    I know you are. I already talked with him about your build. We're both down to help you get that thing on the street brother....unless it will be riding on AFS wheels....I don't want that negative energy anywhere near me ;)

    Good point, I should just ship him all 4, because, you know, karma.
    Either way, this car will look sick on an MG/CF theme. And may have some fun with a built GT500 I know at Woodward. Guy can’t drive tho :)

    Let’s get this thing rolling with some before shots of the...roller. I always like to remember how bad something is when it starts so I can enjoy the end result after leaving no stone unturned. This car is definitely a 10 footer at best. The good news, it’s a real Saleen. The bad, it’s definitely had some pretty substandard paint/body work at some point. Some other nice findings like the car being jacked up by the core support a time or five. IMG_7038.JPG IMG_7037.JPG Sometimes we have to remind ourselves that these cars are nearly 20 years old now and the vast majority of them have a history that remains hidden until we tear em down. I’ve never been afraid of cosmetic damage. It can be made new again. As long as the bones are good I’m not scared of any car....depending on what I’m paying of course. This car needs...everything. My realistic estimate of what it will take to meet my expectations when all is said and done? Between $22-$25k. Some might say that’s a waste of money. I say wait until the end to determine if that’s the case or not. So tonight we’re going to get everything suspension and rear end wise out from under the car and get it ready for the newly built 8.8 and full MM suspension including coil overs on all four, torque arm and panhard bar. Once it’s rolling again on the new suspension....off to paint and body it will go. Without further delay here’s some fun/scary starting pics. I could post 20 more but here’s the general theme of the car’s current condition. IMG_7032.JPG IMG_7034.JPG IMG_7035.JPG IMG_7040.JPG IMG_7036.JPG

    Some of the positives. The car has a pretty clean shaved bay. That was one of the big selling features for me since I know what a pain that is and how time/cost consuming it is as well. This will allow for an ultra clean finished product as we wire in the Holley EFI. It’s very clean and straight underneath. And lastly the real Saleen part IMG_7041.JPG IMG_7042.JPG IMG_7045.JPG IMG_7046.JPG IMG_7044.JPG IMG_7047.JPG

    You didn’t miss it....I just didn’t say anything yet :) I’ll reveal that soon. There’s still some parts I am in the process of tracking down to finalize everything. It’s not a coyote though. That’s not a 60 day build. At least not for 2 guys only working evenings on the car
