Well, here goes another build thread. I know this will sound weird but this one may be the nicest of all my sn95 builds when it’s done. 1998 Saleen Mustang #15 originally Laser red. I got this car out of Las Vegas. It was originally sold and spent most of its life in New Mexico. I’ll follow with the for sale pics of it in Boulder, Nevada right near the Hoover Damn. This car didn’t start out as a full build but it’s then a turn and thought everyone would enjoy the work.

I know I'll never have a Jay Leno garage, but damn man. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't jealous of your mustang collection.

If you want to add a 70 to your collection and have a spare 25k, I know a guy.

Wow you don't waste any time !
Going to ditch that fmu in favor of injectors/tune ?
Yep, of course. I just pieced this this kit together for cheap...but the real build is coming. I was just fooling around with it at first lol
