Put a deposit on a new toy

I was looking for a standard 2012 Mustang Boss but couldn't find one that wasn't marked up heavily. After contacting 8 dealerships, I came across a Boss Laguna Seca at MSRP and jumped on it. It's slotted to be built in the 2nd quarter of this year.





Some photos for those interested:

That is a lot for a Mustang! I suppose though that my perception is a bit skewed on the matter being that I'm able to get them @ dealership cost plus transportation fees. I was looking at them a few months ago and got a quote for around $30k or thereabouts.

What made you want to get a Mustang if you don't mind me asking? Collectors car, favorite car growing up?

I got it because it's a track-oriented performance bargain. I guess I could have purchased a used Z06 but liked the idea of something a bit different. Plus, the Boss heritage and ostentatious graphics grabbed me.

I was on the fence and admiring it from afar until I read the first few reviews and then I had to have one.

You claiming you can get a Boss Laguna Seca for about 30K? If that were even remotely true you should be obligated to buy as many as you can to flip.
