Last winter I saw closeout deals for 16,999 on new GTs.  They were
just using them to get people in the showrooms, but you COULD get
one for that price with no options.

Yep, and that's great as long as they knew that going in.  I would just
hate to see SVO owners not driving their cars, thinking they're going to
get rich off it someday.  Keep it nice enough, and maybe it will buy you
most of a new one someday, though, if that's what you want.

That's cool that he brought it out for shows, even though that's not my
thing.  I've just seen some of those guys NEVER bring the car out...
