Agreed.

The flat angularity of the Challenger lends itself to the Saleen once-over moreso than the Camaro, IMPO.

Love that color, too!

I like it, somewhat. I don't care for Street Scene ground effects, except for the front splitter. The grille is nothing to write home about. It should definitely have halo's. I like the blackout of the trunk but it should have some sort of emblem in the middle IMO.

Isn't that a Stillen splitter?
The hood is very ugly. Didn't he bash the Camaro not too long ago? Now he's trying to get in the game? Who needs him, let him play with the pony boys.

Ugly ZL1? You're certainly in the minority there pal.

Sorry, gang, but 620 HP 6.2 liter 570 ftlb ain't gonna come free regardless of who did the car. That takes money to put on the street.

It isn't all trim doodads.

I will say that they did a great job inciting a riot in the Mustang crowd, which seriously hyped his cars.

Toward the end, they were selling versions north of $100k, which was nothing short of ridiculous.

I agree that we should be gentlemenly when we discuss those against whom we compete, but his trash talk sure did make him some Mustang money.

Saleen fell flat on it's face with this one. $100,000? LAUGH OUT LOUD!

The chrome strip in the upper front grille looks like what I added to mine. I bought 10' of door molding, left the factory bowtie with black 'camaro' letters added to the gold center, cut two pieces to match up to the bowtie on both sides to the headlights. !0' got me 5 total pieces, so if one installed piece gets damaged, have 3 more to replace it. Cost: $17. NO pics of it in my album yet , but their coming!

This is extremely poor build quality for a auctioned car. Especially for the hype built upon this. I liked the rendition better than the actual car.

Glad the 100K went to charity, but a s/c 1SS non RS with a stillen body kit?
Saleen should stick to mustangs.
