Saleen's Parnelli Jones Mustang

Fabulous vehicle, though a bit pricey! I like the 302 version of the 4.6 (all Ford performance engines should be marketed in cubic inches instead of in liters), and who can't like 370 HP without power adders? The high compression sorta negates adding boost later, though...
Things I like: The engine, the engine, the engine, the memories of the great Parnelli Jones, the wide tires, the Minilite (or Minilite replicas) wheels, the black-painted rear panel that has that awful Mustang GT faux gas cap removed, the hood pins, the paint job, and the slats.
Things I don't like: The rear wing (I don't like any rear wings), the hood scoop (I don't like any hood scoops), and that "WTF-were-they-thinking" stainless steel "rim" around the taillights and black-painted rear panel!!
I was a young man when Parnelli raced Boss 302s (I saw him win at Laguna Seca in No. 15 in 1970), and those Boss 302s never raced with a rear wing or with a hood scoop or with a "rim" around the taillights and black-painted rear panel!!! They didn't race with the rear-window slats, either, but I must admit they do look cool!

The car doesnt look that good it looks like the GT mustangs that are out right now and im sure will cost alot more then the shelby and not have near as much power as the shelby and it sure dosent come close to looking as awesome as the shelby looks. I give it 2 thumbs down way down it will probably barely compete with the 04 cobras out right now let alone a shelby.

I hate bumping an old thread but I wanted to post this picture I found on Saleen's website. I wish I could get it in a larger version but this will do.

This was from a Saleen / Parnelli Jones signing event.
