#1037 of 1138 2008 Bullitt Mustang - Love it!
Jul 16, 2008 (2:38 pm)
My name is McQueen . . . Jeff McQueen and I live in Detroit. When I met Ford CEO, Alan Mulally last April and he saw my last name on my business card, he informed me Ford would launch the 2008 Bullitt in the Fall of 2007, and suggested I get one.
My Bullitt arrived in February 2008 and I've been having a blast. I quickly learned how to drive a manual transmission, and I've had it up to 140 MPH on one of the local hignways.
I also find people looking at my car when I park it in a public place.
I foten play Sheryl Crow's "Steve McQueen: song when crusing on Woodward Avenue. I plan on entering it in this year's Woodward Cruise.
I also have the MCQUEEN license plate for the State of Michigan on the car. How cool is that?
You can see photos of my car at www.imboc.com

My name is Bond...Jeff Bond and I live in London. When I met the Queen last year she suggested I get an Aston Martin. My Aston arrived in the Fall of 2007 and I have been enjoying speeds of 200-220 from London to Liverpool. It has extra large mirrors so I can check myself out periodically. Although I have abused the self eject passenger seat on several occasions, the car is near perfect. I always find people staring at the car in public places, especially as I am blasting "Live and Let Die" by Paul McCartney and Wings.
My License plate reads IMCOOL
#1040 of 1138 Mustang Price
Aug 24, 2008 (5:33 pm)
Well mine buy was not a new Mustang wish it was but what i found i'm very happy withthe price i paid for a 2004 Mustang Gt Convertible. love the car. i found it on cars .com. when i started looking it was $19788 and after about 2 months looking a about 6 different one within 150 miles of where i live . the one i boought was the right price and miles. it only has 23,000 miles on it and after looking for that time the price kept coming down. it was a 1 owner car and very well maintained. not accidents. nothing show up on Carfax. so my wife and i asked the dealer if they would take what we offer and they saif that they we're sure they could go that low. i asked it they would take $16500. they were asking 17988. i called my Credit union and asked if they would go for that price and i called the dealer it see if they would take my offer. they said call back in 1 hour. so i called back and they said that they would go as low as 16750 and i said ok. so we got well under Kelly Blue book. so i guess it pays to do your homework and it pays off. love the car last week my wife and i were on vacation and everyday was a Topless day. lol. the car . thanks Dan Heagy former VP Mustang Club of Maryland. BTW the 2004 is a replacement for my 98 GT that was totaled 2 years ago.

There seems to be 8K off Sticker for the labor day weekend sale that the dealersin SF South Bay are readily advertising. This seems to make the Mustang a very attractive buy at this price!

Thanks Mark? Or mschmal?
The state determined the paperwork was in fact shady. And I did go to the State Consumer Protection dept. actually! But I never felt like I wanted to get a lawyer involved although it was close because of teh arrogance or feigned innocence of the dealer.
Shame on me for forgetting to update this on here So cccompson was exactly correct in what I ended up with. The State of WI in their investigation determined basically that I was wronged on this. Although they stated the paperwork was not filled out properly by the dealer which led to the confusion. Duh!!
So they contacted the dealer and then contacted me. The dealer Gordie Boucher Ford in Menominee Falls, WI. offered to settle with me by proposing three options.
1. They would give me $300 cash.
2. They would pay the $100 deductible during my extended warranty period.
3. They would extend the full ESP for an additional year.
The State of WI. representitve told me that option #3 would be best for me because it would be just like another year on my original warranty. I politely explained to her that is not true as the ESP as good as it is does not cover everything bumper to bumper and also comes with a $100 deductable. So while the ESP is great it's not quite the same I explained.
Anyways, sorry to explain this so many months later and Mark I certainly appreciate your input man! I decided to accept option #3 which gets me very close to where I should have been to start with. I am comfortable with this solution but dissapointed that the dealer made me do this.
They could have simply offered this to me after my original complaint and we would have been good.
