The story on my car is that the dealership ordered it for a customer. Ford took to long with building the car so he just bought a Mustang off the lot.

The salesmen said at the time, October 2009, Ford was only doing a run of coupes when they had enough orders for them.

On a whim, I stopped by the dealership and saw the car. This was in March 2010.

The salesmen said that no one wanted the car because it was a 5 speed. He also said that the younger folks that actually wanted the car could not get the fincancing.

I told him I had to have it because it was a 5 speed. A few hours later I was driving home in it.

I don’t regret my purchase at all. It’s a fun car. Plus, as I am finding out its fairly rare.
Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool.
