Roush Im a newbie, here's my story! glad to be part of SN

God, i miss her! .... the car :lol:

I then thought of ordering a 2007 C6 corvette...black and modding it. This and that happened, bottom line...ive always been a Saleen fan plus i knew all the right people in all the right places. I was going to order an 07 S/C saleen in black and mod it a little, but i went to the dealer to order it and met my Saleen contact there when he told me he could get me the E that is sitting on the floor for the same price....how could i refuse? :shrug:

(#162)

Here she is, in FULL ... i dont have many pictures since were still dead cold winter here, but ill give you what i got! Enjoy! ... im sure you know all the stock specs on the E...forged internals, 550 hp...blah blah lol. for 06, this car is 1 in 5 with the tungsten grey/scenic roof combo.

I did pick the car up on the lot, so that explains the color, which is okay except for the purple hue, just prefer black, but i had to over look that for the car i got, and the wheels, because i planed on ordering the 5-spoke wheel upgrade.

Within the next month while its getting warm out, im taking it to SSV (Saleen) to knock out that rear window and get that quarter panel installed, and doing a tint on the windows, but not sure what darkness i want to do yet (i think 5% would not look that good on this car)

Nice pix. Sweet rides. All, uh, three of them...:D

Flame me for asking this, but you knock out the rear window and put in what exactly?

Sorry for not being clear. The rear quarter glass. The window right behind the driverside and passenger side door where saleen puts that ugly plastic thing over the window, well there is an option and its standard on the 07 Extreme's to break out the window and put in a body panel that matches the car, im sure you've seen it at saleen.com

HAHAHA

that post rocks, brother!

BTW Extreme 550, that post is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay better than the ongoing mess in the Cobra Saleen v. E car post.

I like both of your cars. You must have serious cash to spend on them mods. I 'm sittin around contemplating whether to buy the $175 mgw shifter or the $300 Chicane center pipes, and you're out there buyin freakin $1000 hoods for your 281 with every other mod under the sun, and then a 70k supercar.

I must be in the wrong line of work.

Anyways, great pics.
