Especially in black....
They let me sit in one, last spring on the SAE world conference in Detroit.
I just read something funny in a article by Jay Leno, which appeared in Popular Mechanics:
Of course, some people don't know I've already got my car on order, so I'm getting lots of calls from Ford sales guys. And the conversations usually go something like this:
"Are you aware of the new Ford GT?"
I always say, "I've heard something about it. Are they available?"
And they say, "We have one."
To which I always say, "What's its serial number?"
And there's a long pause. "Well, we don't have it here yet, but we will have it."
And I ask, "What are you asking for the car?" And they're all like $450,000. So I say, "I just want one. I don't want three."
And they say, "Well, that is one."
So I say, "What is the list price of the car?"
And there's another long pause. Then the salesman always says, "Well, they're hard to get.''
So I reply, "I feel bad. Are you guys making enough on this? Can't I chip in a little more?"
And then I add, "Read your dealer newsletter. I bought the first one."
