Why are so many of you pretending to be surprised that the Shelby is going to be expensive. Pricing has been anticipated to be exactly what has been announced. This is old news. The Shelby is special, and congrats to Ford for bringing it out. It wasn't intended to be for everyone. The original Shelbys were beyond what Mustang buyers could afford back in the sixties. Or maybe most of you weren't around back then. Nothing's changed. I hear "it should be priced for the working man", and "I'm never buying a Ford again". Grow up. Either you're in or you're out. I'll take it a step further; if you can't pay $CASH$ for the Shelby you can't afford it. Whining about fairness or greed is meaningless unless you get off on hearing yourself complain! Going through life complaining about what you CAN'T afford pegs you as a loser. There are people in this world that would treasure a good cooking pot, or a water well that won't make their kids sick, and we're crying about not affording a $60-Grand toy! I want a 27-foot Grady-White. Maybe I should go on a boating message board and whine about how Gradys are over priced, and I deserve one for less money. I mean why should the boat broker make a profit? Screw the boat broker and screw the market, it's only about me. The fact that thousands of other people are willing to pay more than me isn't important. If you can't afford the Shelby, buy a GT. If you can't afford the GT, buy the SIX. That's why they make different models-for different income levels. OK, that's my rant, and I'm sure I broke some kind of "be nice" posting rules, but for Crysake give it a rest!
