice but it has grown on me, it has the recaro seats, I need to drop some weight for sure to get comfortable in them, gotta say they did an amazing job with this car!

    Sick! and btw, you have the garage setup I want, typical front garage doors and one open in the back to drive through right into an area with a lift.

    Congrats man. Honest question. How long did you let it idle in your garage just listening to it?

    Congrats on your new GT500. Awesome color combo.

    Recaro's are not made for big people. Ask me how I know. ;)

    Thanks, it was one of the main reasons I bought this place, love the pass through garage

    Thank you, I agree, for stock exhaust is sounds amazing! I could just let it idle and next to it haha..

    Congrats & enjoy.
    I would have had the dealership fix their drilling mistake, excellent teaching tool for the future..
