    Does anyone have any idea on the number of 00R cars that have been destroyed?

    Did Ford keep any for their own collection?

    Just wondering..........

    Tnx,

    I'd say we've seen at least 10 mentioned in various posts here over the past few years wrecked...

    00R Flood

    HI

    The flood one on eBay............I saw it too.

    What did it sell for? Do you remember.

    MY 00R should arrive Monday.

    The one wrecked at Woodward, at World Headquarters parking lot, a few yrs. back, if we're talking on the same page, was a test mule(not a real '00R). He was a SVT employee, and didn't lose his job because he 'fessed up to clowning around. If he had tried to lie about it, John Coletti said he would have taken more action.

    Come on now Bruce, you know years ago (2000) digital cameras and phones with video weren't around the way they are today.. Plus it happened on Ford HQ property and security was all over it quicker than flys on sh*t... I was looking for souvenier pieces but didn't get any :coolman:

    Dave,

    I was there also. I didn't see it happen, but heard it. Then everyone gatherd around where it happend. The broken front splitter laid there for quite sometime after the car was gone. We had to get in line to cruise down to Woodward, I think. It's been soooo looong ago, like you said (7yrs.).

    Watch eBay. That's where I scored my 58 mile, never titled one in 2005.

    I would say the first owner is whoevers name is on the original bill of sale. If this 00R was still at its original Ford dealer, then yes, Mike H is the first owner. If it was purchased by someone else who chose not to title it, then Mike H is not the first owner, but instead the first "titled owner".

    I know of a 95R that was sold from car collector/dealer to car collector/dealer without ever getting the title established, this was in 2003. The car had been bought and sold at least 5 times, and the people who owned the car used "dealer tags" to drive/use the 95R without ever transfering the title, it had 3100+ miles on it and had never had the original MSO changed to a title, many owners, but no title. I looked at this car when I was first interested in buying a 95R. The lack of a title on a 8 year old car sent up red flags. I contacted the Fla. DMV to see how I could buy this 95R and get it titled in my name?, as I showed the girl behind the counter a copy of the MSO. The first question she asked me was, "who is going to pay the original taxes on the $38,559 MSRP as listed on the MSO?" It seems that no one up to that time was interested in paying the bucks to get this 95R titled, but instead used it for a toy and then pasted it on. The current owner told me I would have to pay those taxes if I wanted the car and he would not deduct the taxes from the selling price, I passed.

    Yes, sorry. I should have been clearer. It sat in a Ford dealer's showroom in Louisville, driven once to a show with dealer tags on it.

    Few questions,

    The story about the guy wrecking the R at the HQ is crazy! What is the full story, I mean did he just try to do a burnout or something and crash it ?

    Where is Job 1 00R ?
