2002 SVTF/Sonic Blue/Cold Weather Package/Black EAP wheels
Purchased from a used car lot with 91K miles and a brand new OEM clutch (with the receipt from Bloomington Ford)

After showing him the private party KBB value of the car I printed & brought with me to help in negotiating the window sticker of $7,999 they had it marked at. I pulled out $6,000 cash in $100 bills and told him "take it or leave it" because I have 3 more lined up to look at and I know these cars. He had to go consult with his Manager, came back & said let's get the paperwork done.

Just goes to show when buying a car or for that matter anything else "cash in hand talks" and gets you a much better deal.
