How lucky can one person be when buying a car?

How lucky can one person be when buying a car? Better yet how stupid can a salesman be ?


Imagine being in this situation and owning this......even if it is a Ford.

THATS BIG COMING FROM ME


Funny part this happened right here in DFW

How one lucky Mustang enthusiast bought Boss 302 #0001 | Mustangs Daily

I read the article on Jalopnik that was actually written by the guy that bought that car. It seems like it's been a huge headache for him. He's auctioning it off right now as a two for 1 deal. Pay that one off and pay for another one, and the person can have 0001. I think that's pretty reasonable of him.

I don't think the salesman or dealership were stupid. From his article he had sent alot of business the way of that dealership, and they were returning the favor.

I first saw it on the news here the other night. The dealership called back to buy the car back when they realized what they sold lol OMG get it back we could make big $$$$$$$$$ on that .

Funny thing the news said it sat on the car lot for 3 weeks before a phone call was given to the owner saying the kind of car you are ordering is right down the road from you.


When he pointed it out to the salesman this is Car Vin 001 the dealer said thats of that color....thats why I say idiot salesman




Yeah the owner said on the news he feels abd using this car as a daily driver and toting the kids to and from school in this car. All he wants is to sell it and get another 302 and have it paid off. Keeping it in a garage for years to come isnt a option as this was all he could afford.



I'm shocked Ford didnt send this car to Barrett Jackson.

So for all the enthusiasm the mustang guys seem to have, how did this car slip threw the cracks so easily? Do you suppose the first ZL1 Camaro will just sit in a showroom somewhere without attention? I doubt it. I would have expected some big time mustang guy to have drove it off the line because he paid major bucks for the honor to do it. Weird stuff but **** lucky for that guy to get it!

sicker than most.

What's one more official special edition Mustang? I mean hell...How many official special editions do they have, or have they had in just the last 2-3 years? There's only one special Camaro right now, the ZL1.

I personally believe the BOSS 302 is the best special edition they've ever offered. I love them.

why would you build another motor to drive the car? why not just buy another boss? it would be worth it in the long run.
