Where to buy 07 Shelby GT500?

My boss is looking to pick a brand new Shelby Cobra GT500 up...does anyone have any hookups at Ford dealerships? Some of these places are marking the car up 100%...but I guess depending on the place you can pick them up for close to sticker price.

Just curious if anyone has any hookups...

Thanks!

so Jim, your the guy that bought the other two? Did you get the red one? I went to buy mine there and they said there was some guy, real jerk they said, said he bought a few of them and there only red one...

I ended up with 42 blue ones because of you, I really wanted just 1 red one...

Wickstrom was also a big time SVT dealer before SVT got scrapped, so all the Cobras and cool shit were no big deal to them and they weren't ridiculously marked up like other places.

tell your boss that he is about 3 months too late, probably really hard to fine one now

They are available...but most of the dealers want close to 20k over sticker price.

I'm pretty sure dealers just started getting their shipments within the last few weeks?
