Mark Blackowski - 2012 ford Mustang BOSS
Well at 1st i tried to Buy this car from my local Ford dealer,(Rt 23 Auto mall) i put down a small deposit and they said we hope to get a production # buy October. So i asked Donna the sales women if she knew of any in the area .She proceeded to give me the name of 3 Ford dealers 1 in Virginia the other 2 in Long Island and Watkins Glenn NY . So i call Virginia and they had One in Blaze Yellow (my color Choice) and i made an offer and he put me on hold to check with the manager . After a short time Steve said the they just made a Deal with a Museum in Norway to purchase the car for $55 K.and that he was expecting a Black one shortly. Well i said no thanks i want Blaze Yellow.
The next day i called Lucas Ford in Long Island and they were just getting the car off the truck as we speak. That was music to my ears. After finding out about the Blaze BOSS he said the dealer was set in the price of $55K because they had to move a few of the cars around to get that one.So i made an offer which was not to there liking and i said Cash and he said no. so i said that i"ll wait for mine to be built.
Mean while Speccio Ford in Watkins Glenn was waiting for there BOSS to arrive that they had won in a Ford Dealer lottery and they would call me when they got the car in.
2 eeks went by and Charlie call me back and says that they wanted to get about $49.900 for it.I told him that i had ordered one for Route 23 auto mall for $48.500 if they would take that i could get the car buy the middle of July. He countered with an offer of $49.200 so i figured i wouldn't cry over $500 bucks and said SOLD. This was on a Monday. By Friday i had the money order and on Saturday my son and i took the 269 mile trip to the Glenn and Purchased # 1132 the 150th BOSS of 172 to be produced in Yellow Blaze Tri Color. It was one of the greatest days of my life .
I drove it around town just to see the area , when we got back we made the deal and she was mine. The weather was perfect about 80* sunny and know one on those country road for miles !!!!!!. Needless to say i let my son drive it all the way back for up state NY to WM New Jersey. It is now tucked away under it's custom car cover for the winter. Thans Charlie and thank you Late Model Resto !!!!!
