If I may ask , how much did you pay for your 2008 Bullitt?
Thanks , I am just curious how much some of these change hands and I buy what I like and not what I think I can make money on.Bought my '09 new...licensed and out the door $30,075. Probably worth less than half that at 31.000 miles. That's why I plan on driving my money out it until one of us dies. It's not a car I'll ever be crazy over, but it's a well balanced driver that does the job I bought it for.
I just recently bought mine and I simply feel the same way about it. My story is long so will save it for another day but I bought 1925 with a salvage titleFrom 1st owner, '08 with 5,500 miles in early 12/2011, $24K, from asking of $24.5K. Like new condition, lightly modified, every mod was one I would have done. Best mod was the post OEM H pipe 3" Magnaflow exhaust, very similar to FRPP KR muffler. What great music!
Now, 98K miles, 29 states coast to coast, numerous Bullitthead gatherings meeting the BEST FOLKS WHO ARE FAMILY, 50+ road course track days at 8 tracks, BLLTT has provided Susan and I with the best encouters and memories, looking forward to more...
Mods, that is another story. But worth all making BLLTT my dream machine...
Every time I fire up BLLTT, I relax and smile... $ worth spent. Pry my dead hands from the steering wheel and shifter.
That is cool Gary.Bought 5414 for $8,000 plus $450 shipping (clear title) with 121,000 miles and the original motor replaced (there is evidence the original motor was supercharged before it blew), had to replace the h-pipe and cats and found an original intake tube, scoop and filter (all found cheap on Craigslist). I also had some original Bullitt wheels laying around to go on it.
Oh, I knew I'd never make money on it. I just had some buyer's remorse that wasn't the car's fault, it was me. Somehow I'd hoped it would be more of a thrill ride, and not so much what it is...a well balanced car that does everything well but nothing in a spectacular manner.Thanks , I am just curious how much some of these change hands and I buy what I like and not what I think I can make money on.
